Today's post is inspired by the Gorman x Castle collaboration and the artwork of the talented Castle.
After purchasing a Castle pillowcase from The Design Files Open House as blogged in this post, I became smitten with Rachel Castle's work, her latest being a collaboration with Lisa Gorman that has resulted in this super ace pillow case below:

However, truth be told that I am trying to stick to buying things I need. And while I'd love to see if I can get Castle to customise a U-shape pillowcase in that fabulous print, I don't need another regular-shape pillowcase at this stage :(
Something that I did need was an artwork to fill in the empty space over my bed. So imagine my delight when I came across Castle's range of artworks :)

I scrolled through Castle's site for some time trying to find the artwork that was 'me'...
Then I remembered my 'funeral song'. It's the fun song I'd like played at my funeral, assuming that I die an old 80+ year old lady, warm in my bed....
So I realise that this hasn't been highlighted enough here just yet, but I have a thing for pipe cleaners. I thought it'd be real me to put the chorus of my funeral song in pipe cleaners, check out the first draft:

Happy New Year! Here's to each of us making our plans and dreams for 2012 come true!
