Donna Wilson's odd objects

Donna Wilson's unique and quirky knitted creatures have been a love since first site. Her knitted whimsy captured my heart with odd proportions, funny color combinations & lots of personality. I love how the machine knitted intarsia patterns transform her doodly drawings into 3D forms. So playful and cozy!

Again, I find myself absolutely mesmerized by the new projects she has been working on. It is impossible to choose a favorite, I seriously want everything! Be sure to check out the glassware, melamine trays, cushions, pillows, blankets, scarves, tea towels, the new creatures... Oh, so hard to choose, so hard to choose... (Which would you choose?)

To add to to the excitement, she has a new book out, so you can knit your own odd-bod bunch of creatures too!

Studio Violet

We have enjoyed watching Studio Violet introduce themselves to the world: So warm and inviting - like visiting with an old friend and catching up over a cup of tea. Camilla Engman and Elisabeth Dunker are Studio Violet and together they have created a nostalgic and whimsical combination of illustrations and patterns that feels instantly familiar juxtaposed with something unexpected. Such a graceful combintion. Check out their latest: reused porcelain dishes!

Fiat 600 Multipla love

Okay, so I have no clue what they are saying but I seriously have fallen for this automobile. Absolutely fascinated with its backward ways and awkward proportions. So silly and yet, oh so elegant. Sigh, I seriously want one of these.

Look what I picked up @ Super7 today! (hee hee)

annotation book shelf

Best book shelf, ever! In deed. Oh, how I think a few of these would be perfect for my wall. For now though, I will have to just daydream about the idea. Still a concept piece by Lau Design - I hope he gets around to producing these soon.

" ...using a small motor you can create a kinetic bug that draws or create more than one to have a race with your friends." Bloesem Kids and Bookhou share another great DIY craft project for you to do with the kids. This one's gonna be lots of fun!

cotton monsters love

With their vibrant colors, bulging eyes and large teeth, Cotton Monsters are both imposing and lovable. Jennifer Strunge is the spirit behind these cuddly gap-toothed monsters. Big or small, each monster is handmade from recycled materials and evolves intuitively without patterns - so no two are ever exactly alike. The Cotton Monster shop is usually sold out, but she posts often so, be sure to check back from time to time - you just might get lucky and be able to snag one for your very own!
