What inspires me !

Everywhere around me in the objects of daily life I find inspiration. I find inspiration in things that have been designed by others before me. I admire the design of advertising in the 1950's. This is a box for miniature birthday cake candles produced in the 1950's in South Africa. I like the colour combination and the rather minimalist design.

AND this,..... well this is GI Joe. An action figure from 1964 produced in the USA, really collectable today.With completely moveable limbs. But his face of so real and naturalistic.

Colours, Colours.... Colours

A set of " Original " Tupperware Ice teas spoons, totally funky and cool design.Love them

Vintage buttons from 1940 with a metal shink in a really naughty pink.
