A new year is a great time to freshen up the house. New art is a great way to change things up without breaking the bank. Today’s collection has a little something for everyone. No rhyme or reason, just great art and great prices.

What do you get the cat-lover who has everything on your list? This is it. GoodAfternoonan creates custom cat portraits from a photo of your feline friend. Magnet, brooch or print, the cat lady (or cat guy) in your life is sure to be smitten.
Katie currently works from New York out of her Brooklyn Studio. Her blog is full of her custom creations as well as space, places and things that inspire her and her work. Our shared love of vintage and Arrested Development leads me to believe that if we lived closer we’d be Netflix Night buddies.
This post is sponsored by the wonderful people behind Good Afternoonan. All opinions and words are my own and I only include products and artists I truly love. If you would like your own in-post feature, please visit my sponsor page for details.
Oh goodness! This week I find myself head of heels for everything Naomi Wilkinson has ever done. Her style, her color, her subject matter… It’s all made me smile. Check out her website for more of her portfolio or follow Naomi on Twitter.

I’m so smitten with Erik Riley Illustration right now. His pieces feel old and new at the same time. Clean and rustic. And I’m always a sucker for dogs and horses. I’ll be keeping my eye on this one.

If you need a literary escape to hep you push through these last winter months, do yourself a favor and pick up a copy of Wildwood by Colin Meloy with illustrations by Carson Ellis. Wildwood is a novel (yes, an illustrated novel, not a picture book) that tells the story of a girl named Prue who must find strength when her little brother is carried off by a flock of crows and whisked to a nearby wilderness. It’s everything a modern fairy tale should be.
You can also now get the sequel, Under Wildwood if you can’t get enough.
Decorating for the holidays with tinsel and fake snow isn’t for everyone. One of my favorite decorating details is as simple as switching out the art in your favorite frame. I leave my holiday prints in the frame behind the year-round art. When it comes time to make the house festive, I take the frame down and swap the prints around. Instant cheer!
Here are some winter prints (and some original editions) that are singing to me this year.

This week’s Covet is NS Pottery. Natalie crafts beautiful stoneware jewelry and homegoods with function and impeccable taste. She is even up for the Martha Stewart American Made Award this year! You can vote for her here. Congrats Natalie!
I have been stock-piling photographs for years. I loved the idea of opening a photo or card shop on etsy, but the start-up costs in printing, packaging, etc. made it a far off dream. And then a light bulb went off this week. Let Society 6 do my printing, packaging and shipping for me! Plus, they have the capability of also printing iphone cases, stationary, canvas prints and framed prints.
I stayed up until the wee hours last night reformatting photos and uploading them to my new Society 6 Photo Shop. It’s a great week to open my shop too since they now have Iphone 5 Cases (as well as Iphone 4, 4S & 3) and free worldwide shipping on all items!
Here are some of my favorite item combinations in the introductory collection…
I still have a boatload of photos to go through, so stay tuned for new additions. I plan to keep my prices as affordable as possible. Be sure to check out my Society 6 Iphone Case review for more information on the cases. Having purchased a number of prints, including the print above our bed I can vouch that they are beautifully printed.
I’m just getting started, so please stop by my shop and ‘promote’, pin, stumble, facebook and share! Also, be sure to let me know what you like! Feedback will drive this collection.
This week’s Covet is all about Ruby Taylor Illustration. I ran across her spread from Flamingo Magazine on Pinterest and had to know more. You can also see her work on the Just Us Collective or on her blog.

I started this post with a theme in mind, but before I knew it it evolved into a “things I like” post. Oh well. I tried. Anyways, here is a collection of art I am digging this month. I don’t have room in my home for all of it, but I do on this blog.
