Textiles – Skinny LaMinx

It's taken me a while to catch up from everything that happened over the Thanksgiving holiday, so I just now found out that Heather from Skinny LaMinx added these gorgeous pillow covers to her shop:

I'm absolutely in love with the mustard-color Summer Weeds pattern.  At the moment, only the green pillow cushion is still available (the others have all sold), but I'm really hoping that Heather will add more to her shop soon!  Please Heather?

Paper Artwork – Chris Piascik

One of my favorite illustrators, Chris Piascik, recently updated his Etsy shop with new Gocco prints and I was reminded about his still-fabulous older prints.  I might need to scoop a couple of these up as holiday presents:

Prints available here, and check out Chris's blog here.
