I can’t stop admiring these rather surreal pieces by Tyson Skross. After moving to rural Switzerland from Texas at the age of nine, he became intrigued with the odd natural phenomena that he often witnessed. This sort of altered reality and intangibility is what he tries to bring to his work. So strangely beautiful! See more here and here.
My friend Scott in Production came across these crazy interior products called Phat Knits. They’re really interesting to look at! I only wish I could see one of these pieces in real life! The bottom one especially looks like it might be a good place to sleep…

I’m so excited to show you this little video!
Last week we shot the photos for our upcoming catalog in August, and we had some very special models! Our August book will feature some wonderful doggies and kitties from the Philadelphia Animal Welfare Society, also known as PAWS, in the hopes of raising awareness of all the sweet animals in shelters around the country who need a loving home!
Since the catalog won’t be coming out until August, our intrepid Graphic Designer Kevin was on the scene and made sure to interview some of our furry models! Almost all of these guys and gals are currently up for adoption, so if you see someone you’d like to meet, don’t be afraid to contact PAWS and let them know! My kitty is from PAWS, and he has made me and my boyfriend so very happy since the moment we met him! It’s totally worth it!
Wherever you live, if you are looking for a furry best friend, be sure to check out your local shelter. They are easily found on the web or in the yellow pages, and when you get your friend from the shelter, you really are also saving a life! I can’t imagine life without my kitty Homer!
Welcome friends to our Thursday Poll! Can you believe we’ve had 40 polls now?! I hardly can!
Last week we voted on an array of gladiator sandals, and the Libia Sandal was far and away the winner, with over 400 votes! Yowza!
This week I have been looking at all our cute summer scarves, and I’ve been amazed at all the creative ways one can wear a scarf! We have some really cute new styles, and I’m curious to see which ones appeal to you guys.
First check out the Knotted Modal Scarf, shown below in purple.
Next have a look at our Cherry Blossom Mobius Scarf, worn here as a top, and in red.
Now check out our Slinky Fringe Bandana Scarf in pink.
Next up is the Patterned Sunstroke Scarf, shown here as a top, in plum!
Finally, see our Ultimate Fringe Mobius, worn as a top, in poppy.
Well what do you all think? Which scarf is your favorite?
(And if you feel like it, leave a comment and tell your favorite ways to wear scarves! I’m interested to know!)
Okay so this is interesting – the video below captures police in Denmark hugging helmet-less cyclists and giving them helmets. I know it’s probably just a propaganda thing, but do you guys know anything about this? Even if it is a stunt for good press, it’s really cute to see. Good effort!
