I am loving this densely layered folk-inpsired collage by Hilary Pecis. It makes me think of mountains and caves made from patchworked sweaters!
She currently has a show at Receiver Gallery in San Fransisco. The show is called The Paradigm Shift.
found via my love for you is a stampede of horses
I noticed this in one of the glass display cases at our company’s coffee shop. I have been thinking about it and ways for me to make one myself all day! Regular readers won’t be surprised, since they know my affinity for maps and map-inspired things! Still, I am so impressed! Someone put so much work into this – they even stitched in quite a few of the countries! So great…
I have been seeing vests everywhere the last few seasons, and I love it! We have come out with quite a few sweet little vests lately, and I’ve been just itching to get my hands on them!
Check out this cute Beaded Lace Vest! It also comes in lavender.
Shown below is our Velveteen Lead Vest, which also comes in bronze.
We also have a really cute Drippy Silk Vest! I love it in the taupe too.
My question to you is, which vest do you like best?
This book looks so beautiful! Deanne Cheuk illustrated this book called Mushroom Virus Girls: A Guide to the Identification and Study of Our Commoner Fungi with Special Emphasis on the Edible Varieties. You can see some of the amazing illustrations on Deanne’s web site. The book is sold out on the site, but you can still buy it on Amazon.
The cover is supposedly the world’s first fully embroidered linen cloth cover. I would probably want to take the book apart and frame all the artwork!
Thanks to design for mankind for the link:)
Don’t forget about our FP Style Event, which is going on right now!

I caught a couple shots of our Accessories Team working very hard this afternoon!
They look so cute!
To my delight, last night there appeared this little camper in our lobby! It was created by our display team to go along with our current outdoorsy-themed trends. The frame is made out of bamboo, and they enlisted the help of a local girl out of West Philly to create it! The binding for the joints of the frame is made from old bicycle tires! Other than the frame, everything else on or in the camper is made from paper or cardboard! It’s incredible, and totally adorable! It makes me want to climb right in…. :)
Today I indulged and did some browsing on theselby, where photographer Todd Selby shares intimate protraits of artists, designers, and such at home and work.
I LOVE seeing where these people spend their time and the objects they surround themselves with.
The photos above are some of my favorites. Links to more of the corresponding artists below:

Lately around the home office I’ve been noticing a new trend – everyone’s wearing menswear lately! It looks really great, and people are wearing it a number of different ways – check it out!

The other day I was walking through our cafeteria building and I saw this gorgeous dress! It just appeared somehow – I did some snooping and found out it was created by our sister brand Anthropologie…. Stunning!
Awesome! Tetris-shaped tiles for your floor or wall, in any colors you like!
