Dressed in sheepskin coats and hats, locals in Nuanquan China celebrate the Lantern Festival each year by flinging molten iron at a wall to create beautiful showers of sparks. The tradition reportedly started 4 or 500 years ago when a blacksmith was too poor to buy fireworks to celebrate the festival. A little dangerous, but so so beautiful! Check it out!
The pictures above are from Refinery 29, which pointed out recently that a lot of menswear has been leaning toward the floral and pastel lately. I knew they were right as soon as I read it, since it brought to mind a different picture that I saw on Style Salvage about a month ago and saved…
Honestly, I like the trend! I’ve always liked men in any pastel color, and though I’m not sure about the shoes, I’ve liked all the floral styles I’ve seen on men as well.
But what I want to know is what you guys think! Do you like the pastel/floral menswear trend? Is the floral thing too much for you or the men you know? Do you love it?
This amazing house was designed by Senosiain Arquitectos for a couple in Mexico City after they decided they wanted a house that looked like a snail shell! They now live there with their children. I can’t even imagine what it must be like to live in a house like that! I especially love the rainbow glass front window. For more detailed information about the house, and some more incredible pictures, see this page on DVICE.
So, the sweet cassette tape art above has been around the internet enough lately that I’m pretty confident you guys have all seen it…
(If you haven’t, or haven’t had your fill, check out this page, which has a variety of the pieces, some of which you might not have seen.)
But look at this other cassette art I came across today…
A cassette tape scarf – pretty interesting right? I don’t know how long it would last being worn, but shoot, I’d wear it!
I wonder what we’ll do next with tapes!?
It’s almost time for Easter, which means it’s time to eat Peeps! Yum!
The Chicago Tribune has a neat slideshow of the Peeps factory that I enjoyed – you can check it out here. See a few of the shots below! (I found the cool swordfighting Peeps picture here.)
Peeps without sugar-coating look a little bit scary!
I recently saw these cuddly crochet pals by GourmetAmigurumi and I can’t get over the little details! I love their expressions and clothing and even their little eyes! Definitely check out GourmetAmigurumi’s blog, as she posts lots of her work in progress which is cool to see, as well as patterns and tips!
Today the sweater designers are using some of their color scrap bins, and they have them laying out and looking very tempting! They are sorted by color, and have the feel of a very pretty mess! I’m quite inspired…
