blogwatch: where we were clicking this week


Craft’s got these adorable printable bunny face cupcake wrappers to turn your mundane carrot cakes into something festive — but you still have to make your own ears.

Over at Instructables, we found this geek-chic, IKEA-hacked R2D2 lamp. Now if it helped us take down the Death Star, that’d be something else!

We’ve featured the salvaged cardboard lamps from Seattle’s Graypants before. This week, Design*Sponge paid their fun and fabulous Capitol Hill live/work space a little visit.

We are busting out the rollers after spying this vintage 1960s Dupont exterior housepaint brochure at RetroRenovation. The period-perfect color schemes are an inspiration we really needed!

DIY pot racks for every small space situation, at Apartment Therapy. We’re particularly keen on the vintage ladder pot rack.

CasaSugar shows us their must haves for April. We are in love with those umbrellas, even if they are a bit steep.

If you haven’t got the time or energy for a big spring clean, Shelterpop’s got 10 ways to freshen your home for Spring right now.

Go collecting with Jonathan Adler and Simon Doonan at the InsideSource. Those two are tastemakers indeed, and collect very interesting stuff, like horological collage, which are made from old watch parts. They also, interestingly enough, collect vintage pieces by Adler himself!

Ever-creative (and freshly home from Paris) Megan over at NotMartha has outdone herself with these breathtakingly cool homemade chocolate kinder eggs. Who knew she was such an authority on chocolate, along with everything else she can do?
