I have never considered myself anything more than a spectator of Project Runway, but now –
Tim Gunn, I’m ready for my closeup.
I’ve discovered the secret to a design with a perfect fit in less than day –
Fabrican, Ltd. in London invented spray-on fabric way back in 2000. It’s been used in the medical field for dressings, bandages, casts and wound healing products. But now the company is hoping to branch out into fashion, giving designers — like me — a way to be even more creative.
Seamless garments! Custom clothing! Recycled wear! And no more sewing models into clothing before they hit the runway…
…just spray her in!

Seems like we spend a lot of time these days debating what’s in the food we eat….and depending on the day, landing on different sides.
It almost kills the taste.
Photographer Caren Alpert takes a different — or should I say much closer – view. She uses an electron microscope to look at the foods we eat to reveal different landscapes, textures and patterns.
She makes the ordinary exotic. And maybe it’s just lunchtime…
But she’s making me hungry.

You know how you see something and think it’s a joke…but then it turns out to be a real thing?
That happened to me today on Facebook.
A good friend posted this cartoon:
I like a good fart joke anyday, so I could appreciate the humor. But then I noticed the logo and “Flatulence Filtering Underwear” at bottom right. That’s a joke, too…right?
Not even. It’s real.
The logo belongs to Shreddies, which manufactures flatulence filtering undies for men and women. These specially-made garments contain activated carbon cloth that help filter and eliminate odor.
Shut the french window!

It was another ‘walk the dog in 16 degree weather’ kinda morning.
I’m not in Florida anymore.
So when we got back inside, it was all about the beverages. I started with hot tea. Transitioned to hot water with lemon. Which inspired Vitamin Water Zero (lemon flavor, of course).
Maybe that’s why I stumbled upon these way cool straws on Etsy.
Or perhaps I just needed a little touch of spring.
(I’d settle for temps in the 30′s.)
