Moments of Beauty

A beautiful still life by Sydney-based photographer John Paul Urizar — love how the orange blossoms contrast against the soft grey and silvery tones.

Swedish Beauty

When I first saw the stunning home of Marie Olsson Nylander and her husband Bill, I was overwhelmed with just how lovely it all is — it's such a mix of pieces from all kinds of different countries and eras, and yet it comes together in a beautiful and harmonious whole. So inspiring. You can read a great indepth article (in Swedish) and see more gorgeous photos here, too. Via

Liza of the lovely Small Equals shop writes: "Even though the New York company Cardboardesign is now out of business, I still have four of their amazing heart shaped wish boxes for a special Valentine's treat. Each box comes with a linen pouch filled with colored paper, to write a wish, roll it up and fill the box. How perfect to give as a present to a loved one. You could even fill it with your wishes before you give the gift." Check out Small Equals for other unique and wonderful gift ideas, too!
