Eva Magill-Oliver

I've been fortunate to work recently on some design pieces for artist, Eva Magill-Oliver.  I really admire her clever mixed media techniques and the tangible sense of mood and place she's able to manipulate with them.  Eva is from South Carolina and only recently returned to Atlanta  to live after two years of living in Paris!  In addition to her Fine Art, Eva is a flourishing illustrator and currently working on a children's book project with her husband Whit, called Sam et Sophie- read more about it on her website! xo

fine and dandy home

I ran across these sweet home views of shopkeeper, Shevie Moyle on Flickr awhile back.  Her home/workshop and brick-and-mortar vintage store, Fine and Dandy are located in Cornwall, UK. No online shop, yet... (keeping fingers crossed!) But check out more of her yummy collections and views of her home and shop on her blog, Paperdolly. xo
I love her pea green chair and Cath Kidston fabrics.

Little vignette with found treasures and a miniature clothesline handmade by Shevie!

Makes washday look positively cheery!

the lovely white owl

Revisiting my love affair with the white owl sister's creations today. I've been hiding out immersed in reading "The Age of Innocence" and can imagine the divine Madame Olenska wearing any one of these incredible pieces! xo

bebe + alice

A Big Ol' Thank You to my friend, Heather Baker of Bebe + Alice for the kindest housewarming surprises in the mail yesterday! (And I don't even have the house yet-please say a prayer and cross your fingers for us- as we have hit a another roadblock!) Anyhoo- Its been a long time coming for me to post about Bebe + Alice, (now two shops!) where she offers a wide selection of her  sweet upcycled vintage handmade home and wearable goods. This is one industrious and inspired woman and I am so thankful to have found such a lovely friend via the internets!  xoxo
