Friday Find – Lace Printed Mirror


Mirrors are a great way to make a room appear a little larger, these offer a little more of a subdued mirror effect and double up as a bit of artwork for the home or lush bathroom…. with the added bonus of being able to blame the blemishes on your face on the aged effect of the mirror…. win win! They are the work of US based company Mirror-Tique who have perfected the techniques for antiquing and imprinting mirrors….. giving you a mirror and artwork in one.  They are also selling their work through Anthropologie (source of images), which I understand is soon to arrive on Australian shores.


On with the colourful journey…….

A little something for the weekend – Apothecary charm

It is that time of year when you start to rack you brains as to the perfect gift for that special person who has everything.  Well inspired by the potions and lotions of Halloween how about a little apothecary charm filled with something special. British designer Andy Poplar decided to set up Vinegar and Brown Paper after reaching “the end of his creative tether” in advertising.  Opting to set up the business to enable him to become a stay at home dad.

The collection includes, apothecary jars, mirrors, coffee plungers, milk bottles to name but a few….. so which is your favourite, and what would your potion be made up of?

Elixer of youth is the perfect potion for the peter pan in your life.  Or perhaps something to get this creative juices flowing….

Or perhaps the one I need most days to get this “Creative Juices” flowing…….Or perhaps a little extract of genius will help you beat the “know it all uncle” at scrabble!

 And wise words for anyone who has spilt some milk…….

For those who prefer their coffee black……
