I’ve loved the Carpenter’s Daughter aprons for a while and now I’m loving their camera straps as well — and the photography by amazing Shantanu Starick. I love that their designs are beautiful, well-constructed, utilitarian and fun all at once. The wonderful leather and canvas works are by Camille Moir-Smith — a designer, graphic designer and interiors stylist based in Melbourne. It’s so sweet that her work is inspired by hanging out in her dad’s workshop as a child — even without knowing more than that, it just makes sense. Carpenter’s Daughter has a lovely instagram feed and hosts nice interviews. More HERE.
Happy Friday! I hope you have some nice things planned. If you follow me on instagram, you know that I’ve become a crazy rose-obsessed lady who is always wandering around her garden (Sorry for so many garden pics — it’s my happy place right now!) and I plan to do more of that puttering this weekend with some garden herb-infused limeade in hand. I’m also thinking about bringing out the ice cream maker and making some herb-infused ice cream. Any favorite ice cream recipes are much appreciated! Have a fun weekend! xo Jen

I’ve been really admiring the artwork of Zinaida Serebriakova lately. In particular, I love her portraits of herself, her children, artists, society and royalty. She has an interesting story of being born into privilege in an esteemed Russian (now Ukraine) family of artists, but fell into poverty after the revolution in 1917. Her husband died shortly after and she was left to take care of their four children and other family members. Zinaida left for Paris in 1924 to work on a mural she’d been commissioned to do, but was not allowed back into her country. Only her two youngest children were allowed to be sent to her and she wasn’t able to see her two older children for over twenty years. Her work varies a lot with different techniques, traveling, means to buy supplies and just maturity, I think. Such a strong and interesting lady — she seems to have lived several lives in one. Here are some of my favorite works — everyone has such kind eyes, don’t they? Read more about Zinaida Serebriakova HERE.

The time has come again for me to want everything in Susan Connor’s shop. Since we’ve moved in to our new home in October we’ve had to pour our savings into the things you can’t see and getting the outside spaces under control. We’re left with most rooms in our house needing to wait their turn while we save up to make them look nice. Getting a few of Susan’s stunning hand-stamped textiles is definitely on the wish list for the bedroom and living room when the time comes. I think my favorites right now are the layer cushions, the prana cushions, the prism cushions, the mara throw and the diamond throw. More HERE.
