Admit it, you've done it. You've taken a Sharpie to a Netflix envelope and doodled the heck out of it. Not just once, but a multitude of times.

Have you noticed that silhouettes are all the rage these days? I see them in magazines, on blogs, books, and the TV. I’ve priced them out a few times, only to be disappointed by how costly they can be. In kindergarten, I vaguely remember my teacher shining a light at us while we stood by a wall with a big piece of white paper taped on it. It was so hard trying not to wiggle as she traced our shadow which we turned into a silhouette. Thank goodness things have gotten a little more sophisticated so that as we can replicate this process without the need for a large light, and trying to make a 4 year old sit still for a whole 3 minutes.
Pomanders, or “ Flower Kissing Balls ” are gorgeous floral decorations at parties and weddings. It’s name is from the French pomme d’ambre or apple of amber – a ball of perfume. They were carried to protect against infections and diseases by modifying bad smells. Interesting huh?

Is the idea of a pure, platonic relationship between non-related, heterosexual men and women a myth? For the most part, it would seem the answer is "yes" and the reason is deeply rooted in the evolutionary soil of our species. Thanks to the writings of John Gray, many of us now know some of the "Mars/Venus" generalizations such as men typically use language as a tool for solving problems while women use it as a way to promote intimacy.
I love white decor in the home for a fresh and clean look. However, when bright colored home furnishings are added and used in the right proportion, they can certainly add charm and personality to any white room! As seen in this Georgian house in Stockwell , from the portfolio of UK-based location agency, Light Locations. I’m especially fond of the clawfoot tub and the blue rustic cabinet against the colorful vintage painting! <p style="text-align:right;color:#A8A8A8"></p>
Fourteen Actors Acting is one of those creative projects we love featuring on theMET. Dramatic yet beautiful, it was directed by Solve Sundsbo of Norway, a fashion photographer whose incredible work we've shown many times before (see here , here and here ). Back in December 2010, Sunsbo made 14 short videos as well as beautiful black-and-white portraits for the article “The Scene Makers: Actors Who Defined Cinema in 2010" in the Hollywood Issue of The New York Times Magazine. Just recently, this series, which is now called Fifteen Actors Acting , won a Gold Cube for photography at the Art Directors Club global awards.
There are some great posts in the archives of Life Your Way that don’t get much attention anymore. This week, I’ll be sharing some of my favorites. Whether you’ve been around since the beginning or are a new reader, I think you’ll enjoy them! I am so excited to share these printable room planners with you today! But first, I have to tell you that most of the credit goes to my amazing husband because I would have given up long before finishing these printables if it wasn’t for his help.
Photos via BRC Designs We've seen a lot of things made from computer parts but this might be the most elaborate. A series of furniture, including chairs and a table, have been fashioned from junked hardware... and they couldn't be more interesting.
I was lucky enough to find two silver quarters in my change, but unless you are looking, you may not find one. Any quarter from 1964 and earlier should be silver. They are much lighter in color than newer quarters. I've read you can use the the sandwiched coins, but the metal is harder and it wouldn't be a silver ring.
from Julie Heffernan’s Constructions of Self Julie Heffernan creates sensuous figurative painting, like co-Yale MFAS, John Currin and Linda Yuskavage, but her luminous oils are patently unique among them and most working artists today. A Victorian impetus to conjoin, edging toward pastiche, creates artfully staged Surrealist environments.
