Gotta love this photo styling from Prunella! First time I've ever used the word "adorable" to describe soap. Seriously, they had me at miniature puppies. Be sure to check out the special Valentine collection, never mind it being only 11 1/2 months away, which can be customized for those special people in your life!

Don't you just love discovering ways to re-use items that have been long-forgotten about? I'm thinking about my vintage brooches! I know I have a few lying around that I never use (not too many outfits call for a fancy brooch, you know?) But see how beautiful (and expensive) they look when put on top of a napkin at a dinner table? Or what about using it to finish off a wrapped gift? Take a look at these images from Glitter Guide to discover more inspiring ideas!
Because I don't have much of a sweet tooth, it wasn't until recently that I found myself getting into the whole cupcake craze. Based on presentation alone, I can't help but appreciate all the imagination people put into these little baked treats. I've been inspired by so many of the ideas coming from these cupcakes, like when I saw this dried pineapple flower garnish over at Annie's Eats. I love how impressive looking, yet incredibly easy to make they are! This idea doesn't have to just stop at cupcakes. These dried pineapple flowers can also be used to garnish salads, meat, rice... endless possibilities! Check out Annie's Eats for more cupcake decorating and baking ideas!
Ania Pauser was recently selected as the "Young designer of the year" by Plaza Magazine for her gorgeous laser cut pendant lamps made out of aero plywood and paper. The jury's comment: "AniaPausers lamp in laser-cut wood is like something straight out of Arabian Nights - fabulous!"... I couldn't agree more. They look like they came straight out of a Moroccan dream!

I don't know how/why it took so long for me to discover Scion wallpapers and fabrics... but I did. And it makes me happy. I'm digging their patterns- with everything from rustic and natural, to hip and illustrative. The bright color palettes are so refreshing! Especially that blue/orange combo. And if patterned wallpaper is a bit too overwhelming for your taste, one of their pillows could just as easily give you that pop of design you're looking for!
