Pretty Things

Shaun Tan (who I LOVE) has brought out some new exciting things. Firstly a book titled The Bird King and Other Sketches which is a collection of his quirky and beautiful artwork and has studies inside for The Red Tree which made me squeal with excitement!!

And also (and possibly even better) some blank journals with his illustrations on the front!! They are amazingly beautiful and I want them all. Every last one. I can't help wondering if I would draw more if I had something so pretty to draw in. I would like to think I would.

Some other beautiful things I have found recently are these divine pieces of jewellery by Amanda Whitelaw who is a Brisbane designer who hand makes all these super cute accessories. Some of them are a bit more macabre than I would normally choose but they are sensational nonetheless!!

Zombie Clown Brooch

My Favourite Day Brooch

Toadstool Earrings

And my two favourites: A Little Rain Brooch

and Red Balloon Brooch

All of these delightful things are available at Hungry Designs and there is heaps more stuff there. It is fabulous!!
