A splendid mix of treats today - have fun!
The Mixko etsy store shows only a small selection of the entire Mixko range. Nahoko Koyama and Alexander Garnett's Mixko website shows a complete collection, that is diverse and striking, - from ceramic rings to t-shirts.
But it is their amazing 'Delight' wool felt lampshades that I want to showcase today. Have you seen them? Individually handmade using a technique that is similar to those used in shoe making, the designers use metal cutters to hand cut each butterfly and shape each shade by hand. Have a look:

I feel like I have been doing this a lot lately - directing you straight to the website of an artist...Yellena James definitely fits into the 'you-need-to-just-go-to-her-website' category! She is so, so talented that you really just have to go and check out her work yourselves. I'm finding it hard to come up with words that describe her work... may be 'breath-taking' is appropriate?
OOOhhhhh! It's Friday tomorrow and the end of this 4th Alphabet. As I mentioned earlier in the week we take a Alphabetical break next week...So instead of the usual format, I've got some exciting bits and bobs to share with you...I know you'll love it!
