Das Hotel

Well, I stumbled upon this hotel...
I'm not sure how I feel about it but it looks cool. I just don't know really how cool staying in it would actually be! I like to feel pampered and watch tv at the days inn (just kidding four seasons!)

Photos are of the Das Park Hotel in Ottensheim, Linz, Austria via:

I also think i would need a pillow top mattress.
That's all, no biggy.

This is really beautiful

Kaleidoscope Fun

I love kaleidoscopes and have even visited The World's Largest Kaleidoscope in Mount Trempor, NY

So, imagine my thrill when I stumbled upon this website: !
You can actually make your own kaleidoscope and it is pretty fun for awhile!

Etsy Shop of the Day: Creation Nation

The Felt work of Julie Persons. I've always wanted to try felting but I'm too scared of stabbing my fingers!

We are loving wallpaper lately (but not taking it down, damn eggplant border in my dining room still haunts me to this day). This wallpaper brought to us by Trove is great because it combines the graphic birds we love and a feeling of the great outdoors: inside!

Moss and Cake!

British sculptor Marc Quinn is ready to unveil his $2.8 million, 110-pound solid gold statue of the supermodel, hyped as the largest such creation built since ancient Egypt.

The British Museum gets it we guess and have only released one picture so far:

Quinn also created a painted bronze statue of Moss titled "sphinx" where she appeared in a yoga pose.

So, in honor of the original sphinxes we bring you this fantastic blog about cake disasters:

So, remember kids: always enjoy art and eat cake!
