Peep making!

It’s almost time for Easter, which means it’s time to eat Peeps! Yum!
The Chicago Tribune has a neat slideshow of the Peeps factory that I enjoyed – you can check it out here. See a few of the shots below! (I found the cool swordfighting Peeps picture here.)

Peeps without sugar-coating look a little bit scary!

Don’t you love this stamp ring by Colleen Baran? It’s so sweet! Why don’t I ever think of this stuff?

pillow blanket

This pillow blanket by Joon & Jung looks so so comfortable. It makes me want to sleep just looking at it! It’s a neat idea too, sewing together many pillows. What do you think?

I recently saw these cuddly crochet pals by GourmetAmigurumi and I can’t get over the little details! I love their expressions and clothing and even their little eyes! Definitely check out GourmetAmigurumi’s blog, as she posts lots of her work in progress which is cool to see, as well as patterns and tips!
Via.

Great comment, love the design of the site too.

These things are cool, but I'm not too sure I'd be eager to cuddle up with one of them!

color bins

Today the sweater designers are using some of their color scrap bins, and they have them laying out and looking very tempting! They are sorted by color, and have the feel of a very pretty mess! I’m quite inspired…

we make our socks out of these scraps...into regenerated cotton. Do you guys send all scraps back to a yarn company to be resused?
morgan -Mar 30, 2009, 11:04PM
I would love to get my hands on that! I agree they are tempting, I feel so many creations coming out of those bins. This blog is so inspiring :)

early emoticons?

I came across these on Made you Look. Neat, right? I can’t decide if I think they are legitimately from the 70′s or not. Perhaps! Either way, I like them, and that they’re “films.” A tiny drop more of information at Made You Look.

Haha I highly doubt it. Did emoticons even exist back then? But they're pretty great.

a small world

The author of Mission Mission spotted this little installation attached to the wall of the building across the street from her/his apartment. I love it – I’d like to imagine some little person actually does live in there! See more pictures here.

Oh man! I've actually seen this before! It was too cute! It also made me think about Basil- The Great Mouse Detective (Walt Disney).

soft + tough

What do you guys think of these studded ballet slippers from Bona Drag? I saw them on Ma Frangine and I’ve been thinking about them ever since! I love the mix of boy and girl style. How about you?

stacy -Sep 24, 2009, 11:52AM
These ballet slippers are really cute with the studs. I would wear them!
Arielle -Mar 31, 2009, 5:56PM

faucet + vase

march-27-rg-3.jpg
Believe it or not, this vase is also a working faucet! It was designed by David Vercelli for the Italian bathroom company Hego Waterdesign. I love the look and the thought behind this faucet, but I have to agree with Apartment Therapy when they say that they aren’t sure they’d be too keen to drink from it. Still, what a neat design!

I love this, and how smart it is! Except orchids would mosdef die this way with just straight water, but other freshcut flowers would be so cool.
Heather -Mar 29, 2009, 9:17PM
wow! this is the most amazing faucet I have ever seen! Just today I was at a friend's house and she has one that looks like an old fashion well pump. A bit similar but this is very cool!

This quick little time-lapse video of a thunderstorm is so awesome! I especially love the planes racing by and the lightening! It’s part of a whole set of time-lapse videos of nature that I saw on Wired. They were all really cool! See them here.

i love it! Haven't been through a storm in a long time!

I’m crazy about these images by Carlo Van De Roer, aren’t they fabulous!? I’d love to have a giant mural of one for a wall in my living room. The feeling of these pictures is like another world!
