Have you heard of Novica?

Mom and I stumbled across Novica while looking for some wall carvings for a client office we were working on.  Novica is associated with National Geographic and they bring amazing handmade wares to us from all over the world.  Their mission is to give artisans a platform to sell their crafts at fair prices, worldwide.  To our advantage, it's a wonderful way to collect global items from your computer!

After looking through their site for hours, I finally decided on a yummy alpaca throw that's reversible.  I'm so fickle, I don't stick with any one thing for long, so this is perfect!  It came in the most adorable packaging with a handwritten note from the artisan.

And I really love cuddling with it!

I really wanted to buy a piece of elephant art, there were so many great choices. Have you heard of it before?  They give an elephant a paintbrush and some creative license and off they go.  I love the story they tell for each elephant.  This was my personal fave done by Bores the elephant.
Here are my favorite picks from their site. You should check them out - you'll find some fantastic global scores for your home and yourself! I'm definitely going back to source for projects (ahemmmm, and maybe buy this indigo bedspread!).

  1. Love your choices here. Can you have too many throws. I think not, and this one is lovely.
    Happy Saturday.

  2. Yes, I know Novica. I have never purchased from them, but am really feeling the Tribal vibe.

  3. I have heard of Novica and recently hosted a giveaway. Somehow I missed the elephant art. I think it is kind of funny to give an elephant a paint brush but hey why not!

  4. I hosted a Novica giveaway and always get lost in their site when I visit. So many great things to purchase and it makes you feel good to support the artists!

  5. Wow, I wish I could paint like an elephant!
