Friday Feature

It’s overcast and raining in Chicago this morning, but here, on the internet, it’s still bright and springy! (hmm.. perhaps this means I should get out more..)

Today I’m featuring this gorgeous Recycled Glass Planter from the shop of marianandhazel. I’m always a sucker for things  which take old stuff which would typically just be tossed out and make them into something beautiful, to be treasured. This is a perfect case in point. As the description says “stylish, pretty and practical!” I couldn’t agree more.

I love the beauty captured in the photography; understated colors with frosty white and just a pinch of spring green. Really lovely! Be sure to check out the other wonderful items in this shop!

And, next up for this week, I’m featuring this fantastic Painted Rabbit Wooden Brooch, handpainted and from the shop of JullMade. I love the whimsy of the image and the simplicity of the drawing. The colors are soft and lovely and I can’t help but wonder, what does the rabbit see? Is it contemplating yon clover field, or just popping up from its den to smell the crisp, fresh spring air while planning its adventures for the day?

Wonderful.

Definitely go and visit the shop to see all the other beautiful items listed there!

I've been active in the arts pretty much my entire life. Growing up, my home was filled with creativity; my dad's an accomplished painter and my mom has always harbored a great love for music and art and they passed it on down to their kids. When I was a little, my parents saw my avid interest (and inclination to draw on any available space - including school tests and myself) and they gave me a sketch book for my birthday and things have just blossomed from there. Officially, my main focus of study has been music, but my true love has always been art. I've been commissioned as an illustrator for kids books, a portrait painter, creator of center pieces for private parties and, most recently, a designer of kids clothes. My aim is for the designs to express a whimsical and playful feel to reflect the essence of childhood. However, I also strive to branch out from the generic "pink princess" and "sports fan" designs that are so prevalent out there. Every kid has their own personality, why not express it?
