Thanks to my daily dose of Oh Joy! I found this fabulous “exhibition space” Papernstitch. It showcases artists and designers selling hand made goodies, there is some really amazing talent, well worth a visit. I find “dipping” into websites like this so inspiring. Now, if only I didn’t have to work today, I would love to potter about and attempt to make something pretty.
Kyoko Okubo created these delicate and very intricate washi (traditional Japanese paper) sculptures. Really breathtaking.
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
Just a quick post, seems I am going to be burning the midnight oil again. Here is a another example of calorie free pastries. These are made by KupKup. How cute!
Hey, its time to hunt for Easter Eggs again! This little nest is an example of the Easter gifts I have made for my family.

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”.
Take a look at Zee’s delightful photos. Her style is so fresh and inspiring, I love the collections of bits and bobs, they really satisify the magpie in me!
Sometimes one stumbles across beauty of such a fine and delicate nature that it humbles you. Aoyama Hina creates the most intricate and unbelievable paper cutouts. At first I could not believe my eyes, surely it was impossible for anyone to be that dexterous with a pair of scissors? If, like me, you couldn’t believe it, check her out on YouTube.
