David Pottinger

What beautiful pieces by Melbourne ceramicist David Pottinger. I adore the fine pattern and soft colours. What a wonderful skill to have. Found via Design Files, thank you Lucy for sharing such a nice interview.

Douglas Coupland - Collecters Home

Douglas Coupland's amazingly decorated home, filled with his collections of interesting design objects, artwork and mid century furniture. Now if only I could apply my skill of collecting in such a way....yep, when I get that 1950's beach house It will certainly look this organised.

Wall of dice - is nice!

Coupland adding white lego to one of the interior pillars.

La Factoria Plastica

Lots of new traffic coming to my blog from La Factoria Plastica, thank you for the lovely mention (have a look see here).....I will most certainly be vising their pages regularly. Have a look at these inspirational finds. Enjoy!

Zac Freeman, American artist who uses recycled plastic to create these realistic portraits.  

Created from this!

Possibly inspired by the great photorealist, Chuck Close. What do you think?

Air plants - Litill

In my quest for the prettiest and easiest indoor plants to care for, I think these 'air plant terrariiums' by Litill are looking pretty close to first place winners. They are just beautiful. I am speechless.
