Le Petit Prince Moleskines

The eagle-eyed Alice directed me to these delightful new Moleskines which feature the beautiful Petit Prince character. As I said to Alice in my email: "Annnnnd purchased".

Animal Beat Box

I was lucky enough to get along to TropFest on Sunday night and loved this winning film (as well as spotting some famous people - hello Olivia Newton John, how are you today?!)

Thought you might enjoy this as much - the rest of the finalists are all up on YouTube, too.

Dream House

You know when you see some photographs and they line up everything you like in a way you didn't imagine? These shots made me think, "YES! This is what I meant!" I have so many ingredients from these pics (the wooden floors, the blue/grey couch, the boxy bookcase,) and I just love them. I'm going to use these as house inspiration for the next little while. (And those WINDOWS! Amazeballs.)

Cubby Houses

These little houses are such perfect hidey holes for all sorts of treasures - I love the pale green and mauve colours, too. Delicious!

I (Still) Love Lamp...

...especially when it looks like Wall-E! I've really got to stop falling in love with things that are only prototypes.

I Love Lamp

I've been thinking that a floor lamp would look nice near our couch. I love these old looking ones, but lament the amount of floor space they take up. Any ideas for good alternatives?

There's a Bear...

This bear is just adorable. He looks like he'd be pretty happy on my bookshelf - don't you think?

What if 'Up' was made in 1960?

Well this is just plain adorable. I do love the film 'Up' so much, and this is wonderful. Enjoy! (Especially you, Ali!)

The Art Project

Internet, have you seen what you can do, lately? Have a look at this incredible new project for art lovers (and tech geeks, too, I suppose). You can, from the luxury of your desktop, stroll through 17 of the major galleries of the world. And on some paintings, even zoom up close to see unbelieveable detail. Check it out here: be warned, it's a time sink!
