EricGjerge has an amazing set on Flickr where he has uploaded images from Owen Jones’ book The Grammar of Ornament. I could look at all the prints and patterns forever – there is so much inspiration on each page! Check out the whole set for many more awesome pictures like the ones above, in bigger sizes too!

This book was hugely important for me at one point. If you like this, look into Taschen's massive The World of Ornament. It is huge and comes with digital versions of every page.

i need this

This nail-polish bottle design is so darn smart! I have needed a bottle like this for years! Plus, the word is that Karpati polish is free from toluene, formaldehyde and dibutyl phthalate – some of the more nasty chemicals usually found in nail-polishes. Sign me up!

This would be a fabulous favor for a bridal shower...possibly as a part of a goodie bag along with au de toilete, a great scarf, etc. Love it!

Nope, this flower isn’t rotting, that’s how it grows! It’s the Trichosanthes, a flowering plant native to southeast Asia.
I came across a funny little article about odd flowers on Metafilter, and saw some really unique flowers like these:

These hanging lovelies are a type of Bolivian Fuschia.

These vintage Smokey the Bear nature posters are great! Wouldn’t you love to have one for your walls? Amy at Apartment Therapy was able to find one on Ebay after a little bit of searching, but for now, get bigger computer versions here.

My boyfriends mom has the whole collection of these! Her brother found them in their parents basement after they passed away and gave them to her.

Flickr user Straatis has a really interesting collection of photos of New York City in the 1940′s. There is something so amazing about a photograph from the past, and actually seeing what was like 70 years ago! Not to mention seeing the Big Apple 70 years ago! Check out the set if you’ve got a little bit of time!

I love paperdolls, so as you might expect, I love these fun fashion paperdolls! I Love Mel has created paperdolls of supermodels Agyness Deyn and Kate Moss, as well as one of British pop-star Cheryl Cole. So fun! You can get a better look at the paperdolls here, and buy one if you feel so inclined. If that’s not enough Kate Moss for you, they also have Kate Moss coloring books!

I’m loving Leontine Greenberg‘s work right now! Her little birdie paintings are so whimsical and sweet! The bottom one in particular puts me in mind of Dr. Seuss! Check out her blog and Flickr for more watercolor goodness.

Many of you may have already seen photos of the fantastic hats at Royal Ascot last week, but I couldn’t resist posting just a few! If you haven’t seen any of the pictures yet, there are good slideshows here, here, and here! You should totally check them out – as you can tell from the sampling above, the hats were outrageous, wonderful, and rather inspiring!

These portraits by Laura Adel Johnson are awesome! Why have I never thought to create pictures with tiny holiday lights? I’m kind of amazed at how much detail comes through, too. Check out Laura’s blog for pictures of a few more pieces.
