Hello dear readers, and welcome to the beginning of a new week, or the end of an old week, depending on your perspective. I’m enjoying the final two days of a beautiful long weekend in the Berkshires. This is a photo of Saturday night’s sunset in Stockbridge, Massachusetts. Simply breathtaking.
These Pink-Painted Cockle Shells, carefully placed and adhered to a pink board is a work by artist Tony Feher (1956–2016). I first saw the piece from the side as I entered the gallery from another room and was intrigued by how much the shells looked like the suckers of a octopus (see detail photo, below)! It may look like a ‘kid could do this,’ but consider the thought behind it in the scope of the artist’s oeuvre. The work is actually part of a series entitled It Didn’t Turn Out The Way I Expected from 2016.
Tomodachi (2020) is the Japanese word for ‘friend.’ This tiny Pink Bulldog‘s friendly appearance is enhanced with a coat of crystals made by Swarovski, an Austrian company that produces crystal glass used in jewelry and optical instruments. Combined with artist David Flores‘ organic contours and intersecting areas of pink and red, the surface of the canine’s body resembles a form of flamboyant camouflage.
Photographed as Part of the Exhibit, Judson Studios: Stained Glass from Gothic to Street Style on View Through September 12th, 2021 at Forest Lawn Museum in Glendale, CA. Find out more about the Exhibit at This Link.
Never underestimate the power of a fantastically designed display to draw people into your booth. Image is important, and the owner of Dash of Pep clothing and accessories got everything right — starting with her foundation color of an irresistible Hot Pink with lots of pink accents and pink props!
No UV Needed just about says it all when it comes to the fluorescent glow of this Hot Pink Nail Gel from L.A.Girl. Just sitting in the bottle, it looks like a tiny work of art — and I’m sure it looks great on your nails as well!
When I was a kid, household appliances were not designed to also be cute, just because they were meant to be used by children. Specifically, I recall a humidifier that we had to have in the bedroom I shared with my brother when we were probably 3 and 4 years old respectively, because he suffered from asthma. That thing looked like a spacecraft from War of The Worlds — and while it might have relievedmy brother’s breathing difficulties, it was pure nightmare-fuel for me.
If only Crane humidifiers had existed in the sixties, my parent’s might have been inclined to purchase a model from their Adorableline — featuring, well, adorable animal-shaped, multi-function humidifiers — thus sparing my tender psyche from an enduring trauma. Because, seriously, how darn cute is a little pink Unicorn?
Ever on-the-hunt for the elusive Pink Thing, I was magnetically drawn into the newly-opened Swarovski store on Broadway by their vast display wall of exciting pinkness!
The concept of displaying the brand’s jewelry and small crystal trinkets nestled against a wall lined with various-sized shaped compartments — punctuated by the occasional expressive mannequin — is just genius. Creating a ‘Life-Size Jewel Box’ concept, the store’s transportive design not only provides an immersive shopping experience, it’s obviously also highly Instagram-able.
Located at 542 Broadway in SoHo, the store (which opened in May 2021) is part of Swarovski’sInstant Wonder identity rebranding. And while it’s not shown in this post (for reasons which will be immediately clear) the other half of the store is entirely green. You’ll want to at least pop in when you are in the area.
