Tune in tomorrow for the punchline!
Anyone care to guess?
Yum! They look so pretty though, I almost wouldn’t be able to eat one if I had it!
These cupcakes, or rather, cuppacakes, are created by Wondermilk Bakery in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. All these gorgeous pictures are from their site.
Bloesem recently visited their actual shop in Kuala Lumpur, which looks so awesome! Be sure to check out her post here for some cool pictures of the store!
Looks like my own chances of visiting Wondermilk at home are pretty slim – but now I have some pretty sweet cupcake decorating ideas!
I’ve seen a few amazing artists working with paper cuts, but none are as clever and witty as Robert Ryan. You can own his book This Is for You for a small price, or one of his original screenprints from his etsy store. Check out Robert Ryan’s web site and read his blog (which is still updated once and a while even though he’s on holiday).
This morning I wandered into the Display Team’s room, and found them working on this sweet little project!
Turns out they are thinking of creating big rugs to hang on the walls in the stores. (Which would be awesome.)
So today they have been creating lots of little mini-rugs, to try out different techniques and see what looks best and allows for the most detail.
They are so cute! Next time I wander into that room, you can bet I’m going to be asking for rug-making lessons… ;)
I found a link to this in the archives of a blog last week (sorry, I can’t remember where!) I loved the image above, the fabric books of an Italian manufacturer, Mantero.
The Herald Tribune featured the photo accompanying an article titled The Globalization of Fabric. Check it out to learn a little about the difference in the quality of cloth used by some of the brands you would find at your local shopping mall versus those used in the world of luxury fashion. The story also explains some of the countries that supply the luxury market, and the types of fabric they specialize in.
Free People dogs, Porter and Agnes, are shown above enjoying the shade at the Employee Appreciation party last week! You may remember Agnes (right) from when she was featured in a Free People doggy profile a while back. She and Porter were tied to a tree together at the party and they just loved it! They are best friends!
I also really wanted to show you this awesome cake that Magnolia Bakery in New York City made for our catalog shoot last week! It was so cute, I couldn’t resist sharing!
Last month, we opened our second New York City store, at 1319 3rd Avenue!
We have been so excited about it!
Everyone who had a part in helping open up this store did such a fantastic job- the store is incredible! Just have a look at these photos for proof! I especially am in love with the cash-register counter…
If you find yourself in NYC, please, come visit us!
How incredible?! Jennifer Marsh was sick and tired of staring at this eyesore of an abandoned gas station and decided to take matters into her own hands. She brought together a group of international artists and U.S. school children to help her craft the covering for every inch of the old Citgo including the lights, the pumps, and the signs. Crochet, knit, patch, and stitch!

I was browsing around Design*Sponge this morning, and came across an interesting post featuring designer David Stark. The post discussed David’s incredible job planning and creating a benefit event for The Robin Hood Foundation, (see picture below, and the D*S post for more pictures,) but one thing lead to another and I ended up on David’s site, which is where I found this video! It’s long but doesn’t seem long – I could watch for hours, it’s very mesmerizing! Enjoy!
