Do you like chiquita bananas? I've been humming the Pina Colada song to that previous question all morning. Anneke Jakobs designed this DIY project from recycled chiquita banana packaging. For step by step directions click here. (via trendsnow)

This has got to be the most amazing engagement ring I've ever seen.
Working with a jeweller and the vinyl record manufacturer Dubstudios, I created this engagement ring for my partner Shelina. The ring has a 20 second recorded message (my proposal) etched onto it's surface and can be played back with a miniature record player. 100 lbf/in² of pressure was required to cut the silver ring, using a vibrating diamond stylus. The ring is also a homage to Thomas Edison who made the first sound recording machine - the phonograph in 1877.

here are two great diy projects that use recycled tshirts from this old dress. the first is a braided neckpiece and second is a knotted headband. i usually cut up old tshirts for cleaning rags around the house, but think i'll try one of these projects instead next time.

VM Houses by BIG + JDS = PLOT. These have got to be some of the most striking balconies that I've seen and really like the thoughtfulness of not stacking them one on top of the other. Now, each balcony gets a little more sunshine overhead. I would have hated being the person drawing the elevation of this building though. (via archdaily)

stribrna skalice house, designed by prodesi/domensi, is the perfect weekend getaway home. the wood ceilings and simple white palette make the interior feel so open and clean and i love the coffee table and the inset glass around the fireplace too. (via archdaily)
