Oh lucky day

September 3, 2010 / By Madame Dent / Make a comment

From the moment I first spotted the Christmas tree above, I have loved the work of Jane Schouten, a Dutch designer who has the sharpest eye ever for vintage trinkets and treasures. She creates artworks and items for the home by cutting, pasting, painting, drawing, sewing and re-purposing found objects and collectables. I pop in to see her blog All the Luck in the World whenever I have a spare moment, which can be terribly dangerous because I also end up scooting all over the www looking at the things she finds wonderful. And then today, she announced that she has a brand new Etsy shop. Oh dearie me, I’m doomed.

We’re feeling a little dented and soggy after the wild wild weather yesterday but are happy to see the sun starting to peep out from behind the rain clouds. Hope the rest of you Perthonalities are ok. Here’s a little extra sunshine in the form of cute artworks to help brighten your day.

Buffet of loveliness

March 20, 2010 / By Madame Dent / Make a comment

I love the name Mollie. I had a wonderful tiny little round auntie called Mollie. I don’t know about this Mollie, the Mollie Greene from South Carolina’s Royal Buffet, but I bet she is wonderful too. How could she not be when she has created this buffet of papery goodness for us?

A little bit dotty

March 12, 2010 / By Madame Mitchell / Make a comment

These sweet spotty ceramics are the handy-work of Dutch artist Nina van de Goor. Created from new and vintage finds, each piece is screenprinted and fired at high temperatures – becoming fit for daily use. I’m sure my tea would taste much better in one of these.

Picture books

March 11, 2010 / By Madame Mitchell / Make a comment

Sheffield lass Su Blackwell knows how to create pictures with words. These miniature dioramas are delicately formed from old books carefully sourced from second-hand bookstores. These sculptures are like pop-up picture books for adults. No touching.

See the light

There should be no hiding these lights under a bushel (and what is a bushel anyway)? So let Mitchell & Dent help you to see the light, these splendid one-of-a-kind upcycled vintage lights, from Canberra’s The Owls are Hunting. Bright sparks.

Tomorrow’s heirlooms

December 7, 2009 / By Madame Mitchell / 1 comment


There is nothing more lovely than a dinner table adorned with fine china and now we can start displaying these delicate homewares on our walls too. Melbourne-based design house Lightly create new treasures from old crockery and vintage glassware. These butterflies are individually cut from upcycled saucers, making each piece different from the next. I know what I will be adding to my Christmas wish list.
