New blog-reads.

I love days when I stumble upon new great blog reads … it’s like finding a new toy! Other than the addition of An Apple A Day, there’s also :

M. Dash – beautiful, poetic words and images.

I love this shot of hydrangeas – it reminds me of the white hydrangeas we used to decorate the tables at the wedding reception.

Ooh, old hotel stickers! Was there ever a Hotel de la Paix in Singapore!? Cooool.

Milk and Honey Cafe – droolworthy baking and food adventures of Sarah “The Baker” Yoon.

An Apple A Day

I first stumbled upon An Apple A Day when I saw the link to this post on bridal bouquets, on A Cup of Jo.

There’s a certain terror that comes with handing over a bouquet to a bride. You want it to be perfect and her to love it etc… but she normally just looks a little shell shocked. She’s thinking, Oh shit. This is really happening. In like 20 minutes. You’re thinking, Oh god. Please say you love the flowers.

And I laughed.

Then I had to read more. So, I’ve added her to my blogroll! Do take a gander.

Blogroll, design love

The Indigo Bunting.

I am loving the work of ridiculously talented Erin Jang of The Indigo Bunting.

These are Jack & Jill letterpress invites she designed for Bella Figura.

She created this diorama for Esquire’s “Augmented Reality” December ’09 issue. So genius!

To quote her :

Each object is hand-cut from cardstock, folded and glued to a larger white board and photographed. The cloud and bird in the first image were dangling from clear string at the shoot. I thought it’d make sense to treat the table of contents in this way because the December magazine was our Augmented-Reality issue. I wanted the diorama to represent a very simplified version of what A/R does, in the sense that the images essentially pop out from the magazine page.

(This next one is going to shame all us uncreative gift-givers.)

Erin’s husband is a huge root-beer lover. So…

She bought him 24 different kinds of good root beer, placed them in a crate, and created a nice overview sheet describing each brew’s flavor/body, based on root-beer fanatics’ reviews that she gathered online. How sweet and ingenious!

(I have a long way to go to such awesome gift-giving, I’m afraid.)
