We talk a lot about whether we should let the pigeon drive the bus in our family so I was thrilled to see Mo Willems artwork featured in a recent alumni news story from my college (I don't often read these closely so I feel lucky to have stumbled upon this). Yale's Beinecke Rare Book & Manuscript Library requested Willems to create a whimsical rendering of Pigeon in the style of John J. Audubon's "Birds of America". Copies of the limited-edition poster are for sale, with net profits supporting New Haven Reads, a community resource center and literacy program in New Haven, Connecticut.
I stumbled upon Theresa Losa Art on Instagram and am obsessed with her surfers, pool scenes, sunsets, sailboats, and vibrant blue waters. These paintings don't seem like they'd fit in our home in Denver, but they'd be perfect for a beach location anywhere (or maybe I need to be more open-minded about art).

A sweet and incredibly entrepreneurial friend, Alicia Sands Tiberio, recently launched her photography site, Alicia Sands Tiberio Photographie. Alicia is a talented residential interior designer, mother, founder of James Grace Pizzelles, and a fantastic photographer. I've included a few of her photographs that I like best and there are many more on her website. The photo at the top of this post ("Reflection") reminds me so much of a picture of the Earth - it is intriguing that it is actually the reflection of clouds on water.

These custom crests by Rachel Rogers Design have me swooning! How fun would it be to design a crest for your family, your wedding, or a new little one? Rachel Rogers designs book covers, invitations, crests, custom cards, and monograms and her style is incredible. I immediately envisioned adding one of these to Blythe's gallery wall, although custom designs start at $500 so that isn't likely to happen. A girl can dream!

A few months ago, I received an unexpected gift in the mail: this adorable Rosie the Lunchbox from Lulie Wallace. Lulie paints incredible flowers and floral designs in Charleston, South Carolina. She sells her original paintings, as well as prints, robes and pajamas (I'm coveting the Sulai shorts set), baby blankets, and textiles. I might have trouble convincing Rob to fill our house with her floral prints, but I'm smitten (and Blythe has co-opted the lunchbox to store her goodies in).

I love how you can stumble upon the most random and wonderful people on the internet. Case in point: artist Kirsten Sims. I think I found her through Pinterest (in the never-ending quest to find art that both Rob and I like), but I've since scoured her own website and the archives of a recent show she had in Cape Town, South Africa (where she is based). The paintings included below were all part of the "You are Here" solo exhibit she had at Salon91 in Cape Town (which is completely sold out). Now if only a few of these paintings were hanging in our home...
