Floral paintings by Rebekka Seale

These floral paintings are by Nashville based artist Rebekka Seale.  It appears they are part of a series, one painting for each month of 2013.  I am excited to see the rest as the year goes by.

I am so happy to have discovered these paintings on Etsy as they led me to Rebekka’s lovely blog.  If you like a beautifully photographed personal blog, do check it out.

Emily Sutton, Angie Lewin Christmas Exhibition

Any Yorkshire based readers out there?  Two of my favourite artists – Emily Sutton and Angie Lewin – are exhibiting watercolours and prints at Godfrey & Watt in Harrogate until 2 December.  If you love Emily’s work as much as me but your purse says ‘no’, she has designed a Christmas range for Betty’s tea rooms including a tea caddy and mug in her lovely nostalgic style.

Grow Your Own calendar by Bold & Noble

Now that it is November I feel I can safely mention that Christmas is on its way.  I am intending to feature interesting products which garden lovers would love to receive as gifts over the next two months, starting with this quirky Grow Your Own calendar by Bold & Noble.  It is a hand pulled screen print which comes in black or green, giving month by month guidance as to when to plant and harvest.

If a calendar is not your thing but you like their style, Bold & Noble also do lovely art prints like the two below (Wild Wood and Meadow). They are giving away a free print with all orders until 17 December, which is a lovely gesture.  Details here.

Maya Selway Vase

Some amazing work by silversmith Maya Selway which beautifully alludes to the shape of a vase.

Maya says about her work:

“I am influenced by the impermanent nature of the objects that surround us and by the cycles of change that these objects go through.  Integral to this is the Japanese philosophy of Wabi-Sabi that acknowledges that; nothing lasts, nothing is finished, and nothing is perfect”.
