Ed Emberley: Weirdos

Happy Halloween! Last year I posted about the great Ed Emberley. He remains one of my biggest influences and an important fixture of my childhood. You can imagine how excited I was when I saw some of his re-releases at the bookstore recently. So, in honor of Halloween, I bring you his book, “Weirdos”- that shows you step by step how to create some “weirdos” of your own. (only $6.99!)

Faces in Places

Last year, I posted about how I couldn’t stop looking at my DVR without thinking it looked like a hammerhead, and mentioned this book that came out awhile ago called Face to Face– well someone just sent me a link to this site which is all about the same thing called Faces in Places!

This allowed us to prove that the survival of the forest is directly connected to what people consume.”(via Ibelieve in advertising)

Star Wars Tees

I can’t decide! R2D2? Luke? Chewbacca? Darth Vader? I’m leaning towards R2D2 or Darth- but- OMG- I love them. (sorry, inner-sci-fi geek totally just took over there, hehe)

Brocade Home miniatures

So, you know how I was freaking out over the mini West Elm Chair- well, who knew that this was some new trend, cuz now Brocade Home has miniatures too! (They’re much more expensive though) I would think you could maybe find a much cheaper version at your local doll/toy store, but still, what fun to look at!… I think my favorite would be the little mirror/dresser with the mirror.
