Here’s to the last few days of #summer! Get inspired by this poster illustration for “Joy is the Only Treat” from Hannover Germany.
Step Inside London’s Felt Cornershop
Look closely at a corner shop in East London and you’ll see everything is not as it seems. The Cornershop, opened in a derelict store in Bethnal Green by artist Lucy Sparrow (@sewyoursoul), is actually an art installation which consists of 4,000 items all handmade from felt! From Heinz Baked Beans to Digestive Biscuits, everything in the shop is hand-stitched and the whole shop took Lucy eight months to assemble.
“I wanted to create something that surrounded people completely,” says Lucy, whose first job was in her local corner shop. “I hope this project reminds people just how much the cornershop cements life in local communities.” The installation runs until August 31.

This makes me both happy and sad all at the same time. Wondering whether this constitutes a day off and a marathon..?
Getting dizzy thinking about new decor and designs for my London abode; last day in the pool isn’t going to be a productive one!
