sew in love letter

Twig & Thistle sewed this cute love letter to her husband. Isn’t it totally adorable? It really brightened my day! I’ll have to try my hand at letter sewing myself!

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!

These pictures by Caroline De Vries are really fun! The bright colors remind me of those pictures of the Indian festival Holi that I posted a while back. Check out the rest of Caroline’s work on her site.

chains

I’m not sure if any of you already saw this amazing hoodie by Ungaro on Fashion Toast, but I had to put it here just in case! Can you believe all the chains?! Even though I feel like this hoodie might be a bit heavy to wear, I would love to have one. What do you guys think of it? Are you in love like me, or are the chains a bit much for you? I’d be interested to know!
Also one other thing very quickly – look at this necklace!

This picture came from The Moldy Doily. How adorable is that necklace?!

I think its too much. I can see my hair getting tangled in the chains or it getting ripped out by other things.

Ooo yes I saw that hoodie on Rumi, it is insane! I definitely fell in love with it at first sight! And how sweet must it be to get free goodies from Ungaro?

postcard from provence

I recently came across Julian Merrow-Smith‘s site Postcard from Provence, and I am totally obsessed! Originally from the UK, Julian currently lives in the Provence region of France, and each day he posts a new painting he has done, usually on postcard sized paper. As you can see, the paintings are just exquisite – I could look through them all day! You can do the same here.
I found his site on Apartment Therapy!
