I discovered this painting at the MET museum and it is my latest inspiration. Greek mythology will play an important role in my trend book for fall 09.
The idea of Pandora unleashing the evils of the world upon mankind to leave only hope within the box is a theme that I plan to explore in the coming months.
The painting techniques used by Redon in the creation of the flora further inspire me to experiment with oil paint and the use of texture on silk.

Ashford Traditional

When I finally arrive in California this will be my first purchase (job and green card permitting!)
I have always wanted to spin and weave my own yarn and it's time for me to get working on some serious textiles!

Travel Journal

I recently discovered the company Smythson and fell in love with its books and stationery. They have an extensive range of classy products such as this travel journal which I intend to use this August as I chart my way across America.

I found this collection of dinnerware from fishseddy and I really love it. I purchased three small plates to mount on the wall. The whole collection is truly lovely and the black and white classic illustrations are charming.
