what a door!

I was visiting a friend last week in her apartment in the mountains.  As I walked up the stairs I was greeted with what has now become my most favourite door and door furniture ever (so far)!

This door was hand carved and I believe the Horse door handle was too!  The patterns were on both sides of the door and they echoed the details of the interior including the lines of the pitched ceiling and the stepped detail either side of the fireplace.  

AWESOMELY KITSCH!  What do you think?

this tissue paper thing...

I am seeing tissue paper pom pom's on all the websites, in all the magazines and at every party and wedding.  They look fantastic particularly when mixed with different hanging lanterns and flowers.

Eager to know what all the fuss is about, I ordered some tissue paper of my own to see what I could come up with, possibly for decorating our own wedding.

I love the idea of inexpensive wedding decorations as weddings can be costly.  But I don't necessarly want pom pom's, rather something a little more original so here is what I came up with...

Then just to entertain myself for a few hours, I got a bit more colourful with different styles and technques...
