Monday Moodboard – So a bear walks into a forest…

A bear walks into a forest...

I know, with this moodboard the title doesn’t make much sense! But if you click on the image it will take you to the treasury where the title does make sense! It was inspired by the illustration of the bear with an owl on his head. I wanted a more calm treasury this time, but of course I can’t resist little illustrated details.

Calm is the exact embodiement of the photograph by Aleka. In her shop she has lots of nature photography to choose from, but this one is my favourite. It’s very simple and delicate, but beautiful nonetheless. Less is more as they say, and it certainly holds true for this photograph.

Have you ever read the book or seen the animated film “Watership Down” by Douglas Adams? I absolutely adore the book and I’ve read it many times as well as the sequel with short stories. This mug immediately reminds me of this beautiful tale. I cannot believe this is directly painted on the mug! I’ve experimented with painting/drawing on ceramics and it’s such a pain in the ass. So I cannot believe the amount of detail Mara is able to achieve. Please check out the rest of her store for more fantastic artwork.

Tatiana is a shadow box making star! She has so many different kinds of dioramas in her shop that it’s truly a treat to go through them all. I love how most of them have these funny captions or short story banners. Together they make a wonderful collection of curiosities.

Kate and Tori make and sell all kinds of things, from jewelry to decor and from vintage to toys. My favourite shop section however is their collection of plushies. They are just too adorable. And how can you but not adore the graphical elements they’ve made with hand stitching! I’m in love…
