{Loved & Noted} Live Simply, Canvas Furniture, DIY Batik Dye, & Cardboard Alphabet

Daydream-In-Color-Loved-And-Noted-Live-Simply-Canvas-Furniture-DIY-Batik-Wall-Hanging-Cardboard-Alphabet

This week I’m really trying to think about only the basics I need with this Live Simply print ($20).

Canvas hanging furniture would be perfect for small spaces.

I’ve been dye-ing (pun totally intended!) to try my hand at batik since I read a book about it from the library. This version by Kelli Murray is so simple and pretty.

This cardboard alphabet by Weekday Carnival is so simple yet effective.

The {Loved & Noted} series touches on inspiration from creatives and fellow bloggers all over the world.

{Wish I Was Wed} Melissa White

{Melissa White} Website

From the moment I saw Melissa White’s work I stopped everything I was doing to find out more. If you haven’t noticed, I have a thing for gold and I love the gilded look of her handpainted design in wallpaper. She trained with an artist specializing in Elizabethan painting and one of their projects was replicating painted cloths in the Shakespeare’s Birthplace Museum. How amazing is that? I hope to have something this amazing in my home someday! (Via The City Sage)

{Wish I Was Wednesday} Mister Finch

Mister Finch’s soft sculptures made me realize that even little stuffed insects can be pretty and darn adorable! His use of vintage fabrics give each one such charm and individuality. I kind of want them all!

{Color Inspiration} Float Away Scarves

Over sized scarves have a permanent place in my daydream brain. Ever since my BFF brought me back a pretty blue one from Brazil during her travels a few years ago, I’ve used it as a shawl, a beach towel, a cover up, a picnic blanket, and even rolled up as an impromptu sack. So my mind wanders with ideas of fun whenever I see beautiful over sized scarves. These float away ones by Faliero Sarti at Maryam Nassir Zadeh just have me daydreaming in every which way. (Via Design For Mankind)

As the weather warms people came from all over town to the docks nears my place to kayak, sail, and lounge in their yachts. You may remember my paper sailboat freebies from last year and how I placed them by the waterfront. I was inspired again by paper sailboats for upcoming long weekend. It kind of makes me want to build a giant one to climb into and float on under all the bridges.

Do you like boats? Have you ever sailed?

In an elementary school summer school class is where I learned to cross stitch. It was the perfect craft to keep our little kid hands busy. I even remember meeting my childhood penpal in that class. We kept in touch all the way through high school and we shared many kid secrets, fears, and exciting moments through hand written letters every week. We originally bonded over this old timey craft and I’m delighted to still see it every where. Revived into a cool new trend even!

Do you like to cross stitch? Do you like the motif on objects other than fabric?
