The photos below showcases a beautiful series of furniture designed and crafted by designer William Stranger. Each piece is made out of reclaimed strips of wood salvaged from a local bowling alley and transformed into its second life.
Talk about wood being a simply beautiful medium!

I am a huge fan of beautiful pretty things, in particular cute underwear. So every time I come across this site I just want to sign up for it and see what will be delivered to my door.
'Panty By Post' is such a fun idea, they send pretty French underwear in the mail monthly and you never know what you are going to get. It is always a new surprise and a special treat to you.
The only reason I haven’t signed up for it yet is the fact that I have too many cute pieces as it is.

Halloween is so close by, and as each day passes I keep trying to think of what I want to be this year. For some reason I am having an incredibly tough time making my decision.
I even thought of using the concept in the movie ‘Coraline’—the door to another world for a costume. However I have the funny suspicion that no one would get it.
So as I procrastinate further about what I want to be, I have decided to post a few items I found on Etsy that I thought would make great additions to a costume.

Here is a delicate flora and fauna area rug, Is it perfect for your house?
Well only if you don’t mind having a rug made out of hand squeezed silicone goo by Heike Weber.
She uses strategically flung out lines and hand-rendered plans to make her vision come to life, which enables each piece to invade the vast space and create this unimaginable force.

Green plants and flowers are a great way to decorate your office or home. Here is an elegantly understated bonsai tree kit that has clean lines and an industrial recycled steel material packaging, perfect for any modern day interior.
I personally do not have the green thumb, but this would make a great addition to the collection to those that do. The kit includes everything you need to know to grow and sculpt the tree to create a living work of art.

My jaw simply dropped when I came across these designs by Klaus Burgel. If only I could buy each and everyone of his pieces.
Burgel, is inspired by nature and the sensual properties of the artist’s materials, which can be blatantly seen in the way he present his pieces. They are either presented in an unpolished state to show the impoverished appearance of the material, or in it’s utterly brilliant state.
I just love his amazing weighted pendants made out of semi-precious stones and gold.

Bike culture is a huge thing in Toronto, particularly in the past few years. This is probably due to the current green revolution and trend. So for all those bike lovers out there and other considering about joining in on this bike culture, here is a little nifty gadget for storing your bike in your home or office space.
Cycloc is a stylish and practical wall mount, to hang your bike out of the way. It has a unique shape, which when combined with the weight of the bike helps to lock it instantly in place.
