Murtoli

I'm ready for my summer vacation! I'm off to Italy later in the summer, but this huge resort in Corsica that spans several acres is looking very appealing right about now.  Beach side villas, infinity pools, an outdoor restaurant and another that is enclosed by a cave.  Murtoli is nestled on a hillside over looking the Tyrrhenian Sea and looks like perfection!  I think I'll pack my bags now...sigh....

Mister Finch's Adventures

Fairy tales made from textile - this is the world of whimsical curiosities that are measured, cut and sewn from vintage fabrics, old stained aprons, dusty curtains and trims.  Realistically and  ingenuously conceptualized, Mister Finch's objects inspired by nature are mysterious and a bit creepy.  His creatures tell a story, they evoke wonderment and inspire the collector. Mister Finch resides in Yorkshire and with no formal training his works of art sell out on Etsy very quickly.  Welcome to Mister Finch's adventures...
