Team Tattly launched balloons yesterday! YAY! So many Feelings! Can you RESIST?
I laugh every time I see this CATS KILL T-Shirt. But I guess it’s only funny if you live in the NYC area and are in the on the joke. (There’s an area upstate of NYC called The Catskills)
This made me smile. Here’s to keeping it real.
This poster by Anthony Burrill made me laugh.
Smile Mirror meets People from Berk İlhan on Vimeo.
A few weeks ago I had the pleasure to meet Berk Ilhan, the inventor of Smile Mirror. It’s an emotionally smart mirror that is unlocked with the power of a smile. Totally wonderful. I would totally hang one in my home.
Thought Hopper 3000 – an online destination for a 5 minute vacation by Vera van Wolferen. Beautiful. And mad respect for the x-acto knife skills.
I am feeling this GIF by Thoka Maer these days. Stay cool everyone!
Below The Surface is an archaeological project of the North/South metro line in Amsterdam. At Damrak and Rokin in the city centre, archaeologists had a chance to physically access the riverbed, thanks to the excavations for the massive infrastructure project of the North/South metro line between 2003 and 2012. Rivers in cities are unlikely archaeological sites. It is not often that a riverbed, let alone one in the middle of a city, is pumped dry and can be systematically examined. The excavations in the Amstel yielded a deluge of finds, some 700,000 in all: a vast array of objects, some broken, some whole, all jumbled together.
So. Many. Stories! See all the objects.
(Thank you Wesley)
My current favorite Tattly: Mermaid by Jessi Preston.
(This post was originally titled “Happy Friday”. Yes, I was a bit confused this morning.)
I live for these joyful NYC moments: I stood on a subway platform waiting for a train to arrive when these two women showed up, casually taking an impressive amount of balloons onto the subway. Urban heroes! Swipe right to see the video. Watch the guy on the right very very slowly realize what’s happening. I LOVE NYC!
May we all walk through life and seemingly difficult moments with such confidence.
This photo of Katie Sokoler as a human sized balloon bouquet made me smile.
13 years ago today I started this labor of love. And, I yet have to grow tired of it. Thank you for reading. I appreciate you. So much!
Happy my blog birthday to you!
Helge Simon’s Hair Affair brushes make me a little uncomfortable, yet I am intrigued. They are made of artificial human hair. And, there is a Kickstarter. I can’t stop giggling.
So proud of my friend Ingrid Fetell: A few weeks ago she gave a talk on the topic of joy at the prestigious TED Conference and now here it is, featured on the TED Homepage. Just like her, I believe in the importance of joy!
Simone Giertz is my hero. She creates useless machines. They make me laugh.
In a turn of tragic events, she found out shortly after giving this TED talk, that she has a brain tumor. I am sending her all of the love. The world needs her and her silly inventions.
This reality hand hook series by Harry Allen is so wonderfully weird. I’d give them a home.
