very delicate delicates

strumpetcollage2.jpg
I am in love with these exquisite dainty little underthings by Stumpet & Pink. They’re too delicate for me though, I would definitely inadvertently rip seams and tear them up if I wore any! They are so so pretty to look at though. What do you guys think?

I LOVE these. They are so delicate and beautiful...I do agree they don't look too durable but they are also not for everyday wear...still pretty little things...

salt art

Motoi Yamamoto creates these amazing designs with loose salt, or salt baked into bricks for large structures. He started using salt as his only medium when his sister passed away from brain cancer twelve years ago, and he looks at his labyrinth-esque art as at once futile yet necessary to his healing. It’s also interesting to note that in Japanese culture salt is often considered a symbol of purity.
See a nice interview with Motoi here.

I've a few days I've this blog bookmarked as a favorite site. A little funny, because even kilak weeks ago about this forum I said before, but no blog you will not find among my esteemed pages. Testifying to the extraordinary discussion that blogs are always niewartosciowym Internet junk, on which there is no reliable knowledge, or objectivity. Im not talking now in regards to a specific address here, but all is discussing blogs in the form of handbooks, diaries, and information services there is always a lot of unreliable knowledge and unverified information, which translates into my long-standing aversion to these sites. However, its unwillingness to revise its humility, yesterday I searched the web resources in the search for specific knowledge. A bit of the case visited several blogs, because although subject matter often appears inside the network, but this subject rather superficially presented. Kidy found this blog, I was more than surprised. As it turns out the issue presented here is very extensive. No doubt that when it comes to content is the better service available today in the Polish network. Not only that even scientific, popular, and service breaks aren't able to match this portal. To date not succeeded, and also contact mcdougal of all the major publications. But I am hoping it succeeds it will email my email and failed to disappoint me, being a faithful reader for the future and will continually grow your blog. Because they sites are thin on a lawn in the Polish Internet. Why did I write this all? All through my character, I don't like making mistakes, however , if is to admit them. Such is the situation here. Of course, one swallow does not make (they say), but on such basis as this blog Im ready to admit that kind of web pages can be very valuable, kind and most importantly interesting.

I love this quote from Alex Wang. Do you have any tricks to making your t-shirts or anything else (jeans, boots, etc) super comfy and worn looking? I like to wash new t-shirts, and stretch out the neck a bit. How about you???

I thought this was the oddest thing I did, but I totally do this! Usually on Thursday nights so I'm ready for casual Friday at work. I still feel so comfy and the bad thing is I wish I was still in bed sleeping! Thanks for sharing this quote :)!

L.E.D. Sheep!

There are no words for this video other than totally awesome! Samsung paid these guys to go to Wales and put some LED lights on sheep and herd them into patterns to make different displays! The sheep were probably kind of confused, but boy did they help make some cool visuals! Check it out, it is just amazing!

P.S. Props to the sheepdogs too!

I really like this idea from Daily Danny to use stick pins as a wall decoration. I think the care taken in making the letters a good font shape really makes the decoration! It looks so cool!
Granted, some of us are less than keen to make a million holes in the wall… But, you could always use corkboard or something else as a base!

zig-zag patches

So I was browsing around Craftzine and I saw an awesome DIY for making zig-zag patches like the ones shown above! I love patches like that, and the DIY has a bunch of pictures; it seems really easy! Check it out!
One other thing, also on Craftzine, I saw the picture below:

It reminded me that everything looks better with googly eyes! I need to buy a little bag of them and go wild…

I know many of you may have already seen this video, but since I posted earlier today about the Hindu holiday Holi, I couldn’t resist posting this old video we have of two of our designers enjoying Holi at one of our factories in India. They happened to be there working during the festival that year, and had a blast celebrating with everyone! It looks like so much fun!

These are from Boston.com‘s cool photo blog, The Big Picture. They’re shots of the huge Hindu fesitival Holi, which is celebrated by, among other things, throwing colored power and water on one another! The colors are so gorgeous, and it looks like so much fun! Very spring! See more here!

the best lego rings yet

These silver rings come with one, two, or four Lego studs on the top – so you can put any Lego piece you want on them! I love it! If I had one I would definitely put the little Lego flowers on top, it looks so cute! These are by far the best Lego rings I’ve seen, and there are quite a few varieties out there.

Ah my boyfriend gave me a lego ring for our first anniversary, but it's a little different than this. I love it more, though, cause on his the studs face outward, and on mine the studs face inwards, so they fit together!
