Folksy Friday #24

I wish I could hibernate...

I don't know about you, but these dark mornings are making it harder and harder for me to get up for work.  My duvet becomes my cocoon as I bury my head, I fall into the deepest of sleeps 5 minutes before the alarm is due to go off and I wish I could just stay there, safe, warm, cosy... I've hit 'snooze' 3 times now, I can hear the wind outside, the street lights are still on, the early morning traffic is coming to life...

I wish it was Saturday

....and if it was?  Id be wide awake and unable to lie in....ughhhhh

Plastic Fantastic

Just wishing to share with you the wonderful work of artist/designer Gulnur Ozdaglar.  Since 2008 she has been producing cups, jewellery and home decoration accessories by recycling PET bottlesShe collects, heats, cuts, melts, drill holes into and reshapes PET bottles.  She thinks that the real solution is “upcycling” rather than plain recycling.  Check out her website for more inspirational work!
