Sequined Animals
By January 5, 2011

CV WestElm Sequined Animals design
I love how the holiday season ushers in the sparkles and sequins each year. Clothes get more glittery, the latest fashions feature more silver and gold, shoes sport shimmery rhinestones, and everything is just a-twinkle! Well fashion isn’t the only place to shine. This year West Elm, one of my favorite furniture stores, is featuring festive sequined animals, and $5 of each purchase goes to St. Jude Children’s Hospital. So decorate away with sequined squirrels, rabbits, and birds!

This ring is alive! You’re looking at a real bed of moss set in wood. Yes, that means you have to water it. This charming ring was a collaboration between Cometman, a jewelry designer, and Kokeya, a bonsai designer. You can buy your very own through Ladestore.

Plush Sushi!
By November 4, 2009

beacreature plushsushi Plush Sushi! inspirations food art

What’s not to love about plush sushi?! It’s just so cute. This genius creation is by Amy Ortiz, the founder of  T&A friendly. She also makes plush steaks, fortune cookies and taxidermy creatures. Gallery Nucleus in Alhambra, CA is hosting a workshop on making plush items with her in early December.

In Amy Ortiz’s words: “Established in 2005, T&A was originally a collaborative team dedicated to blowing off some steam through the creation of outrageous installations. In 2006, “Friendly” was added to the title and the project took on a life of its own. This is a place where a bit of tack and influences from Martha Stewart, no less, all blend together to bring you the best designs in Art, plush, home decor and anything else I want to take on.”

I love them!
