“From tiny houses, tool libraries to downloadable design, integrating the concepts of open source sharing, collaborative consumption and “building tiny” into our lives is something that we know is better for the planet. From Wisconsin comes the Little Free Library, an amazing little social enterprise that has all of these elements, aiming to build a network of tiny, community libraries the world over — no library card needed.”
Love these in every way possible!
Drilling holes into lumber gives bees an opportunity to live in cells, as they do in beehives. The goal, according to Denizen Works principal Murray Kerr, was to create installations that “are a cross between graffiti and community service, creating small moments of interest in the city.”
my friends at doeboutique farm just added a mama and her 10-day old twin kids to the menagerie.
i’ve never spent quality time with goats before this, and i gotta say… i’m pretty smitten!
mama phoebe and her kids albert and faeria are so sweet, friendly and loving.
oooooh! remember my nubian goat farmstead poster? here it is in the flesh!
i ran across this book last weekend at the heath store in los angeles.
gorgeous story told only with images, no text. those of you that remember my and shinpei’s treeless book from way back know i’m a fan of this type of storytelling!
as i’m downsizing my living and working space considerably i chose not to buy the book, but thankfully a rep reading put these images online and gives us a nice book summary.
check out these custom print-to-order posters and the custom bathroom they were made for! i worked with the client directly so that the poster backgrounds match the bathroom floor tile colors. fun! beautiful! hurray!
it reminds me of a visit a few weeks ago that i forgot to post at the time… below you’ll see my sea lion seas poster and one of my “vintage” hanging ribbon mobiles have pride of place in my friend bishop‘s apartment bathroom!
yesterday i was working in a southern california hammock in speckled 80 degree avocado tree shade, today i’m back in my portland studio after trudging through a chilly rainstorm and getting completely soaked.
this was my second annual february trip to southern california and i’m beginning to think it may be a good idea to spend next year’s january and february drawing the spectacular succulents and blooms there! so different than the ones we have up here! anyone in social in need of a temporary caretaker or house sitter?!
