This is so incredible, right?! I’ve seen a lot of really spectacular light shows, but this one really strikes me because the lights are all in such natural shapes! Lights made to look like flowers and peacocks? Awesome!
The display is at Bellevue Botanical Gardens in Bellevue, Washington. If you live near there, please go check it out for me! The great pictures were taken by Lecia of A Day That is Dessert, where you can see a bunch more pictures of the display!

I grew up in that city and still live really close - the Botanical Gardens are a real Christmas tradition around here! They even have hot cocoa and hot cider to drink as you stroll through the park :)

garland light

Tord Boontje is the creator of this delicate light, called the Garland Light. I’ve seen (and really liked) some of his work before, but this is just so eye-catching and natural-looking, I can’t get over it!

Thanks to this video, I want some LED lights for my bike so bad! I also wish I were able to do tricks like the guys in the video, but for now, just the lights would be cool with me!

It’s beginning to look a lot more like the holiday season here at the Home Office!

These awesome yarn trees appeared in Building 543 yesterday! They are a lot more tall than the photos suggest!

They are each a bit different from one another.
Santa has decided to keep one of his spare sleighs at Building 543 – an excellent sleigh-garage.
Here we have our friend Luren enjoying her lunch beside the goldfish pond.
Walking a little farther, we come to my favorite take on the yarn trees – a yarn tree dress! Wouldn’t that be fun to wear?!

chandelier of excess

This chandelier is intense, right? But so lavish! Designed by Erickson Beamon, the Glam Rock Chandelier costs $32,500! Out of my price range for sure, but it is definitely cool to look at! Read more about it here, on Yatzer.

This is the Rain Man Decanter by Matilda Sunden Ringner, and it is pretty darn cool. If I had one of these, I think I would be constantly looking for stuff that needed poured or watered, just so I could watch it…

coloring wallpaper

This looks like so much fun! This wallpaper is perfect for those of us who are tempted to write and draw all over our walls, or who have children prone to do the same. It was created by Jon Burgerman, and can be bought from this store in the UK.
See some other cool wallpapers we’ve come across in our internet travels here, here, and here!
I saw this coloring wallpaper on Freshome.

to each his home

We are loving this new book by friend of Free People, Bilyana Dimitrova called To Each His Home. The book highlights eight really imaginative homes with beautiful photographs by Bilyana. Above are some sneak peak images of the book. You can see more on the website. Wouldn’t you love to live in one of these?
She has also set up a flickr group where you can share photos of your own creative home! Check out the info here.
How cute is her announcement with the handwritten note?

I love these cute little mushroom stumps made by Small Stump. They are like mini-worlds to escape into! I want to be a tiny person that sits on the mushrooms…
