happy wednesday! i’m back with our next weekly makers post {if you missed our first post, check out bloomist here!} and today we’re featuring the wit & delight shop.

the shop is a product of kate arends’ wit & delight lifestyle brand and offers original artwork and paper goods. w&d’s instagram is one of my personal favorites, the company’s studio is oozing with charm, their blog is full of inspiration, and kate’s house is just dreamy. their mission is simple: to help everyone “live a life well lived through products, experiences, and visual content.”

anyways, i’ve been deep into project update #farmhousedialfano art and keep coming back to wit & delight’s prints. not that their paper goods aren’t adorable {they are} but thought i’d share a roundup of some of their eye-catching artwork.


w & d just started offering framing but you can still order just a print if you have a particular frame style in mind. check out more of their products here, follow on instagram, and be sure to join their mailing list for 10% off your fist purchase.

happy tuesday friends! between instagram, pinterest, clients, people reaching out to me, and general web browsing, i stumble upon or am introduced to so many inspiring makers, artists + specialty shops. painters, textile artists, handmade goods, you name it. so i thought i’d start a weekly series introducing YOU to some of them!

first up is an online shop called bloomist. i found them via someone on instagram, and of course am totally spacing on who it was. but oh my am i hooked! you can read more about their mission here but in a nutshell, they want more nature in more homes. they want you to create a calming environment in your home, steered by natural elements. and they’re inspiring you to do it by partnering with like-minded makers and artisans around the globe. perhaps the best part? you get unique and beautiful items and they donate to causes dedicated to helping the planet, as part of the Pledge 1% global movement. serious win win.
