Featured Seller of the Day 10/11/2009

Today's featured seller creates pieces that are both beautiful, sustainable, and simple. Her shop is called:

Handcrafted Green Design

Julia combines natural themes with environmentally friendly materials. The products that result are natural looking and elegant in their simplicity. Here is one of my favorites.

Maple Seed Pod Linen Napkins

I love maple seeds (or helicopters as we called them as kids) and here that theme is presented simply by a single block print stamp on a natural linen napkin. Proving the beautiful does not have to be hard or complicated.

Here's an example of some of her embroidered work. A simple cosmetic bag.

Poppy Cosmetic Bag

Notice how the single poppy stands out beautifully on the untreated natural linen bag. I love the contrast between the red flower and green stem, and how instead of doing an exact copy of poppy, she used a circle to represent the petals and give it a clean uncluttered look.

Simple elegance can even be a part of your cooking! Look at this lovely linen apron, accented with green leaf sprigs.

Linen Apron

The green leaves seem to be quietly growing out of the pocket of this piece. Practical, sustainable, beautiful, and elegant! Julia's pieces are the perfect way to add a touch of green to your house! :)

Tomorrow, I will be featuring an artist that creates beautiful mosaics. ::Hint - They make belt buckles and jewelry!::
