thanks jp :)
“little drifters” is a project organized by booooooom and the vancouver sun, in which they asked people to gather pieces of driftwood, twigs, leaves, berries, dandelions, pine cones, feathers – pretty much anything that can be considered “natural” – and build a little boat using only these materials! they were then asked to take their boat to a body of water and take a picture of it. i LOVE them! such a creative idea and people put together the most beautiful little creations. here are some of my favorites…
the project was largely inspired by the work of lenny, who had this tip that i really liked for some reason:
“masts and sails don’t make them go faster, it just means you can see them for longer as they drift away.”

to celebrate the start of our countdown until vintage loves, we broke out the old fisher price record player in the office today – and it actually still works! i had one of these when i was little and i now want to go dig it up.
one of our fp girls was on her way to wanderlust yesterday and sent me some great photos… can you feel my jealousy?
our beloved customer service manager is pictured on this year’s eagles season tickets! to show their appreciation for their biggest fans, the eagles put their photos on the tickets, saying “we reached out to you to share your eagles stories with us and we were touched by the depths of your passion for eagles football. all ten of this year’s tickets feature fans with a unique perspective on what it means to be an eagles fan.”
bob’s story? “i painted E-A-G-L-E-S on my neighbor’s roof for the planes flying overhead. now did she know about it? well…”

“we went back to morocco for 7 days to shoot the august catalog. we traveled from marrakesh to morocco’s “hollywood town” of ouarzazate and then 7 hours into the sahara desert from there. it was an amazing trip… we laughed a lot, slept under the most stunning stars, rode camels… i will never forget this adventure.”
much more to come…
