My dear pal Angie Smith is a wonderful photographer — she came to see the Paperfinger studio last week and shot this scene of me working. There is about 8 months of baby bump hiding in the shadows under my desk. :) I’m still working away for another few weeks…and what a treat to have a treasured friend come visit.

Boucherouite are a form of rag rug that is most often made in Morocco or other parts of Europe. I love the colors, the organic designs and the total comfy approachability.

These ones featured here came from the following online sources: Beklina, Beldi Rugs, Pink Rug Co. and ShabbyChic.com.

This nursery, as featured in Australian Elle, is a feast for the eyes! It’s a bit intense but I still found myself drawn to all the color and shapes and treasures. It is the playful home of kids Captain and Sugar (yes, real names), children of stylist/designer Sheree of CaptainAndTheGypsyKid.
