Sandra Juto is a Swedish artist/designer who, with her husband, recently moved to Berlin. She also happens to be a talented photographer who manages to capture the intimacy of their lives without seeming self-absorbed. The little trees pictured above are some of her paper creations. They have a weird, fairy-tale quality, and I just can’t stop looking at them.
Found these over-sized flash cards today at John Derian’s shop in NYC. I get a little weak in the knees when I see single words (cows and sheep notwithstanding) on oak tag. With radius corners no less. Molly, eat your heart out!
I wish I could remember where I first came across Andrew Bush’s envelope project. It might have been at An Ambitious Project Collapsing –one of my favorite favorite blogs! And, in fact, I do believe that is the case. No matter, I had to look through ALL of the photographs. I like that we, as a culture, can be identified and even defined by such a quotidian object. One can easily pick out the envelopes that originated here in the US versus those from other parts.
Thought I would throw up a few more images from my rapidly expanding collection of things found and documented…together.
The creators of Things Organized Neatly are my new heroes. Their site speaks to me on every level. We’ll be back here often.
