My friend Shanna in Los Angeles recently sent me a link to Sugarboo Designs based in Roswell, Georgia. I immediately loved the shop and thought it would work well for Sweet Peach. Artist Rebecca Puig utilizes reclaimed wood, metal, burlap and a bevy of paints to create her pieces that inspire and generate lots of positive energy.
I really like these two pieces of art...full of vibrancy and sweetness. When I asked Rebecca what she hopes her work conveys, she responded, "Love, happiness, gratitude for your family and home." Flower Bird and For My Darling Elephant can be found here.
I must admit, I love her slatted signs the most. When I asked Rebecca about these, she said "For some reason I love old crates. The slatted signs were inspired by these crates that are very functional but seldomly appreciated." It seems any time an artist uses reclaimed wood and adds their creative touch, I'm a devout fan...
Come to think of it, a lot of Rebecca's work would work well for a Valentine's Day gift...many of her pieces speak of love and companionship. You'll find the written word in many of her pieces. She explains, "I am a sucker for words and have been collecting them since I was little. I am not sure where that comes from but it makes me happy to add them to my work."
I like the rustic simplicity of her pillow collection. Rebecca has over three dozen smile inducing designs and she promises to have even more in the near future. They're made from either stone wash linen, canvas or burlap.
Just when you think you've seen all her work, you find out she makes napkins too. I just love these graphically pleasing prints of different animals saying different things... Peruse her site to see even more creative endeavors by Rebecca, including notecards, metal signs, picture frames and driftwood pieces.
