Well, well, well! It has been some time since our last Top Five Crushes. With so much going on over here, this little feature has taken a bit of a back seat. But don't worry, it will be back as soon as we are on top of things again! For now, we thought we would share with you a little peek at our personal favourite movie props and ideas
... it' hard not to be inspired with this Top 5!
First up is our favorite little mechanical horse from the whimsical and dreamy film The Science Of Sleep. I don't know about you, but this stole our hearts when we first laid eyes on it. Who wouldn't want this charming little pony at home? I think I could marry the person who came up with this. With his stitching and button eye he really is a heartbreaker, right? Ouch!
Ahhh, vinyl LP's the Amelie way! We are pretty obsessed with records and crepes at Vivid HQ - to imagine that the two are combined is simply mind blowing. We're not sure which clever beaver came up with this concept, but we would make this our next studio purchase if such a thing existed! Both pancakes AND vinyl records - how can you not justify that buy? Do you think you could eat both too? Hee hee..
We aren't quite sure why we are so in love with these paper blossoms in Lost In Translation, but they are just so simple and beautiful; they make us very happy! We would love to fill our little bathroom with these and dream of Japan when we are having a splash in the bath... one day we shall go :)
Oh Miranda July. We love her so much and cannot wait for her next movie!
We have all had a little "me" and "you" shoe fantasy like in Me And You And Everyone We Know at some point in our lives and it is so great to see that we are not alone! If only we had the courage to up-cycle our shoes like hers.... mind, our mothers would probably not take too well to that one!
Our last crush today comes in the form of another paper wonder. Starring in 500 Days Of Summer, this stunning paper crane tree is something all homes should have. We are going to create one for Vivid HQ over the weekend - a project well over due! If you would like to learn how to make these beautiful origami birds too, click here for a how to...
Happy dreaming everyone!
