home sweet home

15 Oct

This post has been a long time coming, excuse me for my tardiness; I promised to share a few snapshots of my house back in September, along with some of your lovely illustrations of “home sweet home” so here they are now… “Good luck with your move and thanks for the opportunity to share some of my work with you.” -Emily Balsley “It’s a very small paper cut that I made and photographed in my living room – it’s my interpretation of home sweet home” -Claire of mylitlepicturebook“I made this painting of the most iconic building of my husband’s hometown in Italy and it hangs in our kitchen reminding us of all the friends and family we have there, as well as many good times. It’s a way to keep a bit of our sweet faraway home with us wherever we’re living.” –Kimi Kobashi“This design was somehow timed just right!  I was working on it anyway, it marks the start of me doing more illustrations of buildings. It’s nice to know that this one has even more purpose!  I was thinking of you with your recent move when I was painting it.” –Charlotte VallanceOur key rack made by my dear friend Cajsa Fredin. The keychains are also adorned with art and gifts from Natalie Ruby and Caren Gibb.Some of the best things on display in the kitchen: Pauline Newhouse pottery sitting above some delicious cookbooks.A cozy couch spot with a custom owl quilt by my mother and a Canadiana cushion by Identity lit by my grandfather’s lamp.Sitting amongst the treeline outside my bedroom window is my collaborative piece with Anna Jane Searle, a lino cut from Justice Bicycle and a print from Brooke Weeber.A cooking corner filled with kitschy ceramics, screaming oven mitt from Nick Oostyen and an incredible mixed media piece by Carney Oudendag.

Thanks for your patience my friends and thank you to those who submitted their beautiful depictions of this dear notion.

    Such a warm collection on a sweet theme! Glad you’ve settled in happily in your new home, Jessica. I love your collaboration piece with Anna Jane and the paper cut house is also lovely. Actually, each piece has its own warmth and happiness. Nice post! Thanks for including me. :)
