Helene Deroubaix of The Fairy Attic sent an email to introduce us to her gorgeous artwork. She is a mixed media artist and poetic writer and combines both of these talents in her art, creating nostalgic visual poetry that I think is adorable. She has photos up on Flickr as well so have a look. Here are some of my favourites.
I got a call this morning from my folks (and grandmother who's here visiting) to tell me that they were 10 minutes from my house and heading out antiquing and asked if I wanted to tag along. UH......YEAH! To top it off, they were going to the same place where I scored most of my finds the last time. And OH MY, did I score again. It's kind of dark and cloudy outside so I'll take the evening to clean things up and post more photos tomorrow of everything in their new homes. Here's a preview.

Kim and I receive so many emails sharing interesting blogs, websites and products that we decided to start a new feature. WINKS - weekend links. Here we'll list what has come in during the week, things we think you'll like to see. If you'd want to see your blog or website featured email us and if we think it fits with our readers we'll link you.
- Cool art tutorial website and blog from Lara Berch. Just starting but promises to be heaps of fun!

I found a Swedish website called Skeppsholmen Fastighetsmäkleri with fabulous modern homes and apartments for sale. I love the photo above. Mixing modern elements such as the table and chairs with something totally unexpected like the ornate traditional chandelier brings such excitement to a room.
