The Fabulous Finds of Funsize Vintage

fun1


Funsize Vintage was one of my favorite booths at The Clover Market!
Stuffed with really cool stuff, artfully displayed.
I met Andrea, the friendly owner, and found out she also has an Etsy shop.
Perused that when I got home and selected some of her items to show you,
along with a few shots I took at the Market.

There's something about that certain piece that catches your eye,
and coaxes you to imagine its life in days gone by.
(Yes. That does rhyme. Quite by accident.)

Good things with a history, carefully and creatively selected by Andrea.
That's Funsize Vintage!

Sweet Watercolors by Jojo La Rue

jojo5


I'm smitten with the art of Jojo La Rue!
Her soft spoken water colors are pure loveliness!
This talented Massachusetts artist says that her work
"encompasses all the beautiful, colorful, cute
and sweet things in the world around her."
I'd say that neatly sums it up.
She has chosen to paint some of my favorite things:
vintage luggage, a globe, a Vespa, pastries, books, teacups...
See for yourself~

98 Cubes of Food Become a Work of Art

Lernert & Sander


The Dutch newspaper de Volkskrant commissioned the artistic team of
Lernert & Sander to come up with something for a food documentary.
The result was this grouping of 98 cubes of food,
cut precisely at 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm x 2.5 cm.
(That's .98", just shy of an inch.)
Fun to identify each one and to appreciate the artistry.
Exact. Perfect. Cever.

This photo is available for purchase as a print or poster
at the Lernert & Sander website.
