Five Fab Friday Finds: Random Finds I love

Balloon photos

This actually a very random and eclectic mix of some of my favorite internet finds this week! The photo above is from Graham Atkins Hughes and I am such a sucker for balloons in photography. It makes me want to do a balloon photo shoot of my own. So vibrant and fun.

Colored wine bottle DIY
I love the simplicity of these shiny and colorful DIY wine bottle centerpieces from the Ruffled Blog. So cheap and easy to make with a big impact.

Cereal box U.S.
Love this U.S. Map made all from cereal boxes by Chris Kaasman. What a neat upcycled project!

Typographic Wall
This wallpaper from Wall and Deco looks 3D, but it’s not. Totally cool, but you know me and my love for type.

Colorful illustration Ellie Cryer’s Use More Felt Pens is so fun to look at and study. It reminds me of work by my friend Silvia!

Hope you enjoyed these Friday finds! I won’t be posting these for the next couple of weeks because of the holidays, but expect a fresh slate of them in the New Year!

Until next time Swellions!
