Threadless Sale

A little tip for those of you looking for some stress-free internet-based Christmas shopping.

Threadless is an online design community where members submit t-shirt designs to a competition every week. The highest scoring designs are printed and sold on the site. The other half is a big fan.

They have a sale on this week, with all t-shirts $9 tomorrow. Yeahy!

Covet - Blanca Gómez

Raindrops keep falling on my head but I wouldn't mind if they were as pretty as these and if I knew I was going to get some balloons afterwards.

These cheery prints are by Spanish illustrator Bianca Gómez and are available as set on Etsy at the moment.

Xixi no Banho

Pee During Shower (english subtitles) from Fernando Sanches on Vimeo.

This adorable animation is part of a Brazilian campaign to encourage people to pee in the shower in order to save water. The website is equally sweet, hand-rendered type heaven!

Display Book Shelf - Daniel Eatock

Our poor Billy bookshelves are sagging because I have ridiculously overloaded them with charity shop impulse buys. New shelves are on the list.

Perhaps to tie in with the sagging theme we should get this one from artist Daniel Eatock

The shelf sags under the weight of its contents in a graceful arc, the top edges of all the books are perfectly flush as a result of a conscious selection of volumes chosen to accommodate (or compensate for) the arc of the sagging shelf.

I think it looks like the shelf is smiling.

Covet - Cox & Cox

If any of you are like me and have a small fascination with fire, or just like oggeling pretty things, then get yourselves over to the Cox and Cox website. I want EVERYTHING.

Sky lanterns are out of stock. For now. You know what page I'll be checking everyday...

Freebies - Charley Harper

Some lovely high res images of Charley Harper screenprints from Cincinnati's Contemporary Arts Center. These are not for commercial use but but make pretty stylish screensavers or could be printed off and framed.
