Aren’t these paintings by Shelton Walsmith lovely? I really love the colors and the abstract feel. Be sure to check out his website – all of his work is really good! I would have put every painting he has in this post if I could have!

There’s something really appealing about these yarn wrapped beads – I don’t know if it’s just that they are so whimsical and tiny, or the colors, or what! They’re made by Maria Cavallero of Argentina, who has many more of these little charmers on her Etsy – take a look if you feel so inclined!
I saw these on Love Forever.
I really love these crazy drawings by James Roper! There is so much happening in them! These are from a set called Rapture, but if you’re into them you should definitely check out the work on the rest of his site, as he has lots of work where he experiments with color and lines in a similar way. Fun stuff!
This video is so funny and cool! It’s an old clip from the 1930′s, in which a few fashion designers predicted what they thought people would be wearing in the future! For being so far back as the 30′s, their predictions weren’t totally off base, I thought. Enjoy!
Frieda Gossett dyes, treats, and hand-stamps designs onto leather before turning it into various creatures. I can’t imagine how long it must take to hand-stamp each little detail into the leather! It’s got to be quite a process! Totally worth it though, these animals are just amazing! I’m especially impressed with the scales on the hammerhead – wow!
Due in part to her fascination with the stage shows she saw as a girl in which the animals would come on stage with little outfits on, designer Hildegard Bergbauer, who usually designs for women, has started making Dirndl dresses for horses! The horse looks so cute in her dress! Hee hee! Check out Oddly Enough Blog for more.
