Now I know that everybody has seen these ones, they've been around for ages and sell for a good little chunk of money, but did you could make your own at home, it's simple.

1. Visit THIS webpage and copy paste the image into Microsoft word, then play around and make the image exactly the size you want it.

2. Step two's simple, hit print, make sure settings are set to print in colour AND fast draft, so as the words are a little faded, this will make the image we're about to put over the top of it stand out.

3. Find your image, this can be whatever you want it to be, in my opinion sketches work the best but images with subtle colour turn out great as well, I went for one of Lewis Carrolls beautiful Alice in Wonderland sketches.

4. Copy paste your image onto the same Microsoft Word Document and shrink and position it over your background (Don't stress about the white box around the image, you wont see that) Once it's in place, delete the background so your image is the only thing on the page.

5. Now place your previous print out of your background in the printer face down and make sure the top of the page goes in first. Press Print and change your setting to 'BEST' and 'Print in Grayscale' now just wait for it to pop out of the printer and there you have it your very own Dictionary Art.

I honestly think these would have to be the trendiest Wallets I have seen in a while. Todays Friday find is brought to you by Holstee these amazing designs are made completely from recycled plastic bags and newspapers that have been collected around Delhi. Now I know they don't really have anything to do with Interior Design BUT they are upcycled and look absolutely awesome so I think they deserve their 15 minutes of fame. They are only $28 dollars so why not grab yourself a new wallet and do your bit to cut down land fill in a style. Now these aren't the only awesome product to come out of Holstee so drop by their store and have a look, theirs a whole lot of trendy gear over there

I don't know if you've heard of this one before but the design world is starting on these amazingly colourful and very unique designs involving silk string. I know at first glance it doesn't really look like they'd support your weight, and honestly for a while I was thinking, how on earth would string be able to hold a persons weight (mind you I was picturing knitting wool, don't ask me why) but this stuff is super strong and super awesome. These designers have thrown away the rule book along with upholstery and padding and replaced them with wooden frames and brightly coloured silk string. I think the string creates a visual effect that no fabric can create, it really gives it a 3 dimensional feel and the possibilities really are endless!!
Keep your eyes out, I've got a feeling this trend is only going to get bigger from here.

Now I know almost EVERYBODY has old records laying around the house, so why not get them out on display, earlier in the year I did Upcycle one of my own Records but it didn't look anywhere near this awesome. So draw some inspiration from these, maybe turn yours into a family portrait or even display the beautiful moment that instantly spring to mind when you hear those songs, it's completely up to you, have fun with it. Now I know you obviously can't do this by yourself so it's not completely DIY but draw up your own design and take it to a laser cutters, hours later you'll be bring home your personalized and very unique record clock.

At the moment, these tiny little Light Globe Terrarium's are my favorite thing in the world. They are so adorable and so easy to make all you need is some potting mix, a small amount of Moss and equal parts Water and Buttermilk. Mix the Moss, Buttermilk and Water in a blender and pour it into a spray bottle, spray the solution onto your dirt and keep it moist, now there you have it, instant moss.
You can even put miniature buildings, tree's even people inside to create any scene you want. They're extremely easy to maintain and so AWESOME!! I'm obsessed, so reuse your old light globes and make your own little world.

Now any of you who know me know that alongside my love of all things rustic and Vintage I also have a crazy obsession with Disney, so when I saw this little guy I knew he had to be my Friday Find. Straight out of Alice in Wonderland, this would be great for any little girls room (even a few of the big kids would appreciate this one) I just can't get over how adorable he is. So if you want to get your little girl one, they're available here on Etsy, don't miss out!!

These little beauties are just adorable. I payed $24 dollars for each one and payed $18 in paints to redo each one. They were old timber, the stain was chipping away and they just looked worse for wear (Now I do love all things rustic, but I could just see these being soo cute painted in pastel) so I sanded them back, peeled off ALL the old wood stain and started painting. The paint I used said a second coat could be applied every half an hour and it was a scorcher outside so the paint dried super quick. Honestly I was done in about 4 hours (including sanding) and teamed it up with an adorable 1920's Wooden Dining Table (That's a whole other story)
It's a great project to fill a lazy day at home AND AREN'T THEY JUST ADORABLE!!!!
