sharpie marker decor

Charlie Kratzer started drawing on his basement walls right in the middle, with a drawing of a painting by Picasso. From there he figured it wouldn’t be too hard to extend the drawings out to the edge of the walls – one thing lead to another, until he had decorated all of his basement walls with his drawings, using 10 dollars worth of Sharpie markers!

Why don’t people do more things like this? I love it! Artist Posterchild turned this abandoned newspaper box into a planter, with the help of a couple pieces of wood! There are so many empty newspaper boxes around Philly – I think we need some flowers for them! Click here for better pictures.

This crazy concrete, called Solid Poetry and designed by Frederik Molenschot and Susanne Happle, shows a pretty design whenever it gets wet, only to have it disappear again once the concrete is dry! I love it! I wish all sidewalks were made with this concrete!

cross stitch clock!

thrifted-embroidered%2Bclock%2Beagle.jpg
This clock is so awesome! Doe-C-Doe found it when she was thrift shopping for only $5! This is such an inspirational find – it occurs to me how easy it would be to make your own cross stitch clock! I have seen all sizes of clock fixtures at the craft shop for very cheap! It seems like it would be really fun to create your own cross stitch backing with numbers and decoration, and then attach the fixture for the hands!

These lovely lights are by Bodo Sperlein. I love the soft shapes! No doubt they are far and away out of my price range, but a girl can dream!

by the light of the gourd

I love these pretty and original light shades made by StudioTempera! They are gourds! StudioTempera, which is based in Turkey, hollows them out, decorates them, and then pokes little holes in them to be filled with beads for colored light, or nothing for normal light! They are so beautiful!

You may recall when I posted this and other pieces by Cassandra Rhodin a while back…
To my delight, she recently did some pillowcases for H&M Home, and they look so awesome!

Boy I would love to have a set! They’re so pretty!

I love this awesome idea for a deer head decoration from doe-c-doe! She used the pattern from a vintage transfer (the middle picture) and embroidered the deer’s features onto the fabric, then backed it with 1/2″ foam core. Doesn’t it look awesome?!
Be sure to check out doe-c-doe, it’s good!

textured leather

I’ve been really into wall coverings that are more textured lately, so of course I love these sweet leather panels by Genevieve Bennett. Aren’t they pretty? I would feel tempted to rub my hands over it all the time if I got one. More on Genevieve’s site.
