I Want to Be Her!

Or at least I would like to be the one who came up with this idea… (visit the site to see larger/clearer images – this is as big I can get them) I want to be her! is a blog written by Andrea Linett, co-founder/former creative director of Lucky Magazine and current creative director of…

Sandra Suy Illustrations

I love these illustrations by Barcelona artist Sandra Suy. The combination of both bold and light, ethereal lines creates really interesting movement and emotion. She claims to “love drawing people, especially beautiful women with beautiful dresses.” As a fashion illustrator, she gets to do both. But these images convey so much more than fine feathers…

Julia Denos and Audrey Hepburn

Have you heard about the children’s book, Just Being Audrey? I looked up the illustrator, Julia Denos and I LOVE her work. Just those few images really capture the character and spirit of the iconic film star. Apparently the book follows her life from Nazi-occupied Europe through her years as an Ambassador for UNICEF. I…

Be Mine

I found this adorable download on Inside a Black Apple years ago, and I always meant to feature it on Valentines day (first on The Big Piece of Cake and then here, on Wishing True) – but somehow it never happened. The little blondie reminds me of my Eleanor. Maybe I’ll give her one today……

Needful Things: Gadabout Note Cards

Months ago, I put the Gadabout link in my “check it out” list and I’m only just, well, checking it out. In one of those “finally – someone who gets me” moments, I found myself pouring over every lovely illustration on the site (didn’t let myself click on the blog tab for fear of losing…

Needful Things: A Life of Style by Rebecca Moses

Illustrated with fanciful watercolors, A Life of Style provides inspiration and practical advice for developing your own personal style through eschewing rules and appreciating style constants. Here are some images I was able…

Virginia Johnson Illustration

Katie of The Neo-Traditionalist recently posted about illustrator, Virginia Johnson. Many recognize her work from the Kate Spade books. These are some images I pulled from her portfolio: The first is my favorite. I want to live in it.

Open the Shutters via Fifi Flowers

One thing I love about Fifi Flowers is that the site is so much more than just a showcase for the work. The lovely, whimsical illustrations are still the focal point, but I find just as many wonderful design photos that make their way into my file. I was particularly taken with the series of…

Dream Bathroom Rendering

As you may already know – I’m a big fan of Michelle Moorland’s room renderings over at A Schmatic Life. But this one may be my favorite: I’ve never much liked baths…always thought it felt like sitting in soup…but for this bathroom, I might change my mind.
