Middleburg Sculptures

Hello! Just wanted to share another one of my 'hearts' today. These wonderful sculptures are by Middleburg and I think this tree full of birds has inspired me - I have been thinking about it for days, maybe this weekend I'll make some paper mache birds of my own. I have a sculpture technique of my own that I'd like to write a tutorial for - maybe this weekend I'll have some time out from painting and make something different!

Terrarium Ornaments!

I'm sure by now you have noticed the terrarium trend. The amazing little indoor gardens have been blogged about a lot, and you can find many of them complete and for sale on etsy. I have been thinking about making one, there are so many tutorials out there and you really don't need many supplies. I have a lovely round glass bowl picked out.. and the fun part is thinking about what I want to put in it! There are so many cute little ornaments, here are some of my favourites!

G. Sakowski Designs - WOW!

Sometimes when I see something very cute, or something I really, really love.. it hurts! Do you know the feeling? I am so fascinated by these amazing scarves at the moment. I love scarves, I wear one most days, sometimes I forget to take it off before crawling into bed. Just look at all the gorgeous things by G. Sakowski Designs. I think I will have to invest in one of these scarves sometime in the near future, I am in love. The only problem is.. I don't think I could choose just one! Wow!

Flying Star Toys

I rather like these creations by Australian designer, Florence Forrest of Flying Star Toys! Go check out her etsy shop, and be sure to have a look at the links under her profile if you are like me and always check to see if an artist/crafter has a blog I can check out, and possibly get lost for hours in!
