Excellent Idees

Flipping through the June 2006 Marie Claire idees that I got at B&N the other day, I happened upon a piece (that I can't read) about Lyndie Dourthe. How fabulous is her work? Litte paper flowers and butterflies, totally delightful.

Marieke Berghuis of Treats and Treasures has offered up the directions for a little felt box (that I plan on trying to make) and a wonderful example of how she uses hers.

This really made me smile today, Thanks! Karin! I love the unexpected, shapes and ways he uses the flowers. It is definitely a giggle and AHHHH moment. This guy is a genius, I only wish I could see his work IN PERSON -- Per Benjamin via Karin. See more of his and his partner’s work at Life 3. I love what Tomas De Bruyne does with petals.

And while I am talking about beauty and flowers, I would love a set of Karin's rose plates and bowl. One more find from Karin, Ayumi Horie's lanterns that would look wonderful in MY backyard.
