These portraits by Laura Adel Johnson are awesome! Why have I never thought to create pictures with tiny holiday lights? I’m kind of amazed at how much detail comes through, too. Check out Laura’s blog for pictures of a few more pieces.

Skip Disneyworld. Go to Huntington Gardens in LA. I went there when I was in Los Angeles visiting our Free People stores last week. It is a beautiful cactus garden and greenhouse. Definitely worth visiting.
How delicious do these chocolate banana pops look?! I’m getting ready to try and make some! Katie Goodman has a really simple recipe for them Craftzine that I’m going to use! Hooray for cold chocolate banana treats!
I don’t know whether I like the clothes or the set better in these photos! The clothes are by Peter Jensen; they’re part of his 2010 resort collection. The set was created by Charlotte Mann – I love how it’s all drawn! It reminds me of the Sharpie marker basement from a little bit ago. Check out Style.com for a slideshow of all the photos in this set!

These honbachi, or book pots, were created by graphic designers Tokyo Pistol. I really like how they look! I feel like it would be really easy to make one on your own with an old disheveled book, but one perk of buying one from Tokyo Pistol would that the old book you got would be in Japanese! Check out the bindings on the books stacked in the picture! Pretty sweet…

Aimee Kick, an aspiring designer from Missouri, created the prom dress above for herself out of coffee filters! I think it looks awesome – I love it! I once made myself a dress out of duct tape for a party – not a very original idea, but it was really fun! If I ever find any pictures of it I’ll post them here, though my duct-tape dress wasn’t half as good as Aimee’s coffee-filter dress! Have you guys ever made clothes out of unusual materials? How did it turn out?
