Below, check out some of my favorites and shop the entire selection of embroidered patches here. READ POST

Parvum Opus: Marbled Paper Desk Accessories

When I stumbled upon the creations of Parvum Opus last week, I swooned. If you share my love of marbled papers and plaster intaglios, you just may too. Based in Michigan, the shop creates the most lovely bespoke desk accessories and frames using exquisite marbled papers. The pieces are all crafted by hand and each is truly one of a kind. I’m coveting a pair of marbled obelisks for our living room, a picture frame for my nightstand, and a letter sorter for my desk. Explore some of my favorite glimpses of Parvum Opus below (definitely kindred spirits!), and shop their collection here. READ POST

Best of Etsy: Brass Mobiles by Lappalainen

I’ve been coveting a beautiful mobile for some time now (remember these beauties?) and the striking creations by Lappalainen may have convinced me to pull the trigger. Made of brass, iron, and copper, each of their stunning, handcrafted designs are truly works of art. While I love the modern look of one hanging above a crib in a nursery, in our home, I think I’d hang it in a corner of the living room, bouncing around the sunlight. Shop their full collection here.

Artist Spotlight: Linocut Prints by The Inkery

Simon and I don’t always agree on art, but one medium we both love is the linocut print. These cool creations by The Inkery in Edinburgh, Scotland are both husband and wife approved. Each piece is printed by hand using vegetable oil based ink on acid free paper. I’m coveting the butterfly, thistle, and giraffe (and the dinosaur for a nursery!). They also make great gifts—I think my big brother needs the Boston Terrier (he has an adorable one named Hooper). Below, find some of my favorite linocut prints by The Inkery and shop their entire collection here. READ POST
