Victorian-esque Collage

Pretty pretty! This charming print is by Arizona artist Linda Norton and I found it in her Etsy shop.

The Carnival is Over

This exquisite Dead Can Dance fan video was created by Slovakian artist, sculptor, and director Ondrej Rudavsky. He posts on Youtube that the Warner Music Group had requested the video be removed for copyright infringement, so he wrote to Brenden Perry and got his personal permission for the video to be available on Youtube again. Not at all surprising, considering the high level of creativity and craftsmanship here! 

"So, here it is again, still not over, this carnival."  -Ondrej Rudavsky

Wonderful sculptures from the artist's website.

Perfect Studio!

I fall in love with spaces that would be ideal for a studio pretty often. This one I think may be the best I have seen yet!

Atmosphere is very important, and this space is just loaded with it. Imagine how cozy it would be in a rainstorm!

I took the photo from a wonderful website comprised of carefully selected borrowed images called Cantyshanty. The sense I get is that the poster simply enjoys collecting ideas for eclectic home decor and upcycling (and he/she probably is addicted to design magazines). It's a real treat to look through! If something doesn't grab you hard-- you aren't paying attention! Check it out at

Here is another image I particularly fancied. As the website owner states "Images are copyright of their respective owners. I just don't know who they are." ...Enjoy!
