*Rachel Hulin, (shares my obsession with babies)

Fine Art

Ok, aside from the cute factor…I quite fancy the notion of a tiny, relatively incapable little child performing a feat such as….flying – around the kitchen no less. I was unsurprisingly reminded of Chagall as soon as I saw Rachel Hulin’s Flying Baby series. Her photos suggest similarly dream-like narratives, and I think it has just as much to do with the innocence of a child as it does with flying. Beautiful!

Incredible tiny houses

Design, Misc.

I am completely amazed and fascinated by these homes. A very simple concept, yet one that would be hard to adjust to (especially for a person such as myself who fantasizes about having a closet the size of one of these little guys). But in all seriousness, this is brilliant! Not only are they cheap, they are also mobile. I love seeing all the clever and inventive ways that things are stored. A smart and under-rated idea that a lot of people could totaly make work -not to say that it wouldn’t be a major shift of life-style, but perhaps, in some ways a healthier one, nonetheless.
I’m under the impression that there are a number of companies that manufacture these houses, but one to note is Tiny Tumbleweed House Co.

eat cake for breakfast

Fashion

Not only is this an exceptionally cute statement to have on your bag, it may as well be a personal slogan of mine as I have been consuming a decadent breakfast consisting of two pieces of toast topped with a liberal application of nutella, and sliced fruit nearly every morning of my life for the past year and a half. Will that help me to justify spending $250 on this lovely tote? Sadly, no Kate Spade, it won’t. But please do continue making fabulous designs like these in future years when I may be able to indulge in such luxuries.
