[Print from White Forest Home]

Hi everyone. How was your weekend? I hope it was truly fabulous!!

I'm writing this post as my last post for 2012.  What I here you ask??? I know!! You see in just under six weeks I am going to get married and as such I'm cutting back on everything so I can concentrate all of my energy on my wedding.

I want to say a huge thank you to all of you for your support this year with comments on the blog, support on Pinterest and Facebook and the lovely emails I have received. It makes me feel inspired and even more passionate about surface pattern and design.

I want to wish all the I Heart Prints And Patterns readers a Merry Christmas and A Happy New Year.

I will be back in January 2013 with much more energy and time to devote to the blog and I can't wait.

Fashion Friday -Suno

Today's fashion Friday post features the New York based fashion label Suno. Founded in 2008 by Max Osterweis in collaboration with designer Erin Beatyy this label is now stocked in more than 60 retailers worldwide. Interestingly the first collection form Suno used Kenyan textiles that Max had collected and was produced in Kenya. I recently had a look at the labels Spring 2013 collection and the amazing range of prints used in this collection which are super beautiful.

Cocoa & Hearts - Jen Ramos

One of the blogs I love reading at the moment is Made By Girl. The lady behind this blog is Jen Ramos - currently residing in New York City and painting pretty abstract artworks which she sells under her brand Cocoa And Hearts. Working mainly with acrylic paints on canvas here is a little bit of Cocoa And Hearts pretty to brighten your day.

The Balcony Gardener

Summer is just around the corner here in Australia and that means a lot of things, surf, sand, sunshine and getting out in the garden. It certainly makes gardening a little bit easier and inspiring when you are planting from these beautiful patterned seed packets from The Balcony Gardener.
