n is for......

An eclectic bunch for you today - enjoy!

Norma V. Toraya

I have to be honest, I only discovered 'Crankbunny' yesterday...and Oh My! Norma V. Toraya (the designer behind Crankbunny) is one clever gal!! My soft spot for her amazing puppets meant that I just had to squeeze her into this 'N' post..

"Some things in life are slick, polished and blatantly obvious. But for Norma V. Toraya, who is also known as Crankbunny, these are exactly the things she shies away from. Instead, she's more inclined to explore timeless concepts like subtly, curiosity, texture and awkwardness. Her hand-drawn and computer-animated creations are often described as dark, sometimes noir and always magical."

I love them!! have a look!

I have been a fan of notNeutral since I discovered it a couple of years ago. I love the fact that the collection doesn't shy away from bright poppy colours and that it continues to offer a slick, modern and down to earth option for every day home wares, accessories and furniture.

Have a look:

Ooh, I selected some of Nut and Bee's images when I had some Moo cards and stickers made up recently for my niece - soooo cute! Didn't know that they were designed by someone from New Zealand (and I do like knowing that sort of random stuff about things I buy) so thank you for that! Will definitely go and check out her blog... Still LOVING the current alphabet! :o)
