Ok, so it’s not fall, not even close. But if I wait, I’ll forget to share this with you. And I think this is really cool. So just bookmark this and save it for 6 months. Check out haha.nu for a the step-by-step to making roses out of maple leaves. This could be soooo pretty!

We’re featuring this new jewelry line in the March catalog called Love Heals. Here’s a bit from their site:
“The jewelry embodies our main passions in life: art, spirituality, nature and community service. Each piece of jewelry created is imbued with powerful talismans and sacred-charms, which we have gathered traveling the world.”

More cool stuff: They plant 10 trees for every piece of jewelry sold. They also “are slowly creating a non-profit healing retreat center and ecological think tank” in Santa Barbara. Check out their stuff at Free People

A friend at FP turned me on to some new blogs this week, and I discovered small stump. Check out this crazy cute bunny vase she made from an old doll head. She says she has a few of the heads and has more ideas, so be sure to check her blog and etsy store for other fun crafts.

The March catalog is here! The book was shot in India in Rajasthan Desert’s Neemrana Fort Palace. The palace is a hotel that many of the Free People designers have stayed in when traveling in India. Built since 1464 AD, Neemrana Fort Palace is among India’s oldest heritage resorts.
The two trend concepts in this collection are Peace Corp Prep and Everything but a Flower. Peace Corp Prep is a mixture of traditional preppy styling mixed with Indian prints and colors, lots of plaids mixed up with Indian florals. Everything but a Flower is print driven, inspired by all things geometric, both vintage and modern.

Hey fp girl, I am dying to know who is one of Free People constant models is. Now she is on the main page (she is not in the catalog, though) wearing "We The Free printed scoop burnout tee" and "Ruffled Petticoat skirt". She has tanned skin, brown hair, brown eyes... I'm always looking at her and thinking that she is the best girl to respresent FP clothing line, such pretty, earthy, feminine, etc... Who is she? Waiting for an answer with biggest curiosity :) D.S. P.S. By the way, thank You for this blog, I love it!

sfgirlbybay got a case of Gocco Mania! I’ve heard the word “gocco” but honestly didn’t really know what the printing process entailed. She posted some great pics of the process. Check out her blog for the account of her illness.

recycled fp catalog

On the back of our last catalog, we challenged you to recycle the paper in a creative way.
We received the most amazing note via email. One customer took our challenge and used the pages of our catalog to create this awesome jewelry. We are so impressed and surprised at how she re-purposed the book. Great job Ashley!!! You can buy these pieces and more at Ashley’s etsy store or befriend her on myspace!
Did anyone else see that challenge on the catalog? Anybody else do something creative?? Leave your email in a comment!

This challenge inspired me to make a necklace organizer. I was so tired of untangling the mess. I made one from a fp catalog and a few more from some 30s reproduction fabric. They really work great!

Inspired by the message on your catalog, I decorated the very boring box holding my makeup with the Free People catalog, and some dried flowers :) Recycling is fun! check it out ---> http://www.flickr.com/photos/24631741@N03/2329593351/

window art

I spotted these window films by Emma Jeffs on Oh Joy! They are beautiful! I love it on the French doors. They actually remind me of the window that caught my eye at barometer. Theirs is made out of some sort of lace, or a velvet burnout, but from afar it could look like these films.

Wow-- these ARE beautiful! Thanks for the link!
