If Brownie could do this all day every day, he would!
Can we please go back outside and play now?

I'm sorry they were gone briefly, but now they are back, and you can expect them every Thursday again! I'm so glad you look forward to them! Thanks! :):)

garment graffitti

Artist/designer Thomas Voorn has created this series of “Garment Graffitti” writing messages in candy colored clothing. As the folks at Refinery 29 pointed out, it might remind you of all the pieces of clothing you’ve lost in your travels. Kind of makes you imagine all of our lost clothes have found each other, and banded together to send us these messages!

Many of you already know what a huge fan I am of Elsa Mora- her wonderful personality, and her artwork! I am a regular reader of her fabulous blog, so you can imagine my delight when she recently introduced her new, additional blog, which is all about paper-cutting! (One of her many skills.) On it, you can find many of her papercuts, all organized by category, as well as all kinds of information about the art of paper-cutting! Of course, as you can see above, my favorite part is browsing all of her paper-cut work… wow! So delicate!

Sorry to jump back to a much older post, but I just came across these, and my goodness gracious, such elaborate delicacy and precise craftsmanship, that is rarely seen such as, rather a lost art form, and a pity that it is so. Thanks for sharing these though, they're gorgeous and quite inspiring! xoxo, S-C

The Hand Drawn Map Association is a collection of user submitted maps and diagrams drawn by hand. How amazing are these? I love the idea of archiving something that is typically discarded…
Have some of your own hand drawn maps and diagrams? You can submit them to the archive!

I love this. When I was little during car rides I would close my eyes and, pen in hand, let the bumps draw the outline of some land mass. Then I would fill in the space with made up mountain ranges and such. snazzyfashion.blogspot.com

Bird & Leaf

These interesting photos are from a project called Bird & Leaf by Riitta Ikonen and Anja Schaffner. I can’t put my finger on what it is that makes me like them so much. The scenery? The leaf costume? I’m not sure, but I really enjoy these. See the whole set right here.
Found on Lolita.

What a great blog, you really put a lot of effort into this site.

Maybe its because we try so hard to fit in it seems to be a social statement.

Thanks to My Love for You I got the heads-up that Tracemyface Design is having a sale! Check out her Etsy for great deals on posters, prints, and jewelry featuring sweet designs like those shown below! I’m loving the cuckoo clock and the deer, of course…


I love this video of Getz & Gilberto singing The Girl from Ipanema in a movie from 1964. Vintage, beautiful!

This very interesting house was designed by Torafu for a couple that had already lived on the property for years and wanted a new, smaller house. Read all about it here.

These images have been floating all around the web lately, but the attention is well-deserved, and I wanted to make sure you all saw them too!
These silhouettes are from The Adventures of Prince Achmed, which is the oldest animated feature length film that still survives. It was released in 1926, and though there were older animated films, those are lost to us. As you might have guessed, The Adventures of Prince Achmed was created using silhouette animation – and these silhouettes are pretty exquisite!

I once saw this movie with a soundtrack performed live on the piano as it would have originally been seen. It was really amazing. And in case you didn't know, the story is based on the stories of Sheherazade, who wed an evil Shah who was infamous for having one night stands with beautiful ladies and having them killed the next morning. Sheherazade kept an exciting story going with a cliffhanger every night so the Shah would have to keep her alive to find out the next chapter. And thats where the collection "A thousand and one nights" comes from.

Not to mention Lotte Reiniger was the first woman (or person ever, as far as historians know) to create a full feature-length animated film! Kudos to her!

Check out this awesome photo essay by David Friedman! He tells about it best: I shot these photos at a denim factory in Kentucky that specializes in distressing high-end jeans for a few top designers. I used to scoff at paying a premium for jeans that come with holes in them already. Then I saw just how much work goes into distressing jeans, and I realized that these people are artists. You can’t just have any loose threads, you have to have the right loose threads. They can’t just be faded. They have to be the right color. A lot of work goes into making these jeans look just right.
I put my favorite shots below – click here to see the whole essay on David’s blog!
