cross stitch clock!

thrifted-embroidered%2Bclock%2Beagle.jpg
This clock is so awesome! Doe-C-Doe found it when she was thrift shopping for only $5! This is such an inspirational find – it occurs to me how easy it would be to make your own cross stitch clock! I have seen all sizes of clock fixtures at the craft shop for very cheap! It seems like it would be really fun to create your own cross stitch backing with numbers and decoration, and then attach the fixture for the hands!

Check out the shirt that Chictopia user Krly is wearing! Am I crazy or is that another illustration by Cassandra Rhodin? Great shirt either way…

Happy Thursday everyone!
Last week for our Thursday Poll we took a look at the Draping Frame Tunic, and ended up choosing Ultra Violet as our favorite color for the top, with 205 votes! Wow!
This week I am still scoping out our cool new Riding Hood Convertible Tee – it can be styled in so many different ways! I love it! And I’m curious to know your favorite way to style it! Check out a few of the different ways below…
First have a look at it as a loose hooded tank top!

Next up is the shirt as a long and loose drapey tee!

Well? Gosh now that I’m looking at them all I am not sure which style is my most favorite… I like them all!
Which way of styling the shirt is your favorite?

These wonderful colorful paintings are by the aptly named Julianna Bright! Such a perfect name for an artist who uses bright color! I’ve been browsing around her site all morning, getting my fill of her fun little people and their animal buddies… Check out her Etsy shop if you feel the need for a print!

I’ve been really enjoying the clever images of Sarah Illenberger. She does lots of different work for companies like Vanity Fair, NY Times and Nike, all of which is original and fun like the stuff shown above! Check out her website for more fun stuff.

These lovely lights are by Bodo Sperlein. I love the soft shapes! No doubt they are far and away out of my price range, but a girl can dream!

These chunky felted bead necklaces are so cool! I love how they look, and you know they probably are fun to touch as well! Kleas made the ones shown above with her pre-school class, who then took the necklaces home to their mothers!
She put together some very nice how-to instructions for making the felted beads and the jewelry! It looks really easy and fun, check it out!

These great fashion illustrations are by Monsieur Qui. Aren’t they cool?! I really like them, especially the watercolor accents – very inspiring! Be sure to check out Monsieur Qui’s blog too, as he keeps some work there that can’t be seen on his website!

I love all these animal charms by Happy Owl Glassworks! There are so many different animals I could never pick one; they’re all too good!
I can’t believe you can get them as night lights, too – that is so awesome! Check out their site here.

by the light of the gourd

I love these pretty and original light shades made by StudioTempera! They are gourds! StudioTempera, which is based in Turkey, hollows them out, decorates them, and then pokes little holes in them to be filled with beads for colored light, or nothing for normal light! They are so beautiful!
Apartment Therapy found these!
