I am just falling in love with Carbon Couture, especially with her crafty ways of creating fashion accessories! Shown above are some cool tassel earrings from the Marc Jacobs Spring 2009 collection, and below are the earrings she made to look just like them! I love it! See here on her blog to create your own with her easy instructions!
Also, a while ago, she made a how-to for this Dries Van Noten bracelet that is really great if you’re in the mood!

This picture completely trips me out! Focus on one spot in the picture and it will stop moving all around. It’s the cover from Animal Collective’s newest album, Merriweather Post Pavilion. Word is that this album is doing extremely well, which rocks, cause I love Animal Collective! Want to hear a song off the album? Go here to listen to the song My Girls.
Ever since I saw this picture on Booooooom, I can’t stop looking at it! I’m not sure if it’s the really textural stuff the people are standing in, or the total lack of stuff in the top part of the picture. (Other than the bits flying off the person’s hands.) I just really like it! It’s by Brendan Monroe, and if you are intrigued too, you should check out the post Booooooom did about him. You’ll find many more interesting works with lots of movement in them.
Yes, those are real living plants on the wall! Created by Green Fortune, the plantwall can be installed at any size, and can have a number of different plant combinations, depending on how you want your wall to look and how fast you want it to grow. So awesome! I could never afford one, but I can dream!

The awesome picture of punky letters above was found at Ryan’s Sketchez!
I came across this article about the modern American farmer, and saved it for the release of our Farmer’s Daughter catalog. The Morning News showcases the amazing photos from Paul Mobley’s book “American Farmer: The Heart of Our Country” and an interview with the photographer that spent four years exploring the people that are bringing food to our local farmer’s markets.

I love this dog hat. I love it! Trixie totally needs one. Trouble is, I can’t seem to find a pattern for it anywhere! I can’t even find out who made it! I found the picture on fffffound, and they claim that they found it on Apartment Therapy. However I searched all over Apartment Therapy and came up with nothing! Do any of you skilled knit and crocheters have any ideas of how one would make this hat? Note: Thanks to reader ZombieFace, I now know where you can find the dog hat on the web! See it here, and it’s Apartment Therapy page here! Thank you ZombieFace!
Additionally – while I was looking for the dog hat on Apartment Therapy, look at what I did find!
A hamburger bed! I never would have thought I’d want to sleep with lettuce and cheese sheets and a bun comforter, but actually, the hamburger bed looks pretty comfy! It really amuses me, so I wanted to share it with you!
Above is the girl who created the bed, relaxing on her design. To top it off, you can be the hamburger bed’s Facebook friend, if you feel so inclined.
I know it’s a little late to be posting about calendars, but I couldn’t resist showing you this cool bubble calendar! Popping the bubbles on bubble wrap is one of the most satisfying things I can imagine, so I love the idea of having one to pop for each day or the year! Get one here.
