I couldn’t resist sharing this adorable picture of baby Ruby with you! Ruby’s mother is Julie, our Email Support Supervisor at our customer service center in South Carolina. Ruby just turned 3 months old on Tuesday, and is all dressed up for the holidays! So cute!

chloe sevigny

Vain and Vapid recommended this interview with Chloe Sevigny on Missbehave, and I have to say, it’s a really great interview!
She tells what “pop” celebrity has a girl crush on her, talks about baby names, her view of Hollywood, and some stories her publicist might not like. And her hair looks awesome!

Today we visit the interesting desk of Lizzy, our senior graphic designer! The awesome book about the Fauves was a gift from Lizzy’s boss, Carrie.

Lizzy loves kitties, so they are very prominent in her desk decor. The girl in the picture with Elvis is Lizzy’s friend! They went to Memphis together and got an E-Cam, or Elvis Camera! Elvis is already on the film so all the pictures you take have Elvis in them with you!

On this little shelf is Lizzy’s favorite item on her desk – a teeny snowglobe with a (plastic) beetle in it! It even lights up! As for me, I’m partial to the doll dress.

Though most of us think the kitty in the corner is a little scary, Lizzy loves him! She tells me he is very happy, and is therefore screeching with joy!
Thanks for sharing Lizzy!

Many of you may already be familiar with the work of Yorkshire-born artist Jack Smith, who created the awesome pieces above, among many others. I love his style – abstract and colorful! Flowers Gallery in London is currently having a show of his work to celebrate his eightieth birthday, and to my delight, their site has a fantastic slide show featuring many of his pieces! Definitely worth checking out!

Going to be around south Philadelphia tonight or tomorrow night? B2 Cafe on Passyunk and Dickinson will be hosting a craft bazaar featuring the work of many different local artists, with wine and food to boot! Come by between 6 and 9pm tonight ot tomorrow night to check it out! It should be a blast!

i heart daily

We’re really excited about this new web site launched by a couple of Brooklyn girls that are involved in all that is cool. I Heart Daily is kind of a hip, more under-the-radar version of Daily Candy, or your other fav daily coolness update. Learn about new musicians, crafters, indie beauty brands, fashion and a bunch more.
I also love their about page! Anne and Melissa seem like a fun team, and I can’t wait to see more of their daily recommendations.

garland light

Tord Boontje is the creator of this delicate light, called the Garland Light. I’ve seen (and really liked) some of his work before, but this is just so eye-catching and natural-looking, I can’t get over it!

I couldn’t resist sharing this photo of our “pet wall” with you! One of our accessories designers got the idea to put pictures of all the pets belonging to girls in the accessories room up on the wall in the hallway, and soon it spread to include pictures of everyone’s pets! It’s especially fun to see pictures of everyone’s kitties, since they don’t get to come to work like the doggies do!

You might remember when we put up our FP Community Tree a while back. It includes a picture of each FP home office employee. Recently, it got updated for the holidays, and it now has a picture of each FP home office employee as a child! It is so much fun to see how everyone looked as a little one!

Our lobby has recently been updated for more holiday fun too! I am crazy about all the hanging lights and garlands! They are such eye-candy- our Visual Display Team did a great job! (Thank you!)

Ditto! I saw this in the store over the holidays and I wanted to take the whole store home. S'il vous plait (PLEASE) find out who and how they put these garlands and all the decorations together. Merci!
Anna McCaleb -Jan 04, 2009, 9:22PM
OKAY these garlands! WHERE WHERE WHERE can i find them! I am madly in love with them and i need need need them

At the start of the season, Free People and Urban Outfitters donated a bunch of hats, mittens, and scarves to Georgetown University Hospital Department of Pediatric Oncology and Hematology and to St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital. We received really sweet thank you notes from both hospitals. Georgetown shared a story with us that made us so happy!
On Halloween the clinic hosted a party and provided costumes for all the kids to wear. A fifteen-year-old girl with Acute Lymphoblastic Leukemia wanted to particpate, but wasn’t comfortable with any of the costumes. She picked out one of our hat and scarf sets that was bright purple with sequins and wore this during the party. She said she felt like a fashion model!
Check out how you can donate to Georgetown University Hospital or St. Jude Children’s Research Hospital.

i like it!

I found this site called goodsearch.com It is a search engine similar to google but you pick a charity to dontate to, and everytime you search for something goodsearch.com donates to your charity! They even have a toolbar you can download to your web browser. I thought you might like to post this up on the blog so everyone can donate stuff even all year round just by using a search engine. I specifically am donating to animal shelters but you can search through thousands of different charitys.

Aren’t these graphics so awesome?! I recently discovered the work of Copenhagen-based art and design studio Hvass&Hannibal, and I am loving the bright colors and fun shapes! I especially love the fish in the top picture, don’t you?

I love this! Is this the guy that did the Shins album art for Chutes Too Narrow?! I love that album :)

These gorgeous creations are the work of one of our accessories designers, Sarah! She has her own little jewelry business, Sarah Lewis Designs.
I asked Sarah to tell me a little bit about where she gets inspiration for her pieces and how she got started making jewelry. Here’s what she had to tell me about it:
I first started making jewelry when I was a kid, creating necklaces with beads and hemp and things. When I was 14, I learned how to blow glass, and I just fell in love with the art form. I am inspired by so many things, everything around me, especially nature – which is how I got into working with crystals and rocks. I just love gemstones, and when I see a gemstone I immediately envision ways that I would want it to adorn the body. For me, jewelry is like a small-scale sculpture that you can wear!
Be sure to check out Sarah Lewis Designs, as there are lots of fabulous pieces to be seen there! And the best part? A few of our stores will be carrying Sarah’s jewelry starting in a couple weeks, and in April, our catalog will be featuring and selling some of her jewelry too! Look forward to it!
