darlingclementine harvest collection

I know it is going to be a good week here on BloesemLiving when I receive an email in my inbox on Sunday like this from Darling Clementine. My absolute favorite Scandinavian paper design studio.

Of course I am honored Darling Clementine has given Bloesem the scoop for their new collection called: 'Harvest!'

The new series is by far their most extensive so far and consist of cards, posters, gift wrap, a 2013 calendar, tea towels, porcelain cups and a brand new line of their very own fine teas!   

All make perfect gifts for the Holiday Season. I have my eyes set on the calendar and the tea towels, what about you?             [MORE IMAGES]

Not a card not a book but a perfect message to send


Such a great idea instead of sending a card to someone send one of these cute little recipe books from Publisher Snor. They are small in size, but big in meaning.

And just what you expect from Snor, great illustrations this time by  Jose Luis Garcia, Sue Doeksen and jobjorisenmarieke. Graphic design by Dirk Laucke.

Each booklet contains 7 delicious recipes which go with the theme. Peronalize it, stamp it and send the whole book ... a perfect way to send a special message. 

Would you like to say Sorry - 7 maximum-effort recipes to make things right again, Hurrah! 7 fun party recipes to shout about or just Wishing you well - 7 heartwarming recipes to help you get back on your feet.

Yes finally after almost 10 years I am going to visit New York again. No not today or tomorrow but in August. Today I am flying to my own hometown Amsterdam first, spending time with my family and friends. Then two weeks vacation in Spain, back to Amsterdam and on 17th of August I will fly to NY.

I truly hope I can meet many of you dear readers, bloggers or old friends.

But I am not going alone no... I will be joining my friend and paper designer Jurianne Matter. She will be showcasing her gorgeous paper products at the NY gift Fair 2012... below a little sneak peek...

Where are we staying, we don't know yet. But you can HELP ... if you know anyone who lives in NY and wants to swap apartments with me for one week then please let me know. I can offer a great apartment in the canal area of Amsterdam. pls email me if have any tips or ideas.

~ Happy 4th of July ~

I Like You...


Esme Winter (yes, that is a real name - gorgeous!) is the London based designer behind these lovelies above. Though I find her style to be more contemporary than I usually go for - the bright, and then often muted colors she uses agrees with me! You can learn more about her notebooks here, and wrapping paper here. And these are the shops that stock her products.


Another shop that is using a textile background, and bringing a more contemporary twist to paper, but this time in origami form, is Birdtoldme. Britta Manger is the bird, who is behind all the designs and creations at her shop. I've never been crazy about origami, but this way, I really like it.  - Tiffany King
