mood board for modernism

I'm currently in the process of starting an art project in the school. What i do is entirely me choice and therefore chose modernist architecture. After an introduction I moved on to inspiration. Throughout the week I've been collecting up pictures, despite the fact that not all relate to architecture the pictures come together to make a good mood board.

Cleaning Tip (Taps)

Hi, monday morning is my cleaning day.  
My task of the day was clearing my bath tap ( toooo much lime scale ) 
  it's splashing water every where.  and as it's no longer  unscrewed, I'm finding it not so easy to clean.
I did try a couple different ways of cleaning it but none were very easy .  
I've been watching my daughter make stuff out of balloons this weekend, 
I thought they were quite flexible and tuff.  With a little imagination I found that this is the easiest way to clean taps.
You can just cut  the top off a ballon, and depending on the tap size you can adjust the opening.
Next you just put in the cleaning liquid, I used vinegar (best use a white vinegar). 
 I have used the bleach before it was too strong and it peeled off  the chrome and damaged my taps.

Cake in Jar

I am so hungry! I am on a diet and I keep looking at all these lovely foods.
These cake jars caught my eye,  as they're presented in such a lovely way, it's defiantly an idea I shall copy!! 

coconut whipped cream

How about this a brilliant idea. 
Lovely alternative of daily/ sugar /gluten-free whipped cream.
I love my cream on top of coffee, cakes I would even like with some roast meet and hot indian curry. 
I feel less guilt with this coconut whipped cream.
