I came across Jim's work when I was living in England several years ago, and I bought this fabulous animal box which has become one of my favourite items. I also bought one of his mobiles as a gift for my nephew, and I now wish I had bought more from this talented artist.
Our local talent this week is Colours Of Australia who are based in Melbourne’s West (yes I am biased!) Renske Carbone is the talent behind these unique products and over the years she has developed her passion for textiles and felting into a wonderfully unique business sold under the Papoose label.
Their felt ranges are particularly gorgeous and I was lucky enough to have been given these products as a gift! I just adore them and intend to hang them on my walls, once I work out which room needs them!
Papoose also sell some fabulous craft packs including felt beads, wools and squares in a stunning array of colours, and it's easy to find a "must have" among the great selection of bags!
I don’t normally like to post about things that I discovered via other people’s blogs (as it can end up just re-hashing what others have written) but I have to make an exception today. I discovered this artist via Natasha Rosenberg's beautiful blog.
Anja is a German based illustrator and I am struggling to find the words to express my adoration of this artist so I will let her images speak for themselves. You MUST check out her website and blog .....and this one!
IN YOUR OWN TIME:
I hope this helps to kick start your week. Be sure to check back next week for a peek at some more great inspirations.
