Elizabeth Hawkins-Whitshed

Elizabeth Hawkins-Whitshed was a rock star. She was a pioneer in womens' mountaineering.
"There is no manlier sport in the world than mountaineering. It is true that all the sports Englishmen take part in are manly, but mountaineering is different from others, because it is sport purely for the sake of sport." 
-Elizabeth Hawkins-Whitshed

Elevator Illusion

 

Artist Andrew Walker created this shocking illusion at a shopping center in London.
I can't imagine how I would react if the elevator doors opened to reveal this!
It looks incredibly realistic. Eeps!

Breakfast at Tiffany's

"It's better to look at the sky than live there. Such an empty place; so vague. Just a country where the thunder goes and things disappear." - Holly

Kimem

 

I spotted these beauties on R29 and I can't stop looking at them.
Kim Eichler-Messmer hand dyes her fabric with her own dye recipes for her Etsy shop Kimem (Get it, Kim Eichler-Messmer - Kimem.) They are great enough to use as an everyday blanket and exquisite enough to be hung on your wall as the art that they are.

Scottish Cawdor Estate

Colin, seventh Earl of Cawdor, and his wife, Isabella have transformed their estate into an incredible marriage between what is old and what is new. Their use of color perfectly complements the beautiful canvas they have to work with. Of course, I was sold by the tree house.

Kate Spade

Kate, oh Kate, how I love your bright colors and perfect use of pattern.

Hearts

I am absolutely loving the sweet heart details in these pieces.
I'm especially drawn to the cutout heart in the Dansk black dress.

Building Illusion

 How rad is this installation by Buenos Aires-based artist Leandro Erlich?!
The illusion is all thanks to a huge mirror, allowing visitors to look like they are scaling a building, falling out a window, or clinging onto a ledge.

Camouflage

Peruvian artist Ceclia Paredes camouflages herself into her beautiful botanical paintings. These images are so intricately beautiful. I especially love that she has left her hair exposed.

The Bathtub

If you ask anyone that knows me well, they will tell you that I am no cleaning extraordinaire,
but I have learned the greatest cleaning trick. The key is a fabric softener sheet!
It can easily remove the horrible buildup in your bathtub.
(I refuse to use the word scum here!)
