Embellished -- Oscars 2016

I have to say I was a bit underwhelmed by this years collection of Ocsar frocks, in terms of their embellishments but here are the ones worthy of a mention ...

1. Cate Blanchett :: I wasn't sure about the overall dress but the floral embellishments were interesting
2. Brie Larson :: it's all about the beaded belt on this dress
3. Kevin Hart :: when a bloke with an embellished tux makes my montage ...
4. Jennifer Garner :: she always has great dresses, the hint of beadwork is beautiful on this dress
5. Alicia Vikander :: she has the Oscar, she has Michael Fassbender so it really annoys me that she also picked a lovely embellished dress too. PS her Mum's dress is beautiful too.
6. Saoirse Ronan :: emerald green sequin, by the way did anyone else thing this was a more sparkly version of Kiera's dress in Atonment?
7. Maria Menounos :: beaded shell patterns on this dress
8. Julianne Moore :: a little beaded detail goes a long way
9. Naomi Watts :: the embellished detail on this dress is mermaid like

Elephants -- Planters

I love having house plants around and do my best not to kill them! Most of mine are in plain white ceramic pots, but I may sneak one of these elephant planters into my collection after spotting these on Pinterest.

1. The colour of this planter is just beautiful, it would look great with a plant with pink flowers.
2. This is such simple form giving the merest hint of elephant.
3. This one looks a bit like a plastic toy, not my colour but it does draw the eye.
4. I love the trunk forming the third leg of this pot and the cute smile on its face.
5. This terracotta planter nestles nicely into its surrounding and looks great against green foliage.
6. These colours just pop and the orange in particular contrasts so well with the succulent.
7. A similar design but a subtler colour than the previous picture, the sheen of the blue gives it a mystical appearance.
8. The patterns on this planter highlight the key features of its form.
9. An unusual head only wall planter deadline, the pink plant contracts beautifully with the shade of the planter.
