this pinboard by ashley goldberg reminded me of this super duper book which i bought back in the days when i had money to spend on books! it's a collection of russian folk artifacts and is full of ingenious inventions 'made by ordinary russians inspired by the lack of immediate access to manufactured goods during the collapse of the soviet union'.

i do love cobbling things together. the make do and mend approach is so good, & in these days of global financial meltdown and environmental doom, it's the future. spotted some plastic-drink-bottle mud guards on our neighbour's push bike the other day, fair cheered my soul! 

anyway, without further ado, here are a couple of images from the book. a home for a queen bee...
and a tv aerial...
