Friday Variety: Design Blog Round-Up

I thought I would take a little trip around the web today and see what our design blogger friends have been up to. I’ve gathered a few of the most enjoyable posts for you to peruse over the weekend. Enjoy!

Get a load of this (or maybe not) the “Bird Poop Chandelier” by Wyatt Little. Design Milk reports that Mr. Little found himself the victim of a drive by pooping from a not-so-fine feathered friend.

Kelly recently posted “The eyecandy appeal of micro- and mini-mosaics” which included stunning examples from Terrafirma, Sicis and Picolo. I need one of these to go with my soaking tub above. Take a look at her post…
