I am incredibly impressed with the ingenuity of these people. They saw something spectacular in a simple storage trailer…a home. Just look at how the revamped these common eyesores and made them into a thing of beauty. It never would have occurred to me to use them for anything more than they’re common purpose, but these people gave them a higher one.
- I just wanted to leave a placeholder for this post tonight before I go to bed so I wouldn’t forget. Tomorrow I’ll be sure to add links and additional information about these extraordinary dwellings…tonight I’m just exhausted. Sweet Dreams Tumblrs!-
Want! Why have I not heard of this site before?
Wow! How cool is this? This artist creates all her pieces by hand with a few simple tools, no machines or heating of the metal - yet she still managed to bend the tines of this vintage fork into an unique design.
If you could see me right now you’d see how giddy with joy these little darlings make me. I’m always searching for something new/unique and something with a little vintage flair, and these bracelets couldn’t be more perfect. I need one of these bracelets, now the only problem is…which one do I chose?
…title says it all. *siiigh*
I’m fighting back yawns and droopy eyelids as I write this. I’ve seen so many things tonight that I’m excited to share with you, so many things I can’t wait to try out myself, but time has gotten away from me again and I feel that I must get some rest now or I’ll regret it in the morning. But I’ll leave you with one last post for the night. I posted a single photo of this artist’s work a few weeks ago, but I felt so drawn to this piece that I thought I should go into greater detail. Julia Hepburn created this piece that could pass for either an art installation or a dreamy rustic bedroom. From a distance it looks like a cozy cabin bedroom, upon closer inspection you’ll find much more. Lanterns glowing like fairy lights above your head…lanterns that could capture your dreams. Each one holds an intricate miniature of a dream-some whimsical, some frightening.
The careful, exacting detail in each piece shows the care and creativity Hepburn puts into her work. Hepburn says there’s no link between each dream, and the pieces are made for viewers to interpret in their own ways. It seems appropriate to blog about this…given my current dreamy haze as I prepare myself for bed. Sweet Dreams Tumblrs!
