This cute little gal is a Jindo Dog! She is visiting the office today with one of our employees – she is going to be a gift for the employee’s dad! I don’t want to say who of course, since I don’t want to ruin the surprise! Boy don’t you just wish she was a surprise for you!?
Needless to say, being as cute as she is, she is very popular, and has made the rounds all around the building. Last I saw her she was as in the last picture – tuckered out after all the fun!

I have a shiba which is a close cousing of a jindo - they keep you on your feed but are worth the effort. They have such fun & loving personalities you will be hooked for life. The big brown eyes are capable of getting anything they want out of you.

What do you think of Jessica‘s new ring? I just love it! Pattra made it for her, and they are total buddies, as you can see from the picture!
Pattra tells me the little rhinestone for the ring is a button from a discarded blouse. She really liked the popping color of the elastic string, and she just felt the urge to make them into a ring! So she did! It’s hand-sewn. Cute!

I love this idea! i would totally buy these. You should definitely sell these at free people

I want to live in this house! Built in Wales and extremely environmentally friendly, it was cheap too! Less than $10,000 to build – really! Check out the website for many interesting details about the house, as well as better pictures!

I've been obsessing with this house for many months! I even dreamt that it was my own!

Oh it brings me back to my obsession with Lord of the Rings! I would love to have a little get-away place like this and get-away to it all of the time!

I know I’ve mentioned the indie craft DIY documentary Handmade Nation. There has been a lot of buzz and some clips released, but the official screenings are finally happening!
In Milwaukee at Oriental Theater 2230 N Farwell Ave. on February 5th!
If you’re near New York, the film debuts on February 12 at the Museum of Arts and Design.
Following the screening, Faythe Levine (the filmmaker!) will be joined in a post-film panel discussion about the indie craft movement by artist Mandy Greer, and Kate Bingaman-Burt, Handmade Nation typographer. The discussion will be moderated by essayist Callie Janoff.
There are some other screenings listed on the blog (including Canada and Spain) so check it out. I can’t wait!

a man and his duck


I really wanted to share this little video clip with you! It’ll really brighten your day! It’s just about the cutest thing ever! It’s a little story about a man who adopted a little pet duck and now the duck goes to work with him every day! It is just too much! Enjoy!

a clever idea

This lamp that doubles as an earring stand is so smart! You can buy one here, (they call it the Sofia Lamp) but I think you could easily make an earring lamp with a little drill or some other hole-poking device, and a lamp shade! I bet it would look so awesome with a ton of earrings on it…

Nice idea. I decided to do this with my earrings a long time ago. Its neat someone has finally turned it into something profitable too bad I didn't think of marketing it first. XD
Sonya -Apr 08, 2009, 7:11PM
I've been doing this forever with my paper lamp shade. Just use the backs of the earrings to poke holes as needed.

delicious dots

I adore this cake that Brooke over at Inchmark made for her daughter’s birthday. It’s so cute- the polka dots really make it! I wasn’t really sure how she made the dots, but it turns out that they are edible! They’re made of frosting, and happily, she tells how to make your own cake dots right here on Inchmark! This might just make me a tiny bit excited for my upcoming birthday…
Hint:

What a fun cake! Seems a little Seussian :)

bensimon from france

front%20view.jpg
La Tennis Bensimon is the fashionable French girl’s answer to the Converse. And we have them at Free People in 3 colors: Grey, Marine, and White.
A little about the history of this classic sneaker:
At the end of the World War II, Serge and Yves Bensimon’s grand-father started a business in importing American second hand clothes to France. In 1980, his two grandchildren decide to follow this tradition. Traveling through the world, they bring back uniforms and work clothes that they customize with a personal touch. Inspired by the military pieces and the travel, they designed the line that was immediately adopted by the fashion community and 25 years later became a “must have” in French women’s wardrobes.
Check out the Bensimon Midtop on freepeople.com!
