Pearson Maron + Jen Pepper + Pia Jane Bijkerk

Hello lovelies! How was your weekend?

We had a lovely weekend - my parents were visiting which is always nice, the boys got to enjoy spending time with them, and dragging them around to different school functions and sports games - oh and there was good food as well -always a bonus!!

Are you ready for this new week? - the second to last in this Alphabet*Six... lets get crackin'....

Pearson Maron

On our daily drives to school we pass a quarry with tall billowing chimney stacks. The boys quite often comment on whether the 'Cloud Factory' is working or not and whether there will be rain because of it. I have always loved the image of factory's puffing clouds (rather than pollution) out of their chimneys, and when I spotted this Cloud Factory (first image below) from Pearson Maron, I knew I had to share it with you..

Quincy Pearson and Adam Maron are the creative duo behind super cool store Pearson Maron. They are the creators of "monster magnets, unique knobs made from recycled metal, and lots of other interesting kitschy stuff..."

Jen Pepper

Oooh this collection of trivets and coasters from Jen Pepper are divine! Using the fail-proof combination of engraving and laser cutting, Jen makes these pieces seem effortless - and who can resist a trivet of kissing deer?? Seems to me to be the perfect way to add a little bit of fancy to your table : )

This first 'P' for Blog Wonderland is a given really... how could it be anyone else other than Pia Jane Bijkerk??

This is one of those blogs that you probably already know about, but it's one that I really can't pass by...This is the kind of blog you get lost in.. where do I begin??

Pia's blog is broken up into different categories... 'Guest Quarters' for guest writers, 'Kitchen' for guest recipes, 'My Heart Wanders' for updates on her new book, 'Sound Studio' for images with music (that she has created herself), 'Library' for Pia's recent reads.. and then there's 'Paris', 'Amsterdam' and 'Sydney', the three cities she resides in - each with different posts, photographs and I said, you really could get lost.

This blog pretty much covers all my favourite things - design, craft, photography, writing, food, recipes and more. The perfect place to loose yourself : )
