Mr. Yen Lasercut Sugar Skull Pieces

Lasercut Sugar Skull Pieces | Mr. Yen

I am totally digging Mr. Yen’s new sugar skull lasercut collection, which comes to us just in time for the Halloween and Dia de los Muertos holidays. The spooky, lasercut greeting card, skull, and bunting are some of the most detailed pieces that Jonathan from Mr. Yen has designed, and they’re just the thing for those of you who like decorating for the spooky holidays but want something more sophisticated and understated to hang on your walls and doors.

You can see more photos of these intricate sugar skull pieces in Mr. Yen’s beautiful little Halloween look book.

Black Cat Art Print | Winter Smoke

I spotted these adorable art prints by Winter Smoke on Etsy recently and was instantly smitten. The cutie patootie prints feature illustrations by Mark B, the proprietor of Winter Smoke, who draws from his love of nature, wildlife, and children’s books to create art prints that are perfect for children’s rooms, playrooms, or any room where you want to add a little sweetness and fun.

Here’s a peek at just a few of the cute prints that you’ll find in the Winter Smoke shop, and be sure to head on over and check out the entire menagerie.
