Reflecting on The Narcissus Desk

The Narcissus Desk
Sometimes you just come across something and think- I WISH I HAD THOUGHT OF THAT - this is one of those things. A genius idea from Sebastian Errazuriz via Mocoloco

Crochetdermy by Shauna Richardson

Crochetdermy by Shauna Richardson bulldog
I never mastered the art of corchet even though I was a knitwear designer for many years. Had I seen these I may have tried. Shauna Richardson creates taxidermy that doesn't make you cringe in fact it makes you smile. Love how she calls it Crochetdermy.

Weird But Strangely Fascinating

I know these clay sculptures are weird to the extreme but they are beautifully executed. Eating my food from one of those bowls could be quite disturbing but what the hell! By Ronit Baranga

Polar Light

What a fabulous idea. A chandelier to hang outside which looks gorgeous but even more so when it is icy or it snows. Genius idea by Arturo Erbsman

Simplicty at it's Very Best

sans souci atelier france
 Bringing together industrial design and graphic design has been a huge success for this French company Sans Souci Atelier. Clever how simple everything is but obvious that a lot of thought has gone into each piece. I am a fan!

I Think I May Actually Love This Idea

rugs as a stair carpet
However much I love this idea it's not going to happen in my cottage as the staircase is a cast iron spiral. Never mind!

First Stop On That New Road - Lille, France

Lille antiqes market
So last Friday left that road to my new life and visited a huge antiques market in Lille, France

Accompanied by my lovely friend Jo. How we wished we could have used that carriage to get us around the 62 kilometers of stalls.

Anything from headless babies to

vintage mirrors, this one looked as though Harvey had modelled for it. I wouldn't have put that past him.

I fell in love with this Victorian toy horse.

What this giant Durex was about I failed to comprehend.

I could cook up a storm on this and

there was lots of street artists to stop and stare at.
Finally here is the booty I returned with. We travelled by train so no huge items this time.
I thoroughly enjoyed being back searching for vintage pieces in France, it seems like so long since I did this. Yes I missed Harvey but nothing is going to bring him back and he would have expected me to continue enjoying what I do. I shall!
