I love my camera

Do you secretly love your Digital SLR more than your own mother/partner perhaps even child? Then say hello to the lens cap bracelet. Nothing says 'I love my camera' like wearing one of these little cuties. This little accessory, design by Adam Elmakias is a one size fits all silicone creation and the best bit is you can choose the focal length that best represents you.

Now you don't need your camera around your neck to attract nerdy DSLR talk with fellow shutterbugs, when prominently displayed, this little accessory will facilitate all the camera chit-chat you desire.

Green is our new favourite colour

We are both currently working on cultivating our respective gardens, weeeell were more in supervision roles were not actually allowed to touch anything. Nevertheless it's got us researching unique ways to grow and display all things green.  We are both loving these vintage plant and vase ideas. Check them out in flickr-land...

Stick With It

Our super lovely and oh so talented pals, Dave Ladd and Stephanie Anderson (aka He She It They I.) recently embarked on a window display for Incu clothing store in Victoria Galleries. 

As a couple that work, live and play together this hand crafted collection of oversized bits and bobs seems to be a charming shrine of sorts to their long standing partnership. In their words it is a ‘light-hearted look at the scale of relationships and their relationship to scale.’  You can find a mini shelf-size installation in the woman's Incu city store. Check it out.

The pair recently snuck off to Japan to get hitched which makes looking at this winsome display all the more lovley! Congrats kids. x

Pimp my ride

So we love riding our bikes. Our bikes are particularly awesome because they have baskets and bells (also Mel has a cool Vietnamese helmet that looks like a hat). However we can't help but feel our cycles could do with a little extra pimping after seeing this AMAZING and darn right adorable entry to the Seoul Cycle Design Competition 2010. It's called 'Horsey' and it's an attachable bicycle ornament/accessory which makes one's bicycle look horsey!  It's designed by Eungi Kim who's goal was to "give a special look to bicycles so that people would care about cycling not only as transportation but also as a lovely pet."  [designboom]
