Schiaparelli Afternoon Pyjamas from the 1920s a century before its time!

From the 1920’s. This comfortable and chic indoorwear from a century ago looks just as amazing 100 years on. I would most definitely wear these clothes now and be ready for some lockdown lounging.

Florence Fang’s Flinstone house

Florence Fang decided to put up her middle-finger up to people in her conservative neighbourhood in California, with her fluorescent home and dinosaur statues. Who knew that giraffes existed during the time of T-Rex hehe? Apparently she rents this place out for thousands of dollars per night as an Air B&B. The local council have tried to sue her because of the way this place looks, however (internet legend says) she wins these court cases and uses the money from winning to buy more dinosaurs. I love you Florence…you have a fan in me! Via Reddit

Making bottle gourd siters with mastercraftswoman Tina Yu

The level of artistry in this is INSANE! The end results look like something out of a Ghibli film. I love the soothing and gentle music too, very enjoyable seeing the journey from clay pieces to masterpiece!

Things just floating by

With a speckled, iridescent membrane, the aquatic animal is almost entirely transparent—only its optic nerve, eyes, and digestive tract are visible to humans—and sightings like these are so infrequent that scientists previously resorted to studying the species only after pulling it from the stomachs of its predators.

Soothing organic shapes, amoeba, jellyfish and floating entities by Yellena James

Yellena James grew up and attended art school in Sarajevo. At the age of 18 she moved to the US. After gaining her BA in painting and graphic design at UCF, she eventually made her way to Portland, Oregon. Using pens, inks, markers and acrylics, she combines complex abstract forms and creates mystical and imaginary ecologies in her paintings.

Her colorful arrangements of organic shapes and tangled lines are at once floral and alien, organic and sci-fi. Each intimate world she creates seems to posses its own ethos and its own special ability to radiate emotion.

I like this, it’s perfect for meditation, or yoga or simply as a chilled out background music for tasks that require a lot of concentration.
