i really want to get this for work. i see more and more reps coming in and bringing us product that will help toward leed points but how awesome would it be to just have everything all together for you already. this would make my job a lot easier! (thanks monica for the link!)

i love the relief work of gregory euclide. he uses such materials as acrylic, bubble wrap, foam, milkweed, pencil, pine cone, plastic, resin, satin ribbon, styrofoam, wax, and wood to create these beautiful works. fantastic. (via notcot)

i love these felted plant cozies and vase from papaververt on etsy!
Hand crocheted with an 85/15 wool/mohair blend, this catch-all/plant cozy was wet felted, dried around a mold to create its shape and then steam blocked. The process of felting causes it to shrink into a tight fabric.Perfect as a catch-all for your knick-knack stash or for holding a 4" potted plant. A shallow plastic liner comes with purchase to catch any drips.

what do you guys think about a real living moss carpet for your bath mat? i found this little guy on inhabitat via yanko design. my first thought is that my feet will get dirty after i just washed them...but will they? then, i wonder what it feels like on your feet. i bet it's really nice. last, i wonder what my dogs would think of it. are they really bad enough to try to eat, scratch, and/or pee on it? i'd like a trial version please.
This Moss Carpet by Nguyen La Chanh brings the outside indoors in an unconventionally natural way by placing it underfoot. The lush green lawn thrives in humid environments, which makes your bathroom a perfect place to grow.

Okay, so I have two exciting things in this post. First, yesterday I got to see the new Matte Stephens pillows from urban outfitters...in person! my boss got two of them to give to the herman miller reps for taking us to atlanta two weeks ago. all I have to say is they are so sweet, so soft and cuddly and so adorable. it looks like matte painted directly on the fabric...it's so perfect. pictured above is one of the pillows in my aeron chair at work. Second, madberries (my new daily addiction!) is doing a giveaway for two of these pillows (pictured below). So go sign up to win or go to your nearest u.o. and see for yourself what i am drooling over.
