Tasty Design

I saw this image over the weekend on The picture is by Berlin based artist Sarah Illenberger - this one uses paper creations to show the ingredients for the ultimate chilli con carne, but the rest of her work is very mixed media. The child in me loves the balloon with a wig on top! According to Buck she is an artist to keep your peepers on, and I completely agree.

Everything is going nuts in the garden! I'm going to have to watch out or I'll be overgrown before I know its even happened! This is a picture of the rhododendron, that is currently adding a bit of colour to our currently rather dull borders.

Cyber Candy

I've been meaning to upload some photos for a bit, but the computer went haywire! Anyway, we are now back on track (in a makeshift kind of way) so expect more photo posts. How super cute is the packaging for these Peko-chan Milky treats? I bought them (and lots of other sweet treats) from Cyber Candy in London. It's a fab shop with so much to see, but you can also pick up amazing goodies from their online store. Just don't think about all the E numbers!

Look And Look Again

Inspired by the fact that everyone seems to either be in New York, going to New York or just got back from New York I thought I'd post about these amazing photos I found through the wondrous Notcot the other day. Peter Funch took photos of the same places in Manhattan over the course of 10 days and blended them seamlessly, bringing together similar people in an exhibition called Babel Tales. I love the attention to detail - like the white pigeons among the people all dressed in black. There is another photo with everyone dressed in white with black pigeons. Nice stuff. Now I just need to figure out when and how I'm going to get back to New York myself!

Famous When Dead?

I thought I'd share with you another one of my favourite artists. The above image is called 'The day I failed to notice' and is by UK Based artist Famous When Dead. I came across his work a few years back on Ebay, and was instantly struck by it. If I didn't already own a couple of his images I would be snapping this up!

Bright Lights

We were bought one of these amazing lampshades (in white) a while ago as a wedding present (and still haven't managed to put it up!), but I'm loving the new colours that they have started to produce them in. The light fittings are made from wool felt, and are available direct from the people who design and produce them - Mixko. Check out their web site for other fun ideas - I like the Atari joystick candle holder - very fun!
