glorious eggs

Franc Grom uses a little tiny electric drill to put literally thousands of holes in real egg shells. Fragile and amazing – he generally puts between 2,500 and 3,500 holes in each egg!

Under the names Lizette Greco or grecolaborativo, the Greco family of southern California create these awesome stuffed animals! Using the drawings of their son and daughter, Mom and Dad create the plushies, representing the drawings as accurately as possible. It’s a family collaboration! They make up little stories for each of the animals too! You can see everything they have made right here, and if you like something so much you want to have it for yourself, they also have a little shop!

I’ve always wanted to learn French, but highschool didn’t teach me much. I think I’m learning more from reading these French fashion blogs!
A lot of the entries are translated in English, so you can go back and forth, reading a sentence in French, and then in English. Gradually, you’ll pick up the meanings of words, and you’re on your way!
Here are two that I have been reading recently.
the cherry blossom girl
le blog de betty
Anybody else have some suggestions??

Give this video a spin! :)
I already loved this song, but I just saw the video for it today, and I love it! It’s so cute and kind of retro looking…

If you’re looking for a good browse this afternoon, I strongly urge you to check out Rachel Papo’s website. All the above photos belong to the Israel-raised photographer, and her website holds many more delicious photos. The way she captures people is mesmerizing.

I’m loving this design for the Shanghai Expo 2010 by Polish architects Wojciech Kakowski, Natalia Paszkowska and Marcin Mostafa. The design is inspired by Polish folk art paper cutouts.
There seems to be some controversy in the comments on Dezeen regarding how or if the physical building will turn out. I personally just enjoy the concept and the images!
thanks to black eiffel for the link:)

I am crazy for these funky glass earrings made by OddGlass! Check out their Etsy shop if you feel so inclined…

You can see a much bigger version here.
This intricate cross stitch was created by RubyKhan, who got her inspiration from Craig Robinson’s Minipop drawings on Flip Flop Flyin’.
Go here for a little guide telling who each person is on the sampler – I found Hugh Hefner and the Royal Tenenbaums on my own, but I needed a little help on some others! She also has a ton more awesome pictures!
So cool!
