egg carton lights

Do you like these pretty lights? They’re made from egg cartons! Apartment Therapy has some tips for making your own set. They would be perfect for an evening on the porch in the summertime, don’t you think?

What a creative way to repurpose what would otherwise be trash! And they can be recycled when they start to break down!

apple cozy

While I personally am not ready to drop 20$ for one of these little apple cozies, I do think they are a really cute and cool idea! No more bruises, I suppose. I love the leaf embellishment also!

I love this idea, but agree that they're expensive for apples. Could these possibly also be used to protect billiard balls?

there are free knit patterns for apple, pear and banana cozies at http://veganlunchbox.blogspot.com/2008/08/apple-cozy-pattern.html there's also a link to crochet patterns in the comments it reminds me that i've been meaning to make some for my friend for ages!

This video is just beautiful; it features stunning photos of Congolese women by photographer Finbarr O’Reilly. There are also a few words about their distinctive hairstyles. It’s interesting to see a little something about the women of Congo, since usually one only hears of the violence there.

I love this DIY jacket idea from BleachBlack! I like the grunge feel, and there are so many possibilities for making it to have your own unique flavor! Awesome!
Also, have you guys seen these house shoes from elephant and chickpea that they featured on Bloesem?

Ah! Love! I just wonder how sturdy the soles actually are, because I’d like to wear a pair out and about! They’re too cute to just wear at home!

Caroline -Apr 01, 2009, 6:00PM
Love the pointe shoe toe on the slippers!

It's like a smokey fairytale, you can make up a great magical story when you watch the picture. To another place, I agree!

Dressed in sheepskin coats and hats, locals in Nuanquan China celebrate the Lantern Festival each year by flinging molten iron at a wall to create beautiful showers of sparks. The tradition reportedly started 4 or 500 years ago when a blacksmith was too poor to buy fireworks to celebrate the festival. A little dangerous, but so so beautiful! Check it out!

The pictures above are from Refinery 29, which pointed out recently that a lot of menswear has been leaning toward the floral and pastel lately. I knew they were right as soon as I read it, since it brought to mind a different picture that I saw on Style Salvage about a month ago and saved…

Honestly, I like the trend! I’ve always liked men in any pastel color, and though I’m not sure about the shoes, I’ve liked all the floral styles I’ve seen on men as well.
But what I want to know is what you guys think! Do you like the pastel/floral menswear trend? Is the floral thing too much for you or the men you know? Do you love it?

Jadam -Jun 30, 2009, 11:18AM
I think it works fine as a button up under a jacket. Otherwise it is a bit much. No on the shoes and that hat.
Jimbo -Apr 04, 2009, 6:52PM
Trend????.... what are you talking about!?!? Guys have been wearing floral prints for years. Their isn't one guy I know that dosn't own a hawain shirt.

This amazing house was designed by Senosiain Arquitectos for a couple in Mexico City after they decided they wanted a house that looked like a snail shell! They now live there with their children. I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live in a house like that! I especially love the rainbow glass front window. For more detailed information about the house, and some more incredible pictures, see this page on DVICE.

cassette tape scarf

So, the sweet cassette tape art above has been around the internet enough lately that I’m pretty confident you guys have all seen it…
(If you haven’t, or haven’t had your fill, check out this page, which has a variety of the pieces, some of which you might not have seen.)
But look at this other cassette art I came across today…

A cassette tape scarf – pretty interesting right? I don’t know how long it would last being worn, but shoot, I’d wear it!
I wonder what we’ll do next with tapes!?

Omg. That is so cool! A lot of time must have been spent on that.
Courtney -Jul 28, 2009, 10:36PM
I LOVE this concept. Especially the scarf. Just saw some handmade leggings on LookBook that remind me of this chunky knit look. Maybe not so functional, but awesome nonetheless.

Peep making!

It’s almost time for Easter, which means it’s time to eat Peeps! Yum!
The Chicago Tribune has a neat slideshow of the Peeps factory that I enjoyed – you can check it out here. See a few of the shots below! (I found the cool swordfighting Peeps picture here.)

Peeps without sugar-coating look a little bit scary!
