exciting developments have taken place, friends! you can now find me behind the counter (on tuesdays and thursdays) at one of my favorite local stores little sparrow! you might remember i gave a little shop love to little sparrow a while back. since then the store has moved to a bigger, brighter location – but everything else is just as perfect as it was before! here’s a few of my favorite things you will find in little sparrow…
super groovy vintage linen bags!! ah love those colors.
…fabulous felts in a million colors and sizes. there are some incredible hand painted rainbow felts that make me swoon.
…special friends waldorf doll made to order by shelley. check out that tiny handmade cape!
… charming clothes for the kiddos.
…amazing notebooks, letter sets, stickers, lyra pencils, crayons and modeling waxes
♥ Starting with the book ‘Naive: Modernism and Folklore in Contemporary Graphic Design’. This only just came out but i can’t wait to have a flick through. Check it out at Amazon! It looks packed with amazing work from some super talented people and there is also a great collection of previews over at Print & Pattern. The blurb states:
“Inspired by twentieth century American legends such as Saul Bass…Charley Harper and … Alexander Girard, these burgeoning designers are creating new and striking imagery using palettes of earthy and pastel shades, reduced strokes, patterns and shapes with a strong folkloristic element.”
♥ Next, Stroboscopica albums! Oh my gosh, i do love some strange music. While rummaging through the racks at a great little music shop in Adelaide, i turned up a copy of Phase 6 Super Stereo: Introducing the Alternative Italian B-Movie Soundtrack and as soon as i listened to it once i was hooked. i needed more of these crazy, euro, organ freak-outs! After googling the label Phase 6 was released on i found there was indeed more organ freak-out to be heard. They’re discontinued, but they’re out there, and for $99+ they won’t be coming to my house anytime soon unfortunately.
♥ Yves Saint Laurent Biarritz heart sandals are one of those things that, I’m not sure I’d really wear a pair, but oh how their existence makes my heart smile. In the parallel universe in which i own and wear them, I’m tanned, lithe and spend my days sunning myself on a yacht.. cruising around mykonos.. also, i look great in a kaftan. Like i said, parallel universe. Another reason i like them is they’re like the summer equivalent of the Vivienne Westwood Lady Dragon Melissas. So you can wear your heart on your toes year-’round!
♥ Lastly, Alain Gree bento boxes. They’re really just too cute for words, aren’t they? I want to keep all kinds of tiny cakes and treasures in them and color co-ordinate my shoes with them.
So thats all for now, but never fear, i find new stuff to covet all the time!
