You can’t buy those beautiful handmade pieces right now… because the Founder of NoMilk Today, Eva, has closed down her Etsy shop so she can make more of those (or maybe she’s getting a nice tan… or travelling the world).

I don’t mind wearing a bow tie if it is one of those. I love charming and delightfully fun objects. (you would have had a good laugh now watching me write the word “delightfully”… ). More delightful objects (well… now that I can write it, I’m using it) at the.

Weird but still very lovely June 9, 2011

This is just my type of jewelry because this is how I hope people perceive me: weird but still very lovely.

The duo of creators describe their work:

WEIRD but still very LOVELY

COMPLEX but still very SMPLE

RAW but still very SOFT

FUNNY but still very SERIOUS

SAME but still very DIFFERENT

ABSTRACT but still very CONCRETE

CHEAP but still very EXCLUSIVE

NICE but still very DANGEROUS

BOYISH but still very FEMININE

I’m adding the cloud necklace to my wish list right now. You can buy Okiiko accessories here.

Patrick Casey January 31, 2011

For all of you getting married in 2012 (yes, if you’re getting married this summer, it would be a tad late to start looking for a dress wouldn’t it?) and who want find the perfect dress, I would recommend having a peek at this website:  patrickcasey.ie. My friend Anita wore a dress Patrick had designed for her wedding and she looked absolutely stunning. Those two dresses above are my favourites from his current collection and… now I really feel silly telling you about how much I love those dresses… and not planning a wedding… because I’m married… it feels like I was cheating on my wedding dress. More about Patrick’s work here.

It’s been a long (shameful) time since my last post. But tonight I was going through some archive and had to share this.

(Plus Xmas is coming… you never know who might read this). The pieces are from Barbara Prouvost and you can find them at Arik Levy.

I’m not posting much but I’m busy with a project that I will hoprfully share soon (well it has to get a little prettier… we’re just not there yet).

 

Nervous System August 12, 2010

Oh I like this so much! This is how those guys create their designs:

We create our designs through an iterative and expermental process. After brainstorming an initial concept we write a pattern generating algorithm in the computer through which we further explore our ideas and ultimately create the finished product.

And this… I like even more! read more about Nervous system here.

Few days ago, one of my friend has pointed my growing obsession for jewelries. I didn’t actually realise until she said it… now I’m looking at my post for the last months and… duuuuh! The funny thing is that I don’t even wear that much jewelries, but I have to say if I was to start my life all over (not the early teens stage please) I’d probably try to give it a go as a jewelery designer. For now I’m just enjoying admiring other peoples work. More about Kyoko Hashimoto here.

I’d probably use the crappy day option at the moment… sad days I’m telling you, I wish I’d be one of those strong person with a brilliant optimistic spirit. But I am not, I am someone who’d love to wear a crappy day ring. Rings are by Weaselfactory.

Those quilts/blankets look so comfy… and I love the graphics as well. (Not that long ago, I’ve been asked what my favorite place was. My answer to that (sadly) was: my bed. Yes, I love my bed that much… and I love sleeping even more).

Check out their website (to know more about the quilts… not about my love for sleeping)

It’s too late to order those funky wallets by ColorByNumbers for Christmas… But nothing to worry, we’re starting the year soon enough…
