Ladder Shelves

Ladder Shelves

I'll be moving to a new place soon, and am the most excited about making a huge shelf using two ladders! I saw it in an antique store today, and can't stop thinking about getting two plain wooden ladders and painting them pretty colors, and placing painted boards across the — Continue reading

Brooches!

I love the idea of a good brooch, and these by Little Sister Designs are the cream of the crop! They are made from silver with a piece of black acrylic sandwiched between them.

I bought one of Rob Cartelli's ceramic mugs recently at a craft fair, and love the shape and simplicity. The colors and stripes remind me of lined paper from school.

A Delicious Chandelier

This lamp makes me want to take a bath in gummy bears…is that ok? Only ten will be made by design group JELLIO. They are made up of about 5,000 acrylic gummy bears (so, you can’t eat it?), and take about 2 months to make. I would totally bask in — Continue reading

iPhone, Au Naturale

I am in love with these wooden iPhone and iPod cases from Vers Audio, located in Wayland MA. And, to make things sweeter, for every tree they use, they replant 100 through their partnership with The Arbor Day Foundation and the US Forrestry Service to re-forrest areas damaged by fire — Continue reading

Colored Bubbles!

When I saw colored bubbles, I almost did a back flip. I never even thought about them, but now that I know they exist, I must immerse myself in a cloud of them. It only took ten years of experimentation and discoveries. Thanks, Zubbles!! via Lost at E Minor

I know this blog is called 2 modern, about modern art and design, but if I didn’t know any better, I’d think these retro calendars were designed tomorrow. See more here!

Lego Land!

I nearly popped from joy when I saw these images of an Ikea table done up in legos. A Parisian design team called Munchausen, which is made up of Simon Pillard and Philippe Rosetti, bought the kitchen island from Ikea and covered it in 20,000 Legos. Via

Anatomy of a Tea Cup

I found these creepy/beautiful images on my friend’s blog, Dinosaur Party. The series, by Beccy Ridsdel, is called Plastic Surgery on Porcleain.  The artist is quoted as saying, “This work was an installation, set up as a lab experiment in progress, complete with scalpels, lab coats, needles and a microscope. — Continue reading

Dirty Hands

I recently experienced my 15 minutes of internet fame with these  pac–man-esque rings that I made, but received loads of flack via comments on various websites about how disgusting my thumb was. What's coincidental is that just a few days before the whole "dirty thumb" debacle, I put out a — Continue reading

With the holidays coming up, you have to really stand out with your cards. My boyfriend gave me a card from Mean Cards, and I was so tickled by them I had to share. The drawings are minimal but full of feelings. Here are some good ones for the season. — Continue reading

Organic Cocktail Mix

I love a good cocktail, but hate how all the mixes I ever find are chock full of chemicals and colors. Imagine my delight when I spotted a rack with these Modmix bottles on it while shopping in a co-op the other day. Organic! With flavors like Lavender Lemon Drop, — Continue reading
