Miniature World

Oh how I admire little pretty things. Not only they make the fantasy world more real but also provide comfort that the Fantasy Land does not exist… Here are the three little things I am in love with today:

Little white flower bear with green

Rabbit diet. With tomato. Brooch.

Sunday Eye Candy: PomPoms

It is cloudy and drowsy today where I am so I am browsing through Etsy and admiring people’s ideas and the craftwork that takes ordinary days to a higher unexplored level where colors play circles and shapes become lucid.

My pick of a moment is an artist called dadaya and the oversized colorful pompoms of her. I want one. What about you?

Where Does Your Inspiration Come From?

Recently I got a very nice collection or very nice craft paper. The most beautiful I have ever had.  Since today I was admiring it from afar.. Today I decided I am ready to make beautiful art with it and ran into a tiny bit of a dilemma.. I don’t feel making collages with it. I am not huge in origami either… For a minute I had an idea creating miniature furniture out of it and then decided that maybe not..

So I have a question for you, creative souls, what projects have you done and are proud of? What mediums do you like mixing and most importantly, where does your inspiration come from?

Looking forward to hearing from you !

Is there a link between the perfect shoes and perfect men (besides the fact that perfect men wear shoes)?

I won’t lie, the last couple years of my life have been about perfect men and perfect shoes. My perfect shoes took me to nicest places, wildest parties, introduced me to chivalrous men, and were there for me whenever I needed them. While perfect men, well, they took me to nice places, introduced me to nice things, showered me with nicest words and Shakespearean compliments. And then I always ended up wondering what was that I enjoyed more, my perfect shoes or a company of a perfect man?

It is nearly impossible to fall out of love with a perfect shoe. It will be always there for you. 24/7, in your worst moods, saddest days, happiest moments and most intimate nights.. It will always indulge you in thrilling trips to local bars where you will meet beautiful interesting people, guys and girls. Old and young. Lawyers living between Paris and New York who will take you on their own private jet for a transatlantic trip, artists who will cuddle you in their gallery in the middle of day and offer you a cup of tea because they are short of $$, womanizers who will be fantastic kissers and you will secretly wish that regular nice guys would kiss the same way. The perfect shoe will introduce you to the variety of things and people in the world. It will allow you to cheat on them with other pairs of shoes and won’t say even a word because they know that whatever you do and wherever you go, you always will be doing nicest things, going to nicest places, and meeting nicest people with them. ..

While a perfect man… A perfect man will be always a perfect man. He will become like an essential part of your life. Like a missing piece in a puzzle. He will be always there, will make the whole picture look better and you will enjoy that nice picture that has no missing pieces. 

And then, one day you, like me, will find asking yourself, what is there that we search and long for perfectness, adore a company of a perfect man and more than anything else like wondering the streets in our perfect pair of shoes and which one we enjoy more? Isn’t it strange that the same perfectness that we long for is appreciated differently? That we change one perfect man into another and then to another while a perfect pair of shoes remains the same….

I think a perfect man doesn’t exist. What we call “a perfect man” is simply a set of traits and characteristics that we find attractive at a given period in our lives. It is nothing more than our imagination and sometimes even vain and shallow need for something different or even entertaining what would brighten up our days and spice up our nights… This is what a perfect man is – a continuously evolving imaginative picture of ours of somebody we want to meet because that somebody is highly desired by a pop culture, your parents, friends or you simply just think that it might work for you at that moment.

BUT – 

what is most important, perfect shoes attract perfect men 🙂 and it doesn’t really matter what is “perfect” for you and me. “Perfect” is just “perfect.” You feel happy about the “perfect” and the “perfect” makes you laugh….
