Annawili Highfield

I'm opposed to keeping birds as pets, but I would definitely keep several of these paper bird sculptures. More of Annawili's talent can be seen at her site.

Also, I've changed things up a it around here seeing as its this little blog's 4 year anniversary this week. I'm in the process of making tweaks ere and there. Hopefully you like it!

Derriere Restaurant

I love the idea of a restaurant made to feel like someone's home, like Derriere in Paris. There looks like so much to explore, complete with different rooms...and table tennis! The NYTimes recently did a review on it as well with more great photos.

Sight Unseen

I could spend waaaay too much time on the wonderful website Sight Unseen. It profiles creative people/projects/studios, etc. If you're feeling uninspired, pop over there and browse. Quick fix for a creative block!

Seeing as it's International Women's Day, I thought I'd post a little something on several early 20th Century women I've been reading about lately who are pretty cool, as well as inspiring.
