These awesome photos are by New York City photographer Sam Bassett. He seems to do more portraits than anything else, but as you can see, they are really unusual and interesting portraits! I have been wandering around his site for a chunk of this afternoon, and if you liked these pictures at all, you will definitely enjoy looking around it yourself!
Via It’s Nice That.
Don’t you love these pictures? I think they are so gorgeous! They are the work of L Filipe dos Santos of Corcoise, and if not for Penguin & Fish I would never have found him! If you are into them too, be sure to check out his blog and his Flickr photostream- there are a lot more beautiful pieces to be found there!
These humorous and dark silhouettes are from Silhouette Masterpiece Theater, by Wilhelm Steahle. I love how he uses old paintings as the backgrounds! If this kind of stuff tickles your fancy, check out more here!
Don’t forget about our FP Style Event, which is going on right now!

Ever since I saw this picture on Booooooom, I can’t stop looking at it! I’m not sure if it’s the really textural stuff the people are standing in, or the total lack of stuff in the top part of the picture. (Other than the bits flying off the person’s hands.) I just really like it! It’s by Brendan Monroe, and if you are intrigued too, you should check out the post Booooooom did about him. You’ll find many more interesting works with lots of movement in them.
I came across this article about the modern American farmer, and saved it for the release of our Farmer’s Daughter catalog. The Morning News showcases the amazing photos from Paul Mobley’s book “American Farmer: The Heart of Our Country” and an interview with the photographer that spent four years exploring the people that are bringing food to our local farmer’s markets.

I love this dog hat. I love it! Trixie totally needs one. Trouble is, I can’t seem to find a pattern for it anywhere! I can’t even find out who made it! I found the picture on fffffound, and they claim that they found it on Apartment Therapy. However I searched all over Apartment Therapy and came up with nothing! Do any of you skilled knit and crocheters have any ideas of how one would make this hat? Note: Thanks to reader ZombieFace, I now know where you can find the dog hat on the web! See it here, and it’s Apartment Therapy page here! Thank you ZombieFace!
Additionally – while I was looking for the dog hat on Apartment Therapy, look at what I did find!
A hamburger bed! I never would have thought I’d want to sleep with lettuce and cheese sheets and a bun comforter, but actually, the hamburger bed looks pretty comfy! It really amuses me, so I wanted to share it with you!
Above is the girl who created the bed, relaxing on her design. To top it off, you can be the hamburger bed’s Facebook friend, if you feel so inclined.
What do you think of these cute houses for your books and such? Called Library, this little project was designed by Thomas Bentzen of Denmark. I love how it reminds me of my dollhouse from when I was a kid. Looks roomy too!
I had lots of fun flipping through this online gallery of book covers and designers! I love seeing the different versions of the same books and seeing covers I’ve never seen for books that I have read.
Have you ever bought a book based on the cover? Did the book live up to the art? Leave us a comment with the link to your favorites!
I’m loving this cover I spotted today. Maybe I’ll give it a read…
Glamping, or glamorous camping, is starting to become more popular as a form of camping for people who wouldn’t ordinarily enjoy camping. There are a number of glamp-sites popping up everywhere! Pre-pitched and lavishly furnished tents, stocked ponds, and numerous other amenities are some of the features of these places. For the most part they do not have electricity or internet though – thank goodness! I think if they had internet or electricity their resemblance to camping would be pretty much gone. The New York Times has a little article about glamping here. What do you guys think? Do you want to go glamping?
