for the love of up-cycling

my favourite thing to do, at the mo, is Pinterest ... loving all the ideas and inspiration ... there is so much information out there and the last thing I want to do is to repeat, repeat, repeat but then again these are my favourite recycling ideas,  recycled materials and up-cycling DIY.
This blog and Pinterest is my Internet Diary - my ID - its what I identify with and so cool that it can be shared!
I am so loving PALLET's ... just wished they were more accessible.  These are my favourite up-cycling or re-cycling projects.  Each photo links back to Pinterest were you can check their original origin on the net ...

beautiful ceramics

Award winning japanese designer Katsumi Machimura started off as a jewelry designer in the 1960s, and didn't dig his hands into clay until years later. His stunning ceramic work has both elegance and roughness - proper gems in themselves! Katsumi Machimura also love gardening, and share his passion for nature in his garden blog. I borrowed this post from Lisbeth from Wabi Sabi Style who borrowed these pictures of his ceramic work and natural photos from Atelier Katsumi here.
