Touchy! by geraldine kane

Who said concrete has to be boring? Today's pins are from Belfast-based Tactility Factor, who combine textiles and architecture to create beautiful and surprising results.

I know who I'll be calling when I finally get round to my Grand Designs project...


Mini moments by geraldine kane

A very nice lady introduced me to the work of Japanese artist Tatsuya Tanaka today.  A charming little world created using everyday objects. Tanaka manages to create a new scene every single day and posts it to his Instagram calendar.

This kind of Miniature Art is not exactly a new idea (bigappetites), but it gives a little insight into Japanese culture, imagination and daily life.

Check it out, it'll put a wee smile on your wee face!
