This installation by Marieke van der Bruggen is really interesting, and really pretty! All the hanging twigs, branches and leaves are made out of colored glucose – in other words, they’re basically hanging lollipops, and visitors to the installation are allowed to pick of parts of it and eat them. The show doesn’t open until next week though, and to boot it’s in Milan. But, if you do happen to be in Milan, you can check it out! It’s the Jewels and Joules show, being presented by the Design Connection Brainport and Design Academy Eindhoven. Sweet – literally!
Via Moco Loco.

I love these illustrations by Kate Wilson! I love that they all feature birdies and sweets, but I love the cute little sayings that go with them even more! Too adorable! Kate also has a fun blog that’s worth checking out, Peonies & Polaroids.

indoor slide

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!

This video from wlevin on YouTube is hilarious! Passover’s over, and wouldn’t it be neat, if you could use all the matzah that you didn’t eat! I especially loved the matzah dog house! Enjoy…

These gorgeous Easter eggs were decorated by Pam of Gingerbread Snowflakes. She hollowed the eggs first (tutorial for that here) and then used Mod-Podge to glue some flowers she had already dried onto the eggs. They sure do look beautiful!
See more of Pam’s Easter decor ideas here.

These shots are from an interesting installation by Madrid-based art group Luzinterruptus. They took many plastic bags and affixed them to lights and sticks in the front yard of the Prado Museum in Madrid, creating a field of soft glowing lights. It’s cool to see plastic bags, which I often see flying around in the street outside my Philly apartment, used to create something that, in my opinion, looks really pretty!

delicious

Yum! This Butterless Almond Cake that Angry Chicken made the other day looks like the perfect breakfast. The recipe she used looks really easy too – almond paste, sugar, flour, eggs, and a pinch of salt – simple, and yummy! I can’t wait to try it!

chalkboard eggs

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!
