I’m finding these knit creations by Sandra Backlund really impressive. They are so visually interesting, complex and unique! I especially love the back of the fourth one, but they are all really gorgeous! Do you guys like them too? Have you ever seen anything like them?

This awesome house, called House C, was designed by Japanese architect Hiroshi Nakamura. I’ve seen a lot of houses built into hills with a sort of hill roof, but I haven’t seen any houses quite like this, with a normal flat roof with a garden/meadow on top. Isn’t it so awesome?! I would love to be that little girl…
These awesome light trees, created by designer Alexander Lervik, are made with a steel frame and tons of plastic fibre. The light source is a projector that lets you make the tree any color you want, and the tree can of course be outside or inside. I want one! I want three! I would put them inside, if i had room, how awesome would that be?!
I am obsessed by Cindy Riccardelli‘s jewelry right now! I love the huge masses of beads and how textured and chunky her work is. As much chunky jewelry is out there these days, I haven’t seen any quite like these – they really make a statement! I love the colors too, especially the first one! Cindy also paints and makes dolls- you can see all of her work, including a lot more jewelry, here on her site!
Can you believe this amazing dress that the girls at Anthro created?! I love it! It appeared in 543 today!
Now we see why it has horses next to it!
So much detail!

This is just amazing! A man in Suffolk UK built this incredible glass house, with a slide-over cover, for he and his wife to retire in… I would love to live here!
Isn’t this tea bag crazy? Korean designer Wonsik Chae came up with this idea for a light in the shape of a tea bag! Each time you dip the bag in and out of the water, like regular tea, it gets darker – or rather, brighter! The bag has florescent chemicals in it that react with the water and glow. Reminds me of those old party glow-sticks!
Ah! I want a book ring by Ana Cardim! So cute, and I’d never forget anything again!
I am obsessed by the graphics on these antique German notgeld, or emergency money. Notgeld was printed by small municipalities and town banks in Germany from WWI through the 1920′s and 30′s. Though it was not legal currency, it was generally accepted, and actually proved useful due to the outrageous inflation in Germany at the time. These scans are all from Flickr user Iliazd, who has an awesome notgeld set with something like 900 different marks in it! If you love sweet graphics or history, or both, be sure to give it a browse.
