Lust For – IV

My forth installment of “Lust For”.

If my apartment wasn’t carpeted I would definately get one of these Trompe L’Oeil Floor Mats from Urban Outfitters.  They are photorealistic reproductions of wood (or stone, but I don’t like those as much) printed on a tough micro-woven rug.  Imagine how cool these would look in a mud room!

One Man’s Doodle…

Remove your mind from the gutter… I am talking about ABSTRACT EXPRESSION, people!!!

I was chatting online with a good bud of mine when he shot me this link… Jackson Pollock.  Needless to say, that was the end of our conversation because I became totally enamored by the site.  What’s not to love about creating Pollack-like paintings on your computer with a click of your pen (or mouse)?  I guess my next step would be to try to pass it off as “art” like Pollack.  Nah… how many times are people really going to fall for that?!?!

Bon Appetite

I think I have been fairly upfront about the nesting phase I have entered. 

For the first time since living with my parents (which was forever ago), I have actually cozied up my living space… making it look and feel like my own.  Totally unlike before when I lived like a gypsy who wouldn’t sign a lease or hang my hat because I had one foot out the door… regardless of whether or not I actually did.  I have framed and hung artwork, purchased a Jonathan Adler throw pillow and invested in my new bff – the Le Creuset grill.  But don’t get the wrong idea here…I have no interest in being Martha Stewart or Donna Reed for that matter.  Nor could I be if I lost my sense of self decided to. 

Regardless, I appreciate this Whole Meal Bread Making Demo Video… and as long as you are into 80’s style belly-tanks, break-dancing and hair-band sex appeal, you will appreciate it too.  Bon Appetite!

Lust For – III

My third installment of “Lust For”.

I thought about writing something creepy since it is Friday the 13th… but I don’t like creepy things.  However, anybody who knows me, knows that I LOVE animals.  (But to be clear for those that don’t know me, I am not a dirt-under-my-nails kinda gal.)  And now that I am in this new nesting phase of my life, I am overly concerned with interior design.  So imagine my excitement when I stumbled across the animal print collection called “Catherine’s Animals” by Catherine Ledner. ANIMALS SHOT AGAINST GORGEOUS WALLPAPER PRINTS!  Mama likie — yes, I am talking about myself in 3rd person… don’t judge me. 

If I had any extra money I would purchase a few… but I don’t, so I will instead put her work on my blog and live vicariously though my faithful readers who will no doubt snatch up her inventory.

My favorites… in order…

My fourth installment of All Things English… 

I had a feeling this would become a trend given peoples reactions to my previous post Tide Chandelier


This, my friends, is literally glowing trash art… a.k.a. another trash chandelier.  And once again, it looks pretty cool. 


This design is by David Batchelor, who although actually Scottish, lives his life as a sculptor, artist, writer and currently tutor at the Royal College of Art in London.

You were wondering how I was going to make this English, weren’t you?  Yeah, me too!
