{thursday’s sweet treasuries}

… today i am thinking about illustration.

i keep finding these sweet… lovely… tender… delicate… with a little bit of humour… all that sugar & spice we need to feel happy.

one day… when my tiny apartment turns into a decent one (no, no huge apartments for me) i would like a wall for these. maybe on my office (oh yes, i will definitely get one office for myself).

hope this will get you a little bit of happiness too!

happy thursday!

{random} stories :: bloggity sneak-peeks

as i took the day for delight myself over blogs & blogs & blogs… i was fortunate to discover plenty of delicious treats for a day at home.

so, i will leave you with these treats i found through my very favourite blogs…


have you been here? of course you did, this is one major place where we can treat our eyes with the very exquisite “beautiful, decayed & handmade” (i just love these words all together).

“browse our october lookbook, featuring vendors from “indie love” (this month’s theme at poppytalk handmade). all images link up to each participant’s virtual table!”

these are so fresh, are they not?

lady joy and lady meg wrote a book, that i am wishing for so much… (but first must have a little bit more sales!). the book is called {creative, inc., the ultimate guide to running a sucessful freelance business} and it seems to be a honoured guide for those that feel a little bit lost in this word of business. 

you can hop on {chronicle books} and get what seems to be a true eye-opener… & according to them…

As the hipster classic Craft, Inc. did for crafters, this book will teach all types of creatives—illustrators, photographers, graphic designers, animators, and more—how to build a successful business doing what they love. Freelancing pros Meg Mateo Ilasco and Joy Deangdeelert Cho explain everything from creating a standout portfolio to navigating the legal issues of starting a business. Accessible, spunky, and packed with practical advice, Creative, Inc. is an essential for anyone ready to strike out on their own.”

the ladies are participating in parties hosted to present the book and these are the pictures from {oh joy} & their los angeles party.

i would have loved to be in this delightful party! if you happen to live in new york (asides from a great envy) i would not miss the next one, this thursday!

and this was it, lovely friends… a day full with posts!
tomorrow we will host {treasure hunt wednesdays} with a perfume of photography from etsy world!

today is a national holiday, so i am staying at home, indulging myself with reading all my favourite blogs (and my list is quite a list!) with all the time i have as a right. 

yesterday i spent quite a few hours updating my etsy store {a place for twiggs}… so here are the first news.

and i am proud to present other goodies from the {sweet place}, now with a different size… 5×5. 

fresh+goodies {random} stories :: creativity sneak peeks

if you realize, prices are the same between 5×7 & 5×5… and that happens for a reason. the lab asks me for the same price in these sizes, so there is no difference between these two availables sizes. 

shipping expenses suffered a raise, also for an excellent reason. this way i can provide you with express mail and the goodies are delivered in a fast pace to your beloved home! 

& remember that along with the goodies you offer yourself or you loved ones, there is always a fresh vintage breeze from lisbon… and the sweet perfume of lavender or rosemary!

sneak-peek {aplace for twiggs} for more!

{nancy in wolf and willow studio}

…welcome to lady nancy alice wood. {wolf and willow} is a very magical & sweet place. sweet because it is full with shades of pink… magical because lady nancy takes us throught several inspirational images and diy that are beyond exquisite!

but how did this all started?

“i started {wolf and willow} because, as an exhaustingly creative person, there’s not much i don’t love learning, making, designing or doing! and i really needed someplace to put it all… i also wanted to connect with other creative types and let them know how much i love their work. the fact that so many wonderful people around the world enjoy popping by, well, I’m just thrilled! how special is that??! it’s wonderful to see so much positive energy and love in my inbox each day, it’s really quite addictive.”

nancy combines stories from her daily life & findings, sharing the work of talented artists. she writes several editions concerning flavoured subjects that make you dream… about different places & different ages.
