Welcome to Tombée Du Camion! This incredible shop is located in France, but lucky for us they have a very cool website with lots of fun eye candy! I am absolutely swooning at the site of all the bins in this photo! I wish I could "Bewitched" blink myself into that room!

Look how incredible these vignettes are! From what I can tell the store is chock-a-block full of amazing vintage ephemera, doll pieces, and other rare and fabulous objets d'arte!

These images are just set ups so that they can show their inventory off online, but I happen to think that these images would make lovely prints! Or cards! Something! I just love the design and feel! If you scroll over the images and click on the actual object, more stunning photography will appear.

BTW, I discovered this Tombée Du Camion while persusing a new blog! If you haven't seen Cafe Cartolina yet, run dont walk!

Glass Action Studio!

I am so excited that Deb Barnett, of Glass Action Studio, has finally opened up her Etsy shop! I have been wanting to share her awesome work for months, and now that she has an online home, I can!!!

These vases are just amazing! When hung from a window, the colors of each vase are insane! I keep 2 in my kitchen window for herb cuttings from the garden! Then I dont have to waste anything, the herbs stay fresh in water, and a lot of the times if it is a wonderfully smelling herb, like Rosemary, the whole kitchen will has the scent!

They come in all kinds of colors, shapes and sizes and are super affordable for such a beautiful handmade piece! These would be a great Mothers Day Gift!

The Art of Wooing

The Art Of Wooing, a new book described by author Kaz Brecher as a mixed media art and poetry book with a story told through email exchange”, is totally original and exciting! Kaz has created this beautifully illustrated book all about (you guessed it) the art of wooing, and everything that that entails. An autobiography of sorts, the artwork and poems illustrate the ups and downs of an 18 month long relationship Kaz had with her kickboxing instructor.

Many people use artistic expression and journaling as an outlet to help keep themselves focused and anchored. This book a fabulous example of just how effective a practice it can be! The book is self-published and available exclusively through the website.

This Thursday evening, 2/28, there will be a book release party in Los Angeles at Fresh Pressed. Come meet Kaz and pick up a copy of the book for yourself!

A girlfriend of mine is expecting a baby boy in March, and we were just discussing how owl crazy we both are. Here are a few boy-centric owl delights I found on Etsy. Maybe there is something here for the nursery???

Bacon Wrap Shawl!

It would be a lie to say that I haven't been neglecting my poor Creative swoon! I most certainly have, and I am not proud! But fear not, I have not vanished or given up I have just been overwhelmed and nuts! All is better now, and I am back!

You can thank this amazing Bacon Wrap, crotched by the amazing Lady Linoleum!! How could I not share this awesome creation?! She crocheted the whole thing with color changes so it would be reversible. Holy moly!
