These paper birthday flower rings by Tithi Kutchamuch and Nutre Arayavanish are so clever! Each ring resembles the birthday flower for one of the 12 months of the year, and you can get them all, or individually as a birthday card for your friend! I love it!

From when I was born to when I turned eleven, I had a mickey mouse baby blanket with pictures of the Disney characters on it. I love it so much and would carry it with me everywhere. I would do everything with it. When my mom told me it was smelly and that I should wash it, I would always cry and would stay up at night because I didn't have my blankie with me. crzytess77@gmail.com

My first stuffed animal was a brown dog named Florence. It was a pretty fancy name for a pretty fancy dog.... or so I thought. I took him EVERYWHERE.... church, the mall, family trips... I'd even try to smuggle him in my backpack so I wouldn't be without him in school. I carried him well beyond the days where his felt ears began to rip off, his stitching began to pull and seperate, his fur became matted... He was literally a mess, but I loved him anyway. Florence is still around these days, but I leave him at home. Maybe one day I'll pass him on to someone who will love him as much as I did. XABrokenSpellX@aol.com

Come to Kahn Park at 11th and Pine Street tonight and see an awesome show by the West Philadelphia Orchestra! Their music is really fun, boot-stomping good, inspired the music of Eastern Europe. Check out the video below for a sampling!

How pretty is the birthday cake Tai Shan got for his birthday?! It’s that lovely pink color because one of the main ingredients in it is shredded beets! The only other ingredients were ice, beet juice, and bamboo. What a cake!

These beautiful images of waves are by Japanese photographer Syoin Kajii. Syoin is a Buddhist monk residing at a seaside temple on Sado Island, where he works on his photography as well. His photos from this gorgeous set were recently featured in Foam Photography Magazine. I would love to get lost in any of them!

I love the simplicity of these coffee-themed illustrations by Jenny Kim! On her site she has a couple photos that show how the pieces would look as a wall mural or on a coffee cup, and they’re awesome! Her paintings are very good as well; check them out on her site.

I don’t know if any of you like music by M83, but you should! They have a really cool electronic and sort of ambient sound.
If you are in New York City tonight and looking for something cool to do, M83 is going to be playing at the World Financial Center Plaza at 7pm, and the word is that it’s free! Awesome!
For now, check out the amazing music video for M83′s song We Own The Sky. I’ve been grooving on it all morning…

denim floor mat

I love the look of this floor mat, and to my delight, Instructables has easy directions for making your own – out of the old seams and waistbands from jeans! What a smart idea!

Courtney -Jul 31, 2009, 2:29PM
This is pretty neat. I think I'd probably use some sort of beaded or other fringe on the edges though. Neat idea.
