Etsy Find: Bayan Hippo

12 Oct

I randomly stumbled across Bayan Hippo Handmade after one of her bags was featured as a handpicked item on Etsy. It was love at first site, and I immediately checked out everything in her shop. I love the variety of purses and bags that you can choose from and the variety of colors available–the dark mustard is gorgeous. Here are some of my favorites. I’ve already put two of them on my wish list.

For the Love of London

14 Sep

London is one of my favorite cities in the world. Actually, it’s probably my favorite. I love the people, the city, the theater, the sensibility…I could go on and on. In that theme, I’ve gathered some art from across the Web celebrating this wonderful city.

Etsy Find: Leah Giberson

10 Sep

I am so in love with the work of Leah Giberson. Her paintings of suburbia are simple, clean, and uncluttered, and I love her use of light and shadow.

Her art statement found in her etsy shop provides a beautiful explanation of her work:

“My current body of work falls somewhere between the worlds of photography, painting and collage. I begin with photographs of seemingly ordinary and mundane scenes, which I then paint directly upon to distill and reveal the visually poignant moments that exist all around us, but are often overlooked.

“There is a quiet anxiety and loneliness in these images of isolated houses, empty chairs, abandoned pools and vacant streets.”

Here are a handful of my favorites. (I really had a hard time narrowing them down.)

Etsy Find: Janet Hill Studio

24 Aug

Janet Hill is an immensely talented painter. I fell in love with her work as soon as I saw it—the scenes from everyday life, the interiors (the kitchen scenes are some of my favorites), the dresses, the women depicted. They’re just lovely. You can find originals and giclee prints for sale in her shop, and you can also follow her on her blog. The hardest part is really narrowing down the ones you love the most.

Here are some of my favorites:
