Happy Thursday everyone!
Last week for our Thursday Poll we took a look at the Draping Frame Tunic, and ended up choosing Ultra Violet as our favorite color for the top, with 205 votes! Wow!
This week I am still scoping out our cool new Riding Hood Convertible Tee – it can be styled in so many different ways! I love it! And I’m curious to know your favorite way to style it! Check out a few of the different ways below…
First have a look at it as a loose hooded tank top!
Next up is the shirt as a long and loose drapey tee!
Now check out the tee as a racerback tank!
Next is the top styled as a cute boyish fitted tee!
Finally, here is the top styled as a sort of wrap top!
Well? Gosh now that I’m looking at them all I am not sure which style is my most favorite… I like them all!
Which way of styling the shirt is your favorite?
P.S. Don’t miss our How-To Style video for this top! Watch it here.
These wonderful colorful paintings are by the aptly named Julianna Bright! Such a perfect name for an artist who uses bright color! I’ve been browsing around her site all morning, getting my fill of her fun little people and their animal buddies… Check out her Etsy shop if you feel the need for a print!

These chunky felted bead necklaces are so cool! I love how they look, and you know they probably are fun to touch as well! Kleas made the ones shown above with her pre-school class, who then took the necklaces home to their mothers!
She put together some very nice how-to instructions for making the felted beads and the jewelry! It looks really easy and fun, check it out!
I love these pretty and original light shades made by StudioTempera! They are gourds! StudioTempera, which is based in Turkey, hollows them out, decorates them, and then pokes little holes in them to be filled with beads for colored light, or nothing for normal light! They are so beautiful!
Apartment Therapy found these!
These pictures are of a piece Christien Meindertsma created for the exhibit Design for a Living World, which just opened at the Cooper Hewitt National Design Museum in New York. The exhibit aims to tell a unique story about the life-cycle of materials and the power of conservation and design.
For Christien’s piece, she used wool from a sustainable sheep ranch in Idaho and created a “flock” of different knit parts, each one made from 3.5 pounds of wool, the yield of a single sheep. Then she sewed them all together to make one huge and heavy knit rug!
It reminds me a bit of those phat knits from before. I love them both! There is something about the thick texture of these giant knits that is irresistible!
