the glam range is made from crystal acrylic and looks just like glass, but won’t break if accidentally dropped on your bathroom tiles!

a bit of magic

ok, so i think this little find is the sweetest. nothinbutwood have designed these little wooden doors to attach to your tree trunks! i know i would have loved these as a kid; but even now, i still thinks its cute!

Image Hosted by

there's also little wooden windows and chimneys available, but i think it's very easy to overdo it. in this case, the more subtle the better!

you can add a bit a magic to your garden with a fairy door via etsy.

my little pony

i came across the amazing mari kasurinen- an art student from lahti, finland, and just had to share her work with you!
inspired by her love for movies and video games, she uses paint and mixed media to recreate my little pony dolls into works of art.

these four legged fancies are extremely pricey, however, there are a few replicas floating around.

find them in high design decor stores, online stores and ebay.


pretty much in love with this. although, on me, i'd probably risk looking like a piñata.
