Are we the only family that adores burnt toast…first there’s the smell, and then the taste!!  Yes course all that char is NOT good for one but surely the joy factor supersedes a little carcinogen sin…and anyway most importantly eVERYthing just LOOKS better when burnt.  I know we’ve discussed this before…‘Burning Desires’

I am the proud owner/wearer of Giles Deacons Fall 2012 burnt blouse…you can only imagine the look on my face when I first saw it……sleepless for days.

Rather makes one wish they’d bought the entire collection….

Just start googling burnt things and you’ll find several hours have gone by!

You can ‘chic-it-up’ too, with a little resin or gesso.

Japanese architect Toru Shimokawa of stad has used carbonized cedar in a most sublime of executions…there really is NO end to this line of beauty.
