Quick Picks – Week 5, 2013


Here’s this week’s quick pick of internet finds. They do say that good things come in threes…


Did you know that Etsy has a Wedding Registry Service?
     Via [Hello May].

If I lived closer to Perth I’d definitely be going to see the V&A’s Unveiled – 200 Years of Wedding Glamour Exhibition at the Western Australian Museum. If you are lucky enough to be nearby, it’s on until 24 March 2013.

The Knot Australia has a list of eight alternatives to a traditional guest book.


This week I’ve been captivated by people who make cutting paper into an art form. In particular:

The papercut cityscapes of Chauntelle Trinh and Eckard Buscher .
     Via [Apartment Therapy].

The original papercut illustrations of Sarah Trumbauer.
     Via [My Modern Metropolis].

The pinprick drawings of Melbourne-based artist, Stanislava Pinchuk (Miso).
     Via [Booooooom].

Random Asides

I’ve been inspired by Cheryl Adamson’s Joyful Revolution.

Visit Scotland, Scotland’s National Tourism Organisation, has Shetland pony ambassadors who are helping promote the Year of Natural Scotland.
    Via [My Modern Metropolis].

I had no idea that Muji made cardboard animals until a friend asked me to bring her some back from Japan. They also have cardboard buildings, planes, cars and trains. Who knew cardboard could be so much fun.

Have a great weekend!
