Apparently something like 80 families a month are leaving our shores for "greener pastures". My stats may be off but if so, I doubt it's by that much. I'm neither here nor there in judgement and am not averse to leaving here myself, but it won't be for reasons commonly held as valid by the masses. Read this . Note also the USA emerged as the most popular choice in a recent survey, followed by the UK, Australia and New Zealand. Thanks to Flickr user flint knits for the pic.

This is for my sister, Londoners and other regular riders of trains. You've seem them, I've seen them and hell you have perfected some of these yourself. Illustrations by Olimpia Zagnoli. Found on the Faesthetic blog.
Was browsing the net looking for ideas and inspiration for an upcoming exhibition I'm working towards and found these. Tugboat Printshop are, to quote their profile splurb a "printshop, frameshop, and studio space located in Pittsburgh, PA. We specialize in woodcuts and etchings but also make drawings, gardens, renovations, and dinner." Love the way they look on the wall above.
Love the little collections San Francisco mixed media artist and illustrator Lisa Congdon's got going on. Thrift store junkies and flea-market fiends this is for you. See her website, etsy page, gallery and blog links here. Oh wow just saw now there's a similar post about collections on the Elle decor blog here, check it out.
If you work in printing, IT, design or advertising or for any company that requires you to deal with people on a daily basis, visit this site and find comfort in the fact that you are not alone....not by a long shot.
My mate Wok, who is a regular supplier of all links cool sent me this yesterday. Created by Alessandro Beda this ( yet to be produced ) two piece flower vase/holder is just fantastically designed and so well thought out. Just beautiful. Read more here.
