I just discovered these dreamy hand-crafted leather bags by Brooklyn based A.B.K, and if I ever have enough money to spend $500 on a purse, these would be my choices. They are reminiscent of beautiful, rustic pieces of furniture that might be found in hearty cabins in the woods of — Continue reading

I am in love with this photography project- the artist Irina Wening had people take pictures of themselves in the same clothes in the same locations in the same poses as pictures from their youth! The series is called Back to the Future (clever!) Via Cup O’ Jo
Can you believe these sculptures? Made by Polish artist Jerzy Kediora, they were recently displayed at this year’s Kinetica Art Fair in the UK. “Balancing Sculptures by JOTKA amuse and attract, but above all, they balance,” says Kinetica Art Fair. “Balancing between horizontal and vertical lines, they blend in with — Continue reading
Maybe not…but these chocolate skulls cast from real human skulls are pretty amazing…if not creepy. Made by Marina Malvada. Via Cakehead Loves Evil.

I had such a lovely walk down a small street in DC today, and I had to share some beautiful architectural (and adorable) finds! Happy Thanksgiving Two friends who were watching me out their window. I love how each town house differentiates itself with such vivid and fun colors. The — Continue reading

I would want to live in this chicken house by Frederik Roije. And if I were a magazine, I would want to be stored on this shelf. And if I were in the dark, I would want this lamp.
Japanese artist Takashi Murakami installed his wacky work in the Chateau of Versailles. The images are so completely contradictory that they look Photoshopped to me, with the pop-art pieces completely out of place in the gilded and opulent environment. via flavorwire
I've had coasters on the mind lately, and thought I'd share some of my favorite finds: via via via via
I love the idea of writing notes in fur! By Portuguese designer Goncalo Campos. This red table that shows what can happen under a table is maybe one of my favorite things. Via Dinosaur Party
I just want to frame a photo of these clothes hangers made from the backs of old chairs by Antonello Fuse. So beautiful and unexpected! Via http://www.resign.it/node/744 (The title of this post is for madmen fans..)
I would do anything to see these futuristic birds in their houses attached to the bottom of scaffolding! These little ones are in Madrid. Via Dinosaur Party via Wooster Collective.
I am in love with this amazing house built into a hill in Switzerland, called Villa Vals. It was designed by Christian Muller Architects. You can stay there, too! Do I smell a honeymoon? Via Black Eiffel
I recently returned from a trip to Turkey, where I expected to see everyone drinking Turkish coffee. And while there was plenty of that beverage, the more ubiquitous liquid was tea, apple tea to be precise. It was so utterly delicious, and you could have it everywhere! You popped into — Continue reading
I recently acquired a fairly ugly $3.00 end table from a garage sale. I loved the shape, but it wasn't the prettiest chicken in the coop (see first image). All you need to transform something plain-jane into something wonderful like this is two colors of spray paint and masking tape! — Continue reading
