We're excited today to share a DIY project from Christine Schmidt of Yellow Owl Workshop's newest book, Make It Yours, Patterns and inspiration to stamp, stencil and customize your stuff. Once again, Christine makes all our DIY dreams come true with a stunning collection of projects that are inspiring and fresh. From creating the most adorable stamped clay ornaments to turning an old dresser into an eye-catching art deco showpiece, Christine shows readers how to create gorgeous projects using unexpected materials. To launch the book which is on sale today we're sharing the art deco dresser project which is one of our favourites from the book. Check it out below!
Earlier last month we happened upon this triangle display shelf via Instagram from Moorea Seal in Seattle and were inspired that it was handmade. Ashley Miller (who works there) created it as a display shelf for the shop and so we asked these two ladies if they would be interested in sharing how it was made as a DIY for Poppytalk. And we were thrilled they agreed!
The result is a stunning shelf perfect for not only retail, but at home too. Also, be sure to check out both Moorea Seal online and Ashley's Etsy shop, Charcoal and Ash. All equally impressive - more of their contact info below!
Anyone familiar with the work of Mini Moderns will not be surprised to discover that they’ve held a lifelong appreciation of Pop Art. Perhaps more surprising is how their fascination with this movement took root. Because, from an early age – long before they’d developed an interest in consumer culture and all things graphic – Mark and Keith both used to love reading the romantic comic strips in their older sisters’ magazines.

Continuing with our series, Dispatch from Canada, today we're excited to feature the work of West Vancouver-based architecture firm, Burgers Architecture Inc. Being fans of their work for a while now, we were thrilled to ask them a few questions about their firm and thoughts on design in the Canadian landscape. Here's our Q & A (as answered by Mary Burgers):
We spotted this quaint flat near Norrmälarstrand (central Stockholm) this week on Swedish real estate site Fantastic Frank. The original hardwood parquay floors, mullioned windows and paneled doors have been preserved during its' recent renovation.
Earlier this year we were a little sad to hear the news that Ideas Magazine was closing it's doors and so when we heard wind that the South African DIY magazine had started up again, we were thrilled! The people involved with the magazine got together, dried their tears, and launched a crowd funder through Thundafund, set up home offices and are back! With the same people behind the helm, same paper, and same content, their return issue is a delightful treat of all things you've come to know and love from Ideas Magazine. Let's take a sneak peek!

A few years back we posted this downloadable Spring Floral Desktop Wallpaper photographed and generously shared by the talented Jodi McKee for the first day of spring. And although it was actually five years ago, it seems the photo is still so relevant if not even more so today. So to kick off the season of spring today, we thought we'd re-post it, with links to download it again. Click here for all the different sizes for whatever size your screen is. Happy Spring!
Here's a throwback recipe perfect for St. Patrick's Day. We loved this chocolate cookie recipe and vanilla ice cream combo that we posted last year, and the lucky charms add a fun Irish twist. Colour the ice cream green (or blue - as seen here), and you'll be ready to party with the best of them! Check out the recipe below.
It's been a while since we did a post on Etsy Finds for the home, and we couldn't help notice all the fun things being made there as of late through our good ol' Etsy Page (do you visit those pages anymore)? We almost forgot about them. As well, from following Etsy on Instagram. Lots of good finds to be had. Here's just a few that have caught our eye. By the way, do you miss the Etsy Treasury as much as we do?
About this time of year we really get the craving for some fresh plants or flowers in our space. Spring is almost upon us and with blossoms starting to bud, it's always nice to bring some green inside. What has been on our radar as of late are clear vessels. Although not new, we've been seeing this trend transforming for a few years now, from rooting plants in water, revealing roots in soil, and the old favourite of sprouting bulbs, we're still loving this botanical look that only seems to be getting more clearer through the years. Lately we've been seeing thought, different shaped glass vessels to hold them. Let's take a look
