i've always wanted a dress form! in college, i worked in the costume shop and they were everywhere. when the shop was moving to a new building, i tried to buy one of them. but they're sooo expensive! someday.

there was one at the TJ Maxx on state street last week that looked just like the west elm one...but it was shiny silver and $35! i kick myself for not buying it...but it was really heavy and i would've had to carry it home on the train and didn't want to. :(

these are so cute. i got them for my roommate for her birthday...but i got mine at urban outfitters. they were under 10 bucks per piece. like 8 for the spoon and 10 for the cutting board.

just saying...:)

if you're feeling crafty...these remind me of a project my friends and I did recently, inspired by an article in the most recent readymade.

after pics on our blog here...


it was a little messy but it turned out magnificently. we just used white clothesline but it would totally work with twine for a more rustic look.

you know...i love domino and i'm all for green living and i'm trying to make some earth friendly changes to my life, like everyone else.

but there was absolutly nothing in this issue that i could use in my life. i'm a normal person making a normal salary. i live in a rented city apartment...not a tree house or a million dollar eco-friendly rehab. i can't afford $1000 hemp sheets or $400 handmade pottery.
how about tips and leads on eco-friendly decor and design a little more accesible to the masses? affordable options? anything?

while i appreciate that the issue did comment on the inherant elitism of some eco-friendly measures (though only in reference to eating locally), i think this issue of domino has bought into that idea a little too much.
there are affordable options out there. we're all just gonna have to work on our own to find them.

Panda Cake!
It's about baby pandas gathering local ingrediants...how can you not love it?!?!

"a panda cake is a special cake, it's not like any you've eaten; it has apples and roots and bamboo shoots and clover honey for topping."
