Base is a Japanese ecommerce platform that allows users to set up a shop under their own domain name. It is there that we found this shop, Honey Bunny, that focuses mainly on smart phone covers. Loved the owner- created graphics so we thought we’d share.

Coveting these hand painted tribal serving boards and accessories created by Australia-based artisan Millie Fairhall. She is a self-confessed ‘mixed-plate of cultural confusion’ and her heritage reflects heavily in all that she creates. She writes this on her blog about her creative journey:
“Whilst the majority of people receive a pay packet each week,I do not. I’ve chosen the path of the unknown,of the consistently inconsistent because I love what I do and am fortunate enough that there are people out there who love my creations enough to pay me their hard earned money for something that is made with heart and soul. My work is a culmination of my life.my travels.my experiences.my adventures.the blood that pulses through my veins.the culture that I have been born from.the life that only I have lived,that’s what inspires & keeps the fire burning.”
“I spend hours slogging away.late nights.lack of sleep.blistered hands.sweat.sacrifices & tears to produce everything you see on my page,but I get so much satisfaction and pride to be able to share my work with everybody.”
You can follow Millie on her blog site and Facebook. Her products can be purchased in her Big Cartel shop.
