 ...and because I'm in Mexico where it's 95 degrees, these popsicle prints by Sean Mort make me all kinds of happy right about now...

a summer gallery wall...


For those of who have been following along with our 10 Day Picnic collaboration with One Kings Lane and Virginia Johnson (fingers crossed that some of you won those beautiful illustrations!), I'm happy to tell you that the prints got so much great feedback, they're now available for sale. Check out one of my favorites—the cherry print—in my own living room...



We are constantly rotating the art in our home because I love too many prints and too many artists. And while I love finding affordable $20 art, you often end up spending a lot more than that after having them framed. So the fact that these are beautiful, come already framed, and end up being a reasonable price when all is said and done is a bonus. You can see all the prints right here...

play with your food...





I love seeing the way that other people can look at things so differently than I normally would. Last week, I met Julie of Julie's Kitchen who makes these amazing food collages from items she's picked up at the local market. They are simple, beautiful, and have just that perfect touch of whimsy...

ice cream makes me smile...




...whether it's conversational ice cream cones with faces, whimsical drawings of people with "Vanilla Ice" hair on the side of ice cream cups, or beautifully styled photos of ice cream, it all makes me really happy for some reason... — Joy

food on paper...



I'm slowly building my wall of food-related art in our dining room and love coming across more fun options. I love these simple, yet quirky drawings by Elizabeth Graeber called Food on Paper. There's something about the way these simple objects are drawn that give them a bit of a personality, too... — Joy

I'm almost finished with the wall of food-only art prints for our dining room and thinking that one of these beautiful and whimsical illustrations by Anek might make for the perfect finishing touch! Loving the mix of type and illustration... — Joy
