Smilerynker: my favorite new blog

I've always admired Scandinavian design.. but this blog took my breath away. This super cool mom has an excellent taste in every way (even how she dresses up her kids)  and talent of mixing patterns. Even if I don't understand anything in the blog (I think it's in danish), it's been really inspiring for me, and I hope for everyone as well. You can check it out in here: Smilerynker and her Flickr account.

Casa Cubo (Cube House)

This is a small project I made for school a while ago.. It was all about a very small living area and experimenting a different rendering technique..

DIY: Vintage tea tin pendant lights

I'm usually the kind of person that saves up all type of jars and vintage collectibles, like the DIY jar glass frames idea, this is another way to show off your beautiful metal boxes.. I always end up cluttering junk in them, so why don't use them, and turn them in a beautiful lighting fixture.
Just buy a low-wattage lamp kit, drill a hole the appropriate size in the bottom of the tin, wire it, attach pendants & voila!
