Since March of last year, a series of wonderful and whimsical paper sculptures have been anonymously left on tables and shelves in libraries in Edinburgh, Scotland.

The sculptures are made from books and pages of books, and extol the virtues of book and libraries. They were often accompanied by notes, one of which reads in part: …” In support of Libraries, Books, Words, Ideas […] and All things ‘magic’…”

There were, over a period of months, 10 sculptures left by the mysterious artist, who on the last sculpture left a note signing off with “Cheers Edinburgh it’s been fun!

Found this, here. I think they’re all great.

Rupert Blanchard is a salvager. He rescues unwanted things and crafts them into beautiful, one-of-a-kind pieces of furniture.

His work is truly magnificent. His blog is where you can get a behind the scenes look at his projects, as well as a comprehensive ogle at all his wonderful creations made thus far.

I genuinely go weak at the knees over good handbags. If you real-life know me, I’m sure you think that odd. But the fact of the matter is that there are magicians out there like John D’Aponte who know exactly what women want. And it’s always well designed, beautiful handbags.

I’m a big fan of ‘Reduce, Reuse, Recycle’ and the general reclamation culture. These incredible balancing blocks from Poketo are ideal.

Made from salvaged wood, these blocks cross the boundary of being merely a toy. I’d happily have them adorn my coffee table, or just about any place in my dream home.

Christmas is undeniably here.

Eurgh.

As much as I am a scrooge, I sort of definitely wholeheartedly love these Christmas tree alternatives from Wood & Wool Stool.

The recycled wooden (x-mas) trees are approximate 43/45 cm high and are made out of 6 different planks. There’s a small piece of string attached to the back so you can hang it on a wall. You can screw small hooks in the planks so that you can decorate the tree.
