Stumbled right into this one while I was looking for something else, so must show you the lovely packaging of Miller Harris, perfumer Lyn Harris’ fragrance company. Aren’t they so lovely and warm? I love how you can tell they are exclusive without them being ice cold and designery, if you know what I mean…

I’m addicted to the new season of Mad Men, while I was in New York they had a casting for a walk in and I was dead close to joining the 15 minutes of fame sheep before I had a reality check, I’m a designer, not an actor. Although I do pull of that style quite well with loads of vintage dresses. Anyway, these days I am loving everything retro American so when I stumbled across two great pin up illustrators I was sold. Yeah yeah, it’s degradig to women blah blah, but it’s HOT! Just check out these pieces by Gil Elvgren and Harry Ekman.

I stumbled across these lovely soap packages from Fringe Alchemy over at Lovely Package and I just had to share them. The thing is that I would never have the heart to unwrap these, the packaging is just to pretty to ruin.

A passion for paper might sound vey strange to a lot of people, but not to me! That is why I think you should check out Russian paperartist Yulia Brodskaya who is currently based in London. Shes does all sorts of tactile illustrations and typework in paper, enjoy!

Check out German creative director Katrin Oeding. She’s a woman of few words about herself on her website, straight to the point with her work, I LIKE! And I think her work and the number of awards under her belt says a lot. An impressive collection! Well deserved, just check out her fantastic work for Anthony’s Garage Winery.

With my new students arriving monday last week we had an intro do with lots of fun last friday. When it was all over I bet they had a bit of a boozer on friday night. As the proud “mother” I do wish they’d drink slightly more sophisticated. Why not have a visual feast as well as an alcoholic one? Just look at these wonderful bottles.
