Fun New Things

I keep meaning to show you some fun new things we bought this summer. First, from the only craft fair I got to go to, Art Star Craft Bazaar here in Philly, a dandelion tank top by SuperMaggie. In a really cute detail, there are a few dandelion seeds stencilled onto the back of the shirt as well, as though they blew over the shoulder. Perfect.

Incidentally, taking a break from my usual misanthropy, I actually chatted with the SuperMaggie duo, and they were totally lovely people.

Then, a couple of lovely presents from Misha for... Mother's Day? Our anniversary? Well, something - one of those many spring occasions that are very close together. The panda print is by Creative Thursday and the one of the girl sewing up a quilted castle is by Johanna Wright. Lara's interpretation of the latter? "That's a Christmas tree! And that's mommy brushing my hair."

I hung them on the wall by stealing this pants-hanger idea from Apartment Therapy's ohdeedoh. I feel like it needs one more print to look less random on the wall.

And finally as a memento of our San Francisco trip, we have this cool painting entitled (what else?) "Cow", by Georgianne Fastaia. I love the way it has exactly the same palette as the Ladensen collages, but its medium and execution is so wildly different. Really makes me happy to look at it on the wall every day.
