Monday Blogday ~ High 5 :: Photography

Why do I find blogging on Mondays so difficult? To be honest, one of the reasons I began this Monday BlogDay series is because it’s an easy way for me to start the week. I love reading blogs and spend way too much time doing it, so my thought was to share a favourite blog with you each Monday and it would be a bit of a no brainer start for me (and hopefully enjoyable for you!). And yet I still find it so hard to wind up after the weekend. Always.

Maybe it’s because I do have so many favourite blogs that I find it hard to decide on which one I should write about. I’ve been sitting here for ages tonight (Sunday evening) going from blog to blog, getting distracted and side tracked and not comitting to anything.

So today I’m going to give you a list of 5 blogs that I love because – amongst many other things – the [original] photography is so beautiful.

Enjoy your Monday – are you getting back into the swing of it after the weekend?

New Vintage Storybook Tiles

Phew, at last! My new range of Vintage Storybook Tiles will be available from the red thread website next week. Here’s a sneak peek.

The text on this tile reads:
They all sit down at the kitchen table. And they eat bread-and-butter-and-brown-sugar and drink down big glasses of milk. What a splendid way to finish up a rainy afternoon!

How very of the time!

Thanks for visiting me this week. Have a lovely weekend, see you Monday.

The Sartorialist Takes Sydney

Did you know that Scott Schuman aka The Sartorialist is in Sydney?

Get your glad rags on!

Out of respect of The Sartorialist’s strong copyright statement I’m not going to repost any images, but go visit because, as you would expect there are some lovely shots of stylish folks on the streets of both Sydney and Melbourne.

Edit: Is my photo of the Opera House a bit too obscure or did you recognise it?

The Fedrigoni [Paper] Mountains

Illustrator and set maker Hattie Newman and graphic designer Alex Ostrowski collaborated to create this fantastic paper sculpture of the Fedrigoni Mountains in Verona Italy. The Fedrigoni Mountains project involved 12 illustrators who each depicted the birthplace of paper manufacturer Fedrigoni.

The faceted pieces in those lovely layered colours, the type and the tiny details are all so thoughtfully and beautifully done.

Bottom 2 images Nicholas Saunders (co-curator)

I really appreciate the technical and mathematical genius when I see the close ups and the image above… it makes my head spin thinking about designing and making such a detailed faceted construction.

Hattie Newman and Alex Ostrowski also worked together on this beautiful tree for YCN.

Etsy Search Top 10… Plus One

Oops, I just realised that I left my favourite linen tea towel by Flower Press out of my 10 Shop Local listings. I love the combination of the unbleached natural linen with the white filigree design.

Flower Press has 20% off cotton tea towels at the moment so snap one up while you can.
