Today’s blog post has a circular theme from the visual: a DIY clock, sushi yogi and rainbow salad in a bowl to the metaphorical: building materials at their end of their life getting a new beginning in a rustic mountain cabin.

- When someone mentions embroidery to me, my fingers curl in fear of having to commit to something fiddly. But when I saw this DIY embroidery clock, my fingers almost itched to start making it! This is embroidery at its simplest yet how effective? Find one shallow basket, clock mechanism and thick black embroidery thread and you’re halfway there. Learn the ins and outs at Fall For DIY.
- Jakarta-based freelance art director and digital artist Ferdi Rizkiyanto takes surrealism to the edge with his highly creative works. I love this image, part of his ‘You Are What You Eat’ series. Just brilliant. See loads more at Behance and follow Ferdi on his blog.
- Talk about reusing others unwanted windows. This cabin in the mountains of West Virginia was built by photographer Nick Olsen and designer Lilah Horwitz with a budget of around only US$500. Most of the materials were salvaged from a nearby abandoned barn and the front facade, designed to catch the sun, solely from discarded windows. Read more at HiConsumption.
- Yum, yum and yum! This Raw Vegan Pad Thai Salad is top of my list to make. The colours, the flavours, the tamari-nut dressing all conspire to get the tummy rumbling. Found at vegan food blog Oh She Glows, you could eat this as a meal in its own right or team it with some spicy chicken or prawns to make it a non-vegan pad Thai salad.
