Happy holidays from the New York showroom team! Here they are enjoying a little pot luck holiday celebration in the office.
For the life of me I can’t remember where I originally saw these book pages, but they are so darn interesting! I think the second picture would be really cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt. Like maybe take all the “R” stuff and put it on a shirt. What do you think? See more pages from the book here – seriously go look, they’re really neat!
I really like this bracelet that was spotted on Dries Van Noten’s Spring runway! It’s so cute and festive – but even better is that Carbon Couture has created an awesome DIY version, with step-by-step instructions so it’s really easy to make! See how cute their version is below – I kind of like it even better than the Dries Van Noten one! Click here to go to the instructions!
It took Eric Tabuchi four years to collect the right pictures to complete this truck alphabet. Totally worth it, but I’m wondering, how did he ever find the Q? And I love the lower-case F. He’s working on another truck alphabet currently, and you can see what he has gotten so far on his site.

Can you believe this cake? It made me do a double-take! The sushi decorations look so real! I spotted it on We Heart It, and then discovered it was made by a local Philadelphia bakery, Whipped Bakeshop. Whipped Bakeshop were also the creators of the wedding cake for Betsey Ross & Ben Franklin’s wedding this past Independence Day. You can see it below, it was really festive!
I had to show you this Chase Utley cookie Whipped Bakeshop made as well. It’s just too cute!
While we’re talking baked goods – this morning I wandered into the Free People kitchen and saw these cute little reindeer cupcakes! Yum! Our Office Coordinator, Lindsay, actually didn’t make them for a holiday celebration, but for our Assistant to the President, Carol, whose birthday is tomorrow! Regardless, they are practically too sweet to eat!
Now that’s a Christmas tree that doesn’t take up too much floor space! Jane of All the Luck in the World created this alternative tree with a bunch of random objects she had laying around that she had collected over the years. The objects themselves are so pretty and interesting – they’re like the tree and the ornaments all in one!

I’m really digging the work of Emma Ferguson. She’s already pretty well known it seems, and has been featured in magazines and such – but I just saw her work for the first time on Design Dig and I’m loving it! Motherboards as the subject of embroidery rocks pretty hard! Her website has a kind of blog-esque format – I’ll be checking it regularly for sure.
A lot of you have a little break next week, and maybe you want a fun holiday craft to do? I posted these a couple years ago and everyone loved them, so I thought I’d share again!
Our display team made these beaded trees with those styrofoam cones you can buy at the craft store, a bunch of beads, and straight pins. They are SO easy to make and look so pretty and festive. Dump out that bead box and start pinning!
I can see these looking really pretty in more specific colors too, like if you did one all white and sparkly, or used just a few colors instead of the rainbow.
Landscape architect and designer Gustafson Porter created this beautiful floating canopy with helium balloons and some shade cloths (and I imagine they’re tied to the ground somehow, otherwise your canopy would just fly away!). I love the idea of marking off a space in nature, and the fact that it’s floating makes it kind of magical and organic.
This was posted on Apartment Therapy back in September, but I just discovered today on Cup of Jo.
