Something else I have enjoyed lately is the work of Jean Shin [via Caravan of Curiosities]. She prolifically creates beautiful works from cast off objects, giving them new life and showing off their beauty in a different way!
How many times have I thrown away a broken umbrella in frustration? Jean's work shows me I should have been collecting them instead!
I love the art of clothing hanging as decor objects! Jean deconstructed this clothing and left only the seams!
She used some of her own clothing to produce these Collograph Prints
Visit her sight and take and take a enlightening tour of her work!

The 'Yesterday, Today, Tomorrow' is blooming, the Swamp Cyprus is getting it's leaves back again, the Strelitzias are stunning and I could pick some of those deep orange Palm Stems with their black seeds again! Inside my house will be a little bit like Spring today as my lounge and bedroom have the 80's carpets like this taken out and brand new ones put in instead! Yay!

It also made me think pattern - and how my appreciation for pattern has grown in the last year. I love the simplicity yet cleverness of this mostly geometric design.
There's a little bit of pink to be found out there at the moment -
IAFR - Interior Adventures for Real were also thinking pink when they designed this cabinet engraved with grafitti!

Limoges boxes are still manufactured today. Read about this interesting porcelain art here. I have learnt a lot, but there is still more I would love to know about the scarf itself.

Closing time will be 15h00 Sunday 21st ,South African time, after which I will put the names in a hat and choose a winner!
I will send the winner a Cushion Cover.
This is what I can tell you about the prize for now...
It is not part of my range yet.
You probably don't have one like it!
It is not vintage, but it does have a Freshly 'Found' aspect to it!
It is 100% cotton and made in South Africa.

Anairam of Fra[a]ing made this lovely version along with some other pretty paper projects the other day: If your Spanish is good [or you use Google Translate], you can read about how Immanualidades made this version!

I have just finished a series of 4 hand stitched cushion covers [with more to come!] I was looking forward to showing them to you today, but my pics really did not do them justice. So if the light is good today, I will snap them again and show them to you tomorrow.
