THINGS THAT MAKE ME SMILE

1. NBF, or nerd boyfriend.  If you want your other half to dress up like a proper nerd, this is where you should send him to find some inspiration.  There’s a NGF edition too!

2.  Photos of black cat auditions, in Hollywood, 1961.  (source)

3.  Belgian designer Liesbeth Bussche transforms urban elements in the streets of Amsterdam into pieces of jewelry.  She adds pendants to chains, she replaces regular warning tape with ribbon woven out of red and white beads, and makes earrings out of concrete balls.  (source)

4. Gorgeous limited edition riksja, they’re already sold out at anthropology, but at 2200 dollar, they weren’t really within my budget anyway.  (source)

5. Lovely packaging ideas at oh, hello friend.  I haven’t found any christmas gifts yet, but I did invest in packaging materials already, and I’m already looking forward to get started!

6.  A keychain which will never let you loose your keys again!  Buy it here.

7.  This paperclip bike rack, on campus at the Minneapolis Art Institute.  (source)

8.  Happy Cloud Coasters by Barefoot Dynasty, made out of Portuguese cork.  (source)

9.  The Little Printer by Berg: so genius!  You use your smart phone to set up subscriptions and this Little Printer will print them as a beautiful miniature newspaper, including your friends birthdays, sudokus and your daily horoscope.  There’s a video over here if this made you curious.  The lay-out of the prints is stunning, so there I have another reason to start saving up for a smartphone! (source)

10.  Neighbours by Herman Van Den Boom somehow appeared on my Facebook homepage.  He’s a dutch landscape photographer, who was fascinated by the strange combinations of two semi-detached houses which are so well represented in Belgium.  The book is available here.

    Je ‘Things that make me smile’ zijn altijd leuk, maar deze is echt extreem leuk! Die sleutelhouder is echt leuk! Net zoals de foto met de katten, werk van Liesbeth Bussche… alles eigenlijk :).

    Zoveel toffe dingen in deze post dat ik me genoodzaakt voel om m’n comment wat structuur te geven :p

    – Briljant, die foto’s van die zwarte katten
    – De riksja is geweldig maar wie heeft zoiets nu ook nodig?
    – het vogelhokje voor je sleutels heb ik ergens gezien in een winkeltje in Brussel in de Kartuizersstraat geloof ik waar ze echt de geweldige cutesy/Japanse/nog wat gadgets en gimmicks verkopen, echt een geweldig ideetje trouwens
    – en dat printertje is zo lief, ik zag het filmpje deze week! Ik heb ook geen smartphone haha, maar soms heb ik echt het gevoel dat ik iets mis, bijvoorbeeld nu :p
