After months of deliberation, I’ve finally broken free from my procrastinating ways and opened my own Etsy shop! I’m starting small, with only a limited number of needle-felted minis. The few days of setting up shop has been a whirlwind ride and might I even say, strangely satisfying. I’m happy I have accomplished what I’ve set out to do.

Terry Border, the author behind the book Bent Objects (pre-order now) takes a whimsical and funny look at everyday objects. Read more at his blog. The pictures sure made my day.

The Wisdom Tree Bookshelf by Spanish designer Jordi MilĂ  is for people who see books as a source of knowledge and emotions and not simply as decorative objects. Its fluid and organic shape is inspired by growth of a plant. The books that represent the fruit of knowledge are supported by pieces covered in leather.

I’m now a fan of these surrealistic photoworks by Dutch artist Teun Hocks. His oil on toned gelatin silver-print is the result of positioning himself in a painted setup, photographing the scene then painting on top of it.

These lovely handmade pom pom flowers have been popping up everywhere lately. I’ve actually considered doing a bunch of these delicate looking posies for my upcoming nuptials…now if only the wedding wasn’t some 4000km away.

If you are planning on making these flowers for a party, Martha Stewart has easy to follow instructions. You could even make mini versions as napkin holders.
