Loraine's precious pieces Lorainne_utentils_2 
When irene asked me about the favorite things i (= Loraine) have and how they fit into the concept of "my own private museum" i thought yes , people are doing that just as they're creating their own worlds with blogs which also means that those collections aren't about expensive objects for most people, but the things they do collect are cherished very much !
I love to collect lots of things , the ones i'm most into at the moment are kitchen tools and pots & pans and i've just started to collect textiles The little milk pan is by Serafinozani, The Trivet i bought at Dekkorate,  the spoon i bought at mora, the very practical slicer is from MUJI , the pasta spoon is/was by alessi called twergi and i could only find a link to other spoons from the same series. {It's a wonderful thing that Irene want's to give the things we collect a context !}

Danielle's favorite pieces in her houseDanielle_paperandthread_2
The first image shows some of my vintage linen tea-towels. I (=Danielle) love the beautiful patterns and bold colours as well as their sense of history - they brighten up my kitchen and make me smile whenever I see them! I often find awesome vintage tea-towels on ebay, can also be worth checking out op shops. The second image shows a number of my favourite things in my lounge room. The framed print is by ah-yi - I love her delicate gocco prints and the organic shapes and patterns in her designs. I made the cushion from some of Lara Cameron's beautiful Birch Forest fabric in mustard. Lara's work is so inspiring and I particularly love this striking design, printed in one of my favourite colours. Fabric can be purchased from her online shop   You can also see the top of an ottoman I made using Amy Butler's Gum Drop Pillow pattern. The bold fabric is from Ikea, designed by Linda Svensson. I love surrounding myself with objects made using textiles/patterns that strike a chord with me...

{ps. Danielle just told me that she has a great new fabric design, called Citrus, available in her shop}

Finally I'm going to show you some true and original artists from Kuala Lumpur ... a little while ago i visited a great cupcakes shop here in KL ...truly an amazing little treasure run by a group of 5 very talented graphic designers with a passion for cookies and cupcakes ...the name WonderMilk
At Wondermilk they don't only serve some amazing cupcakes (click here for some of their artisic cupcakes) but they also sell a whole range of handmade goods ... very original items for your wall, jewelry, t-shirts, handmade clothing,  journals and paper goodies ... it's just so much fun going there for a cup of coffee, eat one of their delicious cupcakes and go throuh all their goodies ...here you can find the contact details (not easy to find I must admit, a taxi would be a very wise idea)
... and i bought this great set of five journals, each illustrated by a member of the group  and this lovely fish necklace ... click here to see many more images I took while I was visiting WonderMilk in Kuala Lumpur.
