I adore these watercolor paintings by artist Leontine May Greenberg. The artist was born in Tucson, grew up in the desert and the great cities of Europe, and currently living in Jackson Heights New York. Her work is inspired by "other people’s flickr streams, city rooftops, the coming environmental apocalypse, and the children’s book section of the Strand Bookstore," and has been shown at galleries around the country. More of her work can be viewed here.

I love everything by Sydney based designer Have You Met Miss Jones, originally specializing in bone china but now expanding to include clay pottery, capiz shell, metal and woodwork. I am swooning over both their products and beautiful styling. Make sure to stop by their store for a huge range of ceramic owls and more sweet ware for your home.

I recently learnt about carve-by-colors, which is an incredible creative pumpkin carving technique similar to paint-by-number kits and uses color coded technique. The template shows how much and where to cut, shave, or scrape your pumpkin to create a jack-'o-lantern that looks fun, cool and richly textured.
Martha Stewart's site has step-by-step instructions on how it's done, tips and tricks and template to download so anyone can do this nice trick. It'll make a great addition to your Halloween decorations or can be used as a centerpiece to spice up the traditional display.
