Internet Scrapbook #12

Happy Friday, people! Hope you've survived the heatwave. This weekend, I'll be knocking around the hood, taking a few more snaps for the Secret Brighton book, coming soon! In
the meantime, here are a few wonderful finds from around the web, from a tiny abandoned wedding chapel and a cool Californian patio to the lady in Japan obsessed with strawberries... have a good one. 

Gaudi's house, Casa Vicens, opens to the public in October

Built between 1883 and 1885, Casa Vicens is the very first home designed by Catalan architect Antoni Gaudí. During most of the Barcelona home’s 130-year-old history it served as a private residence, but thanks to a 2014 purchase by a bank in Andorra and a massive two-year renovation, the 19th-century building will reopen as a cultural centre this October.

Miniature hand soaps! 

Marie Gardeski and David Birkey of Imaginary Animal have created a set of miniature novelty hand-shaped soaps that come in different colours and styles – they're so tiny, eight of them literally fit in the palm of your hand.
