Weekly Wrap: Objet d'art

I love illustrations, so I was excited to stumble across Folk and Flora's notecards and Izola's Shower curtains. The simple renderings of everyday objects is eye catching. On the other hand, the transformation of every day objects, such as silverware that looks like skeleton keys by Seletti and doll-shaped dustpans, is also fun.
The Finds: Party People Snack Markers, $9.95, from CB2Folk and Flora by Darling Clementine spotted on Parcel PostPEVA and Canvas Shower Curtains by Izola Shower, $29 - $55, spotted on Design*SpongeDollsola Dustpan and Brush Set, $9.95, spotted on Joss & MainKetlery by Seletti spotted on Poppytalk.

As I mentioned previously, it's hard for me to keep clutter from accumulating throughout our apartment, hence my first new year's resolution: "Get Organized. Stay Organized." (Check out my latest workspace crush from Lonny's January-February 2011 issue, page 50; if only we had the room and cubes didn't mind extensive use of wicker.) Slowly but surely, we're digging out from our wedding which was four months ago.

How are you doing on your resolutions? Still working on them?

To motivate myself, I've been surfing a lot of design sites, and I've seen a lot of designer's inspiration boards.

These spaces for gathering items to spark inspiration have me daydreaming about what I could do in my sewing nook. Some things that might be doable: pressboard painted with chalkboard paint, paperclips in neat shapes, and super convenient place to hang my keys.
