Photographer Kevin Bauman has taken pictures of 100 different abandoned houses and posted them here on the net! I love old abandoned areas, houses and such – they are so interesting and there is something about them that just makes you want to look! See them all here.

paper heart press

I can’t get over the cute customizable kid’s party invitations that Paper Heart Press makes!

I won’t be turning 1 any time again, but I am tempted to get some of these for my next party, even though they’re supposed to be for kids! Too cute & clever! See more here.
Via.

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!

OMG. Can you tell Oanh hello for me? I went to CSULB with her (studying fashion design!) I am the VM at the Anthropologie in Newport Beach CA. I had no idea she worked for the company! What a small world!

barcode revolution

Barcode Revolution creates these specialized barcodes for a number of major Japanese brands. I love them! I have often wondered why we don’t do something creative with barcodes – I hope this idea makes it to the US!
Also, don’t you think one of these would look cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt? Maybe the castle one…

actually, i've seen target do this on a hangtag for their reusable bag program. they have trees "growing" out of the bar code. cleverness for sure.

painted castle

This is Kelburn Castle in Scotland, which in June 2007 was partially painted by the Sao Paolo Crew, who are Brazilian graffiti artists. It looks so cool! I love to see a castle that is over 500 years old covered in some modern graffiti art! And it’s so detailed! What do you guys think?

I spy Os Gemeos at work-- I love the yellow faces they paint. I like this idea but the particular artwork is too cartoony and random for me. Big old castles kind of creep me out-- all the elite intimidation and ostentatious wealth. The street art decor warms my heart. It's like an upgrade against classism.

whoa. unreal.

You may remember a while ago when we first got our pet-camera, and Trixie tried it out for us. The camera clips to your pet’s collar and takes a picture once a minute so that you can see their view of the world! Well, today we had a new photographer try out the pet-cam for us! Meet Pilgrim, the sweet dog of Carrie, our Assistant Art Director.

Pilgrim wore the pet-cam for a while today and showed us the home office from a doggy point of view! His pictures are pretty fun, check them out below!

unique matryoshka dolls

I’m really feeling these Matryoshka dolls by Irina Troitskaya. I’ve always loved Matryoshka dolls, and these ones are so cool and unique! All of her sets have a specific theme – for example, the top set is naturally white animals, another set is called the most popular animals from Russian fairytales. I love it! See more on Booooooom!

jenny Walton -Mar 21, 2009, 11:29PM
These are so beautiful. I especially love the little red flowers along the base of the first set! So adorable. These dolls are so fun to paint yourself as well. They used to sell them at urban and for my groups final in our lab class at Parsons last semester, we bought two sets of them and painted them to represent members of the Brighton Beach Russian community. Here's the link to photos of them for inspiration for others! : ) http://s265.photobucket.com/albums/ii207/jenny2008356/Matryoshka%20dolls/ xoxo

I find these pieces by Do-Ho Suh really interesting! His work mostly deals with questions of individuality and anonymity, or the transience of existence, reportedly inspired by his time in the military. There is something about all the small parts building up a whole in the first two pieces that is really fascinating to me. What do you guys think? See more of Do-Ho’s work on Design Crisis.

I've always loved his work, just beautiful! ~F

I am loving Erica Somogyi‘s paintings lately! I saw some of them on My Love for You, and since then I have been on her site looking at everything! I love the colors and the dreaminess!
Coincidentally, Erica’s work has been making the rounds lately, and on this Friday night at 7pm you can see her work at Space 1026 here in Philly! For those interested…

Ever heard of The Sketchbook Project? It’s awesome! Something like 2,000 people from around the country signed up, and were sent a blank Moleskine sketchbook. The only instructions were to send the books back by Feb 15th, and fill them with “everyone we know.” Art House, which is a group dedicated to bringing art to the masses, is responsible for the creation and managing of the project. I think that is so cool! I only wish I would have known in time to participate! But maybe next time?
For now, the books that Art House got back are going on tour, and tonight they stop in Philadelphia! Head over to Chris’ Jazz Cafe at 1421 Sansom Street tonight for a chance to flip through all the books. The books will be making the rounds at a bunch of other cities as well; click here to see a list of all the places and dates! Below find just a few pages of the many many books – click here to see a gallery of the submissions!
