simple and lovely

These mixed media pieces by Sunny Belliston are so simple and unassuming at first glace, but you get sucked in! The colors, the shapes, something about them is just very pleasing! Do you agree? I would love to have these on the walls of my apartment to look at when I’m sitting… and thinking….
Dear Ada found these!

Check out the new Chanel No. 5 video – it’s amazing! Plus, it features Audrey Tautou, who I like very much. Yay!

So awesome, reminds me of Darjeeling Limited. I wish I could go on a long train ride like this... ~F

Hi Jen! Right at the moment, we are working with just German, French and Spanish. We may be working with more languages in the future, but we're starting with these! However, if you're fluent in Italian or Dutch or Swahili or whatever, it can't hurt to fill out the form anyway!

dandelion bed

I just had to post this amazing bed by Margaret Elman. It is antique from the 1930′s, but she reupholstered it with this pretty dandelion fabric! It’s a really interesting look – I like it!

chiara bautista

I’m going crazy over the art of Chiara Bautista! Her work is kind of bizarre, and there is just much to look at within each piece – I’m totally mesmerized! Apparently she also goes by the name Milk, which is the name on her Myspace page. Check it out if any of the work above interests you – there’s a ton of it on there, and in better quality and sizes. Awesome!

wow, those are really amazing! the second one is my favorite
Alyssa -May 08, 2009, 7:43PM
I'm pretty sure the second piece was inspired by Saint Sebastian, who was martyred by being tied to a tree and shot to death with arrows.

found on the beach

Artists Gilles Cenazandotti and Thierry Lede recently created a new group, Clear Art Planet, whose main mission is to go around the world cleaning up beaches. The awesome pieces above were made with the items they cleaned off of the beach in Cap Corse Corsica. I adore these pieces, they are so beautiful! It’s amazing though that those are just the items from a beach in Corsica! Probably not even close to all of them, in fact… It gets me thinking of all the stuff on the beaches of the world…
You can visit Clear Art Planet’s site, but be warned it’s in French!

Happy Thursday everyone! The week is almost out and it’s time for our Thursday poll!
Last week we looked at some summer scarves, and the favorite was the Patterned Sunstroke Scarf with 152 votes!
This week I’ve been browsing our convertible skirts, and wondering which one you all think is the cutest!
First check out our Tie Dyed Convertible Skirt, worn here as a skirt.

Now have a look at our Overdye Rural Route Convertible Skirt, worn here as a dress. (We have also have this style in a non-overdyed version and different colors here.)

Next up is the Floral Tiered Convertible Skirt, shown here as a skirt and in Deep Sea Combo.
Finally, here is our Waves of Grain Convertible Skirt in Plum and worn as a top!
So, which do you prefer?

shiny bic

I have to have one of these pens! Aren’t they awesome?! These Athas! pens are made in the same shape and style of regular Bic pens, except they are made in your choice of steel, gold, silver, or brass. Since they’re in the style of the regular Bic pen, you can change the ink really easily! I love them!

bicycle contrails

This gadget lets cyclists leave a little trail of color everywhere they go! They’re calling it a contrail, and it was designed by Studio Gelardi. The original idea, from their site, as phrased by Doobybrain: By using this device, bicyclists will have a clearer path on which to ride safely and out of the way of vehicular traffic. At the same time, as more bicyclists using the Contrail go over a line created by a cyclist before them, the line gets brighter allowing drivers to clearly see a marked bike path where there might be none. It’s sort of similar to what happens when a dirt path appears in a grassy field after lots of people have taken the same shortcut over a period of time.
It’s a really cool idea- I am hoping people take it up, if only for the pretty colors…
