Welcome back dear readers, to the First Sunday Sessions of the year! Hooray! I have a little round up of nifty things I have come across on the interwebs this week, but first I just wanted to say thanks to all of you who had participated in the High Walls survey. It has been super helpful and interesting to hear what you guys have to say! I will be posting the stats soon for those of you who are interested. If you want to participate, you still can right HERE.
Okay, now onto the fun stuff:
LINE ONE / Oh Hello you adorable things! Japanese embroidery artist Hiroko Kubota was asked by her son to embroider some feline friends on the clothes she was making him and it wasn’t long before her amazing creations went viral! Each kitty is hand stitched onto pockets and shirts. You could even get them in her Etsy Store Go!Go!5, but at $200 - $300 a pop, they are a little out of my price range! (That doesn’t stop me from lusting over these cuties!)
LINE TWO / My boyfriend and I had a whole conversation in CAPS (via Skype) over these photos of ‘aquascaping’! Did you even know this was a thing?! These pictures are from the world’s largest nature aquarium and aquatic plants layout competition, the International Aquatic Plants Layout Contest (IAPLC) which is held annually. Do yourself a favour and check out the full photos, because they are incredible! Totally puts my childhood fish tank to shame!
LINE THREE / Putting faces on inanimate objects will never fail to amuse me. These fella’s are thanks to Canadian artist Aiden Glynn (via his tumblr Pizza and Pixels). Love it!
LINE FOUR / Have you seen Kitty and Buck’s Instagram challenge? Each month has a new color for you to instagram and hashtag with #kittyandbuckcolor. This month’s colour is white (which we all know is right up my alley!) so I have to get my butt into gear and submit an entry! (Images 1 / 2 / 3 / 4)
