Inspiration & Eye Candy- some IG favorites!

One of my readers requested that I post links to stuff that I find inspiring, and I just Tweeted about an Instagram feed I really like, so this felt like a good time for a lil blog post!

The Happy MailInstagram

The Happy Mail is a company out of the UK that delivers cute boxes of candy and baked goods to you. They seem to have a “more is more” philosophy to decorating which is way up my alley, plus their IG feed is just so cute and colorful!

Macy DaisyInstagram

I love her style and her shop! I have bought a few pieces of clothing and jewelry from her, and they feel so thoughtful, beautiful, and so authentically her.

Until very recently, I had no idea how cute the Momiji Instagram feed is! I will be working with Momiji soon on a fun giveaway for you guys, and their IG feed is just plain adorable! Momiji dolls have an opening so that you can hide hand-written messages, dreams, and wishes in them!

Naoshi SunaeInstagram

Anyone who has been in my house has seen Naoshi’s work. SHE PAINTS WITH SAND. It is so amazing, and I totally want to be one of the girls in her art. I have the print in the upper left corner, but I haven’t bought a frame for it yet. When I was in LA a few years ago for the Sweet Streets show, I bought an original sand painting. I don’t normally splurge a lot on original artwork, but I could not say no to myself!

I hope you had fun taking a little peek into what I find inspiring on Instagram. Have a fun and/or relaxing weekend! I’ll be prepping for my trunk show at Imagiknit on Monday and MAYBE seeing Naoshi in person at Renegade Craft Fair! (Renegade added a 3rd show this year in SF, and this weekend is the first one!)
