The author of Mission Mission spotted this little installation attached to the wall of the building across the street from her/his apartment. I love it – I’d like to imagine some little person actually does live in there! See more pictures here.
Believe it or not, this vase is also a working faucet! It was designed by David Vercelli for the Italian bathroom company Hego Waterdesign. I love the look and the thought behind this faucet, but I have to agree with Apartment Therapy when they say that they aren’t sure they’d be too keen to drink from it. Still, what a neat design!
It’s a real pleasure to announce the two randomly chosen winners of yesterday’s giveaway!
Congratulations to Amanda!
I plan on getting more creative with the old things in my closet I’ve forgotten about. Scissors, bleach and bright colored dyes!!
Congratulations to Hilary Kate!
I’m so excited, I love spring and all the new delicious clothes I get to bring into my everyday life. I’ve gotten some awesome big and small flowy hats and dresses that i can’t wait to wear.
Hooray! Thank you all so much for participating! It’s always so much fun to see all your answers, and especially fun to read your thoughts on spring style this time around!
And if you didn’t win, don’t lose hope! As always, there are more giveaways close on the horizon…
I am so inspired by this beautiful crochet blanket from the ladies of The Purl Bee. I love the idea to just make one giant Granny Square as a blanket. The colors are gorgeous too! But the best part is that they have a really good tutorial for making Granny Squares! Now I just need to graduate to making giant Granny Squares.
Hello and and welcome again to our Thursday Poll!
Last week we voted on short skirts, and chose Bindi’s Studded Skirt as our current favorite!
This week I want to ask you about tunics (and dresses that can sort of double as tunics) since I have been hoping to add a few more to my wardrobe shortly! Check out of few of the ones we currently have in our collection below.
First the Santa Cruz River Tunic is shown below in grey.
Next is our 60 Miles North Dress in eggplant.
One of our former design team employees, Michelle, recently dug up our Art Director Doub’s glove project from many years ago, and posted it on her blog! You can see it above, it’s pretty fabulous – I couldn’t resist sharing it with you guys as well!
Here’s a little note from Doub about where the inspiration for this project came from:
Well what became fascinating for me when I started the glove project was how elaborately detailed each pair of gloves were. And with each glove it’s delicate little details really dictated each design. I had become obsessed with gloves and was scouring the city for them mainly for the strange need to cut one of the pair up into a silhouette. I still have such an appreciation for the amazing craftsmanship and design of gloves.
It really is a very inspiring project! And speaking of inspiration, our friend Michelle’s blog is called Inspiration Resource, and aptly so! You should definitely check it out if you feel so inclined…
