I honestly can not believe this is a gingerbread house!

Modeled after Frank Lloyd Wright's, Mies Van Der Rohe, house this fine piece of edible art work is to go for a whooping 4,300 dollars. The whole project took about 25 hours with several days of extensive photo research. The walls are covered with fondant, the glass is poured sugar, and the beams and staircase are all sugar paste. Work hard , play harder.

Since I have toys on the brain here is one that I REALLY want. I just recently discovered Amanda Visell's work and I really like her pink elephant series. I love the cartoon-y style and the colors that she uses. It reminds me of old school cartoons and gift cards. This pink elephant is a vampiric one with a blood- sucking Drunky McSkunky sitting atop reaping the benefits of the victim shown in the elephant's belly.




Carrot Shake Jake is also pretty awesome

Here is the latest spread sheet, number 11, by the wonder people over at Good Magazine. Now that I don't have a Starbucks half a block away from me I don't see myself going into one but I would really like to have a printed copy of all the spread sheets they have done. Man, 131 million pounds of eggnog was sold during the 2006 season!

Now that we have arrived in Greensboro, NC my blogging will continue. It has been a rough trip with lots of financial woe but once we get our feet back on the ground life will be different. I start my new job on the 15th so I have a few days to pretty much organize the house and do nothing. Dylan and I have decided to go on a diet, which is actually a lifestyle change, that was recommended by our good friends back in SF, Alexa and Darrin. It is the pH diet and from what I saw of those two before we left it gives good results. It is a fairly strict diet because you have to eat 80% alkaline food and 20% acidic food. Almost everything we eat on an everyday basis is acidic. The main foods that are alkaline are: most vegetables (no mushrooms), no fruit (except grapefruit, lemons, and limes), no sugar, no wheat ( we are allowed to eat spelt, buckwheat, millet, and quinoa), no processed, no meat ( we can eat fish occasionally), and no dairy. If you think about it it is pretty much a vegan diet but with more restrictions. At first, I thought this was going to be hard to stick to but after making new recipes for a solid week I found that every dish we made was delicious. I know it's going to be hard for the first few weeks but I can't wait to start feeling more energized and losing that weight!! I went to the gym 5 times a week for about 8 months and didn't see a single pound shed so I realized I needed to alter my diet in order to lose all those pounds I gained. I feel very confident about this diet/lifestyle and I can't wait till all the positive aspects start kicking in.

Once I start making money and our apartment is pretty much in order I would like to start buying designer toys again. They are just so fun to collect and there are a lot of new ones out there that I want. Here is a sneak peek of the super cute Pecanpals, which are 100 wood, by Noferin. I really like Jac Jac, the little guy with two small teeth sticking out of his mouth.

I have been wanting the Palais Bulles for a pretty long time now but I figured I would post it up here just for my own reference. Palais Bulles was created by Antti Lovag in the 70's and is located in the south of france specifically facing the bay of Cannes. Now when I first heard about this place in 2005 it was up for sale for a million dollars. I think that's pretty cheap for a house that is so distinct and in the quinessential location with a view that I would die for. The idea of a bubble house stemmed from Lovag's idea that primitive dwellings, such as caves and igloos, better reflected the way humans move. As quoted by Lovag," A place where the term art of beauty, flexibilty, harmony and balance leave free rein to the imagination". Now there are over 20 different bubble houses in the south of france due to the fact that there is a workshop in Nice that teaches you how to create bubble houses.

I love GOOD magazine. I've only read two of their issues but from those two I feel I have learned a wealth of knowledge. Their website has really informative stuff on it too. They also have been doing what they call Good Sheet which is a little newspaper that you can pick up nationwide at Starbucks for free. The latest one is about what the President's did during their first 100 days in office.

Dylan and I are about to move in a week so I won't be posting on this site for a while probably. On to start another adventure in Greensboro, NC. Goodbye San Francisco, you will be missed.

On another note though, MTV has now posted every single music video they have ever shown on their web site. Pretty amazing I would have to say.

Frances Goodman's Toilet Graffiti embroideries make me go hehe

I love the art work of Yayoi Kusama. Her art work is so surreal and with the use of all the polka dots I almost feel as if I'm in the vast openness of space. I can imagine myself running through one of rooms with thoughts of childhood bombarding my mind. I like the infinite playfulness that her artwork makes me feel.

I really like some of Tim Berg's artwork. His tasty treats pieces remind me of something my best friend, Pittman, would like.
