Famous characters as pegs

One of the many chores we railed against as kids was the degrading task of helping to put the washing out.

Passing the pegs to our cruel mothers left us with an uncontrollable feeling of rage and discontentment. Okay, so maybe we're exaggerating. Anyway, moral of the story, for most of our lives we have hated pegs and everything they stand for.

Trying her damn hardest to change our stubborn minds, Scottish designer Jen Milne has transformed boring pegs into a collection of our favourite characters. There's the Ghostbusters (image 1 above), Matt Smith's Doctor Who (image 2 above), Joan and Roger from Mad Men (image 3 above) and then the rest are all titled below.

Mum, we're sorry.

Ziggy Stardust
