Pages...

Here are some pages from the Journal of Marieke Berghuis Leewens... I find them to be so cool looking .. full of thoughts and little details.... I bet her mind goes a million miles a minute when she sits down with her journal to draw and design..


here are some of my favorites...








I totally want to be her new BFF... we'd have fun

Child's Play...

So I have been researching for cool furniture that is both functional and aesthetically pleasing .. for young children. Either to gather ideas or to inspire a new design.. I stumbled upon Little Nest.. based out of Australia

They specialize in contemporary childrens furnishings...

As a lover of contemporary furniture (especially anything Eames).. I couldn't help but admire these kid size pieces modeled after the famous Eames Chair, the Barcelona, the Bertoia ... (amongst others)



I would totally get my kids a Eames Lounge Chair.... Hey, it's never too early to appreciate good design.... although leather + crayons + playdoh might not be a great combination ...

Now I bet you can get these more locally in the US but what I really liked about these is the quality of materials and the accuracy of replication to the original sized pieces...

The Eames Lounge Chair retails for about $650 USD.. (some might think its too much $$ for something that will be outgrown relatively fast... but to each their own .. )

Check out their website... Little Nest

I just Tweeded all over the place!

This is such an awesome animated clip from Super News! on Current TV that dabbles into the explanation of what Twitter is (and what the problem with it is also)...

I don't personally have twitter... not currently planning on getting twitter..

but the clip is hilarious ..




I personally have enough with Facebook

(and just in case you've missed the What Facebook is about clip... also very funny)

Check out more of Current Tv's Super News! here or just tune in to Current every Friday at 10pm..

Hilarious ..

Small Letters...

OK,

you have to check out the worlds smallest postal service! This is a teeeeeny tiiiiiny transcription service based out of San Fran... and awesomely enough you could also order them online..
Here is how it works... you write a letter (up to 120 words) and they turn it into a tiny stationary .. typically 1" X 1.5" (that's little) ... they even place it into a tiny envelope that is addressed and sealed with a wax seal with the senders initials.. they mail it in a coin case with a magnifying glass..

It's totally cute!
