A fascinating look inside artist Meghan Boody's surreal New York loft. One of Boody's secret rooms is reminiscent of Alice's adventures in Wonderland with it's shrunken scale and doll-like decor. Ever since I saw this image on one of the blogs that I follow, Six Impossible Things (http://six-before-breakfast.blogspot.com/), I've been so inspired by this miniature hideaway and determined to create my own little "Wonderland" room complete with a four-foot door. I hope to fill it with curious objects and a little bed where I can feast my eyes and escape the real world whenever I grow tried of it.

A little girlish squeal escaped my mouth when I first laid eyes on Japanese stationery brand San-X's Palette's Sweet Street collection. It's feminine opulent and delectable sweetness sugared up with baby pink and pastel colors and delicate, miniature renditions of pastries and pretty paraphernalia make it almost too sweet to stomach. An aficionado of the rich decadence of the patisserie and all things frivolous and adorable, I had at long last found a stationery theme that spoke to my loves and indulged my senses.
