TGIF!: "Sleep the Clock Around" -- Belle and Sebastian

Decor Art

 I was at a clients' home and we were talking about her art studio and I was telling her of my work space. She asked me what kind of art I do and I told her I was into decor- how every wall is a blank canvas. She looked at me like I was a phony. These photos are what I am talking about. Displayed collections and organized spaces. It's about seeing art in everything- sorry, I just watched an Eames documentary and feel like I'm stealing a quote from Ray Eames.

Pedal-Powered Boat

 A pedal-powered shanty boat by Phil Thiel.

 It goes 3-4 miles/ hour- I think I would need some handlebars or something to hold onto.

You can buy fully detailed plans to build your own for $150.

Barbie Trashes Her Dreamhouse

Carrie Becker created a hoarding home in miniature. The season premiere of Hoarders, the television show, had 2.4 million viewers. Carrie says that she is just trying to create a world where the viewer cannot distinguish between what is reality and what is fiction. Art for arts' sake- I think it's awesome.

 So cute! I thought I could use one for my laundry quarters.

Time to get rid of it. It feels better being in an uncluttered space.

Purse Organizers

Purse organizers- Divide and Conquer
 I've been busy with work these days- I don't have time for my usual routine of coffee and blogs in the morning. So I've been looking for items to improve my work life. These organizing bins could come in handy for all of my tools.

 They come in different sizes- I'm looking for ones that fit in my side bike baskets.
