Idea for holidays in Scotland


I was visiting Papa Stour - the fabulous Scottish craft and design online store - when I discovered, on their website, this charming cottage in Scotland. I've never been to Scotland and it would be a dream to pass my holidays in a place like this! I can't go but maybe someone of you is looking for an idea. The cottage - refurbished by Papa Stour - is called Callakille, it is situated in the North West Highlands of Scotland and it is available to rent on a weekly basis.
" Callakille is located eight miles north of Applecross in one of the most beautiful parts of Scotland, with fabulous uninterrupted views over to Skye, Raasay and Rona.
The croft has been decorated to a high standard, with 2 bedrooms, a double and a twin, a well equipped kitchen and a snug living room with wood burning stove. It is a 2 hour drive from Inverness airport which has car hire companies."

Coffeeklatch showcases pictures and interviews with creative entrepreneurs in their homes or daily working environments. Because we believe in diversity, various disciplines are addressed.

Etsy finds - 3 - decoration

01 - Ceramic mosaic tiles, Doggy stuff - Handmade


02 - Robot - Wood Cut Out - Room Decoration
I like these two project I just saw on Etsy:
01 : set of 15 dog house's, fire hydrant's, dog bone's colored in black, red, white (gloss glaze). The pieces have been made out of wet clay then painted, glazed, and fired in a kiln twice, which makes them strong and waterproof. They are flat on the back for easy attachment to any project.
from MosaicMonkey

02: An adorable wooden robot that will make you smile. He is a perfect decoration for any room. This robot is cut from 3/4" formaldehyde free plywood. The one shown is painted electric blue, but there are many colors to choose from. There is a keyhole on the back for easy hanging.

Thousands of stickers for thousands of kids

The Obliteration Room is the amazing installation for the Queensland Gallery of Modern Art by the artist Yayoi Kusama. Beginning from a large white painted environment, the museum’s smallest visitors were asked to stitch colored dot stickers to personalize the space, great idea!

Vitamin Well - from Sweden


When I went to Copenhagen, I couldn't avoid being attract from the elegant packaging of Swedish Vitamin Well's waters and I began collecting them;-) My preferred is the reload!
Vitamin Well was launched in Sweden in 2008 as “the tasty, healthy drink filled with minerals”. Its success was far greater than anyone could imagine. Neumeister were contracted to add an even greater clarity to the design and give the brand a new lease of life. The design was revamped and developed. The labelling and the packaging – everything got a new clear structure, which nevertheless kept the original idea clearly in focus.

Branch - Ilaria Marelli for Coro

Branch - designed by Ilaria Marelli for Coro - is an outdoor furniture collection: sunshade, tables and coffee tables, chairs and armchairs with a variety of seat “dresses”, inspired by stylized trunks and branches of trees. I'd instantly choose the sunshade!
Branch - designed by Ilaria Marelli for Coro - è una collezione di arredi per esterno: elemento parasole, tavoli e tavolini, sedie e poltroncine, dal vestito “intercambiabile”, ispirati a una stilizzazione delle orme naturali di rami d’albero. L'ombrellone lo prenderei al volo;-)
