Oh Baby Baby...

Seriously, look at these faces. I love these precious animal baby prints. There are so many more...Sp sweet. http://www.theanimalprintshop.com/


Go Figurine?

These figurines are so cute and disturbing at the same time. They were created by Debra Broz using found figures and changing them into these weird wonders. She began training as a china restorer when she got the idea. I found them featured in the www.impossiblemag.com. Enjoy.



I'm Forever Blowing Bubbles

Let me just say I love bubbles. I am fascinated with them and find it so exhilarating and fun. It instantly makes you feel like a kid again but with the ability to appreciate the beauty. Check these out, I took them looking into the sky with my trusty Hipstamatic. Enjoy.


Oh say can you see...

Oh say can you see...Erin Wasson, photographed by Fred Meylan and styled by Anne-Marie Broulliet, for Elle France June 2011. May everyone sparkle today on the 4th of July and have a lovely day.


Lead to Greatness

I couldn't believe my eyes...these amazing pencils were transformed by Brazilian born carpenter Dalton Ghetti. He creates these miniature masterpieces on the tips of pencils, can you believe it? He works as a carpenter, and has been making his tiny graphite works for about 25 years starting his craft in grade school. He uses sewing needles, blades and special carving knives to transform these works of art. There is so much time and patience in each of these, the alphabet too 2.5 years to complete. Mind blowing.


Me & The Bee at the Flea

Last Saturday was the pittsburgh Flea and my first attempt at selling my second-hand treasures in this type of venue. It was a good time and the rain stayed away. Thanks for all who attended and who were inspired to buy things.


To Flea or not to Flea

This saturday is the Pittsburgh Flea and I am going to give it a go. I pulled ideas for how i would like my table to look, but its going to be trial and error. I have hang tags, packaging (brown bags that i stamped my logo on), chalkboard signage, vintage crates and hardware boxes from my 78 year old neighbor. I'm making scarf pillows, greeting cards and pulling together years and years of hunting and gathering lovely things. I hope it is a success. http://pittsburghflea.com/

A Good Attitude...

Chocolates with attitude...Denmark-based Bessermachen DesignStudio plus Henrik Konnerup equals heaven. The chocolates were produced by Konnerup, 12,000 pieces of artisanal chocolates were each handmade and individually wrapped. Flavors range from chocolate with lavender to dark chocolate with curry and pistachio. For all 12,000 pieces, 12 different designs were created. Each box reflecting the identify of the chocolate. Chocolates with Attitude is being hailed as a collector’s item. I want some now!


Pretty Plastic Wrap

Wow, Wigs made from plastic wrap, give leftovers a whole new meaning. They were originally designed for a Tiffanys & Co. window display by Kate Cusack, then re-used in this photoshoot by Kristiina Wilson. One year for Halloween, I embellished a wig with plastic wrap to be the Snow Miser, these put that to shame. These are so weird and cool I cant stop looking at them. Enjoy.


Flora & Fauna

Beauty and sadness. These are a series of iron sculptures representing animals that have been endangered due to iron extraction in Brazil, which is apparently one of the biggest producers of iron ore. Each sculpture is the exact size and the weight of the real animal. Check out Marco Ugolini for more of his work. www.jesuismonreve.org and http://vimeo.com/17406761


Painted Ladies...

I love this ELLE editorial from 1967. It was illustrated by the amazing Antonio Lopez. In the early 1960s, Lopez began to free-lance for fashion magazines such as Vogue, Harper’s Bazaar, Elle, and Andy Warhol’s Interview. I saw this on Trendland. Check it out for more pics of his work. Gotta love the 60s.


Singing in the Rain...

Okay, last week I was convincing myself that the rain was good for making everything so green and beautiful, but this week, I am officially over it. According the onion, the rain that was told to go away is back! So, i decided to do a tribute to it and found these awesome sculptures made from umbrellas. The first was in London. The next three were made from broken umbrellas by Jean Shin. The last one was in Vegas. Enjoy
