I have a thing for re-purposing, so when I first saw Turkish photographer Sakir Gökçebag's photos my mouth dropped - WAIT, is that watermelon?. Meticulously slicing fruits and veggies to create striking geometric arrangements which he then photographs, Gökçebag's work reminds me of this with a mix of this (and don't kid yourself, this is much harder than it looks - trust me, I tried).

Not that anyone needs another excuse to visit Melbourne or (more specifically) a shop called The Candy Room (you had me at hello) but if you are planning a trip, you might want to include this on your itinerary. Designed by RED Design Group this amazingly branded shop is like a children's illustration come to life, highlighting it's yummy products as the only 3D elements. Good design is so tasty :) Via Decor8
This weekend is filled with two sides to kinda the same coin. Passover sedar on Saturday (which starts at HML's bedtime) and Easter brunch on Sunday (which starts at HML's naptime). I wonder who will be more cranky, her Jewish or her Catholic side? ----- I love the hand drawn text on this wedding invite, kinda wish we did something like this (YAY Abby).
Modern-twist is a San Francisco/Oakland based company that is bringing art to the table via collaborations with independent artists and designers. A pioneer in the use of food-grade, hand-silk screened silicone, they offer unmatched elegance and innovation in their designs. The surface of each mat is germ-free, non-porous, heat-resistant and perfect for adults and little-ones alike. I am obsessed with the Kyoto series and the entire children's line.
EXTRA PERK: Nurturing the inner artist in every child, the mats are doodle-friendly with the use of washable or dry erase markers—save paper/save trees, just clean off with a damp cloth or rinse. Color again and again - totally brilliant and majorly affordable! Via Design Sponge
