Inspiration - vintage lace

Here's a little vintage inspiration for you this morning. Lace and crochet is so popular at the moment - this has some great detail - perhaps it will inspire you to make/draw something pretty :-)

I've seen some DIYs on this kind of lampshade but these are ready to hang and oh so lovely! The origami one is simple stunning - great job! From Zipper 8 Lighting.

Inspiration - pattern

Wallpaper from Anthropologie. I thought these were pretty nice when I saw them - they have a traditional screen printed look but I would be surprised if they were actually screen printed.

Spotted quilt

I ran across this on Pinterest and the link said it's from Garnet Hill but I couldn't see this dark version there - perhaps you can find it. There are lighter versions of this spotted design but I love this dark version. I love that name Garnet - I had a great uncle in Scotland who's first name was Garnet - Sir Garnet Wilson - love that name.

Guest post today at Nyla Free Design

I'm doing a guest post for well known interior designer, Nyla Free today. You can check it out right here. Nyla asked me, "What does modern mean to you, Fiona?" And, as most of you know, I don't do a whole lot of modern, so you might like to see my response ;-)

I was excited to read last week that Nyla is a finalist in the Western Living Designer of the Year event, which is a very prestigious award in the Pacific Northwest so congratulations Nyla - we're rooting for you!


This beautiful image is of the 'suitcase wall' from the actual studio of artist Gail Rieke. Click on this link to see a larger image - it's quite incredible, isn't it?And some other random suitcase images I had stashed away.

More old tins :-)

We love old tins, don't we? Well, if you'd like to see a really great collection, wait no more and check out this board at Pinterest.

Cartolina 2.1 a staff favorite at iTunes!

We have been very fortunate with the popularity of the Cartolina iPhone app and I never take it for granted - I am eternally grateful to every one of you who have downloaded it and I'm so thrilled that you continue to enjoy it. We started developing it over a year ago and I would never have imagined that it would be so successful - thank you! This weekend I noticed that the latest version of our app has been chosen as a 'Staff Favorite' which really thrilled me - I always check that list to see what the people at Apple are recommending, so it was a lovely surprise :-)
