hammer time

This will wake you up right! A group of dancers wearing hammer pants rush into a random store and surprise everyone with an awesome dance!

That made my morning, thanks! I am old enough to have worn a pair of 'hammer pants' (well, in grade 8). Some of the customers at the beginning look scared!

I am obsessed with these collages by Sarah Ogren! I love animal heads on human bodies. I don’t know why, they’re just really appealing – don’t you agree? Don’t miss Sarah’s blog, and check out her Etsy shop too!

floating gardens

I don’t quite understand how, but apparently this cool garden on top of an aquarium serves as the filter for the water! I already thought it was a great design just from the photo, but when I read that I was extra-impressed! It’s so pretty! This idea was by Benjamin Grandorge, with some help from Duende Studio.

How would you like to live in one of these painted apartment buildings in Russia? I love all the eye popping colors! Check out this blog for many more great photos! I think my car needs a paint job like this…

Hi there! I really like the Free People blog and I love all the cool ideas that are posted in it. Since a lot of the blog-items show artwork and creative projects, I figured you might also like the artwork of my father, who is specialized in trompe-l'oeils (French word for illusions created by paintings). Check out his website for all the beautiful projects he has already realized. Unfortunately, this Dutch website hasn't been translated in English yet. But most of the pictures, which you can see in the section called 'open werken', speak for themselves. I especially like his first elevator-project (lift I), the second toilet-project (toilet II) and the guestroom-project (logeerkamer). I'm not trying to get a chance for free publication this way, I just hope that other people can enjoy my father's artwork! http://www.interieurillusies.com/index.php Kind regards from a Belgian free-people-aholic!

Last night our Free People kickball team had it’s final game of the season. Though we lost to Urban Outfitters with a score of 8 to 7, the FP team competed admirably, and had a lot of fun!

Some members of the team get psyched for the game!

Heather gives the ball a good hard kick.

Ever since Lark About posted a few shots of British supermodel Jean Shrimpton the other day, I have been on a kick, collecting images of her! They’re great old fashion photos, and she has such a classic look! Love!

Great post! You may want to follow up to this topic =D dog grooming

I came across a Jean look alike http://www.flickr.com/jeanieshrimpton the woman is older in her photos than Jean was in the photos shown. But there is a remarkable resemblance. I think the look alike has a better nose.

knit a bikini top

I’m really excited to try out this tutorial from ThreadBanger- it shows how to knit your own bikini top! They go along very slowly and explain clearly what to do! The only thing is that there is a quick advertisement in the middle, but it’s worth it because the tutorial is good. If you need a little basic knitting instruction first, check out our learn-to-knit videos here, here, and here!

wordle!

Our friend Lisa at Bazaarvoice, (the company that hosts our product reviews for our site,) used this fun generator at Wordle to make the word collage above. She took all of the product reviews on our website from the last few months or so, and entered them in the generator. The more a word was used, the bigger it appears in the image! It’s pretty fun! Plus, it made a cool visual of what our reviewers are saying.
Use the generator here to make your own word collages! It would be fun to take all the text on your Facebook profile, for example, and see what words come up the most!

It's interesting to see the words other customers are using in their Free People product reviews. Apparently most people LOVE their purchase which is great!

i love wordle! i've done my facebook profile before, but one of my favorites was using the lyrics to "let it be" by the beatles...

3-d collages

Cut-Out_Collection_%28Black%20And%20White%29_web.jpg
These collages by Sarah Bridgland really caught my eye! To make them she uses all kinds of discarded paper, stationary, old books, newspapers, comics, you name it. The old staple boxes used for these particular pieces are really cool too!

That is so cool! It looks like a 3D comic book explosion!

I’ve enjoyed browsing through Polanoid, where these pictures are from, for a good part of this morning! Polanoid is in the process of building the biggest Polaroid-picture-collection on the planet to celebrate the magic of instant photography. I don’t know that it beats Flickr, but I like it! Check it out if you are a fan of photos!

I love poloroids and I wish that they weren't a dying art form! But if you are interested you can take a class at Peter's Valley Craft Center called 'The Last Poloroid Workshop' August 21-24 (4 days) Check out the website www.petersvalley.org :) You could be part of something big in the photography world!!

These little brownie burgers and sugar cookie fries are so adorable! And tasty looking! Bakerella has a fantastic tutorial that you should definitely check out if you’re in a baking mood! She even has templates to create the tray and french fry holder! I can’t wait to try it out, maybe this weekend!

How cool is this wallpaper by Gallant Tales?! To me it looks kind of like someone drew on the walls with a Bic pen! I don’t know if it was that guy’s Sharpie marker basement decor that put me in the mood for it, but I really like it!
