Japanese artist Chika Usui has a thing for scarecrows. So much so that she decided to only feature them as the main theme of not one but two photographical projects, in which she also poses.
Arranging the scarecrows in life-like positions and sitting or interacting with them, Chika’s photos could almost look like candid family portraits… only with stuffed puppets instead of real human beings. The result is both cute and disturbing, but definitely worth a look!
Men, beware! You might be replaced by this happy woolly boyfriend if you are not careful enough! Single women looking for the perfect match, this might be your lucky day.
My Knitted Boyfriend is a huggable cushion made for lonely nights. He is forever smiling and will never leave you. What more can you ask for?

Touchka Fashion Tales was founded by Jenny Lumelsky and Tomer Ronen out of their love for storytelling. Their intention was to create timeless pieces, between illustration and fashion, for elegant women.
What to say except that these gorgeous scarves are definitely on top of my wishlist. All of them of course.

Australian artist Thomas C. Chung hand stitched 88 full-sized succulents for an installation called “A Promise Made, Is A Promise Kept” in 2013 at Bloom Art Space in Shanghai. 88 is a symbol of good fortune in Chinese culture, with the artwork speaking about growth and patience for change in the global climate (which he probably needed to hand-stitch them all!), as seen from a child’s point of view.
I love plants but since I have a tendency to kill them all (too much love?), perhaps it would be a good idea to invest in one of these cuties? (via Frankie Magazine)
Nathalie Lété is a French artist who creates wonderful illustrations mixing her imagination as well as some real influence from childhood and France in general. Not only does she sell regular prints and silk prints, she also makes hanging toys, cushion covers and… rugs!! Look at these:
Cat or steak? I must admit I love them both. But if you would rather have a cute owl, some simple but beautiful flowers and even a colorful mushroom, you can find them all on her e-shop.
