I love the Old & the New...


...Irrestible...and oh so darling, the old and the new from Sugarboo Designs...Rebecca Puig's art signs, driftwood sculptures, slatted wood pieces, art prints, and more...all laden with a rich sentiment that reflects the artist's love for her family and the beauty in the everyday world around us.

I am so thrilled to welcome her to Earth Angels... (this image was taken when we met at the New York Gift Fair)

And I love this pic of Rebecca with Jo Packham, too...


Here's what Rebecca says in her artist bio...

" Sugarboo is our family business that my husband, Rick and I started in 2005. In case you were wondering- “Sugarboo” came from a couple of nicknames I have for my children, Jake and Sophie. They are the main inspiration for Sugarboo because I always want to create products that remind us of the ones we love. Ever since I was a little thing I loved to paint and create things. I went to University of Georgia and graduated with a studio art degree. My inspirations are my family, nature, animals, old things, children's’ art and folk art. Also, I like interesting juxtapositions of old and new, soft and hard, sentimental mixed with modern. Sugarboo began with the photobox collection (which has it’s very own patent!) and we continue to evolve each year as we play and experiment with new ideas…so stay tuned!"

I love all that she creates...here's a peek at some of my very faves...(ALL are now available at Earth Angels...and a BIG thanks to Rebecca for working with me to bring you these fab creations!)...

Jen,
That is so funny because my sister just got an order of stuff from sugarboo today. Pillows, dog print and dishtowels. Love their stuff. I have another quote for you, from David...."We are more rust than chrome kinda people."
