Pichulik

Katherine-Mary Pichulik is a multi-talented local lass from Cape Town – she trained as a pastry chef, dabbled in the art world, worked on organic farms from Barcelona to Granada… then she started making jewellery after a backpacking trip to India. says Kat,

Frames

Taylor Holland created these frames from great works at the Louvre that he digitally filled with their own content. he’s currently partnering with antique restorers Sainthill Lijsten to make a physical prototype of this project by taking antique frames and filling them with hand-crafted moulds. absolutely love this idea… definitely a piece i could see hanging in my home.

Brook&Lyn

i have been following Mimi’s personal blog Brook & Lyn for a long while, but somehow only recently discovered the beautiful jewellery she designs … i guess this is what happens when you intermittently follow blogs through google reader and don’t check in on actual websites often enough. i like the idea behind the glass necklaces which were inspired by the story of Mimi’s friend’s great-grandmother who, to deflect negativity, would wear a mirror under her blouse. they’re hosting a sample sale on the agate pieces for the next few days, go have a gander.

Beetlebung Farm

Gabriela Herman took these beautiful photographs at Beetlebung Farm on Martha’s Vineyard where chef Chris Fischer hosts informal rustic dinners in the farm’s greenhouse (his family owns the place, and he’s a 12th generation “Vineyarder”). he cooks farm fresh produce like fingerling potatoes and beets dressed with red wine vinegar, salads topped with homemade goats cheese and freshly caught bluefish stuffed with herbs that’s cooked over the fire… holy moly, can you say heaven? heaven.

Hermine Van Dijck

Hermine is a Belgian textile designer who just presented her graduation collection at the school of arts in Ghent. here you can see some of her pieces photographed by the very talented Eefje. i love her colour palette, and would really kill for one of those fluffy carpets. make sure to pay Hermine’s blog a visit to see more of her process as well as what inspires her. plus, her plants are lovely… who doesn’t love a plant lover?

Metrode

metrode is a studio based in seattle that emphasises natural materials, classic style, and a neutral palette in their inventory of vintage finds & new handmade pieces. shop owner caitlin also recently collaborated with julia of rennes to bring some wonderful dotted tote bags and pouches. i never tire of quality leather accessories, i tells ya. caitlin also has a beautiful curated pinterest board if you care to follow.

Fancy French Cologne Giveaway

the giveaway is now closed. winner to be announced soon.


i have been practically bursting to launch this giveaway thanks to the fantastic ladies at Fancy French Cologne. firstly because shop owners Carly & Christine focus on bringing emerging designers to the fore, especially in their product collaborations with designers in their Entre Nous section (french for “between us”). and secondly because the giveaway has a little something to do with Downton Abbey (!)

Animal Love

i’m going to revive the photo bomb series because my flickr favourites are so vast, but i’ve decided to share new, old and favourite photographers theme by theme because otherwise all you get is a disconnected bunch of photos and this isn’t tumblr, folks. if you want to explore past flickr favourites in the archives, you can check out the photo bombflickr tags… or just browse the photography category.
