Poppytalk is a Canadian (Vancouver-based) design blog that I just love. Founders Jan and Earl (husband and wife) are dedicated to promoting emerging design talent. So much so that they opened up an online market place called Poppytalk Handmade in 2007. They have monthly themes which provide an opportunity for artists, designers + cottage industries to be seen amongst the “sea of independent shops” out there. They pick the cream of the crop to showcase on their site. Everything is just lovely.
This month’s theme is Mother’s Day + Eco. These are just a few of my favorites:
1. reversible buckets by Cozy Memories / 2. folding stool by Gallant + Jones / 3. drawing food journal by Claudia Pearson / 4. grain sack pillows by Jill Bent / 5. photography by Janis Nicolay / 6. paintings by Lisa Golightly
