Clip Masterpiece?

Posted in design, This & That, Uncategorized with tags , , , , , , , , , on April 12, 2009 by thebluepearlgirl

Most clip art I see around looks child-like and is often colorful and simple.  I recently found this amazing site published by Florida’s Educational Technology Clearinghouse.  You can find it here.  The clip art is more like tiny masterpieces.  I love diagramatic, realistic art which these clips certainly are.  I hope you all enjoy!

Antiques & Things…

I stumbled upon this site while scouring my fav design blogs.  The shop carries very interesting antique and vintage pieces such as hotel silver and chandeliers.  They even have this beautiful French CROWN!

I would buy everything in her shop if I could.  She also has a blog that is linked on the shop’s site.  This is definitely a site to keep your eye on!

 

I’ve also been swooning over this print at William Sonoma Home.  I love this type of art!  There are 2 other drawings in the series as well.
