Friday finds…

This stunning piece of art is the work of Ann Wood, an artist whose work I can’t seem to tear myself away from. She makes the most realistic and exquisite owls I’ve ever seen. However today we talk about her sailboats, which are made of paper mache and fabric scraps. She specializes in recycling vintage garments and fabrics. Make sure you stop by and check out all she has to offer, its a feast for your soul!

I love these Indian alphabet blocks from Gnaana, via sound horn please. I love anything that introduces a kid to his/her heritage and culture. This is a sure way to start. They come in various Indian languages and are made out f teak wood(how elegant is that). I think its a great way to introduce a second language to your child early on.

These tiny Swedish made moccasins are the perfect solution from Anna Wetterlin’s Moccis to keep little feet warm indoors. They are durable and have a flexible leather sole, and most importantly they are machine washable. How convenient is that! They also come in the most fun patterns and prints available.

With the amount of travel we do, I think these memory jars are the perfect solution for us. We have so many memoirs from all of our trips that I may need to buy these jars in bulk. The fun thing about this is that you don’t really need to go on long vacations to store the memories, it could very well be your day at the beach or a ski trip together. Whatever you choose, it is indeed a great craft to do together and spend some quality time with your little ones.

Patrick Hruby’s imaginary castle giant floor puzzle is on the top of my list. I can sit staring this for hours together. Anyone can tell how difficult it is to use so many colors in one product and make it as cohesive as this is. I’m personally a big fan of Charley Harper’s work, and as one can see here he has definitely inspired Patrick Hruby as well.

Polka is one of my favorite brands, it comes to us from Australia, Jo and Marika join forces to give us this wonderful line inspired by vintage, retro, modern futuristic, bohemian folk prints and patterns. This is definitely a sure “pick me up” brand for me. You can buy them through this delightful store called Little Pinwheel, which carries all the Australian brands you want you little tot to be seen in under one roof.

Have a great weekend, I’m traveling again for a bit so will catch you the earliest I can next week. Until then…

@Divya-Can you blame them from popping up, the are just so perfect, seem to fit every age group and occasion perfectly! I have a few personal ones myself, even have one which is 0ver 80 years old made by my great grandmother and has been passed down generations! So clearly the concept of these jars have been around way longer than any of us!

@Anupama – Will make sure to link up the Friday finds, thanks for the tip!
