Filling the Well

Thanks for joining me for the first week of my "Filling the Well" posts, where I'll share with you what has been inspiring me this week, from books, artists, designers, etsy sellers, recepies and flicker finds.

Artist of the week
Angie Lewin, a Brittish artist who works in various mediums of print. I love the way she selects her colours and illustrates nature. And I'm drawn to all things flowery and birdie at the moment.

Designer of the week: Olivia Cheugn
"Her work is about creating unique objects that have a sense of intrigue, which are inspired by popular culture, the environment around her, and finding interesting ways of using materials. " excert from her website
Here Olivia has worked on making the product packaging for a lightbulb become part of the product and have a function. What a great idea!

Etsy shop of the week
Elephannie, who make beautiful decals to decorate your interior walls. I love them all, what one would you choose and where would you put it?

Recipe of the week
Carrot and Coriander soup, one of my favourites and just perfect for these autumny evenings, with a bit of crusty bread!

Who or what is inspiring you this week, leave a comment and let me know.

Great post, Laura. Can't wait to try that soup.

I am inspired by the lovely colors of fall. I have always loved this time of year - sweaters, school, beautiful warm colors. It always felt like a time of new beginnings for me.
