And I am always a sucker for a puppet too, especially an animatronic one.
You can see some of the sculptures in motion on their website, they are quite lovely. Look at that moon being fed spoons of sugar, ahh.
They also have a shop where you can buy their works.

In Pieces by artist Marion Fayolle. It is a series of comics that animate wonderful interactions between animals, vegetables and minerals.
After conducting some internet research I have found a world of her work and its fantastic.
I also found a link to a range of fabric designs she collaborated with Cotelac
I now have a complete clothing wish list for Summer. My love of loud patterns and illustration combined.

I have written about Kate Berry and her photography before but I just have to say the baking and cooking side of her is pretty terrific as well.
She has a new website called Lunch lady and as always her photographs are gorgeous but so are the recipes.
I have made her Rhubarb cake once to take to a friends house and it was delicious.
Anyhow, I have always had a fear of bread making. My mother was extremely handy and good at most things. She could upholster a chair, make a quilt, build a table, sew a ball dress, grow a garden, write a thesis in French, raise four children and was a truly excellent, intuitive cook. She did however make the most god awful bread. I always figured if she couldn't do it it must be very difficult.
My best friend and I were talking about it recently and she said I should give it a try. So today we followed Kate Berry's bagel making instructions and made honestly the best bagel I have ever tasted. You should have a go it is really fun.

Continuing my predilection for folk music, we have been listening to Angel Olsen on high rotation in our home at the moment. Have a listen she has a gorgeous voice. Asap Rocky is also getting a good look in to although the two couldn't be more different, or could they?

If you have some time on your hands and some children as well I highly recommend going to the NGV . We went with four children aged from one to five the other day and had an absolutely wonderful time. The new Romance was Born children's installation is just terrific I highly recommend a trip.
