Blue Dot Real Good Experiment


Blu Dot Real Good Experiment from Real Good Chair on Vimeo.

When we opened our SoHo store in 2008, we were introduced to the resourceful culture of “curb-mining”: the act of finding furniture and art on the street. Now that a year has passed, we decided to conduct a curb-mining experiment of our own to celebrate our one-year anniversary in New York.

On November 4-5, 25 Real Good Chairs were dropped around NYC, free for the take. Many were GPS-enabled. Watch the film to see what happened.

Directed by Andrew Zuchero
Produced by Supermarche
Concept by mono
Technology by Tellart

Ahahaha! I’m off re-posting things my friends have posted again, but this is just TOO glorious to not! Love the editing, the concept, the CHAIR! And man every single one of the INCOs seem to be seriously awesome people.

I’d so love to see just how ‘sit-able’ that chair is…

Symphony of Science

 

They had me at hello Attenborough! ♥ Mythosidhe posted this video on her livejournal this morning and it filled me with absolute love – and the need to fling myself at the Symphony of Science website to absorb and download everything I could get my wiggling fingers upon.

I’d love to have all of this on projectors all over the walls of a space while a party was going on, a soundtrack of minds & voices lyrically filling your head with learning.

Everything is so beautifully put together and fabulously compelling. AND ITS SCIENCE! ‘Tis true, ‘I find the reality thrilling‘ ♥

I’ve been clearly caught napping: Pride & Prejudice the Comic

Pride & Prejudice the Comic

Released last year on – I kid you not – April first, I had NO IDEA someone had converted Pride & Prejudice to a rather sumptuously illustrated five part comic. And by someone, I mean MARVEL! Mein gott!

Though it appears only issue one’s cover is developed as a flashy women’s magazine, the rest of the editions look delicious. Lords I hope Pulp Fiction have them in stock. Not that I can afford them but that’s clearly beside the point! Its Pride & Prejudice for crying out loud! A girl can’t ever have too many adaptations. Just because I already have a number bordering on a dozen in quantity, definitely does not exclude the possibility of getting my delighted fingers on these.

ILLUSTRATED, PEOPLE! ILLUSTRATED!

For your viewing pleasure: Issue #2, Issue #3, Issue #4, & Issue #5

I’m sure post posting this the delectable mythosidhe will inform me that she posted about this a year ago, or the gorgeous librarian type deasilvae will berate me for forgetting she told me about it forever ago. xD BUT! Better late acknowledging awesome than never? Plus I… Can’t think of a decent excuse. Chewbacca?

ETA: By all accounts, it appears that the interior of the comics don’t match up to the expectation of the covers. This is the hour of my discontent!

MATRYOSHKA MEASURING CUPS?! Where have you been my WHOLE life?!

Russian Doll aka Matryoshka Measuring Cups. THEY NEST!!

Russian Doll measuring cups?!?! Fredflare, stop teasing me with your awesome, AWESOME items. KTHX!? GODDAMN I’ve been eyeing off Bec’s newer measuring cups for a while now, thinking I should update mine (which are actually her old ones from when we were all in Uni xD) and then, THEN, I find these.

MEASURING CUPS, THAT HAVE GOOSHY CHEEKS. And… THEY NEST!?

The grabby hands have reached maximum, the fingers are flinging themselves about so fast you can’t hardly see them. THESE CUPS HAVE REDUCED MY HANDS TO SCARY FINGERLESS NUBS! Or at least the appearance of that.

Maaaan, and I just HAD to be baking right this moment, staring at my clearly now inferior cups with the pursed lips of one who really shouldn’t slight that which has been so useful for the span of nearly a decade. But come ON my already-owned cups, why don’t YOU look happy to see me?!

AUGH THE PRETTIES!! Nordstrom Goldtone Bib Necklace

 Nordstrom Goldtone Bib Necklace

FEEL THE PRETTIES INFUSING YOUR PERSON AS YOU LOOK UPON THIS NECKLACE! Whilst scouring the web for near-impossible-to-find box files, I somehow managed to get trapped perusing polyvore‘s bib necklace category and stumbled upon this piece of gorgeousness.

DO WISH I could afford it to wear to Bec’s wedding, but alas with shipping etc it’d end up being $100. WOE!

PS: HAPPY NEW YEAR EVERYONE! xD

Abenohiya aka Cadenza’s Super Dollfies

Oops, I angelic-ed again! The sweetest of little Christmas Cherubs


AUGH! ♥ I hadn’t really been looking at people’s doll sites or flickr photostreams for over a year now because it was SUCH a temptation/exquisite torture which I just could not afford (health or monetarily wise). But today I got a notification of abenohiya/hiyaya friending me on flickr and upon clicking to see if they’d be someone I would friend back I was filled with want for my own doll crew and a massive photoshoot like I haven’t had in a dog’s age.

A whole mess of her shots are just divine, and totally fit in with my theme this week of christmas-y link-spam. *delight*

Funky Fabrix – Patterns for drooling upon

AUGH FUNKY FABRIX! Why you gotta tease me so, with your pages upon pages of fabulous patternry? And why do you have to be IN AUSTRALIA so that your shipping is not ludicrous and your prices need not be converted. At least when I hit up Reprodepot, Fabric Tales or Super Buzzy they have the decency to not spell their name in an obnoxious fashion, and put enough detractors in that I can more easily talk myself out of purchases.

Well, slightly more easily. Just. In a sit-on-your-hands kind of fashion…

BUT NO, Funky Fabrix have the audacity to be for all intents and purposes: LOCAL. The cheek! xD

1. Kokka – Dala Horses Red 2. Russian Nesting Dolls & Daisies Brown 3. Large Whimsy Doozie Brown 4. Pet Deer Brown 5. Moorish Blooms Aqua 6. Garden Party – Chocolate Damask

I can’t work out if the Moorish Blooms are a historical iconography nod, or if they’re just called that because YOU WANT MOOOOORE!

Pretties and practicals, possibly under pressure


Under a minimal quantity of arm twisting, largely by my lovely not-quite-but-totally-are-in-laws, I capitulated to putting together a wishlist for Christmas this year. Though my Vintage Nettles blog is largely a wish-list of sorts, this time around (unlike last time I tried to make a wishlist for a gifting event) I actually can pinpoint items I’d really adore!

Though I’ve realised that I’m in MASSIVE UBER OVERCLOCKED nesting mode, as 90% of the items I originally came up with are practical (but PRETTY!) items that I feel we need for our home, and it was actually a struggle to put ‘frippery’ on the list even though there’s surely a lot of items I’d love to have. Priority shift, I must be getting old. Or stealth clucky. Possibly both. ;)

Make Believe

Make Believe floral Accessories

Make Believe is a simply stunning short-run site that I just stumbled upon whilst keeping an eye out for bridesmaids accessories while I write my Christmas Wishlist.

Very small amount of stock atm (their MEN section has items from the womens section in them that I’m not ENTIRELY sure pull off unisex) but what they have there are CERTAINLY statement pieces of emblematic gorgeous.

DO WANT! *catches glimpses of pie-shaped clouds*

20 (ish) Fetchingly Fine File Folders

Standing by the counter of my local Angus & Robertsons yesterday, attempting to agree on what engagement gift we were getting for friends I spotted some GORGEOUS file folders that actually SCREAMED my friend Es. Being unable to afford them at the time I left them on the shelf but thought I’d find them when I got home on the net.

GUESS WHO WAS COMPLETELY UNABLE TO RELOCATE THEM ONLINE?! Its like they only exist in that one A&Rs, and no where else. O_O;;; xD I thought I’d found them at fredflare & anthropologie, but alas, ~~PREMATURE EXCITEMENT.~~

But in my search I came across a metric buttload of gorgeous file folders, and as storage solutions and attempting to keep track of paper in a much more efficient fashion has been on my mind a lot lately – I lose paper like nobody’s business – I thought I’d do up a little share and squee on some of the nicest ones. :D
