the other day i posted some ideas for decorating pumpkins that don’t involve carving, and one of our readers sent these photos of some awesome painted pumpkins that i just had to share…read jennifer’s comment and check out the pumpkins below!
for the past 5 years I’ve been painting pumpkins for andy’s pumpkin express. myself and about 20 other artists from the state paint the pumpkins and they get sold at the event in brick NJ. 100% of the proceeds go to the diabetes fund. pumpkins are done in acrylic paint. every artist there has a specialty pretty much; theres landscape painters, portrait painters ect. i’m more of the animals/movie poster painter, and every year i do another led zeppelin pumpkin.

strut your mutt!

i just posted yesterday about the very admirable work our reader rachel is doing to help shelter animals, so it seems fitting to post about this event taking place tomorrow in philly…

PAWS will hold their 3rd annual mutt strut tomorrow at FDR park, which is a 1.5 mile walk through the park to raise funds and awareness for PAWS and their efforts to save shelter animals. it’s just $25 to register, and you can bring your dog but you don’t have to have one. they had the option to sign up to walk with a PAWS dog but the response was so overwhelming that all the dogs are taken!

the best part is, dozens of PAWS dogs will be at the event…meaning you could meet your new best friend and give it the loving home it needs.

3rd annual PAWS mutt strut – saturday october 31, FDR park (1900 pattison avenue, across from the sports complex)
check-in/registration begins at 10am; start strutting at 11am!

here at the home office, halloween is for the dogs…

fritz is so excited about being a giraffe it was hard to get him to stand still!

Interesting article. I thought to let you know that you website isn't getting displayed properly on minimo mobile web browser on my pda. I wish that increasingly number of webmasters would deliberate upon the fact that there is an ever growing number of users browsing webpages on the mobile. cheers

earlier this week we introduced you to dana of the blog summer teeth, who we asked to do a guest post for our blog. she came back to us with a beautiful batch of photos that she feels are free people inspired and infused. there are quite a few of them so we’ve decided to break them into groups, but keep in mind that they were carefully selected with a narrative in mind, so that the sequence of images tells a story. what’s the story? whatever you interpret it to be :)
so without further ado, here is part one of dana’s guest post!

you might remember back in our august catalog, we featured animals from the philadelphia animal welfare society (P.A.W.S.) in several of the photos. well, one of our facebook fans, rachel, saw this and told us about a really amazing project that she was working on as her bfa thesis.
read on to hear more about rachel’s project and see some of her beautiful photos of the absolutely adorable animals…and tell me it doesn’t make you want to go adopt one!

what inspired you to do start the 4 to 5 million project?
from an early age i grew up aware that there was a serious problem pertaining to the overpopulation of pets in the US. this project stemmed from a passionate desire to communicate my concerns and love for these animals and while doing so, use photography to help inform the public about this heartbreaking and serious problem.

suzy q
what does 4 to 5 million mean?
every year approximately four to five million companion animals are euthanized. that amounts to 64% of all shelter animals around the country. the fact of the matter is, there are just too many pets and not enough homes.

rosie & sparky
how successful has the project been so far?
the project was extremely successful. it gained a lot of press for the shelters as well as for the specific dogs i featured in my photographs. the majority of which i have since been informed have found happy and loving homes. it also has provided people with new knowledge on this issue and with a variety of simple things that they can do to help.

who are your heroes?
the heroes who have had the greatest influence on who i am today are my parents. my father, a veterinarian and my mother, an artist, have too obviously, played a part on what i see through my lens.

do you have a pet?
i have many pets, always have, always will, all of which were rescues! my house currently is home to two rescue chihuahua mixes and a terrier mix named mickey, as well as two cats, a tuxedo named tux and a calico, feather.

what is your first memory of free people?
i first heard of free people when a model who participated in my project, saw your post about philly P.A.W.S. your plan to photograph the shelter animals with models was so similar to what i was doing that she passed on the video post to me. i admire that there are other people out there who are trying to do their part in helping spread the word about this problem. thank you free people!
Check out rachel’s website and blog to find out more about the project and see which animals have found happy homes thanks to rachel’s work!
thanks so much for sharing, rachel :)

that’s right…it’s girls on film on music, halloween edition! here are some creepy cuts selected by bunny and monkey (a.k.a. the girls of girls on film on music).


the rolling stones
– some girls
easy dress up option for men – be a girl. problem being that even men as pretty as mick make seriously unattractive women…
bananarama – the greatest hits collection
blonde, brunette and redhead – a pick n’ mix for three ladies in need of a group costume pronto. and then you get to walk around and tell everyone you’re being “banaaaah-nah-raaaah-mah”.
kate bush – never forever
this album is kate at her best, both in terms of her songs (“babooshka”, “army dreamer”) and cover art…one musician on this album is credited with playing the harmonica, mandolin, balalaika, sitar, koto, banshee, saw, mando and delius. i have the feeling the “banshee” is the official instrument of hallowe’en…
steve martin – a wild and crazy guy
A SUIT AND BUNNY EARS. a man on the same page as me when it comes to his sartorial approach. and i do mean just every day.
bobby “boris” pickett – monster mash
thriller may be the current “grave yard smash” but i’ve always has a certain affinity for this one. and don’t be surprised if at the holidays i’m suggesting you pick up “monsters’ holiday”…
misfits – walk amoung us*
anything by the misfits on halloween is prime, but i think danzig really knocked it out of the park on this one, zombies, martians, checking with your mom if it’s ok to kill tonight, perfect!
various artists – luxury condos coming to your neighborhood soon
though it never received the attention of athens or seattle, hoboken was one of major players in the ’80s indie scene, and the evanescent coyote records helped document this scene with this 1986 compilation. how is this halloween you ask? “elvis, what happened? what happened was you died” lyrics from the mr. bonus song “elvis, what happened?” proving that if you look, anything can me spooky.
the rocky horror picture show soundtrack
i’ll be magenta, and you can be columbia (in the confetti sequin tunic, perhaps?)
*i would have picked “halloween” but for all intensive purposes, it’s only a single

erydaybromb -Dec 15, 2009, 7:51AM
I just love your site! boy george has a wonderful song: http://tinyurl.com/ydono3q i had fallen in love with that song, so can i share it with you? have a blessed holidays and take care

who says you have to carve a pumpkin?
i’m not good with knives, so i really love these creative ideas for decorating pumpkins that don’t involve carving :)

pumpkin penguin! for a step by step look at how its made, click here.

these stenciled pumpkins can be done with stencils like the ones found here.

accessorize your pumpkin with beads, jewels and charms!
ss_100964026.jpg
decorate your pumpkin with lace patterns! this can be done really easily with paper doilies, as demonstrated here.

finally, decoupage your pumpkin with whatever you want…i really like the edgar allen poe theme in this one.
i want to try all of the above…if any of you have some cool pumpkin decorating or carving ideas and pictures, send them my way!

Jennifer -Oct 30, 2009, 11:05AM
oo! i think you'd get a kick outta this. i paint pumpkins every year for a group called "andys pumpkin express", to help raise money for juvenile diabetes. these are some of the ones i did for the past 2 years, enjoy! http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y225/candieass1005/againurg053.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y225/candieass1005/andypumpkin2.jpg http://i6.photobucket.com/albums/y225/candieass1005/earlyfall.jpg

good morning…how about some pretty photos to start your day? these pictures were taken by our reader sarah, who attended the treasure island music festival in san francisco a couple of weeks ago. she was nice enough to share them with the blog, and they’re fantastic…

Hi. I googled flappers for an art project and I was wondering if I could use this picture http://blog.freepeople.com/flapper-1-1.jpg I was wondering if it is public domain? Please email me.

another trend we’re excited about right now is shoes in all different shades of brown…whether they’re hazel, chestnut, chocolate, tan or caramel, brown shoes look good with any fall look!
i was inspired to search for brown shoes around the office and found quite a few…so here’s a look at office style, brown shoe edition…
