Featured Shop ~ Cindy Lindgren

By Sara of Auntie B's Wax

According to Wikipedia, the "Arts and Crafts movement advocated truth to materials and traditional craftsmanship using simple forms and often medieval, romantic or folk styles of decoration." The Arts and Crafts movement is also the inspiration Cindy Lindgren uses in her art.

Cindy's shop is full of botanicals and things of nature. At this time she offers her illustrations in the forms of prints, cards, and rugs.

The palette Cindy uses has a calming sense to it. The designs are simple, yet hold the true essence of that which she illustrates. Who wouldn't love a friendly, hand-written note on these beautiful note cards?

And any room could be brightened up with a rug decorated with Cindy's design, like this one:

There are also textiles with Cindy's cheery illustrations available at her shop.

The shop of Cindy Lindgren is full of wonderful things to brighten up your life in a style reminiscent of the Arts and Crafts period. Check it out ~ I bet you'll be happier for it!
