Thankfully drooling over beautiful photography of delicious cupcakes is not going to add on any extra inches. Christina Peters is the most amazing photographer with crisp, clean style… me likes!

Okay, so along with my small rabbit habit, I have a little problem when it comes to all things bird related. Much to my delight I stumbled across Cher Ami, and a link to Studio Frederik. Cher Ami is a fabulous site with an equally impressive collection of “birdy” articles. Check out these statuesque bird houses.

Thanks to Irene at Bloesem for the sweet little link to my blog.
It is very flattering as I must admit to visiting Bloesem on a regular basis for a design fix.

I dream of one day having my own Cuckoo Clock, I love the idea of it chiming and ticking loudly, sort of reminds me of my childhood. In the interim I wouldn’t mind one of these delightful little Cuckoo Clock brooches. Made by Vienna Horses, you have to check out all the other gorgeous pieces, like a wolf with a bird in his tummy and a dreamy bird cloud brooch. Really cute.

I am currently on a week’s break from work and as luck would have it, the heavens have opened and the wind is howling. The idea of running any errands on my scooter is not that appealing, So instead I have an Americano and my laptop and I can browse to my hearts content.
Check out these two fabulous Etsy stores, “Trace My Face” and “In my Backyard“.
Traci creates these delicate prints (top), I love her amazing use of colour and attention to detail, check her work out here, and “In My Backyard” (bottom) crafts these cute fabric printed bird patches (found via Decor8). I likes!

In My Backyard

I have a huge soft spot for Christmas trees and ornaments. I can not wait to get out our box of Christmas goodies and decorate the tree.
Needless to say, our collection keeps growing, and the poor tree will soon be in need a brace.
If you feel like me, then you simply have to sign up for the Second Annual Holiday Ornament Swap. Not only is it a great opportunity to send a little festive cheer to other Christmas’aholics across the globe but its a banker that your desire for the perfect Tree Trinket will be satisfied.

Christmas Swap

The swap is organised by Nicole of Freshly Blended and Kathleen of Cake & Pie. If you want to find out more check this out

A very clever use of space and form (and fantasy). Who’d have thought the bits that are missing could still be so importing in telling a story. Have a look at  for more fantastic ideas

While trying to find some much needed creative inspiration, I stumbled across this adorable yellow giraffe made by Debi van Zyl on her really inspiring site. His crazy red button eyes and skinny legs really have put a smile on my face.
