Yofukashi Drawer

Yokufashi Drawer is the brand name for this charming line of ceramic brooches.  The brand name refers to a drawer that is full of finished products after working late at night. The brooch is made by pressing a handmade eraser stamp into clay.  The silhouette of flowers are then painted giving the piece an old world quality.  

You can follow this brand on Instagram.  Their shop is located on Japanese sites, Minne and Creema.

String Art

Found this awesome threaded stars hanging decor on the German blog, 180 Grad Salon.  The author gives you tips on hotels, restaurants, shopping, hiking and other experiences on the beautiful island of Mallorca.  Her gorgeous photographs make me want to visit.  She also has a few DIY projects in her blog that includes complete instructions. Thought we would work on this project and perhaps advance to making mandalas and parabolic designs also pictured above.

180 Grad Salon can be found here, Facebook and Instagram. Full instructions for the hanging decor is here.
