What a magnificent Sunday! Although working I was lucky enough to be able to take my laptop outside and enjoy the glorious sunshine, the birds, the butterflies and the odd bumble bee. I am so happy spring is here.
Thanks to one of my new favorite blogs (yes, I know I should have been working) Creature Comforts, I discovered these delicate porcelain feathers. These are so going on my Christmas list. You can check them and lots of other lovely stuff at Velocity.

isn’t this the most gorgeous chandelier? I found this thing of beauty at “This is Glamorous“, this is such a pretty website, with the most elegant snippets.

I simply love this little vase cover and I am quite proud to say I have one gracing my chest of drawers in my bedroom. Tord Boontje designs exquisitely intricate pieces. Have a look at Artecnica for this and other gorgeous peices

These little 3d flower cards are also a beautiful examples of work at Artecnica, designed by Tahmineh Javanbakht and Clara von Zweigbergk.

I am determined to make my own cuckoo clock and I have started collecting pic’s for inspiration. The simplicity of this version would suite our home. I found this example at Snow Home. Check out the website, they have some really great goodies.

Snow Home also sell these magnificent trays. I have blogged about Ibride before and couldn’t resist to punt them again. They have an equally magical website, check it out.

Quirky tableware is fantastic, Versailles Fluo is a decadent collection of old fashioned tableware with a zingy bright “bit”.

Have a look at this beautiful ceramic “Grass” vase. Grass is crafted by design duo Claydies, in thier words: “Grass has a very naïve ceramic expression that is both uplifting and amusing”.

Finally, cakes that has zero calories! Norma Lynn makes these delicious little gems entirely by hand and lovingly gives all the proceeds to various worthy causes. What an inspiration!

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.

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

Christine Misiak is breathing new life into tired old silver tea sets. Check out the gorgeous shiny black teapot and its quite little lopsided sugar bowl, who has one little foot missing, quite fabulous.

Lately I seem to have developed a soft spot for rabbits. Secretly I would love to have a fluffy bunny hopping about my house, but I fear my beloved Stripey Cat may enjoy making a snack out of him, so instead I have resorted to collecting (less tasty) ceramic versions. This gentle wabbit was sculpted by Janine De Waal, an architect from Cape Town (my home town). I have a very similar bunny sitting on my chest of drawers in my room.

The colours used in this unusual chair are really relaxing and clean. Have a look at Leif Design, they have some really original and imaginative concepts.

Jo Meesters is a really unusual Dutch designer, I really do love his “Reshaping Wood” table.
