Sidebored

Today I rearranged the dining room a bit and put my new DIY canvas (using FIALENA fabric from IKEA) on the sideboard with a bunch of different bits and pieces - including finally filling the bell jar.

Inside the bell jar, I sat a little white bunny on top of a few small books. I think it's pretty cute really!

I've loved *D.R.I.N.H.E.L.K.*'s (Drine & Helk's) style since I saw this shot of their house/interior on Flickr. Amongst other things, they like design, toys, graf and the 80s. I really hope I get to see more shots of inside their place soon!

* We love design *. Originally uploaded by *D.R.I.N.H.E.L.K.* from Flickr.

Je ne suis pas une pieuvre

Back when I was a youngster, I liked to draw graffiti characters. I guess I still can draw (this is my first real attempt in about 13 years...). I fuckin' love colouring.

The best of the rest...

The Lego iBlock speakers for iPod. If I had an iPod, I'd definitely want one of these bad boys. Available from Fred Flare for US$25. Discovered at Retro To Go.

Nothing says AND quite like a big fat cast iron ampersand. Made by House Industries, they are available to buy for US$200. Found at Oh Joy!

Maggie dressed in Zac Posen. It doesn't get much hotter (despite what the critics say). Via My Little Apartment.

The amazing artwork of Moira Hahn. Discovered at Monster Munch.

This Nike Air Force 1 sculpture by Sicksystem. Brought to you via Hypebeast.

Married to the Mob has dropped there new season. Found via Mayoress. Could the Mob girl be any cuter? Man... I think I just turned.

Giant stuff is my latest obsession. A while back there was a really cool article in Living Etc about giant stuff. This installation by Robert Therrien (borrowed from Design for Mankind) reminds me that I need to get me something large because size really does matter.

The new Sininen Geopardi (2008) fabric by Teresa Moorehouse via Marimekko.

The Finnish Olympic team wearing Marimekko in the opening ceremony. Found via the Marimekko blog, Always Mod.

These cute stools and ottomans made by Judy Ross were spotted by Anh-Minh at Barney's.

And I'm spent.

Special things

Here are a few other special things I have on my mantle piece right now. A John Galliano Diptyque candle, a bright yellow vase and my special dachshund artwork made by Teesh especially for my birthday. I can't stop admiring them :)

Sunday surprises...

Cutest. Thing. Ever. It's been a very long time since the last time I had this happen! What a fab way to end a rad weekend. You rock x

Shiny new things

Today I went to the Young Blood & Boom markets (part of the Sydney Design Festival). I'm glad I did, because not only did I have a nice time in awesome company - I came home with a couple of sweet items.

First up, I came across this awesome Melee lampshade (above) by Brad Stebbing. The lamp came flat packed and I had to carefully put the Freds and Fritzs together (get one and you'll see what I mean!). It's currently living in the dining room and it might stay there for now...

Then there were a bunch of street art types doing some live stenciling etc. They were giving away their art for nothing more than a donation. The cute little blue and pink number above now lives pride-of-place on the mantle piece (thank you sweets - I love it x). If anyone knows the name of this artist let me know... he has work up all over the place, including at the Roxbury in Glebe.

This is Love Forever


I rediscovered This is Love Forever via Bohemian Hellhole today. I've had Kayte Terry as a Flickr feed friend for a while... and now I'm loving her blog too. It must really be love forever because we both posted about the Selby!

I love you Weng Weng
