elsita.



I met Elsa Mora (Elsita) through her lovely photos at Flickr and was instantly obsessed. Elsa has the most fabulous eye for all things beautiful, and I just love visiting her recent photos on a daily basis.



Best part? She's an INSANE artist. INSANE. And in my head, INSANE is sort of like calling someone 'bad' that's actually good, or 'phat', as in not 'fat', but good. You know, just to clarify.



I looooooove each and every one of her prints in her shop, and I seriously have been trying to figure out for the past hour which is my fave, and I just can't. I love them ALL.
[edit: ok, I've decided! This one is just to DIE FOR!]



Elsa has a fantastic blog right here if you've got a free afternoon to peruse the loveliness. She'll be at the Oscars this weekend, so give her a quick hello and good luck to her husband Bill!



Visit her shop here, and just look at how adorable and creative her banner is. It's the BEST!
Gracious; I love this gal.

because beauty lies in the details of design. in the pencil shavings, in the blueberry waffles. the vintage dress, framed portrait, old postcard.

design is inevitable. celebrated. design for mankind.
