PET project

petprojclose.jpg
These pretty jellyfish are all made from PET plastic bottles! I love that this art recycles, on top of which, the jellyfish are so delicate and pretty! Here’s a little note from the creator, Miwa Koizumi:
I love the idea of using liquid containers to make water animals. Contained/containing, trash/not-trash, like the jelly-fish or anemone: Living/non-living
And I wanted some pets…

Cute!

This video makes me want to go to the aquarium right now! It was shot by Jon Rawlinson at the Okinawa Churaumi Aquarium in Japan. This particular tank is the second largest aquarium tank in the world! How fun would it be to be that scuba diver at the bottom…

P.S. The fullscreen version is pretty rocking.

I love the beautiful details in these pieces by Fuco Ueda! They come off like very vivid dream worlds! Don’t miss Fuco’s website.

This projection on the side of a building by UrbanScreen is completely awesome! It’s called How it would be, if a house was dreaming. Mesmerizing!

(I've already commented way too many times today, but all of these posts are so great!) Could you imagine a quilt with a bunch of these prints? I swear, that quilt would be forever on my couch just waiting to be SEEN!

I can’t believe all the great musicians that are playing in Camden this weekend! The XPoNential Music Festival is taking place at Wiggins Park on the Camden, New Jersey waterfront, starting today at 4pm through this Sunday! Definitely look into it if you are in the Philadelphia/Camden area, because from the looks of that list of musicians, this is going to be an awesome festival!
Today! July 24th through Sunday July 26th
Wiggins Park
Camden, NJ

I love the bohemian look of these pictures! I would love to hang out in a room like that, and wearing those clothes! We pulled them a while ago for inspiration, but now no one can remember where they came from! Do any of you know?

Thanks so much, FP! I ordered the jeans in a 26. Thank you so much for your helpful and quick answer, I really appreciate it. I wanted to order the jeans asap in case stock ran out. I hear such good things about Siwy jeans and their popularity, so it would not surprise me! :) Have a good day. -Mushie Moon

Yeah! It’s poll time!
The winner of last week’s poll on mini skirts was decidedly the Tiered Denim Ruffle Mini, with a total of 174 votes!
This week I am really excited to ask you all about the Studded Cuff Thermal Top that recently came out. I’ve got to confess, I am extra-excited for this top because it comes in an XL! We’ve started making just a few tops that come in a size XL, and I’m keeping my fingers crossed that we will add more styles in XL! Adding to that, this top comes in quite a few different colors, which is always great, and I’m wondering which color you guys will think is the best!
First, check out the top in charcoal.

Next, here’s the top in melon!

Shown here is the top in white.

Next up is the top in teal.

Finally, check out the top in wine wash.

What do you guys think? Which color is the best?

Liz -Jul 24, 2009, 9:09AM
Tough choice, but I think I would have to go with the charcoal!
g! -Jul 23, 2009, 5:07PM
I love this top. There was a similar one last year and I actually preferred most of the colors from then, but I never bought any! I'll definetly be getting the melon and wine wash (my faves). As for sizing, a lot of the tops seem to run kinda small. I'm a xs/s and would probably opt for a medium for this.

Valerie Molnar‘s work with knitting and color is really interesting! I like that it throws my eye off for a moment, and makes me think! Check out more here.
