Lobster Hats!

Our Senior Stylist and our Senior Graphic Designer went on a trip to Maine last week, and to our delight and amusement, they brought back a bunch of lobster hats!
Above are a couple pictures of us enjoying our hats! It made the morning a touch more fun and unusual!

it's nice to see that people enjoy those hats, us mainers tend to avoid them as much as possible. lol

ann wood

I’m sure you’ve seen all of Ann Wood’s pretty handmade birdies, but check out this cardboard castle she constructed for an ad job! And I’m loving her ships too! Check out her blog and leave her some love.

written afterwards

These photos are so beautiful I can’t even stand it! From a Japanese fashion label called writtenafterwards. Can you believe the last photo is the original piece of lace used to make the globe??

This reminds me of a passage from Daniel Pinkwater's "The Snarkout Boys and the Avocado of Death", in which an artist painted a room and everything in it white and then painted it on a canvas.

Check out these women’s tops:

Very cool. I like them a lot. But have a look at what I didn’t notice until later:
Wow! I love it! On the first two in particular, I definitely thought the prints were stripes and spots, not horses and skulls. It just goes to show you! If you’d like to see more of the Hawkins Trio Cami, click here!

embroidery by nea

Nea makes these “wall wear” cross stitch embroidery decorations, and has transformed the idea into a necklace as well! I love the metal details mixed in with the threads! Check out the nea etsy shop and the creativadoration blog for more info. (The blog is half in French and half English, but you can always enjoy the pictures!)

Aren’t these frames so cool? Recently we got an email from Free People girl Chelsea Wilcox, who asked us if we might like to see some picture frames she made out of Free People catalogs. We did, and we loved them so much, we wanted to share them with you!
Here’s a little note from Chelsea, who is pictured on the right in the top two photos:
“I’m 18 years old and an avid lover of Free People clothes! I recently made a bunch of frames decorated with snippets from the two most recent Free People magazines. I just cut out all the designs I liked into squares and rectangles from clothes and patterns that were within the magazine. Then I placed the cut-outs on a photo matte-board that had been cut to place a picture inside. You don’t really have to use a matte-board, a hard piece of cardboard would work as well. And, you do not have to have the matte-board pre-cut, you could also glue your photo in the center and work around it–but having it pre-cut makes the photo a lot more evenly placed!”
I think this is such a cool idea. Thank you for sharing Chelsea!
Check out this older post for another cool way to craft with Free People catalogs!

broken glass

Do you ever have the desire to drop or throw something, just to see what it would look like broken? Or just to hear that crashing noise? Kind of like that Bjork song where she throws bottles and cutlery off the side of the mountain, just to see them fall? Behold the Passive Aggressive Anger Release Machine, an interactive sculpture by Yarisal and Kublitz (check out an unrelated, but amusing video on the home page of their site).
Just enter your coins, and enjoy your mischief, guilt free.
found on today and tomorrow

i love this! i would love to see it in action!

That's my fav. Bjork song. I can very much relate to it, and also to this machine. Although, at the same time...I also hate to see things go to waste.

I was perusing the Penguin & Fish blog and came across this awesome jewelry crafted by Joanna Rutter. I am especially taken by the little birdie ring. So cute! If you want to check out her etsy shop, click here!

love anna james

I’m in love with this graffitied cupboard from Love Anna James! The artist works from Southeast London, focusing on transforming old furniture into beautiful art. This piece is titled Verona, inspired by Romeo and Juliet. Check out Love Anna James for more info and images.

Meet Agnes! She is the dog of one of our stylists, Lauren, and she has the pleasure of coming to work almost every day!
Name: Agnes
Nicknames: Wagnes, Waggles, Waggers, Angus, Aggy
Breed: Your guess is as good as mine!
Likes: Everyone in the whole world (not the best watch dog), being dragged on her back down the halls in our building, and skateboards.
Dislikes: Not much aside from being ignored.
Favorite friends: Her two boyfriends: Charlie (the golden retriever puppy from Urban) and Porter (the pointer puppy from Free People), Indy, Brownie, Pilgrim, Mackenzie, Lizzy, Pruitt, Erin and Elsa
How did you meet? My boyfriend and I were at the gym one night, and the SPCA was having an adoption event in the lobby. Agnes and another puppy were chasing each other around (they were both twelve weeks old) and we decided to adopt her. The following evening, we drove to the SPCA to pick her up, we didn’t even have a leash! When we brought her back to our apt, she ran in circles for about 2 hours, it was amazing.
Anything else you want to share? If you are thinking about getting a dog…adopt one! There are so many wonderful puppies who need homes.

The other day I came across the Coastline Dress when I was browsing around our women’s dresses, and now I’m pretty sure I’m going to have to get myself one as soon as I get paid. :-) I am so into the crochet bodice. Gorgeousness!

I hate going to the grocery store and putting my tomatoes in one plastic bag, avocado in another, and broccoli in yet another. I need to start bringing some reusable produce bags! You can buy the one pictured from lima bean home on etsy, make your own, or even use your Free People muslin shopping bags.

Michelle -Jun 20, 2008, 9:03PM
I love this idea! I always put produce in my cart loose, so I don't have to use the plastic, but this would be so easy and stop my apples from rolling away!
