I have such a desert hankering right now. Jon and I watched Raising Arizona last night, which put the cactus landscape back at the front of my mind.

and the stamps are available in the shop of Verde Studio (but don't buy them because I'm going to!)

I wouldn't normally blog about Target but if you like flowers in high quantity and color, I would check out their Liberty of London Collection. It's pretty darn great. I think one of their best designer collaborations.

Sometimes I just want to look at cute faces!

Feeling introspective going into the weekend. But I'll be balancing that feeling with lots of cello practice in preparation for this.

Neat paper ephemera at thriftypyg. I can see the Asian bus tickets as a garland~

I'm enchanted by the photography at Lola's Room. The artist is Cassia Beck. So dreamy.

Looks like she's offering one free 5x5 print with every order right now.

Whimsical and bizarre and touching all at once.

Images from "Playing With Pictures: The Art of Victorian Photocollage," organized by Elizabeth Siegel for the Art Institute of Chicago and now on view at the Met.

You can see the full slide show, with accompanying history (very interesting!), here.


I was so charmed by these flowers!

"Seattle animators are bucking the computer animation trend, using lo-fi techniques to create lovely little films. See for yourself at the (free!) Local Animation Showcase, featuring work by the artists profiled in the March issue of Seattle magazine."

One of my best buddies, Tess Martin, is profiled in the story and will have her work on display.

It's terrific to see the work and setting of the Portland artist-couple behind APAK Studio. I've really loved their work after finding their cards at the Seattle Art Museum gift shop and then later at the Urban Craft Uprising this last December. The little universe they create is so bright and other-worldly but still familiar and cozy. I've already got my APAK Studio holiday cards ready for next year (thanks Brad!)

Pictorial tour of APAK Studio (and pictures above) posted by ShareSomeCandy. Check out their Workspaces series of to peek in on the studios of other artists and designers. Lots of creative eye candy!

I took these pictures of the white lights in our neighbor's cherry tree last night.

I'm working on a few sewing projects and birthday presents today. There's a white sky in Seattle this morning. Clear and white.
