Fun Camera Stuff!

Alright so I'm a slight tree hugger and I can appreciate something a little more when it's been transformed from one thing into something else that is fun stuff. Those are technical terms.
I came across a Sicilian artist named Arcangelo Favata and he makes these cool cameras out of recycled wood.

"For him the concept of rubbish does not exist in nature, because everything can have another life. This is the idea which his seats are based on, completely built recycling and assembling obsolete materials found in the streets of Torino, where he has been living for a couple of years."

Look for Less @ Target [interior Design]

Target is the best for reasonably priced decor - we all know that. Here is a quick look for le$$ that you can get from Tar-jay:

Not crazy about the paper mache look.
  It's a little smaller but it looks much better and is also polyresin.

Going off The Beaten Path...

I'm about to burst with excitement (the official baby "burst" date is April 21st by the way). I'm deviating from the fun photography and the interior design path that this blog is based on. It's still design related and I've tried to walk the line before here but now I'm going all out on a post about clothes.

ZARA is killing me. Again. I am currently 20 weeks pregnant and am in the stage where it just looks like I'm drinking a lot of beer. I've popped but am in that in-between stage so I'm constantly looking for camouflage the little bump clothes. The kind of shirts and sweaters that fall straight down from the chest. These are not that easy to find if you want style as well. Well ZARA seems to have some good solutions: 

Then they go ahead and tease me with stuff for post baby. Motivation? I think so:


I would wear this but only if I was Gwen Stefani:

Phew! Got that out of my system. I now have to implement the 6 hour rule - when excited by multiple online items wait 6 hours to do the damage. This is to reduce impulse purchasing. Totally works ;)
Do you have any good maternity places to shop?

Another piece is ready for a new home. This chair is solid wood with metal foot caps. Old. Stuffed with horse hair old. It was in need of some serious TLC.

Here is the AFTER:

All tags/markings are in tact. The upholstery is alligator embossed leather with original horse hair stuffing. Trimmed in upholstery nails. Local pick up only. Contact for more information.

Who has the Time?! [interiors]

Seriously? I'm writing this thinking of the 8 million things I have to do to prepare for the Holidays and am wondering what life would be like if I had the time to make all the fun ideas I come across.

I think these cute place cards would be fun for a Holiday dinner (read the how-to here). Maybe you can cut out a star or Christmas tree...but who has the time to pull out the exacto for a place card??! Food needs to be cooked!

These are pretty right? I would love to open my closet to all this color! All my boring black clothes would be a great backdrop.  But I have a zillion hangers, who doesn't? So who has this kind of time on their hands?!?! How-to here.

Annnnnnd then there's yarn. I can wind it around something but I cannot crochet or knit. Add the time to learn to crochet or knit and it really is at the bottom of my "projects to attempt" list.


Do you have this kind of time?
