I’ve been really enjoying the clever images of Sarah Illenberger. She does lots of different work for companies like Vanity Fair, NY Times and Nike, all of which is original and fun like the stuff shown above! Check out her website for more fun stuff.

These lovely lights are by Bodo Sperlein. I love the soft shapes! No doubt they are far and away out of my price range, but a girl can dream!

These chunky felted bead necklaces are so cool! I love how they look, and you know they probably are fun to touch as well! Kleas made the ones shown above with her pre-school class, who then took the necklaces home to their mothers!
She put together some very nice how-to instructions for making the felted beads and the jewelry! It looks really easy and fun, check it out!

These great fashion illustrations are by Monsieur Qui. Aren’t they cool?! I really like them, especially the watercolor accents – very inspiring! Be sure to check out Monsieur Qui’s blog too, as he keeps some work there that can’t be seen on his website!

I love all these animal charms by Happy Owl Glassworks! There are so many different animals I could never pick one; they’re all too good!
I can’t believe you can get them as night lights, too – that is so awesome! Check out their site here.

I love these pretty and original light shades made by StudioTempera! They are gourds! StudioTempera, which is based in Turkey, hollows them out, decorates them, and then pokes little holes in them to be filled with beads for colored light, or nothing for normal light! They are so beautiful!
Apartment Therapy found these!

more giant knits

These pictures are of a piece Christien Meindertsma created for the exhibit Design for a Living World, which just opened at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. The exhibit aims to tell a unique story about the life-cycle of materials and the power of conservation and design.
For Christien’s piece, she used wool from a sustainable sheep ranch in Idaho and created a “flock” of different knit parts, each one made from 3.5 pounds of wool, the yield of a single sheep. Then she sewed them all together to make one huge and heavy knit rug!
It reminds me a bit of those phat knits from before. I love them both! There is something about the thick texture of these giant knits that is irresistible!

cassandra rhodin pillowcases

You may recall when I posted this and other pieces by Cassandra Rhodin a while back…
To my delight, she recently did some pillowcases for H&M Home, and they look so awesome!

Boy I would love to have a set! They’re so pretty!
