These pieces by Tara Donovan are both minuscule and immense! As always, I love to see small objects put together to create something huge, but even cooler that the small objects are so normal – buttons, pencils, styrofoam cups… That stuff never ceases to amaze me. See many more of her pieces here.
I downloaded these awesome chick bookmarks from JinJurup, and I love them so much! I glued the printer paper to card-stock before I cut mine out, just to make them more sturdy. They are so cute! Get yours here, for free of course!

Isn’t this like every kid’s fantasy? I think if I had a slide next to the stairs in my house I would only slide down to the lower level. This picture is part of a slideshow on Cookie Magazine’s website, featuring a green home built by a British architect. When making the plans for his house, he let his children have a say in what they would like as well, which is how he ended up with a slide by the stairs! I love it!
These ostrich eggs made into mini-blackboards from The Red Thread are the perfect little Easter treat! They come with chalk so you can write or draw your own sweet messages on them! Plus, ostrich eggs are much stronger than chicken eggs, so they’ll last! Awesome! I want one!

I’m not sure if any of you are fans of canoeing, but I think you’ll agree that this clear canoe is awesome! One of the best things about canoeing is looking at everything around you and in the water. How awesome would it be to look right down under your feet as you’re going along?! There’s also a clear kayak, which is pretty sweet. Both can be found right here.
Can you believe this juice box packaging by Naoto Fukasawa? I love it! I’m not sure they’d be easy to mass produce, but I would love to hold one just to see what it feels like! Especially the strawberry one… Via.
While I personally am not ready to drop 20$ for one of these little apple cozies, I do think they are a really cute and cool idea! No more bruises, I suppose. I love the leaf embellishment also!

This amazing house was designed by Senosiain Arquitectos for a couple in Mexico City after they decided they wanted a house that looked like a snail shell! They now live there with their children. I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live in a house like that! I especially love the rainbow glass front window. For more detailed information about the house, and some more incredible pictures, see this page on DVICE.
