Thank Goodness For Pretty Thank You Cards

Fall Home Inspiration
Autumn-inspired pieces to spice up your place. Read More »

Finding the motivation to send a proper thank you note is almost impossible–unless I have a stack of beautiful thank you notes sitting on my desk, in which case I’m so excited to use them that I start thanking everyone for everything. Thank you, 5th grade teacher, for believing in me! Thank you, best friend, for being my best friend! And so on and so forth. Now I want to buy a pack of these gorgeous flowery postcards, and send one to the artist to thank her for designing them. [$10 for 10 cards, Rifle Paper Co.]

Austrian artist Alexander Riegler must really want a meeting in the ladies room, because for his latest project, he’s installed a one-way mirror in the bathroom of a local cafe in order to capture what women really do in the bathroom. Riegler swears he’s not a perv, and promises that the mirror only captures women at the sink — not the actual bathroom stalls — and says that a note is posted informing women that they’re being watched. Riegler says the project is meant to “stir people into a discussion of voyeurism and surveillance,” and as a comment on Big Brother culture. In January, the mirror will be reversed to allow women to watch men’s faces while they stand at urinals, so hooray for equal opportunity creepiness! [Huffington Post]

Calm down. Baby’s First Baby is not a real toy. It’s art, dammit! The piece by Darren Cullen will be part of a group show called “Moral Holiday,” showing at the Northern Gallery for Contemporary Art. Of his human pregnancy wormhole, Cullen says:

“It seems like the majority of news websites covering this have misunderstood my intentions and decided I’m making a comment on reality TV shows exploiting teen pregnancies. I’m not. It’s about the way these toys intrinsically train girls to have and care for children while they are still only children themselves.”

Leave it to the French to come up with a fresh, creative, avant-garde use for a practical product from one of their most iconic brands: conceptual artist Fabrice Hyber crafted a 330-pound, one-meter cube, titled “1m3 de Beauté” (or “One Cubic Meter of Beauty”) of solid Yves Saint Laurent Rouge Pur Couture lipstick in shade 1 Le Rouge. Hyber (who, it’s worth noting, is male) told WWD of his masterpiece, “[Lipstick is] a material that is very supple, especially in a large quantity. The material permanently moves. It is a work that is never finished, which is always evolving. It’s a living oeuvre.” This makes total sense to me, as I know from experience that the buttery Rouge Pur Couture formula tends to make a melty “living oeuvre” out of my stupid face. The sculpture has just gone on show at the Palais de Tokyo in Paris, if you happen to be in the neighborhood. Bring a lip brush. [Elle UK]

These toothy oxfords, made with a pair of British dress shoes and over 1,000 dentures, are just an art project at this point, but let’s hope they don’t become a trend. I have a hard enough time remembering to floss the teeth in my mouth–I’m not sure I could handle the extra responsibility of flossing my shoes. [Fantich & Young]

Start Saving Up, Hipsters: This Bike Costs $70,000

Classic Schwinn not doing it for you anymore? Yearning for a ride that will really get you noticed? How about this one-of-a-kind beech wood bike? Inspired by a famous 19th century chair designed by Michael Thonet (side note: who are the people who are keeping track of famous chairs? Should I know about famous chairs?), it will cost you $70,000, but hey, it’s a small price to pay for total exclusivity. Careful though: that 5-figure price tag doesn’t include brakes.
