Dooce is, to start with, a really freaking impressive site. It's designed and built entirely by Heather Armstrong, the woman whose blog it is. Now, if you can get beyond gaping at the pretty, I recommend checking out some of the photo archives. She has three categories of photo: Daily Photo (random artistic photos), Daily Chuck (photos of her dog), and the newest, Daily Style. Daily Style is the one I like best, mainly because this woman takes amazing photographs, but also because she has an awesome sense of style. Through her, I have made so many delicious discoveries.
I will enumerate:
- The Curiosity Shoppe, a San Francisco-based gallery of miscellany. I fell in love with this unique cell phone attachment, and desire it for my own nefarious ends:
- Green Chair Press, the Etsy store of artist Susan Angebranndt. Not only does she make fun, eclectic art, but she does it all on an 1890 platen press. She combines many things I love--handmade crafts, vintage methods, and bright primary color combinations. The example is entitled Flirtation no. 2.
- Petit Collage, which sells the original, handmade collages by artist Lorena Siminovich. In addition to the handmade and bright colors, I also love the incredible variety of papers which make their way into her largely animal-themed works.
