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...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!

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?

Free People is hosting a winter craft swap called The Art of Giving! It’s been a long time since our last swap, so I am super excited. Join us in handcrafting some amazing gifts for your fellow Free People friends and spread the winter cheer.
Here’s how it works: You fill out the simple form with your name, email, and mailing address. People outside the United States are welcome to join, but if you live in the U.S., you can indicate if you do not want to ship internationally. I will match you up with a partner and send you their email and shipping address.
You’ll have until New Years to make a gift and mail it to your partner. You can make anything you want. The wintery theme can be your inspiration. You can make something to keep warm, decorate your home, or simply make your partner smile.
Click here to join the swap. Sign up will end next Friday, November 21.
Check out some of our old flickr groups from previous swaps! Valentine 08, Dark Fairy, Travel, and Valentine 07.

I adore these illustrations from Katie Kirk‘s wonderful children’s book, Eli, No! They are done in such a cute style, and the book is just wonderful! See the rest of it here on Katie’s Flickr. The book is not yet published (I seriously can’t see why not) but you can bet whenever it gets published (I’m sure it will soon) I will be getting a copy!

cozy house

I have been looking all afternoon for information about this house, but I can’t seem to find any other than that it is in Iceland, and was photographed by Pascal Fellonneau, who has a lot of other gorgeous photos of Iceland on his site. I couldn’t resist showing it to you! I’d love to live there…

pruittfpgirl -Nov 13, 2008, 11:08AM
Wow! Thank you very much Pascal, for the info and for the visit!
Pascal Fellonneau -Nov 13, 2008, 7:15AM
I took this photo, so I can say a little more about this house. It is a part of an old farm from the 18th century, called Glaumbaer farm, near the small town of Varmahlid, western Iceland. You can easily find infos about it on the web.

This video of the Reno Balloon Race makes me happy. It’s all sped up, and the balloons look really cute and cheerful zipping and bounding around so quickly! Enjoy!

Alyssa -Nov 10, 2008, 12:40PM
Anyone thinking of the dancing mushrooms from the original Fantasia? The video should have that music to it.

I love this “graffiti” using moss, created by Anna Garforth and Elly Stevens. They call the project MOSSenger. I wish I could figure out how they got the moss to be on the wall in those letters like that! I can’t find any information on the project that elaborates on the process very much. Still, very cool! For more pictures and information, check out this post on Yatzer!

This goes to all the grown-ups who thing graffiti is "ugly" and "defacing". Take THAT!
