These cut paper constructions by Helen Musselwhite are awesome! I love the whimsical scenes she creates. The colors and style are great too!
See an older post with different work by her here! Also more on her site and Beautiful/Decay.

Okay so this is interesting – the video below captures police in Denmark hugging helmet-less cyclists and giving them helmets. I know it’s probably just a propaganda thing, but do you guys know anything about this? Even if it is a stunt for good press, it’s really cute to see. Good effort!

For more discussion of this little topic, see here.

Of course this is a pr stunt, but it actually happens in Denmark. Last year the Traffic safety council decided to change politics abouts cyclist, and urged the police to hand out helmets and lights (when seeing people drive around in the night without) instead of giving fines. And so they did.
pruittfpgirl -Apr 30, 2009, 4:23PM
Yeah I did see that! I wondered if maybe they were afraid to hug the ladies since they're guys... maybe they thought hugging a random girl would weird her out or something.... Maybe (hopefully) there are lady cops somewhere hugging and passing out helmets to women???

I love these pretty behind-the-scenes shots from Australian Fashion Week! I can’t get the blue eyeliner underneath the middle model’s eyes out of my head! I want to try it, with a number of different colors. I think it might be something I’d have to wear out at night though, not so much of a day look… What do you guys think?

P.S. Do you think the big bun on the bottom model is all her natural hair??

OK nice to see- interesting comments are always helpful!

i have done my makeup exactly like that, with a thick line of colorful liner on my bottom lid a lot. i love it in the summer! you can totally work it in the day too, just make the line thinner and more subtle, even try not extending it all the way into the inner corner of the eye. when night comes, just slab more on! i rely on urban decay 24/7 liners to do the job cuz they dont budge. they actually have a color exactly like the one the model is sporting, it's called "electric".

This editorial from Lula Magazine is so awesome! I love drawings on top of pictures! The drawings are by Jo Ratcliffe, who is pretty awesome all on her own…

I am so inspired by this project Color Me Katie created! She and her boyfriend traced themselves in various positions on black paper, cut them out and taped them up around Brooklyn! Then they waited and photographed people passing by when they matched with the shadows. What fun! Check out her blog here!

I love these beautiful pieces by Zanis Waldheim. I’m always a sucker for colorful art, but these are like geometric color studies times ten! Yves Jeanson has a fabulous set on Flickr featuring nearly 200 of Zanis’ pieces like this. Definitely worth taking a look!

These beautiful paper dresses are from Jum Nakao‘s S/S 05 collection. According to Style Bubble, at the end of the show the models ripped and tore the dresses off, to the shock of the spectators! This after 700 hours of work on the collection. Too much!
Anyhow, I could look at these pictures forever. These dresses are just so intricate and amazing! Be sure to check out Style Bubble’s post where I saw these pictures if you like them – she has more images and a video!

I know we’ve already looked at some animal sculptures today, but these are just so dear! Kyoko Okubo crafts these little figures from washi, a traditional Japanese paper. I can’t believe they are made out of paper! You’ve gotta love the twig antlers too! See many more of Kyoko’s cute creations here.

How big are these pieces? I was wondering perhaps you can create a nature & wildlife decor theme for the home. There are brilliant photographic prints of wildlife in action you can display to create an interior design like that.

oh man, that little dormouse (i think) guy kills me! so cute! and they are all beautiful.

driftwood animals

jansch_horse2.jpg
These gorgeous animals were sculpted using driftwood found on beaches. They are so incredible! I am amazed at how well they flow together- I don’t know how the artist, Heather Jansch, manages to put the wood together so perfectly! Heather has been sculpting for nearly 40 years, and she has tons of other work on her site – it’s worth taking a look at, if only to see all the other animals she has made!

giant dollhouse

benning_dollhouse_det.jpg
Artist Heather Benning created this life-size dollhouse from an abandoned farmhouse in Saskatchewan! One outside wall has been completely replaced with plexiglass to create the dollhouse view. Heather also decorated the house with 60′s furnishings, on account of that is when the house was apparently abandoned. I would love to go and visit this in real life! I would be overcome with the desire to go in though – that is always my problem with regular sized dollhouses – I want to get in somehow!

The Dollhouse is so cute, I found it along the highway this past fall. What an interesting concept and you have to be careful not to miss it as you go along the road as the outside is pretty inconspicuous. It reminded me of my grandma's old countryhouse.
