merry christmas!!!

Hope everyone is having a Very Merry Christmas this year!  Stay warm and toasty and joyous.  I’m truly blessed to have my family and loved ones around and in my life.  (Not to mention, Grandma’s food is the best!!)  Love to all!

Escher stairs of piano keys, grid it up, Mondrian-esque lines and colors, tetrahedron, falling polyhedrons, florescent colors light tubes…lovin’ the chaos in this video.

seeing hearts…

“Love at First Sight” glasses are the best!!  They make everything happy and will have you seeing hearts.

Discovered them during Thanksgiving at Jeff and Laura’s.  Thanks Laura for the find!  Pretty much had to get me a pair myself immediately.  Noa’s being a great model.

Get a pair.  See for yourself and Remember…don’t look directly at the sun.

lo res heels_united nude

Abstraction of a pair of heels.  Lo Res Shoe for United Nude.  Concept by Rem Koolhaas.

The Lo Res Project 3D scans objects and simplifies the number of points used to represent it, thus creating its fragmented nature (the more points, the smoother the object; the less amount of points, the more fragments and triangular).

United Nude was founded by Rem Koolhaas and Galahad Clark.

These are so awesome.  I want a pair.

inspired by the 1960s

Stumbled upon this image while researching hairstyle ideas for our Madmen themed xmas party this year. This was one of my favorites. Lessons I learned: updos during this time were time consuming and hard! how did you do it everyday ladies? tease tease tease that hair…and spray spray spray that hairspray…

creeping colors

Loving the way the greens, oranges, and reds are climbing up the facade. Whimsical…

counting to something….

Passed by this at the intersection of John St. & Water St. (?) in Wall Street area. What’s it counting up to? First inclination is to say it’s a clock, but not sure how to read it considering it was taken at 9am one day. Mystery….I should just google it 🙂
