Images: Pomme Sculptures by Emma Davies This morning I woke to the sound of a blackbird heralding the arrival of Spring. Don’t you think it’s ironic that such a sweet sound of hope can come from a bird that is pitch black? A much better fit would be with Emma Davies’ feathered friends. Emma uses …
Image: Kyouei Design Umbrella Pot Big fat raindrops have just started to fall. This makes me think of our gutters which have grass growing out of them like a red flag declaring how hopeless we are at home maintenance!

Image: Supermarket Sarah Supermarket Sarah I don’t think I have ever seen our fridge looking so pathetically bare. The lone egg and apple have asked for new tenants to join them, but instead of going to the supermarket I’ve spent all day procrastinating.

Images: Marie Claire Alexa Chung What’s the female version of a bromance? A girmance? A femance? Whatever it is, I’ve got it for IT-Brit, Alexa Chung. The model turned TV presenter and sometime DJ has a posse of friends – Daisy Lowe, Agyness Deyn and Kelly Osbourne – that I’d like to get on the …

Image: Made in Brazil Vogue Brazil Cover Having a bad day at work? It could be worse. A hell of a lot worse. You could be the one who misspelled the name of one of the greatest photographers of the 20th Century, Guy Bourdin, on the cover of Vogue Brazil. Things don’t seem so bad …
Images: Su Blackwell Book Cut Sculptures by Su Blackwell The librarian at my primary school continues to haunt me. In fact, to this day I still can’t bring myself to dog-ear a favourite page of a book. So I can only image what would happen if she came across Su Blackwell’s beautifully delicate paper sculptures. …
