fire-tagging

Can you believe this graffiti? It’s called ‘fire-tagging’ and the way it’s apparently done is the artist writes their signature in lighter fluid and then sets the area aflame. Well for a moment anyway, presumably they put the fire right back out, he he! It looks awesome! Reminds me of those high-school days playing with hair-spray and a lighter on the pavement…

This is a great way to inspire little arsonists to burn down buildings.

Okay, so there is no way I could have come up with a post for these two shots, but I just couldn’t resist sharing them with you, so we have this random post!
First of all, this tax-form dress is awesome! Read more about the creator here.

That, and I’m in love with this little guy…

Isn’t he sweet? Our graphic designer Kevin found this little cross-eyed Brussels Griffon on Flickr, with Keeping one eye on you as the caption. What a doll!!

another great cord idea

You might remember the awesome electrical cords made to look like vines that I posted a while back – well these sweet beaded cords are another great option! The ones shown above are made by Nathalie Costes, and they’ve got me wondering how difficult it would be to make my own! And I’ve got to add, I love those big chunky beads! So awesome…

Ah! How badly do you want one of these relief prints by Bryan Nash Gill? Amazing – I agree with Swissmiss when she says she would like to have one decorating her home…

I like your blog^^ The relief prints are really stunning, at first glance I thought it was a fingerprint in a strange form :)) Lilly :)

This installation by Marieke van der Bruggen is really interesting, and really pretty! All the hanging twigs, branches and leaves are made out of colored glucose – in other words, they’re basically hanging lollipops, and visitors to the installation are allowed to pick of parts of it and eat them. The show doesn’t open until next week though, and to boot it’s in Milan. But, if you do happen to be in Milan, you can check it out! It’s the Jewels and Joules show, being presented by the Design Connection Brainport and Design Academy Eindhoven. Sweet – literally!

birdies and treats

I love these illustrations by Kate Wilson! I love that they all feature birdies and sweets, but I love the cute little sayings that go with them even more! Too adorable! Kate also has a fun blog that’s worth checking out, Peonies & Polaroids.

indoor slide

Isn’t this like every kid’s fantasy? I think if I had a slide next to the stairs in my house I would only slide down to the lower level. This picture is part of a slideshow on Cookie Magazine’s website, featuring a green home built by a British architect. When making the plans for his house, he let his children have a say in what they would like as well, which is how he ended up with a slide by the stairs! I love it!
