These stunning pieces are from a recent book illustrated by Kat MacLeod, called Bird. It apparently runs for $400, so I doubt I’ll ever get my hands on it, but hopefully more of the images from it will appear on the net over time so I will at least get to see a few of them! If they are anything like these, I know I will enjoy them!

WoW! these are gorgeous! I'm so happy you posted them since I can't afford the book either. xo~anisa http://www.makoollovesyou.com

Remember a little bit ago when I posted about the jewelry that our accessories designer, Sarah makes? Well, I am very excited to report that some of her pieces will be hitting our Paramus NJ, Short Hills NJ, and King of Prussia PA stores this week! Make sure to check them out if you plan on doing any after-Christmas shopping at Free People!

old wrist watches

I am having a great time looking at these antique wrist watches, which I found on oobject! Most of the ones I’ve shown here are from WWI, and were government issue. They started handing out wrist watches to soldiers so that they wouldn’t risk their lives fumbling around for a pocket watch, and the cool-looking grates over the face of the watches are to protect the glass from breaking. Though the grates have lost their functionality, I’d still love to have a watch with grating on the face. Would you?

crafty drink cozy

Chet and Dot makes these adorable little drink cozies out of old sweaters and such! I saw them on her blog, and can’t help wondering to myself- gosh why didn’t I think of that? I just love them! They can be found on her Etsy shop if you feel so inclined!

boot bandits


www.the2bandits.com from Lawnmower Sounds on Vimeo.
Boot bandits are perfect for dressing up any pair of boots. They are a woven band of fabric that adjusts to fit over the top of your boots, instantly adding color, pattern and detail to your outfit. The 2 Bandits are Erica Chan and Tamar Wider, two girls in NYC who want your boots to walk and dance:) Check out the cute video they made showing exactly how easy it is dress up your boots.
Get your bandits here!

So why didn't I think of this? it's a decorative band that goes around your boot to make your boots look different from everyone else? YES PLEASE. Are there more styles?
Melisa -Dec 23, 2008, 6:09PM
Can I get the ones in the video????? I need Bandits. Why didn't I think of that? What a perfect way to funk up your outfit. Does anyone know if they are in stores or just online? I want to them on my boots.

Word has it that this floating building is not photo-shopped, but is in fact real and exists in Ukraine! I’ll let you decide for yourself. Still, a very cool picture, right?

For the life of me I can’t remember where I originally saw these book pages, but they are so darn interesting! I think the second picture would be really cool as the graphic on a tee-shirt. Like maybe take all the “R” stuff and put it on a shirt. What do you think? See more pages from the book here – seriously go look, they’re really neat!

surreal collages

There’s something about these collages by Joseba Elorza that I find really intriguing, and not just because I enjoy surrealism. (Though that’s probably a lot of it.) Wouldn’t you love to be that little boy standing over the pine forest? Check out Joseba’s site for more.

jingle bell bracelet

I really like this bracelet that was spotted on Dries Van Noten’s Spring runway! It’s so cute and festive – but even better is that Carbon Couture has created an awesome DIY version, with step-by-step instructions so it’s really easy to make! See how cute their version is below – I kind of like it even better than the Dries Van Noten one! Click here to go to the instructions!

I was browsing Penguin & Fish and saw these stunning typography works by Yulia Brodskaya… They’re so inspiring! I can’t imagine the work it must take to create them! You can see more gorgeous pieces on her site.

It took Eric Tabuchi four years to collect the right pictures to complete this truck alphabet. Totally worth it, but I’m wondering, how did he ever find the Q? And I love the lower-case F. He’s working on another truck alphabet currently, and you can see what he has gotten so far on his site.
