Mr and Mrs Charlie

Welcome to the wonderland home of Mr and Mrs Charlie. Charlie Kinyon, an artist working in Austin and Sydney  and Melissa Ninham creator and maker, weaver of wire and rope and dreams. Together they create and explore. This is a way of thinking, a way of living, a way of creating beauty, an expression and a statement. I love it. I wish I could live like this. (At least for a few days .... I think that is all I'd be brave enough to do.) Finding beauty in the old, the odd, the found, the discarded. You can see more on their blog and their instagram.

Thanks for helping me with a rather persistent bout of insomnia - i find each pic compelling as art but would have trouble living in any of them. I particularly love the funky bird cages.

I LOVE it. This is comforting and soothing. I feel a home. Surrounded by so many little treasures there is peace and purpose in the chaos. I know I may be one of the few (or the only) but I would move in tomorrow.

loved this post. Feels like my grandfather's barn, where he collected all the bits others discarded. Dusty, moody, intriguing. So much to explore.

Under the rubric "wabi sabi," there's a lot of decor that is really just shabby, dark, cluttered and probably none too clean. Case in point.

Not for me at all. I have a really hard time with the shabby look. The freak in me wants to paint the table, put up a nice crisp curtain instead of a wrinkled one, etc. Absolutely no broken piece of wood to hang stuff on, it just looks 'broken' to me.

The cluttered, worn, shabby look just makes me uncomfortable in a highly weird way. LOL
