TGIF: corks and cages

Following up on the fairy furniture post, more cork and cage inspiration.

DWR invited creative folk to "create an original miniature chair using only the foil, label, cage and cork from no more than two Champagne bottles."  These are the winners.

Ingenious.

I am also really liking these cork canisters which were created by Brittni over at Paper n Stitch (a lovely and inspiring blog) and recently featured on Design Sponge. They are made from cork sheeting and repurposed tin cans.  In Toronto, I have found cork sheeting at Staples by the roll

Aren't these canisters lovely?

Finally, thinking ahead to our summer trip to Scandanavia, these Norway cork trolls
