    Teeny Tiny Paper Cuts

    2698611633_77a2537a6f These delicate paper cuts from artist Aoyama Hina are absolutely beautiful.

    3236597915_e81ff1bb12
    I would love to see them pinned in a shadow-box frame like paper butterflies made of poetry.

    See more of Hina's work here.

    Butter Cream Birdhouse

    Il_430xN.54852796
    This butter Cream birdhouse from Greenware Design is a bird house in name only.

    The gorgeous planter is actually designed for tillandsias (aka. airplants). Which totally explains that seemingly off-beat name.

    And in case you're worried where you will find a plant worthy of your new Greenware planter, it comes complete with it's very own.

    Butter Cream Birdhouse, $40.

    Lately I've been really digging quilts. I'm considering making one for my bed, but why make one myself when there are so many lovely quilts on etsy? This colorful bird quilt is my current fave, I wish it was in queen bed size!

    Red Pomegranate from Yoola

    Il_430xN.27551447
    The red pomegranate from Yoola might make the perfect Valetine's Day gift. After all, the pomegranate is a symbol of abundance, fertility and good luck.

     

    This particular pomegranate is hand-crocheted from fine metal wire. So that it will keep all year round, even if it is slightly less delicious than the real thing.

    Il_430xN.27551352Pomegranate, $95

    Beautiful

    The Taiwan Lantern Festival: over 5,000 lanterns are released into the sky. I don’t guess it’s very eco-friendly, but it sure is lovely.
