Also new are these Aurinko oak tealight candle holders, which have been decorated with sun symbols and patterns inspired by Scandinavian folk weaving. Each tealight holder has a different pattern with screenprinted details on all four sides, and has been numbered by hand.

Heidi and Susie employ printers that are local to them, and ensure that soy-based inks and recycled papers are used where possible. I really do like the Rock Scissor Paper range - Heidi and Susie have a super cute, colourful and retro style that makes their selection fun and fresh. Some of their designs really take me back to my childhood!

Jane has made a point of stocking items that are difficult to source or expensive to purchase from overseas, as well as featuring a range of handmade items from Australian and New Zealand creative types. I especially love the garden markers and cute selection of cupcake cases. And the paper straws. And the twine...
I'll stop spelling out my personal emerald + ella wishlist, and instead encourage you to pop on over there and check it out for yourself!

I think this print is such a lovely idea, and each egg has its own particular characteristics. And how about that hand-drawn type? You can purchase the print via Amy's online shop, and pop over to Amy's website to view her portfolio of lovely work.

I thought I'd round the week off with the lovely work of graphic designer, crafter and illustrator Lisa Rupp. Lisa is based in Pheonix, Arizona, where she lives with her husband and daughter. Lisa has a particular talent for producing pretty floral surface patterns that are bursting with colour, and her illustrations are also very sweet. You can check out Lisa's portfolio of work over at her website, and make sure to pop over to Lisa's blog where she not only offers photos and tidbits that inspire her, but free printable calendars each month (check out January here). I'm thinking this will be a great way to pretty up my work desk each month! Have a lovely weekend everyone, and see you back here on Monday!

Mel's background in visual arts brings beautiful, detailed illustrations to the SilkPin range, and Justine's background in fashion and textiles sees her manipulating fabrics and adding tactile details to the their products.
The pair have some lovely cushions and tableware items available for sale via their online shop, and I expect that their range will keep on growing.

The products stocked by Canvas combine natural materials with interesting textures, with soft shapes and subtle colours that define a look that is understated yet elegant. They have a continued pursuit for products that are made under fair trade and green principles, and aim for a collection that represents simple, sustainable style.
How much do I want those white porcelain and gold-glazed handmade nesting bowls in the pic above?!
There is also some lovely product photography featured, so pop over to the Canvas site for a browse and a little bit of home interiors escapism.

On a side note, it's been one hell of a week here in Australia, and my thoughts keep drifting to QLD and my home city. Thankfully my family and friends have fared well, but the damage is devastating to see. If you're interested in helping out in some small way, flood donations can be made online here. Have a lovely (and safe) weekend everyone.
