    I know we’ve already looked at some animal sculptures today, but these are just so dear! Kyoko Okubo crafts these little figures from washi, a traditional Japanese paper. I can’t believe they are made out of paper! You’ve gotta love the twig antlers too! See many more of Kyoko’s cute creations here. Via Booooooom! (…) Read more »

    These gorgeous animals were sculpted using driftwood found on beaches. They are so incredible! I am amazed at how well they flow together- I don’t know how the artist, Heather Jansch, manages to put the wood together so perfectly! Heather has been sculpting for nearly 40 years, and she has tons of other work on (…) Read more »

    Artist Heather Benning created this life-size dollhouse from an abandoned farmhouse in Saskatchewan! One outside wall has been completely replaced with plexiglass to create the dollhouse view. Heather also decorated the house with 60′s furnishings, on account of that is when the house was apparently abandoned. I would love to go and visit this in (…) Read more »

    Can you believe this tiny little garden?! The Green Capsule only grows one seed at a time – the kit comes with tomato, sweet basil, cabbage and green pepper. I like that it has a little strap! It’s designed to be attached to your cellphone but I think I might rather wear mine around my (…) Read more »

    Isn’t this combination pet-home cool? It’s really neat that the birds and fish can look at one another. I wonder what they think? I would love to have one of these! I saw it here at the site of Constance Guisset, who I am assuming is the creator of this sweet cage… While we’re on (…) Read more »

    I can’t decide if these are kind of cute or rather creepy. I’m torn – maybe somewhere in between… Either way, they’re really interesting, and original! They’re made by Emily Valentine, and you can see them all on her site. It’s worth looking at, there are quite a few and they’re all different – I (…) Read more »
