Pretty little festive pics from Camille Soulayrol. I love this first image with the burlap wrapped mirror that's decorated with flowers and birds and sprigs. This is such a great idea because you could change it for every season - or just pin your favourite treasures to it and let it evolve into a fascinating, personalized work of art(come to think of it, I luv that idea - this could be a weekend project for me.)

This olive sprig heart is fabulous too, isn't it. I'm going to try this.
Aren't these vessels great I love their shape and their decoration. Very inspiring! From Cynthia Vardhans - there are some wonderful, pretty, yet practical, items at this talented gal's shop.

Here are some fun vintage pieces from 5 Gardenias. I'd like to go shopping with this gal - she has a good eye - I always find things I like at her shop!

Blog Crush
I have a new blog crush her name is Dottie Angel. I adore this blog and can't wait to have more time to read through it. Crafty Brit with supreme sense of wit - you too will love her - go right now . . . . . . .

I ran across this collection of favourites yesterday on Flickr. These are the favourites of Hey Zee! - absolutely soothing and sumptuous - she has such a good eye. I think you will love her choices . . . enjoy . . . . .

I think you all have very good taste and I think you will appreciate this amazing map. The graphics are incredible. Printed in 1860, the colours couldn't be any brighter. Just a little bit of inspiration for my crafty friends.

Well I thought this big blue cupboard might get your attention! I wish it still had its glass doors, don't you? These fabulous images of modern country styling come to you courtesy of Canadian House and Home's website. I'm really liking those white kitchens . . .

Images from here
Little Flower
How sweet are these? From Little Flower Designs. I am completely smitten by the fresh, simple, hand painted designs - so much energy - just great! I hope you love them as much as I do.

I have to post these beautiful objects because they were deigned by artist Phiona Richards. (Have you any idea how hard it was for me to write that name without an 'F'?) I find this kind of book art really intriguing don't you? I can totally see the appeal of working with book pages.
