Mr. Peacock is daydreaming of taking a walk through a garden of spring flowers—tulips, daffodils, and hyacinth. It’s been chilly in San Francisco here this past week, but springtime is just around the corner, until then...here are a few "springtime" goodies.
(click image above to enlarge)
1) You can pretend you’re walking through a lush floral garden whenever your bare feet touch this 26-color wool hooked rug. More information here.
2) Mr. Peacock adores the work of the American artist, Hernan Bas. This dreamy floral piece—The Blue Line (2005-06), is acrylic, gouache, water-based oil, and collage on paper. You can see this mesmerizing piece, as well as thirty-eight other Hernan Bas works from the Rubell Family Collection at the Brooklyn Museum—now through May 24, 2009. More information here. You can buy a exhibition catalog here.
3) Designer and paper artist, Jeffery Rudell, creates charming and delicate flower reliefs out of cut paper. This 6” x 9” paper relief of purple Asters, comes framed in a white wooden shadow box that measures 11½” x 14½” x 2½”. Order one here.
4) Don’t eat this magic mushroom t-shirt—wear it! Buy one here.
5) New York-based landscape artist, Paula Hayes, creates mini-living eco systems inside beautiful domes of custom blown glass. Each one of these eloquent terrarium gardens is conceptualized and slowly handcrafted by Paula—just waiting for gnomes and fairies to move in. More information here.
6) This large fly necklace by peacock Philip Crangi, from the Giles and Brother’s collection, is made from slightly oxidized silver and would look chic dangling around your neck this spring. A smaller version is available too. Both are exclusively available here.
7) This daffodilly everyday vase, by artist Curlin Reed Sullivan, is just waiting to be filled with springtime flowers. Buy one here. She also has some cute greeting cards available here.
