One week ago today our newest store opened, in SoHo! Our Assistant Art Director popped up for the grand opening last week and took a bit of video. The store looks so awesome! I can’t wait to see it for myself! For now the video tour will have to do – check it out!

doily art

I love these heart, brain and lung doily drawings by Lisa Solomon. I had never seen her work before, and though I was initially attracted to her site for the organs, her other doily drawings are really cool too!

Thomas Doyle, the creator of these incredible dioramas, says in his artist statement that he feels work done in such small scale allows for the intimacy one might feel peering into a museum display case or dollhouse. I completely agree – and I think that is one thing that is so appealing about these pieces! It is quite like looking into a dollhouse for me, except rather than wanting to jump in and join the scene, I am worried for the little people in these dioramas – they seem like they are in peril! Still, amazing work, and you can check out Thomas’ site to see more.

I saw this picture over on Knight Cat and I can’t get it out of my head! What sticks in my mind is that chain headband! I know that more than likely it isn’t very comfortable, but with the current craze for all things chained and studded, I have to confess I like it! It caught my eye immediately. Have you guys seen any chain headbands elsewhere? Do you think it looks cool too, or are you not feeling it? Has anyone worn one? Are they comfortable? Thoughts please!

i have one from a few years ago from H&M.. very comfortable, i wear it all the time!

I've worn the chain headbands, and I find them to be more comfortable than most headbands--especially the hard plastic ones. I prefer the chain headbands with the silk woven in between--it gives it a little more femininity :) However, now that I see this one, I want one like it!

Fun! It might look a little funny if you leave it on while wearing it ;)

These tree pop-up books are wonderful! They’re made of paper and a bit of wood by Lizzie Thomas of Brighton, UK.

The girl who runs This is Love Forever just put a how-to on CraftStylish that shows how to make the springy centerpieces shown above! They are so adorable and chipper- I will definitely be trying my hand at this project! See it here!

crochet time!

These neat designs are all from Marcel Wanders Studio, with the light being their most recent crochet creation. I love how they look! I only wish there were a few more photos so I could see more how they are made, or maybe see the fixture in the light for example. Still, I’m intrigued, and I would love that light!

These simple little prints by Blanca Gomez are part of a cute set she did called Monsieur/Mademoiselle. I’m especially enjoying the rainy ones, since it is so so rainy here today! See the whole happy set here.

tone matrix

The screenshot below looks pretty unassuming, but I can assure you that those little squares are actually something awesome! The Tone Matrix is a sine wave synthesizer, the key word for us here being sythesizer, as in you make music with it! I can’t explain very well how it works or what it does exactly, but if you go play with it you will not be able to stop! Try it! I really think you guys will love this – enjoy!

I was in the store on 74th & 3rd in New York City. There was a song playing there and some of the lyrics were along the lines of "I've got you in my heart to make it all harder i will stay addicted to you"

record purse

Another clever use of obsolete music apparatus – record purses, by Chilean design student Natalia Pezoa! They look pretty cool! They would go very well with one of those cassette tape wallets, right?

Sam -Apr 16, 2009, 8:26PM
Yeah records are making a comeback!
brenda -Apr 16, 2009, 7:19PM
