Talk about abundance...

Spätzle is in your Neighbourhood


Rilla Alexander made 20 blank toys and sent them to artists around the world. They brought their toy to life and then sent it back to her. The project was called Neighbourhood and Spätzle is one of the toys from the project.

From Rilla (about Spätzle):
"He doesn't like to talk much because when he does his spätzle hair gets in his mouth and he eats it. It can be dangerous to eat too much of yourself."

Chance

This wonderful brand has made its rounds on the blogs, but I couldn't resist posting.  The elegance of their writing and images are so true to the simplicity and sophistication that is "Chance".

"... the striped t-shirt is the paper clip of personal style." 'nuff said.
