How cool is this wallpaper by Gallant Tales?! To me it looks kind of like someone drew on the walls with a Bic pen! I don’t know if it was that guy’s Sharpie marker basement decor that put me in the mood for it, but I really like it!

I love these book purses by Rebound Designs. Each purse is hand-made using a vintage hardback book and fabric. My only hang-up was, as an avid reader, I was a little bit sad to see the old books gutted to be purses. (Even though I want one!) However, Caitlin, the woman behind Rebound Designs, reports that most of the books she uses have already been damaged anyway. So hoorah! I’ll take the Nancy Drew purse please!

This awesome tree house was built on a redwood tree a bit north of Auckland, New Zealand. It houses a restaurant, and was designed by Pacific Environment Architects as a marketing promotion for New Zealand Yellow Pages.
I’ve never seen a tree house that shape before – it reminds me a bit of a nautilus shell! It looks so pleasant! I’m ready to go there and live now! Many more pictures here and here.
I was really struck by this editorial posted on KnightCat earlier today – but what really gets me is the make-up! Everyone at KnightCat was commenting on the hair. Her hair is great, but that eye make-up is just incredible! If I thought I could ever apply those gorgeous eyelashes in the first picture (without poking my eyes out) I would in a second!
What do you guys think? And does anyone happen to know what magazine these shots came from?
I’m not sure I can explain The Uniform Project any better than the woman herself, so here is a quote from the website:
Starting May 2009, I have pledged to wear one dress for one year as an exercise in sustainable fashion. Here’s how it works: There are 7 identical dresses, one for each day of the week. Every day I will reinvent the dress with layers, accessories and all kinds of accoutrements, the majority of which will be vintage, hand-made, or hand-me-down goodies. Think of it as wearing a daily uniform with enough creative license to make it look like I just crawled out of the Marquis de Sade’s boudoir.
The Uniform Project is also a year-long fundraiser for the Akanksha Foundation, a grassroots movement that is revolutionizing education in India. At the end of the year, all contributions will go toward Akanksha’s School Project to fund uniforms and other educational expenses for slum children in India.
So freaking awesome! Check out all her outfits so far here.
