I love ‘eye candy’. Such a great phrase.
It’s what I read blogs for.
So it’s a brilliant name for a blog. In it’s native Norwegian language it translates as Sukkertøy for øyet – which I like possibly even better! (just don’t ask me to pronounce it!)
And the blog of this name is pretty brilliant too. Ida Susanne has a fantastic eye for visual candy of all kinds.
I thought I would share the loveliness around.
All of these images are taken from Candy for the Eye – my newest blog crush ♥
It’s always nice to pass candy around and share it with your friends ♥
Although I use mainly vintage fabrics for my makes, I am a true fabric addict and just as likely to sigh longingly over contemporary ranges from time to time.
My new Living Etc for June arrived yesterday and I sat down this morning for a good old browse.
My eyes immediately lighted upon a fold-out promotion.
Normally the recycle bag would be beckoning. I hate those wodges of stapled-in advertising bumf that cause instability in my magazine pile.
But not this time.
The fold-out pages tell of fabric and wallpaper producer Scion’s new products. And my! Those fabrics are really jolly nice!
The company has drawn inspiration from mid-century archive documents and modern Scandinavian design to produce a collection called Melinki that’s right up my street.
I have already sent for samples. I just couldn’t help myself.
