Quirky and fun things.....

I find it fun to discover the creativity of other people and am impressed by their inventiveness, whether because on a tight budget or just because they love crafts and expressing their artistic and practical skills.

This DIY wall was featured in the Design Sponge blog:  What a creative approach to recycling old pieces of timber!

We recently visited friends in Bowral and I love the old cane chair and its hand painted cushion on the veranda.

This is a friend's house in Chile; she said she'd found the panels, which are painted on hessian, in a boutique when travelling in Costa Rica.  They were made up into a room divider as a changing space.  So she talked the owner into selling them to her and brought them home, then had them made up as you see below, and the effect is quite stunning.  Isn't the chandelier beautiful too!
