Things That Made Me Smile This Week

My blog has moved and changed name to DESIGN SODA, I’d love it if you followed along with my new content there.

 

  1. As summer begins to falter and the plethora of butterflies in the city dissipates I have been looking back at pictures taken of all the pretty the butterflies we saw in the butterfly house at the Natural History Museum. Butterflies are, along with sangria, the smell of sun cream and gelato one of my very favourite things about the summer season.

  2. Stefan Zweig’s only full length novel Beware of Pity recently published in this striking imprint, we are reading it this month for book group, a heartbreaking, melancholic, aching ode to the fragility of the human condition, read it, you won’t regret it.getimage39-665x1024.aspx
  3. This beautiful copper watering can gifted to us in a loft clearance by family:IMG_5758
  4. Outsider Art on show in the latest exhibition at The Hayward Gallery. If you like the idea of fantastical imaginary cities, homes made from wreckage found in forests changing structure in tune with their landscape, an alternative Miss Universe and audacious architectural renderings of blueprint towns then ‘The Alternative Guide to The Universe’ is for you, but get in quick, exhibition ends 26th August. My particular favourite was Congolese artist Bodys Isek Kingelez’s cardboard cities (below) with special note also to inter-war artist Achilles Rizzoli.
