these mini goals chalkboards by marykate mcdevitt are just about the cutest thing i've ever seen. i think one of these would be a great motivator to hang in your office or studio. and they're so pretty, they double as artwork! found via poppytalk.
i found this tote from dopetotes while searching etsy for a market bag to bring on my upcoming trip to paris. is this not the most adorable, ingenius bag ever? one side for wine, one side for a baguette... what more do you need?
remember this post about handmade paper made from fruits and vegetables? well, i recently discovered an artist who takes it to the next level.
margaret dorfman makes functional objects - like jewelry and bowls - out of paper-thin slices of fruits and veggies coated with a clear coat of resin so that the colors and patterns are preserved forever. how cool is that?
how gorgeous is this artwork by azul de corso? i love the soft, dreamy colors so much i just couldn't resist making a color palette out of it. i'm currently using these colors to decorate the rooms in my imaginary paris apartment...
i am so excited to share my latest project with you all... it is a blog/project called falafel for the soul, and it's all about spreading encouragement and positivity.
here is a description of the project:
this project is simple. in a world where we are constantly bombarded with negativity, i want to spread optimism and inspiration - guerilla style - by randomly putting up post-it notes with encouraging messages in public places.
as you can see, the designer boots are amazing... but with a price tag of $1400, they are nowhere near my budget.
to emulate the style, i used a pair of black slouchy boots i already had in my closet. i used some black velvet ribbon i had lying around, weaving it into two five-foot lengths of large-link aluminum chain (which is lightweight and cost effective - perfect for this project).
and... voila! my very own cheap but chic chain-wrapped boots. i can't wait to wear these when the weather starts cooling down!
