Honestly WTF I’m addicted to collecting vintage rhinestone necklaces. Not only can they be inexpensive, they are great pieces to DIY with since most of the time, they are much too small to fit comfortably around the neck. And thanks to the jewelry trailblazers behind Lulu Frost, Dylanlex and Dannijo, I was inspired to rework some sparklers that were just not sufficient enough to wear on their own.
This past October, Dear Photograph and About Time had a contest to give away a trip to anywhere in the world for people who sent in a Dear Photograph related to love or their family. Once our winner Jennifer found out she won she told me in an email it was the best day of her life because a day before she found out the adoption papers for their new child went through. Jennifer just sent me an email linked to a blog post to their trip they went on to Turks & Caicos in March. Looks like they made a few new memories and an unforgettable trip of a lifetime.

Today, I went to do my laundry in the basement of my dorms. There were no empty washers so I sat next to one with 10 minutes left. A guy said he was taking that one so I sat my clothes on the washer beside it which had 12 minutes left. The guy that stole my washer let me borrow his detergent.

(365) Days of Tumblr, Part One Eleven months ago Canadian designer Aaron Christopher Judd started a project called “365 Days of Tumblr“ where he posts a new image/quote everyday for a whole year. Now when the project is coming to an end he has picked the best pieces based on his personal and his followers favourites. In this first post of two he’ll share the favourites from the first six months. And the remaining six months will be published in the second post that will go live when the project is finished at the end of February. Part 2 is now available here!
One of my biggest goals on the site this year, as well as Kristina’s, was to expand the type of kitchen and food related content we offer. Kristina has posted over 300 delicious recipes on Design*Sponge so far, but we wanted to dig deeper and learn more about the people behind those recipes. From what their daily lives are like and what tools they swear by to what inspires them and the work they create, this year we’re adding a few new columns in the food section that are devoted to bringing you the same sort of practical information, tips and tools that our new design columns do. With that in mind, we’re thrilled to kick off a new series that celebrates cooking tools that chefs and bakers swear by- and tips for using them. Two of my favorite people (and bakers) in the whole world, Cheryl and Griff Day, are starting us off this week. Design*Sponge | Your home for all things Design. Home Tours, DIY Project, City Guides, Shopping Guides, Before & Afters and much more
Since last year I have been, more & more, moving into finding craftspeople to hand-make my clothing ideas (or to customize on their own designs), as opposed to purchasing ready-made, designer clothing. There are people all over the world who are available to do this, and do a wonderful job of it. The materials are great quality, the design is everything you want & nothing you don't, there is soul in the finished product, and what you are NOT paying for includes - marketing - being 'on trend' - modeling/styling - branding - image metrode

One man, 100,000 toothpicks, and 35 years: An incredible kinetic sculpture of San Francisco Thirty five years ago I had yet to be born, but artist Scott Weaver had already begun work on this insanely complex kinetic sculpture, Rolling through the Bay, that he continues to modify and expand even today. The elaborate sculpture is comprised of multiple “tours” that move pingpong balls through neighborhoods, historical locations, and iconic symbols of San Francisco, all recreated with a little glue, some toothpicks, and an incredible amount of ingenuity. He admits in the video that there are several toothpick sculptures even larger than his, but none has the unique kinetic components he’s constructed. Via his website Weaver estimates he’s spent over 3,000 hours on the project, and the toothpicks have been sourced from around the world: I have used different brands of toothpicks depending on what I am building. I also have many friends and family members that collect toothpicks in their travels for me.
