Ahh, to be in a world surrounded by prints.  If only my boyfriend, didn’t already think everything I own “looks like a rug.”

England: Liberty of London

Thursday, April 1st, 2010
Back from my trip from the UK.   One of the highlights was visiting the Liberty store in London.

I loved the amazing displays…
…loved the Quilty Pleasures at Liberty display…
(which included this amazing quilt made of Barbie Dresses)
… loved everything in the store…
(including this postcard set that i bought)
…and of course i totally loved the printed outside wall of the side of the store.
(I am going to live in a printed house when I grow up)

Josef Franc’s Textiles

Monday, May 25th, 2009

Here are some amazing prints by Swedish designer Josef Frank. After learning about Frank’s work from my friend Isabelle of Brass Thimbles, I started to realize that prints I have loved forever from places like Anthropologie were actually Josef Frank’s designs. If you are interested in buying any of his textiles you can do so at Svenskt Tenn.

Pgymy Elephant Print

Monday, May 11th, 2009

Another new print: Pygmy Elephants!

Borneo’s Pygmy elephants
are the smallest subspecies of elephant. They live in North East Borneo, mostly in the Malaysian state of Sabah. There are less than 1000 pygmy elephants left in the wild. There biggest threat like most species is habitat destruction and human-elephant conflicts. Pygmy elephants, like orangutans, are especially threatened by the palm oil industry.

You can help by adopting a Pygmy Elephant through WWF.

New Print

Saturday, March 14th, 2009

I’ve been working on prints all weekend. I have about 5 in the works prints – and was hoping to finish them all up this weekend since I finally had a little time. Yet, they always seem to suck up way more time than you’d expect. Finished 1 today! So I guess that is a start. Hopefully I’ll have another for tomorrow. Here you go:

NEW Jungle Blossom print by Daughter Earth. Coming soon to our website!
