The weekend is here and I feel like channelling my inner kitsch, it’s been a while and it’s lots of fun! This picture will definitely add some colour to a cold, grey Friday.
Happy weekend x
I’m a huge music lover and tonight there’s annual music event that I love to watch – The Brits. Not only do I love the awards show itself, but I love the awards themselves. They are iconic and for the past four years they have been designed by some of Britain’s most famous designers. This year is no different, with the statue designed by Tracey Emin. The design is beautifully elegant, yet strong, featuring a rosette or ‘wings’ and also Tracey’s trademark handwritten message.
The previous years awards have been designed by Dame Vivienne Westwood in 2011, Peter Blake in 2012, Damien Hirst in 2013 and Philip Treacy in 2014.
As you can see each award is as wonderfully unique and as individual as the designer who created them. I can’t wait to see what next year’s design will be.
It’s been a while since I’ve done a Folksy Finds post, so to cheer up a chilly Monday, I’ve dedicated this Folksy Finds to things that make me smile. All designed and hand crafted by our lovely British artists and designers over at Folksy.

This week on Danni Saw This it’s all about my inspirations, and where I get my ideas for blogging or designing from.
On Monday I shared with you two of my current colour inspirations, Copper and Blue. Today I’d like to share a few of my favourite Instagrammers whom I find inspiring and push me, without them realising, to take better photos or write better blog posts. Here are just 4 of them…
The Boy Who Bakes
Edd is a baker, food writer and a fellow Yorkshireman (from my city of Leeds to be exact!) who takes mesmerising photographs of food, that makes me wish I was a better baker and a better food photographer.
Candy Pop is a lifestyle blog documenting everyday adventures of Natasha. Her photos are bright, quirky and colourful, which empowers me not to be afraid to capture the more unusual musings of everyday life.
This is Jules
Jules is another fellow Yorkshirewoman capturing life in both Yorkshire and Wales in truly wonderful ways. You’ll also find photos of her budgie Frankie on her feed too, the’ll definitely put a smile on your face. Seeing Jules’ photos of Yorkshire inspire me to go out and photograph it more candidly.
Little Big Bell
Little Big Bell is a specially curated design and lifestyle blog by Geraldine Tan. Her photos document her colourful treasures and eye for interior design. After looking at Little Big Bell’s photos I push myself to take better homeware shots and to make use of the surroundings within my home to display my treasures.
I follow many great artists, designers, bloggers and fun folk over on Instagram, I’m just sorry I can’t show you them all on here! To see who else I follow and find inspiring have a look over on my Instagram page here
I’ve been wanting to share these copper and blue colours for a while now, so I thought why not now? It will brighten up your Monday and hopefully ignite inspiration, like it did for me.
This colour combination post was sparked by the wonderful copper pot with the blue embroidery at the top. I’ve never thought of fusing these two colours together, but when I saw this photo, I knew I had to do a Love Colour post, especially as I have a huge copper crush at the moment!
