This quick little video makes me so happy! It’s nice to think about plants growing and living, since winter is starting to bear down on us! I love watching the little roots grow…

I love these photos by Rune Guneriussen – I can’t stop looking at them! The phones look like they are watching for phone predators… And the first picture is so perfect for wintertime, the lamps look so cozy and cute in the dark of winter!
See more pictures here on Livejournal, and even more on Rune’s site!

This is actually part of an advertising campaign for HSBC Bank! Their ad company had an aerial photo of city skyscrapers attached to the bottom of this pool, in attempt to raise global warming awareness. I just love the idea! It makes me wonder what other pictures would look really cool at the bottom of a pool!
Find a tiny bit more info here.

foodscapes

Check out these awesome landscapes, made and photographed by artist Carl Warner! They are created entirely with food!

The castle is made of cheese, and the wagon wheels are mushrooms! I bet you can pick out the rest!

I love those rock-potatoes! And corn cornfields!

What happens to the food after the artwork is created? Donated? Eaten? Thrown out??

These little felt brooches are so adorable and carefully detailed! They were created by Kup Kup, whose Etsy store, Kup Kup Land, is filled with many more equally cute little somethings. I would love to pin a tiny collection of these treats on my jacket!
I saw this on Penguin & Fish blog!

These incredible shots were taken at the Devil’s Pool on Victoria Falls in Africa. In the Devil’s Pool during September and December people can swim right at the edge of the top of the falls and not go over! This would be so amazing! Plus, Victoria Falls is arguably the largest waterfall in the world! What a great way to see it!

These gorgeous shots are from Kuwana Japan’s annual winter light show, in their Nabana no Sato theme park. There are reportedly 4.5 million LED’s in the show! I’ve always wanted to visit Japan, now I wish I could get there before March, when the show ends! So beautiful!

I couldn’t resist putting up these cute kitties I saw on The Moldy Doily- they are all painted up and ready for fun! I don’t think my kitty would tolerate being painted, but it sure does look awesome – I especially love the skeleton one.

I have this book where these exat images came from! It's called "Why Paint Cats"....they are painted with a natural dye..like food coloring or something similar.

Aren’t these pictures so pretty, and oozing with the Free People aesthetic? Free People girl Erica, of Santa Cruz California, went to gorgeous Wilder Ranch and took these shots of her two best friends! She was kind enough to send them our way, partly because everyone she knew commented on how “Free People-y” they looked! I agree, don’t you? I especially love the one with the horse in it! Awesome!
To see the rest of the shoot, have a look here on Erica’s site!
Thanks for sharing these with us Erica! They are so beautiful!

I happen to live in San Francisco and contacted Erica to shoot my Senior Collection for Fashion Design. The shoot was last weekend at the Palace of Fine Arts and the outcome is impressive! Check out some of the shots on Erica's blog http://ericasergio.com/home/2009/2/10/davia-schwind-fashion-shoot.html To design for Free People is my dream job! So expect a mail-out soon!
Free People lover -Nov 23, 2008, 11:21PM
Free People...so, i've seen previous catalogues and of course the photography is beautiful...but this is inspiring and refreshing...I wan't to be inspired by a catalogue not only by the clothes, but through the eye of talent, like this girl. I wish the best for Erica and hope you use someone like her (or her) who is genuine in her love for this art.

yuken teruya paper art

I was introduced to Oh Joy!. The tree shapes are cut from toilet paper rolls and then mounted on dowels on the wall creating the forest and shadows.

Browsing the artist’s site I found the Notice-Forest made with a McDonald’s Happy Meal bag. At first I wasn’t sure what I was looking at. I thought this was the inside of a room, and the McDonald’s graphics were projected with light or something. But the photo is actually take INSIDE the bag, and the tree has been cut out from the top of the bag and stood up inside. It’s amazing!
