These photographs may not seem like much, until you realize that the subject is the sky at varying stages of sunset! What an awesome idea! Gorgeous too. They’re by Ann Woo – check out her site here.

this is cool. I probably wouldn't have realized they were photographs, either - they look like paintings.

These are beautiful photos. I love art and recently discovered a very cool artist, Paris Gerrard. Her women are hauntingly beautiful and mysterious. Check her out. www.ParisGerrard.com She is well worth a post on. I think that the readers will love her.

If you’ve visited Philly, or live here, you may already be familiar with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which is responsible for helping Philly be the city with the most murals in the USA – we have more than 2,700 – covering everything from famous residents to jeep parts. The festive trucks shown above are part of one of the Mural Arts Program’s latest projects. Partnering with Philadelphia University’s Design Center, together they wrapped 10 of the city’s garbage & recycling trucks in these funky all-over prints! They’ve been doing the rounds with the rest of the trucks since Earth Day, and the other day I saw one on my street! It sounds silly but I was excited! I think next they should wrap all the rest of the trucks…

They should paint Will Smith's portrait on one as the "Fresh Prince." "In West Philadelphia, born and raise, on a playground is where I spend most of my days..."

cross stitch clock!

thrifted-embroidered%2Bclock%2Beagle.jpg
This clock is so awesome! Doe-C-Doe found it when she was thrift shopping for only $5! This is such an inspirational find – it occurs to me how easy it would be to make your own cross stitch clock! I have seen all sizes of clock fixtures at the craft shop for very cheap! It seems like it would be really fun to create your own cross stitch backing with numbers and decoration, and then attach the fixture for the hands!

Happy Thursday everyone!
Last week for our Thursday Poll we took a look at the Draping Frame Tunic, and ended up choosing Ultra Violet as our favorite color for the top, with 205 votes! Wow!
This week I am still scoping out our cool new Riding Hood Convertible Tee – it can be styled in so many different ways! I love it! And I’m curious to know your favorite way to style it! Check out a few of the different ways below…
First have a look at it as a loose hooded tank top!

Next up is the shirt as a long and loose drapey tee!

Which way of styling the shirt is your favorite?

These wonderful colorful paintings are by the aptly named Julianna Bright! Such a perfect name for an artist who uses bright color! I’ve been browsing around her site all morning, getting my fill of her fun little people and their animal buddies… Check out her Etsy shop if you feel the need for a print!

I’ve been really enjoying the clever images of Sarah Illenberger. She does lots of different work for companies like Vanity Fair, NY Times and Nike, all of which is original and fun like the stuff shown above! Check out her website for more fun stuff.

These chunky felted bead necklaces are so cool! I love how they look, and you know they probably are fun to touch as well! Kleas made the ones shown above with her pre-school class, who then took the necklaces home to their mothers!
She put together some very nice how-to instructions for making the felted beads and the jewelry! It looks really easy and fun, check it out!
