Busy like a Honeybee

Gosh, isnt summertime supposed to be a season where you sit at the lakeside with a beer in your hand and relax?Apparently non of my clients ever heard about it:(

For to treat my stressed little brain, i bake some tasty tasty shortbread cookies last weekend, which were really refreshing due to the lime and tea in it! You should try them as soon as you can:)

And now, lets get a little silly and pretend we are 16 again and having a blast at the funfair!

uuuh romantic!

Getting married has become one of the most romantic things in modern times. women are independent and self-sufficient, there are sperm banks -  so who need the ancient model of a marriage? All the hopeless romantics out there! And of course, one need a ring, e.g. the Projection Ring! Luke Jerram hand forged this one for his wife, featuring a lense and a selection of family portraits which can be projected by putting a candle behind the photos. SO cute! And if you now thought: WOW! thats a great thing, I have to order one right now, you will get this answer: 

"Congratulations on your engagement! I'm afraid this ring was a one off, made for my wife. I'm afraid you'll have to make your own unique ring for your own unique partner!" haha, funny guy!

Back in the good old days

Now that's pretty! A turntable made from ceramics, gold plated and handpainted!This would look so nice in our living rooms, but unfortunately its just an art project at this time and not available for the masses. Too bad:(

Besame, besame muuucho!

While I was browsing Audrey Ks website this morning and falling in love with the offered dresses one after another (such as the dotted "tarte"dress) I decided it might be better to check out the accessoires section and found beauutifully designed cosmetics named "Besame". I'd even love the lipsticks if the colors would suck (which they dont), just for the name!

Lovely Ecards

I know its so hot outside one can barely do anything, but dont you think its time to send a little ecard to your family to let them know you're still alive? And to add a little extra fun, use the cards provided by Bluntcard, featuring authentic advertising illustrations from the 50s/60s adding headlines that'll make you giggle hihihi :)

Ditas Private Bar

Just read about it! Dita will open a very private bar called "Cointreau PrivĂ©"in the middle of Paris which will only exist for about a month. And -  of course- we all wont be able to visit it because its going to be all secret with clandestine identification marks such as a bracelet to get in...doubt all these requested "major people" are going to have a blast without us cool cats;)

Your pets will have a blast!

Summer allows  us to have lots of fun outside, which means our little pet-friends have to stay at home all alone. Why dont you lighten up their day with some funny things to play with? Such as: dog-Stache for your dog or a superfantastic playhouse for the cats?

The vintage modernity

Dare to say there were no tree huggers in 1899 and I'll proof you wrong;) Believe it or not, but they already had invented the Electric Car by then! The Baker Electric started as a two seater and had a top speed of 20 mph - quite a fast ride in these times! I really pity  they didnt continue working on e-cars, where would we be now if they did? (At least we wouldnt have to deal with a BP oil-disaster I guess)

Copycat Culture

Healthy! It took some days but I think I am on the track again.

I found a great and surprising video called "Versions" by Oliver Laric, showing the striking parrallels between diffrent pieces of art such as movies or sculptures. Watching the side-by-side videoclips really stunned me. Did you know that "The Junglebook" and "Winnie the Poo" have some exact same sequences? Unbelievable what small budgets urge creative people to do these times;)
