Goody two shoes come out on top! This goes out to J.F.

Origin of the book and phrase “goody two shoes”. And the Adam Ant song of course! I posted the link where he is shirtless the longest though the audio quality is questionable.

a fuzzy haired girl in a soft sweater, remote in hand. funny that the bunny ears on the television are in fact called bunny ears and now they are a part of the past. this lovely drawing is by Camila do Rosário. you can find more of her work here.

Il ya certaines choses que l’on caches pour les montrer… Montaigne

Should I translate? It is less romantic in english… “There are certain things we hide, in order to show them.”

Found via foxes in breeches. View large here.

View collage large here.

Audrey falls asleep while baking and dreams herself into Cakeland. Then Devil’s Food Cake steals away Angel Food Cake during her wedding to Ginger Bread Man [after they met in the Garden of Eatin’]. And Cop Cakes and Animal Crackers come to the rescue! Not to mention the cupcake parade through town, Cake Walk and Pastry Bar cancan girls. This is probably the cutest pastry themed animation I have ever seen. A pre Valentine’s treat <3

wearable wireframe bird by polyscene.

i found Polly Verity’s work as polyscene through flickr. i love her miniature wire and paper sculptures of mythological creatures. some of which were shown in the London Comme Des Garcons store in 2007, housed in their own glass domes. a perfect home i think. her work is mainly elegant, mathematically curved & folded paper art which she allows to manifest playfully in almost every way imaginable. as much as she is working with paper, it strikes me that she is working with light. and here for your further perusal are some of her dresses & headpieces. lovely.
