Perhaps a DIY project for the weekend?

The interior of the living room makes me want to get creative. Find old stuff lying around and give them a second chance. So if you can get yourself to the beach, try to create a luminous,  DIY beach glass wind chimes to hang out your window or patio. Or a pretty DIY dreamcatcher using recycled material.

Let me know if you make one…have a good weekend!

Such an impressive work created by Parisian illustrator, Ugo Gattoni. The original is a 5 meters long drawing of the streets of London! I would love to see that. The book is published by Nobrow Press,  you can find more images and information about the book there. Or watch the BICYCLE video.

Inspired by the 2012 London Olympic Games, young artist Ugo Gattoni intricately illustrates a cycle race through the streets of London. From elite athletes to cycle couriers, commuters, bankers, delivery boys, mums with kids, youths on stolen mountain bikes to fashionistas and hipsters on fixed gear bikes – pretty soon you will realize this is no ordinary road race!

Paper furniture design by Pia Wustenberg from Germany. Pia designs are very interesting and fun, as she seems to experiment with a range of materials, textures and colours. Her work shows her diversity in product design from paper furniture, to textiles, ceramics, to jewellery and so on…

Here is a mix of her paper furniture products.

SideBoard Material: Birch Plywood and Dowel, Cotton Canvas, Paper

Cute paper mirrors, that look like they are going to jump around…any minute now.

Ocean images I spotted a few months back and they seem to fit well together. ….We’ve been having gorgeous summer day these past few weeks. There has been no surf, it is summer after all. So not sure why I wanted so long to try (standing up paddling). Of course i L O V E it, and I am so addicted to it that 2 hours out in the sea, makes me feel complete.

Fashion legend, Italian journalist Anna Piaggi, was the very unique, original, eccentric fashion icons in my time. Sadly she passed away on Tuesday. She was 81. Her signature look was very flamboyant, theatrical and playful that matched her funky hats and somewhat blue hair.

[ Photo: Selecting images for Vogue Italia in 2004 ] …I love everything about this photo, the Art Nouveau backdrop and Anna Piaggi looking so impeccable while at work.

I remember seeing her year ago at the Sydney fashion week. At the time I was studying fashion and for someone like me who loves colour, mix and match clothing and texttures. I was in awe with her look, the most fascinating style I had ever come across. I was in my early 20s and felt so plain and borring :) She would have been around 69 at the time.

In the fashion world, Anna Piaggi influenced so many people over such a long period. Here are a few sketches, illustrations by other Anna Piaggi fans.

Not sure about you, but it did not take me long to get into the Olympics spirit and want to know what´s happening….Been a very good little swimmer as a kid, swimming is my favourite sport to watch at the Olympics. Now I feel inspired to get back into the pool, just not sure I can complete 25m of butterfly?! Though there is only one way to find out…What is your favourite sport to watch at the Olympics?

Yummy desserts and pretty images, and I am loving the lemon macaroons in gentle tones — such a stylish and simple photo. { source via: Delectable Deliciousness }

It’s not often that I blog about food and recipes. But these two ladies make me want to talk about food. They don’t just post a recipe with a nice picture and voila!. Through their blogs you can find delicious recipes, stylish photos with lot of thought put into them — exqusite photos they are, that make my stomach roar and  my eyes feel dizzy!

The above and below images are from Aline Caron’s blog, My little fabric. She is a French photographer, stylist and designer — That’s probably why I spent ages browsing through her blog, admiring her use of cute illustrations and graphics added to produce rich images — so chic!

But do not worry if you can’t read French — it’s worth your time to check out my little fabric.
