Things I’ve learnt this week

I’ve discovered two things this week and thought I’d share them with you …

  1. Turns out there’s some pretty good things about being over 40, such as: there are no grown ups, there are no soul mates and it’s okay to not like jazz. This New York Times article is great reading for all those over 40 and all those yet to get there!
  2. I eat sushi the wrong way. I dunk the whole thing in soy sauce. I eat in multiple mouthfuls. If you’d like to know how eat foreign foods the right way and not make a fool of yourself when you’re visiting others’ countries, check out this video from Buzzfeed [via Lost at E Minor].

Happy weekending!

Beautiful Creations: DIY to Design

Images, from top left to right:

  • The cutely named ‘Kangaroo Clock’ by designer David Raffouli for Fabrica. Every Aussie should have one. [First seen at Fubiz]
  • Loving this DIY rope light sign which looks easy to do but does require an ounce of handyman knowledge! Find out how at A Beautiful Mess.
  • Oh yummy, yummy days! How amazing does this look and it’s all delectably edible? Replicate Aimee’s Four-Layered Pavlova with Pineapple Orange Curd and Dried Pineapple Flowers at Twigg Studios.
  • Australian Joanna Rhodes makes stunning animal sculptures like this ‘Rust Rabbit’. How good would he look in your garden? See more here.
  • Berliner Elisa Strozyk transforms wood in ways you wouldn’t expect. Her ‘Wooden Textiles‘ is a material that is half-wood, half-textile. She says,’ It looks and smells familiar but feels strange, as it is able to move and form in unexpected ways.’ Discover more here.

It’s Market Time

DIY Link Love blog post - Who'd Have Thought

Images, from top left to right:

  • Very cute DIY light bulb terrariums at Clad and Cloth. Love them!
  • Make-your-own on-trend metallic sacks from Almost Perfect (okay, so they’re not washable but who cares?)
  • Have unwanted books and require secret storage? Sewing Barefoot shows you how to make your own hidy-hole using the spines of old books.
  • Pretty watercolour paper flowers that will last as long as they don’t get wet. Find out how to make them at Curly Made.
  • This might not be the easiest DIY job around but get inspired by what French-based Zim & Zou studio did for a Hermes store window in Barcelona. Each piece has been handmade from paper and the fox from strips of leather. The detail is amazing. See more pictures at Design Boom.
