Kitchen with hanging plants and cool shoes

While I'm on the subject of gardens and plants here's a kitchen I love (found via 2 or 3 things). Also some cool shoes that are a collaboration between Vivienne Westwood and Melissa. xxxx

Maria Sibylla Merian

When I was making the kalidescope-butterfly image I was looking at a book of illustrations by Maria Sibylla Merian, who was a botanical artist working in the 1700's. I've posted the front cover of the book along with another illustration of hers which I found here. xxxx

Yulia Brodskaya

I saw the above Christmas image in the Guardian, which led me to find out who the artist was: Yulia Brodskaya. I found the other great paper illustrations from her website. Lovely and festive for the first post of the year. xxxx
