This man and his bubbles are making me happy! He is Samsam Bubbleman, and he first fell in love with bubbles in 1989. He has created his own special and especially good bubble-making mixture, (a secret!) which has helped him to set two different records – one record for fitting 50 people into one of his bubbles a couple of years ago, and one record for fitting 66 bubbles within a bubble! Currently he is waiting for his newest record to be confirmed, the biggest bubble ever, which was 20ft by 5ft by 5ft at its biggest. Bubbles are so odd and wonderful – and how nice to be able to make a living making them if you love them!

I’m feeling very inspired by the look of these awesome wooden houses in Siberia. The patterns and cut-outs are so detailed, and the houses feel really earthy. Click here to be whisked off to Vlad Studio, where you can see tons more great photos of the houses, and even download them in wallpaper size!
