It’s super gray in Philly today, but I came across this video on Now Voyager and it’s making me glad! All those birdies are so cute and funny flying and tittering! The song is from the Amelie soundtrack – so wonderful!
You may remember when we profiled the lovely Rubyellen of the blog Cakies – well she is the creator of this awesome giant dollhouse pillow! She made it for her daughter’s second birthday. The front has huge pockets for dolls to hang out in, and as you can see, the back has many fun details! I love the little chandelier and all the little curtains! Plus, it’s huge! When I first saw the top pictures I figured it was a normal pillow size, but when I saw her daughter tucked into it I knew it was awesomely big! I think this is such a cool idea – I want my own dollhouse pillow now!
Be sure to check out Rubyellen’s blog– she is very crafty and comes up with cute projects like this all the time!
Believe it or not, I don’t think I’ve ever seen any pinhole art before! (Or if I have, I had no idea!) Now that I’ve seen the delicate pinhole art of Heather Smith Jones, I want to try it myself! Of course mine won’t have the skill and prettiness of Heather’s, but I’m definitely inspired! See more of Heather’s work here, and learn a little bit more about pinhole art here!

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!
