OaKoAk steet art

I'm partial to a bit of street art- I have previously blogged about Banksy. I like there to be art/ colour especially around cities. Everybody seems to be so caught up in their own thoughts & worries, and its nice to see something that would put a smile on your face. 
I just came across these photos by OaKoAk. 
How sweet are these?

Anthropologie inspired outfit

I must be dreaming about summer at the moment- not  that the weather has been dreary, but, for me summer always kicks winters ass. There are, of course a few things that winter is perfect for- wicked hot chocolates, roaring open fires, snuggling up in soft blankets and getting dressed up in coats, boots and scarves ( it's all about accessories, darlings).
I've just had a meander over to Anthropologie- this is from their latest catalog- perfect for those balmy summer days.

Of course, until those relaxing summer days & nights, you may need to cover up a little, and here's a way to stay warm and wear the dress year- round:

1. Dress from Anthropologie
2. Blazer from Country Road
3. Shoes from Simply Soles
4. Cocktail ring from Max and Chloe
5. Earrings from Pink Mascara
6. Shawl from Black

House Inspiration- Amy Butler

You probably know of Amy Butler- her fabulous, 
bright, charming textiles have found their way around the world.
 Over at Apartment Therapy there is a tour of Amy Butler's House.  It's well worth a peek- here's a couple of photos from the tour:

It's a beautiful, bright(as you would expect), calming space. 
I think it would be so easy get inspiration whilst pottering around it.

Beautiful floors

Thank you Twig & Thistle for showcasing the beautiful flooring by Bolefloor
instead of straight lines, the Bolefloor  system curves sinuously and resembles the way that trees grow, naturally. Following the natural curves of the trees allows more floors per forest.

aah such a shame that I have nowhere to install this system- maybe in my dreamhouse?

Papercuts by Joe- Etsy seller

Hi everyone, I know it's been a super long time since I blooged- the same old story- you know how it goes. You can pick from the following reason (or excuse, depending on your viewpoint) - pick whichever one catches your fancy:

I got too busy
Life got in the way
There were too many other distractions
I wasn't feeling inspired
Couldn't be bothered.

.....anyway, let's not dwell on the past- we have to move forwards in life- and that's what I'm doing, with this Etsy seller- Papercuts by Joe. 

made by hand with lots of patience, some paper & a scalpel, they are just lovely. 
You know of my love of bicycles (or rather, love / hate relationship- if you've been paying attention)
Isn't that sweet?

For soomething a bit larger & intricate, how about this?

It certainly doesn't look like paper- i thought it was a screen print at first. I can only imagine how long it would take to do & the precision necessary.
And finally the sparrow. 
There are. of course many more designs- have a look at his work, I think it's quite beautiful.
