More into sustainable stuff: recycled bottles become vases and glasses in the hands of qualified artists. Both pieces were found at Elsewares, a nice place to dig up hype new artists and unique designer pieces.
Also found there these fun coasters and this sun jar, with solar-powered cell and rechargeable battery!!!
Time to break the ice: get to know Ice Hotel, situated in Jukkasjärvi village , 200 kilometres north of the Arctic Circle in Sweden.
Made from pure blocks of ice from River Torne, the hotel is entirely built of ice and snow, creating a cozy spot in the middle of a harsh winter. Temperature? Around -5 °C to -8 °C... real warm, compared to outside... You get to sleep on a special bed built of snow and ice, on reindeer skins.
Crystal clear? Ready to book your stay?
It's so amazing what you can create with a ball of yarn and some creativity. Jessica Polka, whose dream is to become a biologist, used her talent to create the amazing sea creatures featured here today. If you'd like to take a deeper look at her work, there's also her blog, Wunderkammer, and her Etsy shop. Enjoy!
Go talk about it... bad architecture isn't always the architect's fault...
Spotted by an architect friend of mine.
I've studied digital magazines last year, and ever since I started looking at them I found out they changed quite a lot. At the beginning they looked like a draft copy of real magazines, with terrible turn-over pages and absolutely no use of web tools such as graphics, video, animation or sound. Today, however, a digital version of People magazine caught my eye. It surely has a lot of stuff still to work on, but is a great advance from what we had before.

About five years ago I found myself completely amazed by a simple lavender-blue leather wallet. The piece was one of Designers Guild brilliant works. I had completely forgotten about it until recently, when I found their website. Now, of course, I got all enchanted with their new collection. Take a look at more stationery, home goods, fragrances and accessoires from these gifted designers!
