I saw this video on Yatzer, whose post about it is very informative. I just want you to watch the video, because it’s so cool!

Boy, wouldn’t you love to show up to someone’s party in that dress?!

Loving this candy corn soap from Smoky Mountain Scents on Etsy! Found it on Etsy’s Halloween Gift Guide. Check it out for a lot more spooky handmade gifts!

Halloween in Philadelphia always brings talk of the Eastern State Penitentiary, a creepy old historical prison where they do a haunted house every year.
Right now you can also view an exhibit called Ghost Cats by Linda Brenner. The work consists of a series of white cat sculptures, representing the colony of cats that lived on the prison grounds until the closing in 1971.
The photos are by Freddy Sarabia on JPG

Eastern State Penitentiary is one of my favorite places to photograph. I hope that people enjoy my Ghost Cat pictures. Thanks for the post.

This last week in Philadelphia it finally started to get genuinely cold outside, and I imagine it has probably gotten at least a little bit cooler everywhere else too! With the cold weather comes outerwear in various guises, and there are quite a few different ways of keeping warm!
One way to keep warm is by wearing a cute coat, like our Parker Plaid Overcoat, shown here in charcoal.

You can also wear a nice thick hoodie, like the We The Free Shining Star Hoodie shown below.

Another cozy option is a warm sweater, like the Walk in the Park Sweater Coat, which is shown below in spruce heather.

So how do you like to keep warm?

crystal chair

I saw these ethereal pictures of Tokujin Yoshioka‘s exhibition in Tokyo on Lark About, and though his natural crystal chair is amazing, what I was really taken with was the crystal-like and smokey stuff hanging from the ceiling! It looks so pretty! Tokujin has more info about the exhibition on his website, and I found a really cute interview with him right here on DesignBoom!

Do you believe there’s treasures in the ocean? This video by Angus and Julia Stone is so cute. The paper marionettes remind me of our blog header! Have you ever clicked on the curtain tassel? Try it out!

Scrabble Bench

scrabble_furniture_3.jpg
I love these benches that look like scrabble trays, with pillow letters! They remind me of playing scrabble with my parents as a kid, and losing terribly, haha! The pillow letters would be fun by themselves too! The benches were designed and created by Stephen Reed for the lobby of a company in London. When I was browsing his site, I also saw these really cool alphabet paperclips! A very fun idea!

I’ve posted one of Ann Wood’s castles and a boat before, but this one was made for Halloween! Ann constructed this cardboard wonder for the window at the Lower East Side shop Johnson (you can see it in person until Halloween).
Check out her blog for some detail shots and to hear about the hidden ghosts and enchanted horse!

sculptural crochet

I really loved these ideas about the sculptural nature of crochet. Wunderkammer on SuperNaturale explores how crochet stitches are not unlike pixels in the way that they are individual elements making up the whole. The artist also points out how technical or organic a crochet can be.

I really love the “CURVE + DECREASE” specimen. That says it all for me!

Mark Handforth

I wish this was one of the walls in my living room. Awesome!
This sculpture was created by Mark Handforth of Miami Florida.
