anyone heading to the telluride bluegrass festival this weekend? i wish i was…there are a couple of bands playing that i really like, and it looks so beautiful and relaxing there – it definitely seems to draw a really laid back, hippie crowd.  colorado is one of the few states in the US i’ve never been to, and i really want to change that very soon…

among the bands playing are alison krauss, yonder mountain string band, bela fleck, edward sharpe and mumford and sons!

Post image for thursday poll – edition 98

now that we’ve told you all about the stripes trend we’re loving right now, i want to know which striped item is your favorite!

do you like bold and bright, like the WTF lace and stripe short sleeve top:

barely there stripes like the crinkle tunic:

textured stripes like the downtown date dress:
17959446_040_a

partial stripes like the super tank mini dress:
17674680_004_a

bold, all-over stripes like the dinner time tieback dress:
18640854_040_a

or multicolored stripes like the super stripe tank:
18171975_062_a

the winner of last week’s dress poll was, by far and away, the downtown date dress with 60% of the vote!

Great information! I’ve been looking for something like this for a while now. Thanks!

A new take on MOD

Post image for A new take on MOD

mod2

Whenever I hear the word ‘stripes’ used in the fashion the thought of Mods and Rockers of the late 1950’s early 60’s spring to mind.

Twiggy, The Who, Edie Sedgwick, Andy Warhol and his Factory are all icons that I associate with this trend.

Stripes are back again but not so 60’s this time around; think subtle, playful, girly stripes that give a pinch of boy, we’re moving away from the bold black and white signature stripe that has been so dominate in the past to a new refreshing, colour palette. Just look at what the designers for Spring Summer 2010 achieved.

Crazy coloured stripes, contrast stripes and stripes worked into knitwear. I think I might be a wee conscious to walk out in the red and blue Marc Jacobs number, However the cute little numbers in our Stripe shop will work just fine for me.

Post image for off the mat into the world

earlier this week i received an email about this amazing cause that i wanted to share.  off the mat into the world is a non-profit organization that uses the power of yoga to inspire conscious, sustainable activism and ignite grassroots social change.  each year, they sponsor an international service project called the global seva challenge, with a different focus each time.  this year’s seva challenge is focused on HIV/AIDS prevention and education in south africa and one of the many events they are attending to raise awareness for this cause is the wanderlust festival!  the woman who contacted me, christina, also told me about these amazing wristbands and anklets that you can purchase to support the cause that are handwoven from recycled materials. i love them and i think one would make a beautiful addition to the collection of bracelets piling up on my wrist!

Anklet

if you are interested in buying one and supporting the cause check out the website or contact globalwristbands@gmail.com.

how beautiful are these collages? they are from the etsy shop knitalatte, run by  a woman who is a family physician but makes things like these cute little crochet covered rocks, which she arranges into collages and photographs.  her blog, resurrection fern,  is full of inspiration as well – go check it out, she has tons of lovely photographs of her projects and nature.

one of the coolest things i saw at bonnaroo was the booth where you could build your own drum! i would totally love to try this- it requires a little effort but the end result makes it totally worth it!

unless you have the ability to carve your own drum shell, you’ll probably need to buy a shell and drum head to start out with. some websites sell kits with all the supplies you need – find some here and here.

once you have all the supplies, here’s a step by step tutorial on how to make your drum!

drum

what you need:

  • djembe drum shell
  • djembe drum head
  • metal rings
  • djembe ropes
  • hammer
  • wood glue

1. apply a 1 inch circular strip of glue along the top edge of the drum shell.

2. grasp the drum head on opposite ends and pull with your hands. pull enough to stretch the head out and be careful not to break it. this stretching allows the natural fibers to become acclimated to the tension exerted on them during use on the drum shell.

3. pull the edges of the drum head over the glued rim of the drum. the head sits taut over the drum shell, with about 2 inches of drum head hanging over each side.

4. place the metal ring over the drum head. it stations loosely over the side of the drum, with the edge of the drum head between the ring and the shell.

5. lace djembe rope between the metal ring and the drum head, creating a crisscross pattern from top to bottom of the drum shell. this rope provides additional pressure on the metal ring and drum head, securing both firmly to the drum shell.

6. hammer the metal ring into the drum shell to tighten its grip on the drum head. this ring and the glue on the drum rim insure that your drum head can take the pressure of use when your drum is complete.

you can personalize your drum with hand-painted decorations, and at bonnaroo they were even tie-dyeing the drum head, it looked really cool!

I just found this post! Better late than never! I used to design at FP and now live in Tennessee with my boyfriend where makes drums much like these! If you love the idea but missed out on Bonnaroo this summer check out his beautiful drums, which you can order custom. Also, I am going to start tie dying heads for his business, Heart Rhythm Drums! So you can rest assured that a FP gal will be handling the color! Much Aloha!

Lol I love how, if you look closely, you can see that the cardboard sign says "if you're high this will take twice as long!" that's awesome :P Looks like a fun thing to try
