Trompe L'oeil Fauna

They are beautiful and amazing. But I have one I like best. I wonder which one is yours?

Persian Puzzle Rug

What? Are you dying to build one up? Because I know I am. My kid and I would have so much fun with one of these rugs. Designed by Katrin Sonnleitner, the PuzzlePerser has 1225 pieces made of recyclable synthetic and natural rubber. A perfect marriage of fun and functionality.

Be your own Persian carpet designer.

A little Valentines Movie

It's short on dialog but sweet as anything. Go watch. It's called Signs.

Like Mommy

I was surfing the net the other day and found the image below. I wouldn't know if it is real or fake but it made me laugh.

Plano 2000

From Dutch Designer Egbert-Jan Lam and his buroJET design studio come these fold flat chairs that also double up as artwork on your walls.

"Plano is a flat reproduction of a well known design, in this case a chair. The idea behind this chair is a reaction to society getting flatter, literal and figurative."

You want more?

I can just see these chairs making it big in countries where living spaces are tiny and real estate is a pricey commodity.

A Muff For Your Cup

Ingenious. Perfect for winter too. I'm predicting they'll sell like hot cakes and, if you want one, you should order yours through Les M Design.

No tattoo snafu

Ever wanted to get a tattoo and you did and then you grew to hate what you selected? You could have saved yourself some tattoo grief if you had only used JuliAnn Miller's Tattoo Tester. Go ahead, be adventurous. Just like the Cracker Jack stuff. It comes off.

  1. These are all fantastic! But I must say that I am just floored by the amazing hand/animal art. These are just pure genius!
    Thanks for sharing!

  2. Wow those were so cool! I think my favourite is the elephant because of the cool perspective they used when photographing it. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment!

  3. I loved all the little doggies......the elephant was a close second. You find the most interesting things in your wanderings!

  4. To tell you the truth, I just cannot enjoy photos like the first series here (animals on the hands)because I don't trust them. Ever since Photoshop, I never know if I can trust my eyes, and I don't like that. I loved the tattoo station! BTW, I also really enjoyed reading your bookshelf and your comments. I would love to have the time to read a few of those.

  5. i love the zebra, the swan and the alligator. so cool! love, sahar
