Artist Heather Benning created this life-size dollhouse from an abandoned farmhouse in Saskatchewan! One outside wall has been completely replaced with plexiglass to create the dollhouse view. Heather also decorated the house with 60′s furnishings, on account of that is when the house was apparently abandoned. I would love to go and visit this in real life! I would be overcome with the desire to go in though – that is always my problem with regular sized dollhouses – I want to get in somehow!

There are lots of studding DIY ideas out there, but I’m am loving this! You could stud up some denim scraps and patch them onto a pair of old jeans that need some new life.

Can you believe this tiny little garden?! The Green Capsule only grows one seed at a time – the kit comes with tomato, sweet basil, cabbage and green pepper. I like that it has a little strap! It’s designed to be attached to your cellphone but I think I might rather wear mine around my neck! They’re sold here if you feel so inclined…

When I saw these pictures from Prada’s stud-heavy F/W 09 collection on Men’s Rag, they really got me to thinking.
I have read quite a few fashion bloggers who are downright tired of the whole stud trend. For what it’s worth my boyfriend also thinks studs are over, though he is no fashion plate. However, Prada obviously disagrees, as do I – when I first saw these pictures I loved them instantly! I think all the studding looks great, and I especially want one of those nice shirts!
So of course what I’m wondering is what you readers think! Are studs getting to be over-played or are you guys still feeling it?
Check it out! Our graphic designers were so kind as to create a beautiful new Free People desktop wallpaper for us! I love the colors, it’s perfect for spring! Download it here on Flickr.
Hooray! It’s Thursday again! I wonder if I would even notice how fast the weeks go by if I didn’t have the poll to remind me…
Last week we looked over the different colors of the Sequined Mesh Tunic, and white was the favored color, with 220 votes!
This week I’ve been looking at our selection of gladiator sandals. Gladiators were huge last summer, and it looks like they will continue to dominate this summer as well. Check out these different styles! Which pair do you like the most?
First is up is the Gold Crystal Sandal.
Next see our Garland Sandal in gold.
Missbehave just did a REALLY inspiring interview with the girls behind Madison Harding shoes. Barri and Hilary talk about how they started the company with no money while working separate full-time jobs and knowing close to nothing about designing shoes. They make you feel like you can do it! Start your own business!
The interview is really funny and awesome. And they mention one of their favorite places they are selling to: Free People! You can check out their Stud Fringe Sandal featured in our March catalog.
I know that many different art alphabets have been making the rounds lately on the net, so I hope you are not too tired of them to enjoy this awesome Google Maps alphabet! I really especially loved this one, I had to share! These were found by Rhett Dashwood, and interestingly enough, he found all the letters within the state of Victoria, Australia! I’m serious! That really makes me think. I bet one could find an alphabet in each of the 50 American states!
Well, maybe… See the bigger version of the alphabet on Rhett’s site.
Happy Earth Day everyone! I hope you’re all having fun today, even if you’re working, and it’s raining, like it is here! We are having a blast and enjoying the Go Green Bazaar going on in 543 today! There are all kinds of Earth Day booths and some green vendors too of course! Some people are selling some green body lotions and similar wares, and it smells so good!
