  • Ceilings, surfaces, textures and patterns (a small collection)

    by Bevanward | 12th of October, 2010

    I'm often finding myself looking up at ceilings, developing a cricked neck! I think for the amount of attention to detail that goes into the construction of ceilings, and any surface for that matter, it is a shame we don't spend more time admiring them. Below is a collection... More

  • Crochet-ing

    by Littlelion | 12th of January, 2010

    As I said in my last post, it is really hard to find out where my stuff ends up being applied (and under which license), but when I do, most times, I am happy to report, they are used in items I wouldn’t mind have sitting in the living room, lying on the bed, hanging on... More
