please welcome, guest poster: lana from joey and lana make a house a home
First I want to say how delighted I am to do a post for Going Home to Roost. I love this blog so much, it’s silly! I wanted to share with you, exceptional artists who inspire me on a regular basis. From fine art to home goods, I am going to cover some of my favorites from head to toe!
I would like to explore an artist I have loved for so many years. I first discovered his talent when he was focusing on acrylic work of creatures and whimsical landscapes. Then and there I fell in love. Duane Hosien , a native of Trinidad and current New York City resident, has expanded his work into the most deliciously detailed pen-work you have ever seen. Glamour, Germany has just discovered him and commissioned him to do a shirt for a give-away! You can see his work in his etsy store, flickr account, or his blog! I am sure your socks will be knocked right off by his style and detail to attention
Great for both children and adults! Buttercup Bloom has the sweetest little Etsy shop! The selection is small yet perfect. These make perfect gifts and I love to decorate my home with the owls when Fall comes around.
Super functional and amazingly stylish in a woodsy way! I have been craving these desk accessories for sometime. I promised myself as soon as I buy a new desk, I am getting both! Woodtec provides a simple craft with loads of function.
These handcrafted bowls are the work of Isabelle Abramson! They are so delicate and beautiful. Imagine them in the center of your table filled with delicious fruit or pinecones! I could only imagine the amount of time theses took to make!
So this is just a taste of some of my favorite hand made crafters! I hope you enjoy them and are inspired by their work as much as I am.
