crochet portraits

This is some seriously impressive crochet work! I can’t imagine how long it would take to create one of these. They’re the work of artist Jo Hamilton, and if you live in or around Portland, you can go check them out in person! They are currently on display at Stumptown Downtown. If anyone goes, please tell me about them!

refrigerator repair -Apr 28, 2013, 9:42PM
Any specific options for freezer repair? The freezer part of my freezer isn't working correctly and even I can also notice a fan sputtering from the backside of the refrig. I'm aiming to be ready to phone a refrigerator repair company in the town and also get it repaired tomorrow. Any offer a suggestion on who to ask for refrig repair?

So this is totally random, but since it’s Saturday, I figured it would be fun to share this video with you! It’s basically just 5 minutes of hilarious and cute kitties doing all the best things that cats do. If you like cats you will definitely get a real charge out of this video! Enjoy!

I'm a cat lover and this is by far the cutest video I have ever seen!

I know we’ve already looked at some animal sculptures today, but these are just so dear! Kyoko Okubo crafts these little figures from washi, a traditional Japanese paper. I can’t believe they are made out of paper! You’ve gotta love the twig antlers too! See many more of Kyoko’s cute creations here.

How big are these pieces? I was wondering perhaps you can create a nature & wildlife decor theme for the home. There are brilliant photographic prints of wildlife in action you can display to create an interior design like that.

driftwood animals

jansch_horse2.jpg
These gorgeous animals were sculpted using driftwood found on beaches. They are so incredible! I am amazed at how well they flow together- I don’t know how the artist, Heather Jansch, manages to put the wood together so perfectly! Heather has been sculpting for nearly 40 years, and she has tons of other work on her site – it’s worth taking a look at, if only to see all the other animals she has made!

giant dollhouse

benning_dollhouse_det.jpg
Artist Heather Benning created this life-size dollhouse from an abandoned farmhouse in Saskatchewan! One outside wall has been completely replaced with plexiglass to create the dollhouse view. Heather also decorated the house with 60′s furnishings, on account of that is when the house was apparently abandoned. I would love to go and visit this in real life! I would be overcome with the desire to go in though – that is always my problem with regular sized dollhouses – I want to get in somehow!

The Dollhouse is so cute, I found it along the highway this past fall. What an interesting concept and you have to be careful not to miss it as you go along the road as the outside is pretty inconspicuous. It reminded me of my grandma's old countryhouse.

studded knees!

There are lots of studding DIY ideas out there, but I’m am loving this! You could stud up some denim scraps and patch them onto a pair of old jeans that need some new life.

green capsule

0422_greencapsule03.jpg
Can you believe this tiny little garden?! The Green Capsule only grows one seed at a time – the kit comes with tomato, sweet basil, cabbage and green pepper. I like that it has a little strap! It’s designed to be attached to your cellphone but I think I might rather wear mine around my neck! They’re sold here if you feel so inclined…

When I saw these pictures from Prada’s stud-heavy F/W 09 collection on Men’s Rag, they really got me to thinking.
I have read quite a few fashion bloggers who are downright tired of the whole stud trend. For what it’s worth my boyfriend also thinks studs are over, though he is no fashion plate. However, Prada obviously disagrees, as do I – when I first saw these pictures I loved them instantly! I think all the studding looks great, and I especially want one of those nice shirts!
So of course what I’m wondering is what you readers think! Are studs getting to be over-played or are you guys still feeling it?

I LOVE the studs and spike I am seeing on things this year! I have been using these on my DIY creations for years. THE BEST place to go is www.studsandspikes.com , they are fast, cheap, have a great selection and are really nice.

Hooray! It’s Thursday again! I wonder if I would even notice how fast the weeks go by if I didn’t have the poll to remind me…
Last week we looked over the different colors of the Sequined Mesh Tunic, and white was the favored color, with 220 votes!
This week I’ve been looking at our selection of gladiator sandals. Gladiators were huge last summer, and it looks like they will continue to dominate this summer as well. Check out these different styles! Which pair do you like the most?
First is up is the Gold Crystal Sandal.

Next see our Garland Sandal in gold.

Now check out the Delilah Laceup Sandal in silver flash.
