Cute fruit labels courtesy of Twig and Thistle. Print them on label paper, cut them out, attach to your husband’s lunch items and relax, knowing that he is certainly being made fun of by all of his male coworkers if they notice this at all. They probably won’t, because I don’t think guys read fruit labels, or even know they exist. But still – cute. And also – shows you care.
Love these cute kids’ tattoos from yet another Dutch shop.
I love this illustrated guide to differences between two spectacular cities. All the illustrations are from the new Paris versus New York blog, run by Vahram Muratyan — cofounder of ViiiZ art direction + graphic design studio. It’s really cool how the pictures highlight how similar the two cities are, as well as how different. When we were in Paris, I remember feeling strangely at home there until I realized it’s a lot like New York. I felt like I knew the people, understood the city, and it fit a familiar old glove.
This tiny Victorian cottage is in the Catskills in New York; designer Sandra Foster turned an old hunting cabin into this Every Girl’s Dream. And the only way to get there is by hopping across stones over a little brook. Yes, she’s thought of everything. I assume a prince on a white horse comes with it as well. See the entire thing at the New York Times.
On another pretty note, Twig Terrariums makes lovelies like this one. You can buy one pre-made, or order a special one with the figurines you want doing the things you want inside their little bubble world. They also ship kits that you can make yourself; to pick up a ready-made terrarium you have to travel to Brooklyn.
And, finally, I’m now lusting after these bikes. They are the most gorgeous things with spokey wheels I’ve seen, and with the flat-foot positioning, they would really help my “falling-when-stopped” biking issues.
Have a great and frilly weekend!
