trove wallpaper

I love these wallpapers! They’re by Trove Design out of New York City, which is a two man team that favors a more natural and unaltered look in wallpaper. I feel like these wallpapers would look good in any room of the home – but my favorite is the moths, extra-perfect for a bedroom!

Do you have a couple minutes? (Just a couple!) Do you like filling out surveys? Take our blog survey!
We came up with this survey to see what you think of the blog and of Free People, so that we can keep coming with what you like, and improve too! Needless to say, we are really anxious to see your survey responses because we really want to know your opinions! So please, if you have a moment, take our survey! We’d really appreciate it!
P.S. The cute picture of the kitty with the Atari (I like to think he’s trying to take a survey,) is from here.

Post image for Free People’s Breaking Up Playlist!

Today I bring you the second of our trio of Valentine’s Day playlists: the Breaking Up Playlist! Sad as it is, the fact of the matter is that sometimes love stinks, and sometimes we dump or get dumped. So, we asked everyone at Free People to tell us their favorite breaking up songs, and have compiled them into this playlist for you! Don’t miss our Falling in Love playlist from earlier this week, also!

I love the print on this tote! It reminds me a little bit of Elsita’s papercuts, and it would be pretty cute for keeping valentine’s too! Agree?

watermarks

These cool projections have been popping up on the sides of buildings in Bristol, UK, thanks to the Watermarks Project.
From their website:
Sea levels are rising due to climate change… but how much could they rise and how quickly? And how could this affect the city of Bristol?
Watermarks is a public art project that will use a series of large-scale projections at sites across the centre of the city to explore these questions.

Interesting!
For a gallery of the projections, see the Watermarks Project’s website.

Do you recognize the little boy and his red balloon? When I was a little girl I had this book, Le Ballon Rouge, and I loved it so much! It’s the story of a little boy and his best friend, a red balloon. It has fabulous pictures, and the story is really cute and touching!
However, I did not realize it was also a movie! Not only is it a movie, (looks just like the book, must have been one shoot for both the book and movie) but you can see the movie on Google video! I doubt it will last, movies never stay up for free for long! So if you are interested, you should go check it out! You’ll enjoy it!

you should check out this poem that dearmeglow wrote about free people called "free is fun": i was feeling constrained and i wanted to be free i walked into this store, what was reflected was me the colors, the patterns, the materials i felt an instant of silence turned into a song that was belt a hanger was hanging draping velvet and lace the reflection of the mannequin was such a familiar face i glanced at the socks placed rings on my fingers made friends with the glasses dreamt i could be a singer headbands for dancing along strands of our hair each piece in this store, i would gladly wear as closing time approaches i feel sad to leave these people are my friends and they make me feel free

This sideboard is so cool! You scratch words or drawings onto it, and it glows for you all night, displaying your creativity! By the next day it’s faded and ready for your next artwork! I would stare at something like this all night…

I’m really excited about this documentary called “Our City Dreams” about 5 female artists in New York. I won’t pretend I can explain it better than this, so here is the description from the Film Forum site:
CHIARA CLEMENTE’S AFFECTING LOVE LETTER TO THE CITY STRINGS TOGETHER THE SELF-TOLD NARRATIVES OF FIVE WOMEN ARTISTS (ages 30 – 80), each of whom has a passion for making art inseparable from her devotion to New York. Swoon, the youngest, exhibits cut-outs directly on city walls and subways, and exudes idealism and energy while carrying a two by four the way some women would a briefcase. Cairoborn Ghada Amer mixes media — embroidering with painting — to confront sexual taboos that cross cultural boundaries. After experiencing The New York Dolls in San Francisco, Kiki Smith realized she needed the energy of the big city to create her wildly influential paintings and sculptures; Marina Abramovic, originally of Belgrade, is a performance art pioneer who often uses her own body as a canvas. And Nancy Spero returned from Paris with artist-husband Leon Golub in 1964, to meld art and activism during the Vietnam War and become, in her own words, “a woman warrior.” Ronnie Scheib in Variety writes that the film is “exquisitely crafted” and “ranks as a work of art itself.”
There’s an exclusive clip on The Moment blog, and you might recognize one of the artists, Swoon, from a post on the free people blog a while back!

Hooray for Pattra! She made the absolutely adorable little shirt that Trixie is wearing below! You may remember Pattra from previous posts, as she is a grower of Shitake mushrooms, and a creator of things, like this cute ring, Free People wovens, and of course, awesome dog shirts! Thank you Pattra! You really made my day, and Trixie’s day especially!

I frequent Elsa Mora‘s blog – I usually check it every day – so I already know that whenever she makes something, it’s going to be gorgeous. Her papercuts are carefully indexed in her papercut blog, which is a good hour of browsing fun at least, and her drawings and sculptures are so talented and inspiring! She has a lot of heart. Still, I was just blown away when I checked in today and saw her latest set of pins. They are so tiny, and so textured and intricate, and just so darn cute- I love them!
See more of Elsita’s fantastic artworks here and here, and you can visit her Etsy shop here!

plastic life

I am obsessed with the Flickr set Plastic Life by Vincent Bousserez! There is just something so interesting about these photographs! They look half-real to me, like the little people are nearly alive. What do you think?
Thank you Yatzer, for showing me this set!

Austin photographer Lorri Hunnycut does similar photos! I was lucky enough to trade her for a couple a few years ago. 'Martini family Reunion' is my fave. Love Vincent's stamp.

What do you think of these fabric feathers that Sian Keegan makes? I’m really digging them! I love that they are made of scraps and sewn on pages!
