This is a great before and after – Kathryn worked her magic on an old telephone table that was fit for the dump, using paint for Colortrend and fabric from Ikea.  I think this is better than anything you could buy new – more proof that a little creativity goes a long way 🙂

Sarah over at Paper+Stitch has been making candy sushi – just looking at them is making my teeth ache! (I still want some though :P)

Successful New Zealand artist Roger Griffiths closed his account with his bank, Westpac, by withdrawing his savings of NZ$190,000 – in twenties – when they refused him for a mortgage despite the fact that he had been with them for 25 years and has never missed a loan repayment.  He then deposited the cash in a local community based building society, his point being ‘If you don’t support the community, the community won’t support you.’

Damn straight… I like this guy 🙂 See full details of the story over at Boing Boing.
