leather craft

Frieda Gossett dyes, treats, and hand-stamps designs onto leather before turning it into various creatures. I can’t imagine how long it must take to hand-stamp each little detail into the leather! It’s got to be quite a process! Totally worth it though, these animals are just amazing! I’m especially impressed with the scales on the hammerhead – wow!

I’m really intrigued with these designs from up-and-coming designer Iris Van Herpen. They’re constructed with such unusual materials, and they’re so sculpturally interesting!

Paige, of Paige+Modern, created this awesome portable picnic for your lunch! Isn’t it so cute and clever! Paige made a guest post over on Design*Sponge that tells how to make one! I am so on it!

This crazy concrete, called Solid Poetry and designed by Frederik Molenschot and Susanne Happle, shows a pretty design whenever it gets wet, only to have it disappear again once the concrete is dry! I love it! I wish all sidewalks were made with this concrete!

horse dress

Due in part to her fascination with the stage shows she saw as a girl in which the animals would come on stage with little outfits on, designer Hildegard Bergbauer, who usually designs for women, has started making Dirndl dresses for horses! The horse looks so cute in her dress! Hee hee! Check out Oddly Enough Blog for more.

DUDE, i must say i think this is absolutly blasphemous! What in the universe could posses you to do this to such a thing to such a beautiful, Bold, Sronge creature?

Hey, thanks for linking to my Oddly Enough blog item about the horse outfits. Please come back often and bring your friends. Bests, Bob Basler

I absolutely adore this editorial from Cream Magazine! It was photographed by Macushla Burke, and the wonderful illustrations on top, the birds and such, are by artist Kelly Smith. I saw them on KnightCat and I keep going back to look at them more – they’re so inspiring!

These photographs may not seem like much, until you realize that the subject is the sky at varying stages of sunset! What an awesome idea! Gorgeous too. They’re by Ann Woo – check out her site here.

this is cool. I probably wouldn't have realized they were photographs, either - they look like paintings.

These are beautiful photos. I love art and recently discovered a very cool artist, Paris Gerrard. Her women are hauntingly beautiful and mysterious. Check her out. www.ParisGerrard.com She is well worth a post on. I think that the readers will love her.

If you’ve visited Philly, or live here, you may already be familiar with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which is responsible for helping Philly be the city with the most murals in the USA – we have more than 2,700 – covering everything from famous residents to jeep parts. The festive trucks shown above are part of one of the Mural Arts Program’s latest projects. Partnering with Philadelphia University’s Design Center, together they wrapped 10 of the city’s garbage & recycling trucks in these funky all-over prints! They’ve been doing the rounds with the rest of the trucks since Earth Day, and the other day I saw one on my street! It sounds silly but I was excited! I think next they should wrap all the rest of the trucks…

They should paint Will Smith's portrait on one as the "Fresh Prince." "In West Philadelphia, born and raise, on a playground is where I spend most of my days..."

cross stitch clock!

thrifted-embroidered%2Bclock%2Beagle.jpg
This clock is so awesome! Doe-C-Doe found it when she was thrift shopping for only $5! This is such an inspirational find – it occurs to me how easy it would be to make your own cross stitch clock! I have seen all sizes of clock fixtures at the craft shop for very cheap! It seems like it would be really fun to create your own cross stitch backing with numbers and decoration, and then attach the fixture for the hands!

wow! that is so cool! i wanna get a frame from the flea market and put my own spin on this- a little embroidery, fabric scraps, n seashells
