A Little Bright - 3 things bright

Three things that are bright and lovely and caught my eye this week:

one – Chicago’s Boo + Boo Factory (love the name!) spotted on Design Crush - aaaa I love this necklace!  two – DIY tinted all natural raspberry lip balm from Hello Natural – and it is super easy  three – this sweet and modern Yellow feathers wall hanging from NZ’s own The Paperbird Society – so fun and bright.

Happy days happy nights – art print download

Happy days

We are pretty cold here still in Auckland – not as cold as some places granted – but chilly enough to keep me dreaming about the sun. When the sun does appear I love soaking it up as much as I possibly can. This new art print is inspired by this gorgeous photo which reminds me of cold, wintery but sunny days.

Simply click to download, print and enjoy!

Inspiration – buy or DIY – 1. Linen

I love the idea that if you have particular strengths in certain areas – such as DIY – you would be constantly inspired by seeing gorgeous products that you could make. And similarly if you don’t (like me with fabric/sewing) you can turn to gorgeous producers who make these items for you to buy. Thus, buy or DIY – but above all be inspired!

Today I am looking at patterns on fabrics and what you can create or buy.

First up – totes! Buy from these amazing sellers –  One – Zana Products // Two – Milkhaus Design

or DIY with this how to guide from Paper & Stitch.
