Wow! My Christmas cactus is so beautiful and so enormous! I re-potted it a few years ago and began sending it to summer camp on the porch. Must be ideal conditions because this is one happy plant. It has it's own chair by the best sunny window.

Lisa Kokin

I've been collecting buttons for a long time now, so I was blown away when I found Lisa Kokin’s website. I'm also drawn to the pixelated quality. Beautifully tender and exquisite work.

Wood, silver, textile, fluorite.
Mari Ishikawa

I love trees. This is from ALTERNATIVES. Beautifully delicate and feminine.

2ndSKIN Cork Jewellery

I was browsing Klimt02 and came across this interesting jewelry from 2ndSKIN, which is an international project/concept starting in Portugal. Cork is the
2ndSKIN of the tree just as jewelry is the 2ndSKIN of the human body.

These encaustic brooches are so unique... beeswax plus resin. And a wonderful color palette too.

Nicholas Wilton

I am such a huge fan of Nicolas Wilton. I love the composition of simple forms, the textures and energy in his work. His paintings feel like modern day cave drawings.

I love these brooches from Elsita at Etsy. They remind of a ceramic dishes from the 60s. Cute.
