This video is so funny and cool! It’s an old clip from the 1930′s, in which a few fashion designers predicted what they thought people would be wearing in the future! For being so far back as the 30′s, their predictions weren’t totally off base, I thought. Enjoy!
Frieda Gossett dyes, treats, and hand-stamps designs onto leather before turning it into various creatures. I can’t imagine how long it must take to hand-stamp each little detail into the leather! It’s got to be quite a process! Totally worth it though, these animals are just amazing! I’m especially impressed with the scales on the hammerhead – wow!
This crazy concrete, called Solid Poetry and designed by Frederik Molenschot and Susanne Happle, shows a pretty design whenever it gets wet, only to have it disappear again once the concrete is dry! I love it! I wish all sidewalks were made with this concrete!

Due in part to her fascination with the stage shows she saw as a girl in which the animals would come on stage with little outfits on, designer Hildegard Bergbauer, who usually designs for women, has started making Dirndl dresses for horses! The horse looks so cute in her dress! Hee hee! Check out Oddly Enough Blog for more.
I absolutely adore this editorial from Cream Magazine! It was photographed by Macushla Burke, and the wonderful illustrations on top, the birds and such, are by artist KellySmith. I saw them on KnightCat and I keep going back to look at them more – they’re so inspiring!
These photographs may not seem like much, until you realize that the subject is the sky at varying stages of sunset! What an awesome idea! Gorgeous too. They’re by Ann Woo – check out her site here. Via & via.

If you’ve visited Philly, or live here, you may already be familiar with the City of Philadelphia Mural Arts Program, which is responsible for helping Philly be the city with the most murals in the USA – we have more than 2,700 – covering everything from famous residents to jeep parts. The festive trucks shown above are part of one of the Mural Arts Program’s latest projects. Partnering with Philadelphia University’s Design Center, together they wrapped 10 of the city’s garbage & recycling trucks in these funky all-over prints! They’ve been doing the rounds with the rest of the trucks since Earth Day, and the other day I saw one on my street! It sounds silly but I was excited! I think next they should wrap all the rest of the trucks…

This clock is so awesome! Doe-C-Doe found it when she was thrift shopping for only $5! This is such an inspirational find – it occurs to me how easy it would be to make your own cross stitch clock! I have seen all sizes of clock fixtures at the craft shop for very cheap! It seems like it would be really fun to create your own cross stitch backing with numbers and decoration, and then attach the fixture for the hands!
