Oh my, Oh my. So much loveliness out in cyberland. Here are a few things which made me look twice (and it some cases, squeal in utter delight!).
What an inspirational art wall. The Robin’s blue canvas is so unexpected and works so well with the b/w art pieces. Together they take the wall to a whole different level. Must try something similar myself. (Albert Hadley of course).
This image has been sitting in my inspiration folder for a long time. You all know how I love to mix old furnishings & art with new. If I can only find a big set of old etchings like that when I go back to Sweden… So jealous…
Black silhouettes on eggs. I can still do that before our Easter party! (All it takes is images on black paper and Mod Podge glue).
I finally have a perfect planter for one of my beloved white orchards. I bought this pretty silver trophy from my (everyones!) good friend Tina’s new cyber shop – The Enhanted Home Shop – and it has found its spot on top of my bookshelf ladder. It’s not going anywhere. Very happy with it!
How cool are these plaster busts made by Kathy Dalwood to celebrate the London 2012 Olympics. I would so bring one home if I was attending the festivities. (Check out the Double Decker bus!).
Passport pillows! Need one in Swedish though.
Art glass hanging pots (designed like radishes) for herbs! Come on! How fun! (A great & unique gift for any food lover).
The last four images above are all from my blog friend Di’s blog, Designers’ Block. I met the lovely Di in blog land when I was a newbie in cyber space and after three years of blogging this gal still impresses me royally. If I am looking for unique, funky, witty design items or ideas – her blog always comes first to mind. I don’t visit as often as I should (I have very little time for blog hopping nowadays, period!) – but this girl is one fun lady who never disappoints. (Hi to you Di and Harvey!).
Finally, Asa Daxberg’s popular Chunky Bead + Sterling Silver Necklace now comes in a Light Powder Pink. Love the color! So fresh & pretty for spring. Hop to my store to learn more — Splendid Willow Avenue. (Let me know if you are interested in redeeming a 10% loyal reader discount code).
Happy new week everyone. I have a feeling it will be a good one!
