I ran across this artist’s website randomly one day and fell in love with it immediately!
Stuart Haygarth takes found objects and creates lighting fixtures with them. It is amazing! His work includes glassware, lamp globes, eyeglasses, and other things.
He balances between sculptor and photographer in his works. Judging from the information on his site, he seems to consider himself a Photographer. What do you think? Is he more a photographer or a sculptor?
The images below are from a light he designed from popped party poppers from the Millenium New Years Celebration in London. It is such a beautiful shape with playful colors…
…but just look how amazing it is when the light inside is turned on. Who knew discarded trash could be so beautiful?
Check out his website at www.stuarthaygarth.com to see more examples of his work.
I wasn’t going to post anything again so soon…but when i saw the new Office spoiler pics I wanted to write about the Office quick! 🙂

Happy Monday! I just thought I would share some photos of the Minneapolis Public Library. It is such an amazing building and definately a commanding piece of architecture in the Twin Cities.
Have you visited the Mpls Library? What do you think of the architecture?
Since I am living alone, I was thinking it would be fun to get a pet. But the thing is I don’t want all the work that goes into having pets. I would love to get a kitten, but I also want to be able to leave my place for weekends without having to find someone to cat-sit.
So basically…I am thinking about getting a fish. 🙂 haha! I feel like a little kid talking about getting a goldfish. Anyways…there is this awesome catalog called Chiasso that sells these hangable golfish bowls/vases that they call Mod Pods. I think its a pretty smart to think about having your fishbowl on the wall. Who came up with that??? Its much more exciting than just having a plain old fishbowl. If they werent so blasted expensive I would already have bought 2 or 3…
What do you think of these Mod Pods? What kind of fish do you think I should get for my new place?
Check out the rest of the catalog…it has some really cool modern & creative stuff. For example: I love this NYC themed doormat…but would you really want your place associated with the sewer?
Back in the good old days when sitcom tv was still awesome FRIENDS dominated Thursday nights. Who else misses that?? I sure do…
So I am going to throw in some trivia questions that are a little bit harder than you might be used to. Quiz yourself and your friends…
Question 1. What does Chandler watch at 2’o clock on a Wednesday?
Question 2. What special combination (three things) does Chandler use when plucking Joey’s eyebrows to ease the pain?
Question 3. What nicknames do Monica and Chandler have for the building tenant that Joey calls “Rusty”?
Question 4. What was Monica doing that caused her to miss Rachel kissing Gavin on the balcony?
Lets hope maybe this fall season will bring us something entertaining to watch again. Other than The Office, the best show on tv these days.
