Annali Fabric by Stephanie Thannhauser for Dashwood
Dashwood ran two competitions over the summer, giving away some fabric,
fabric scraps and bits and pieces pre-made with Dashwood fabric. The lucky winners have been busy making their own creations
using the fabrics and they have shared some of those
makes. You can see them all on the Dashwood blog here. Emma was one of the winners and has made this sweet cat cushion using
the teal print from the Annali collection. Cool hey?
I'm not normally a big fan of folk music (I'm more of a rock chic) but I LOVE First Aid kit. The sound that Sisters Johanna and Klara Söderberg make is so perfect, beautiful and so in harmony it makes me stop for a moment and just wonder what it would be like to be able to sing like that.
I know I have blogged about this before but it really is worth going to if you have a chance. This time we experienced the Pentalum. It is a celebration of the beauty of geometry, inspired
by Islamic architecture, Gothic cathedrals, modern architectural
innovators and nature. A 5-sided pentagon shape is the base for the main
structure’s elements with the exception of the main dome, which, in
order to achieve more volume, is heptagonal (7-sided) in form.
Its really quite magical experience almost
other-worldly and it was right in the centre of Milton Keynes shopping centre. Since 1992 Architects of Air’s luminaria have made over 600 exhibitions
in 40 countries. From Berlin to Brooklyn, Hong Kong to Hawaii, Taipei
to Tel Aviv, Sao Paulo to the Sydney Opera House, these incredible
luminaria have enchanted audiences around the world. To find out more take a look at their website here
