Ahh, more gorgeous woodgrain, this time from Chilewich. Jon first reported on them when they were introduced during the last ICFF show. It's so great to see them now available to the public! The rug is amazing and the bag, fun and original! (Thanks Julia M.!)

Jaime Zollars

Jaime Zollars is an amazing children's book illustrator. She has a great sense of narrative and inspires imagination! Her prints would make a great gift for a friend and even better gift of art to a child. I love the owl print called "Homeless" and her other woodsy print called "Homecoming."

Fellow woodnut Amy sent us this link to these fun building blocks for kids- Love the name- Jakks "Knotwud" Construction blocks- hehe, they're actually made of foam and have a woodgrain pattern screened to them. I could see using some of just one color, maybe for a fun display for your bookcase or something- I wonder if you couldn't utilize them somehow for somethign else too... hm... anyways- $14.99 for the set- (thanks for the tip Amy!!)
