antique lotto game

I just love this gorgeous antique lotto game that Black White Yellow found! The wood tiles are so cool, and I really like the font that the numbers are printed in! What a find! It reminds me that I’m way overdue for another thrift store shopping trip…

I found the original music video for The Beach Boys’ song Wouldn’t It Be Nice and it makes me so happy, just like the song! It’s really cute and it looks like they’re having so much fun! The perfect song for a pleasant Saturday…

These amazing beeswax sculptures were created by Hilary Berseth, with the help of many bees! To get the bees to build their combs in the shapes he would like, he constructs basic frameworks out of wire and wax, and then puts them into a closed box in the spring. After that the bee colonies take over, filling out his templates with wax cells, then stuffing them with honey. Check out NYMagazine for more information and a really nice little slideshow about it!
Via For me, for you.

I believe bees are the treasure of nature.

As Albert Einstein once said, “If all the Bees were gone, humans would be gone within 4 years.” (No Bees, No Pollination) I believe bees are the treasure of nature. I would support bee Art/farming any day of the week. None the less the installation is beautiful!

Today I discovered a really cool room in 543 that I had no idea existed before! I am so excited to share it with you! I was very lucky that I happened to wander into the sweater designers’ room with my camera when I did, because I bumped into Lindsey, one of our designers, who asked me, “Have you ever seen the yarn room? I’m heading that way.” Heck no! I hadn’t even heard of it, and it is filled with things of interest!

Welcome to the yarn room!

Natasha is already working hard on one of the knitting machines! This particular machine is a domestic knitting machine. There are also industrial types, one of which you can see a little bit, behind Natasha. Both types are used in our factories. They are amazingly faster than hand knitting! Our sweater designers use them to create prototype designs right here at the home office!
I can’t wait to see what Natasha makes with this cool sweater cloth she’s created!
Meanwhile, Lindsey is quickly threading another machine and beginning her work!
In this picture, Lindsey is getting ready to pull the handle toward us – this will create a row of stitches.
…Tinkering with a couple of the stitches.
After just a few minutes, she has knitted quite a bit!
It’s lucky Natasha and Lindsey know what they’re doing, because these cool instructions posted on the wall might be hard for some of us to read!
Free People and Anthropologie share the yarn room, and one of our friends Hani from Anthro here too! She is working with another cool machine, which winds loose yarn onto a bobbin really really fast!

All these animals were created using the land masses of the Earth, and without changing the shapes or dimensions! They’re a little rough, but I like them! Does anyone know who did them? The site where I saw them doesn’t say…

I would have never ever thought of using pop can tabs to make clothes, but Tiffany of The Art of Can Tabistry sure did! The corset made of can tabs is actually really cool! I’d totally wear it around, but I think I’d pick different colors for the yarn. Above is Tiffany’s mother modeling a hat, corset, and shoes made of can tabs! Holy cow! I don’t think I’ll ever look at tabs the same way. There are a few tutorials on The Art of Can Tabistry too, so if you’ve got a bunch of pop can tabs laying around…

The Corset is so cool! What a great idea!

das parkhotel

I’ll bet you never thought to spend the night in a renovated sewage pipe! However, at Das Parkhotel in Austria you can cozy up and spend the night (or a few) along the banks of the Danube in one of these well-decorated (and clean) pipe rooms. There are some more pictures on the hotel’s site. I’d totally try it! Would you?

Priscilla -Feb 19, 2009, 10:40PM
They remind me of capsule hotels in Japan. Except this is much more open in a sense. Anyways, it looks like tons of fun! :D
Ms K -Feb 19, 2009, 5:43PM
This is awesome. If I happen to bicycle along the Danube this summer (which I recommend as it's great) I will totally try it!

Wow! I can’t believe we’ve reached poll 30! It doesn’t seem that long ago that we had our first poll!
Last week we thought about which current Free People tights we like, and like a couple of weeks ago, the vote was really close! The winner with 149 votes was the Pondi Cherry Paisley Tight, followed closely by the Courtneyrose Footless Tights which got 143 votes!
This week I wanted to ask you about tube tops, because I can already tell that this spring they are going to be a really prominent style! We have so many uber-cute tube tops right now, and we’re putting more up on the site every day! For now, check out the tops below- I’m wondering which style is your favorite!
First up is our Tangled Tuscon Tube in coral.

Next is the Solid Seamless Tube in grey.

Now check out our Starry Night Tube in pimento!
Next is the Solid Lace Bandeau Tube in storm.
Finally, shown below is the Sunburst Tie Dye Top in purple combo!
So which of these tube top styles do you like the most?

jaranian -Feb 22, 2009, 12:03PM
"Solid Lace Bandeau Tube" is the most unique, and original piece FP can offer in this selection. However based on the type of customer I believe they will traditionally choose, "Sunburst Tie Dye Top" and lastly "Tangled Tuscon Tube". As a personal interest I would love to see more bandaged items. But I do believe the non-clingy items are going to have a long succession.

art cars

Just for fun, I thought I’d post these pictures of random art cars. They have been giving me so much inspiration lately! What do you guys think?


Via. Yes, those are cameras…

Good Girl Gone Blog -Feb 19, 2009, 2:16PM
So every summer in Baltimore, they have this big festival called "Artscape." One of my favorite parts is the decorated cars :)
futurelint -Feb 19, 2009, 1:02PM
OOh, they do an Art Car Parade here in Minneapolis every year! I love it!

sushi again!

I know I’ve already talked about sushi a few times lately, but I totally love this pillow! Who knew shrimp could look so darn comfy?! See the sushi pillow on it’s own site here, and explore it a little bit to see other kinds of sushi as pillows! Hehe!
Via art esprit.

As many of you have already picked up from reading this blog, Urban Outfitters Inc. owns quite a few buildings in the Navy Yard, one that houses Free People, another that houses Anthropologie, one for Urban, and others that I don’t really even know what we use them for or which buildings they are.
One of the most important buildings we have is Building 543, which is shared by the three brands, and is also open to the public. 543 houses our restaurant/cafeteria, gym, yoga studio, coffee shop, mail room, I.T. Department, Production Department and the list goes on and on!
Many of us eat lunch at Shop 543, the cafeteria restaurant, almost every day! (Myself included!) So today I thought it would be fun to take you on a little tour of Shop 543 and show you where we eat lunch!

Welcome to Shop 543! Building 543 is very big and very open, so these pretty curtains act as sort of walls for the cafeteria. To the right you can see someone reading the very large menu board.

Here is our giant menu board! The Shop 543 employees carefully write down the specials for us on here each day.
I am immediately side-tracked by the dessert table – look at these delicious vegan red cupcakes! Our dessert chefs make the prettiest little tasty desserts ever!
Here is some sushi doing a very good job of advertising itself! Yum!
My friend Sara scopes out the soups to see if anything catches her interest…
I have finally settled into the sandwich line, after much consideration. Everything looks so yummy!
Some people we know are in the sandwich line too! Hey Ryanne, Lauren and Kris! See the little cup in Lauren’s hand? Those are there so that we can try some soup and see if we like it before we buy it! I wonder if she liked it?
Chef John prepares my sandwich with the ultimate care and attention to detail.
Hooray! He did such a good job! It looks great! (It tasted great too!)
My friends Caroline and Sara waited very patiently for me. Notice all the official-looking business-people behind them? There are quite a few other companies based in the Navy Yard, and many people that work for those companies like to eat here too! I can’t blame them! :)
This picture is not so great – I was attempting to show you how great our view is! We can see the mighty Delaware river right out the cafeteria windows, and lots of huge neat ships too! Unfortunately today is a bit rainy, and so the river didn’t lend itself to photography so much… Believe it or not, this was the best shot!
And now we’re leaving Shop 543! At least in this shot you can see how huge the windows are! Thanks for coming to lunch with me! ;)
And don’t forget, Building 543 is open to the public – so if you are ever in Philadelphia and you want to see some awesome ships and eat yummy food from Shop 543, come on down to the Navy Yard!

Without a doubt Area 543 is one of the most unique places to dine in Philly! It is a cavernous recycled machine shop with tremendous floor to ceiling windows that afford tremendous views of the river and its ever changing scenarios. Inside is a funky ever changing collection of ecletic decor reflecting the uber hip setting that is Urban Outfitters.But I digress. The food is really the main attraction here ranging from a full selection of vegan friendly dishes to an ever revolving carousel of specials ranging from Thai chili braised short ribs to terrific fish tacos . They also feature at least three freshly made soups daily as well as a grill , stir fry station and sushi bar! My fellow foodies and I agree that Area 543 at the Navy Yard is noe of the neatest places in the city to do lunch!
Abby -Feb 25, 2009, 1:33PM
my friend and i have wanted to go check out your building and get lunch for ages! this makes me want to go even more!
