Have you guys seen this project in Praça Cantão? What used to be "hillside slum" is now a monument for this community Santa Marta, a favela in the heart of Rio de Janeiro.
Art & design projects of this magnitude really blow my mind. I bet this would be amazing to see in person.
Oh my, aren't the scenes in these photos enchanting? This fabric installation was made of braided fabric, hand-sewn garland, fabric strips, and lights by the ever-creative Ashley Meaders for the wedding of the uber-talented photographer, Max Wanger.
I spotted this video on Beach Bungalow 8 the other day, and I just can't get enough of it!
I see they [Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros] will be coming to Florida in October, too bad none of the stops are in Jacksonville!
This image is another one that has sort of stuck with me after seeing it featured last month on Design*Sponge. Look at that magnificently painted floor. First of all, love that pattern and hello, yellow! Love it, love it.
A few months ago I spotted these adorable recipe boxes made by the lovely folks over at Rifle Paper Co. And memorable they are because I have not forgotten about them since.
Something about the lovely white script against the raw-looking wood just really strikes a chord with me. They come with cute recipe cards too.
I think this would make a lovely wedding gift, assuming your newly-wed friends have an appreciation for great type and carefully crafted wood. Something about recipe boxes seems timeless to me though, the kind of thing you keep forever and then your grandkids keep once your gone. I think these look like they could stand that test of time.
I am a bit ashamed of the way I have neglected you. I hope you will find it in your guts to forgive me. You see life has a funny way of interrupting things. And then technological advances like Google Buzz and Twitter come along and all the sudden I have found an easier way to share things. But I think I'd like to come and hangout with you again, blog. If you'll have me, I will sprinkle images of inspiration and creativity upon you and things will be just like old times.
Your grateful author,
