shoe love.


these shoes are just what i'm looking for. easy to run around in. the perfect tennis shoe alternative. and there is something else that makes them super cool.

what's so cool about them? they are eco-friendly. made from recycled rice bags woven together and the soles are recycled PU and cork. each pair is unique, like art!

you can get them here. they are from Keen. all of their shoe soles are made with keen.cork. renewable, natural and more sustainable. this cushioning is specially molded for outdoor adventures to reduce impact on feet – and the environment. gotta love that.

"colour pencils"




i love this environmentalist art exhibit "Colour Pencils" of Jonna Pohjalainen. an artist from Oulunkylรค, Helsinki Finland.

in her work "Colour Pencils" she wanted to show how the art connected with its surroundings and how it changed during different weather conditions and times of the day. she created this piece in 2006.

without sun there are no colours and life!

rockin.

this weekend i went to the renegade craft fair.  since i took my boys, i didn't get to enjoy it as much as i would have liked. i did however find a couple of treasures and some cool vendors. 

i got this cool rock poster. 

it may seem simple, but it is styled after a this poster issued upon the outbreak of World War 2.

the original poster was issued as a means of allaying public fear. the poster was held in reserve for use only in times of extreme crisis. although thousands were produced, only a handful ever saw the light of day.

i have been planning on getting this poster for some time now to put in my entryway. i love it's vintage charm. but i fell in love with the one this weekend because it will go perfect with the little rock star photo shoot with my boys.  

you can get the poster here.

dreaming.


i actually dream about the candy buffets created by Amy Atlas. no joke.  this talented girl has got to have one of the sweetest jobs.  click here for some pics of these dreamy sweet scapes.

presentation.


one of my favorite online stores has these little cuties. cast iron skewers that look like twigs. you can use them on the barbeque. so much nicer than those bamboo skewers. and you don't have to soak them. they make a great presentation...it's all about presentation.

i likey.


this bike would make me happy.  i can just imagine living down by the beach, pedaling this bike in a crisp linen skirt, my two boys (freshly bathed and hair combed) sitting in the bucket, down to the farmers market and picking up some fresh produce and flowers.

i can dream, can't i?

these bikes are from the company Madsen.  they produce some cool cycles!  they have developed their bike to have a special center of gravity to let you carry cargo easily.  go check them out.
