Etsy Find: Rings to make you smile

How much fun are these rings? I especially love the mustache. And coffee lovers get their own ring as well. Check out SmilingSilverSmith's etsy shop for more.

Sol LeWitt: Structures

The Public Art Fund has put up an exhibit by Sol LeWitt in downtown Manhattan at City Hall Park called "Structures."
From the exhibit website:
Sol LeWitt, an artist whose profound and radical innovations allowed us to rethink the very nature of art, first found his mature artistic voice in the three-dimensional works he called structures. Sol LeWitt: Structures, 1965-2006, featuring 27 works made over more than 40 years, is the first outdoor career survey of this extraordinary and influential body of work.
Looks like something interesting to check out, although I sadly doubt I will actually make it in person.
Extra bonus - I love the way the exhibit site displays photos of the exhibit. As you scroll through, the photo which was half hidden on the screen in black and white bursts into full color.

MoMA Modern Playhouse

I have fond memories of playing with both my Fisher-Price playhouse and also with paper dolls. Never the two did meet. Now, meet the MoMA Modern Playhouse, which combines the two, incorporating the kind of design you would expect from something out of MoMA. The house can be arranged in any number of configurations, and there is a family to inhabit it as well. Read an excellent review here.
