Artificial fur trees make your Christmas beautiful
I don’t know exactly how many thousands and millions of fur trees will be cut for our favorite holiday – Christmas, the tradition is still alive, unhappily in my country too… I think it is absolutely irresponsible and and even cruel to cut down such beautiful trees to use them for some days and then – to throw out. Your holidays can be unforgettable and special if you use your creativity, talents of a decorator and a designer. If you don’t have much time on your hands to decorate you could buy an artificial fur tree. All you need – to match the design theme of your home. Now, not only will you have home decor that’s easy on the budget, you’ll also have a hassle-free time decorating your home. These colorful artificial trees also make unique decorations for Halloween, Valentine’s Day, and other non-Christmas occasions. No matter what day of the year you use them, your celebrations are sure to stand out with an artificial Christmas tree

Tucson artist Nick Georgiou is the author of these cool paper sculptures. According to the artist, “the death of the printed word/world, economic collapse, political and environmental uncertainty inspired him. No matter how nice the smell of old books is, their weight and the fact that trees go down to make paper are huge disadvantages. Nowadays, e-book readers offer enough storage for entire libraries which would be impossible to carry while traveling.

Milk Bottle Engravings by Charlotte Hughes-Martin
British artist Charlotte Hughes-Martin, resident of Stourbridge, West Midlands (UK) buys bottles at a local shop and makes beautiful engravings inside of them. According to Charlotte Hughes-Martin, reaction to this milk bottle project has come as a bit of a shock to her. She has been engraving milk bottles with various different images and leaving them on random doorsteps. The artist says, that she likes the idea of finding Art in unusual places.
“It’s happened to me a few times, and when I get to see these special sights it makes me feel privileged. Like trusted with a really excellent secret, or chosen for something exciting that most people don’t grasp. Wish others felt the same way. Any person who notices this bottle – the milkman, or the dairy worker, or the “chav” walking past and seeing an empty milk bottle that they want to steal! In particular, I like the idea of making people do a double take when they notice something new”.
