Need an adorable GIF to brighten your day? Of course you do! And following in the footsteps of William Wegman's adorable GIF of a pup spinning around in a bowl from Friday we've now got dancing hearts for you from Chris Uphues! Now if only all LittleCollector artists would create animated GIFs... :) Check out Chris's tumblr here and see more of his work on LittleCollector here.
We are so SO thrilled to be featured in the March issue of Lonny Magazine. Not only do they do beautiful features, but we love that they're an interactive online magazine and really taking design journalism to the next level. Check out the feature to hear Chrissy talk about the inception of LittleCollector and see the Lonny Editors' picks. See more HERE.
It doesn't get much cuter than this! The team at William Wegman's studio just realized this adorable (and hypnotic) animated gif and we can't stop staring at it. And now, we pass it along to you for a Friday treat, try not to get sleepy while watching this adorable pup spin around in his bowl.
We're very excited to announce that LittleCollector is featured in this month's Cosmo Magazine! Trey Speegle's alphabet letters Y & W are singled out in a spread about Art Advisor (and friend of LittleCollector) Yolande Whitcomb. Yolande purchased a Y and a W from Trey Speegle's A-Z collection from LittleCollector during the Affordable Art Fair in NYC two years ago and we're thrilled to see the pieces living happily in her home. Pick up your own initials here, or spell another sweet message for home!
It's hard to believe this wonderful house fort comes from the Ikea catalogue, but it's a great reminder that getaways can be found as close as your own backyard (or living room in front of a roaring fire, as the case may be). Here are some of our picks of what we would pack inside an indoor getaway to get us through the rainy days of late winter.
There's not much that needs to be said about how awesome Michelle Obama is. And she proved it again the other night when Mrs. Obama joined Jimmy Fallon to explore the Evolution of Mom Dancing (as part of the Let's Move campaign to encourage families to be active together), and let us just say, does she ever know how to Dougie!
Tired of the post-Oscar wrap ups and gossip? Neither are we! Honestly, we could read the best-dressed lists all day long. And we were pleasantly surprised though to see the Best Picture Oscar go to Argo, the film about the Iranian hostage crisis in the 1970s that was gripping, fascinating and not over the top. And coincidentally, today was also the day we discovered the wonderful photoblog Humans of New York by Brandon Stanton. Not unlike a street style blog, Stanton goes around the city photographing the characters who make the city what it is while adding wonderfully short and pithy descriptions of his encounters. And we were thrilled to discover farther back in his archive that he also made a trip to Iran and photographed people on the street there. In honor then of Argo, and of Stanton's wonderful work, we're sharing some of his incredible photos from Iran featuring some of the kids he met there - proof that kids everywhere are pretty much the same (and love rollerblading and SpongeBob). All images are copyright Brandon Stanton.
Love these super cute "home sweet home" woodblocks by Chris Uphues. Perfect for outside or inside your cabin door (or apartment) they are guaranteed to put a smile on the face of everyone who passes into your home.
Today we celebrate the birth of Copernicus (1473-1543) - the scientist and astronomer who proved that the earth revolves around the sun (despite how much we would like it to revolve around ourselves :). Featuring the lovely This is my Globe Yukie Yasui.
