FM.Marche.Itani Si Che BELLISSIMA✪Le ❙t e Amo<3

The Marche is one of the 20 Regions of Italy. The Italian name Le Marche is the plural of marca, and literally means "the Marches", originally referring to the medieval March of Ancona and nearby marches of Camerino and Fermo.
The Marche are located in the Central area of the country, bordering Emilia-Romagna and the republic of San Marino to the north, Tuscany to the north-west, Umbria to the west, Abruzzo and Lazio to the south and the Adriatic Sea to the east. Except for river valleys and the often very narrow coastal strip, the land is hilly. In the nineteenth century, a railway from Bologna to Brindisi linked the Marche along the coastline of the entire territory. Inland, the mountainous nature of the region, even today, allows little travel north and south, except by rough roads over the passes.

Beautiful Cabin in Connecticut Forest Built for Under $4,000

Beautiful Cabin in Connecticut Forest Built for Under $4,000 | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
In the spring of 2013, Connecticut-based carpenter Dave Herrle completed the Wee House, a beautiful cabin nestled in the woods of Westbrook. The project was imagined on New Years Day with Herrle and his then-fiancé (now wife) moved in by the first week of May. Impressively, he built the entire thing for under $4,000 and without the use of electricity. 
The two-storey, 11 by 14 foot space sits on a wooden platform and provides a balcony that's perfect for taking in views of the forest. Herrle used salvaged wood from different job sites and reclaimed windows to construct the home. A cozy kitchen and living area are downstairs and feature bright decor details like a Mexican terracotta sink. The upstairs is accessible by a ladder and includes a lofted bedroom with built-in shelving. Although the couple lives at the cabin full time, Herrle has another house on the property that they use for showering and occasional cooking.
Herrle wasn't always a carpenter; he had a desk job after…

Whimsical Floor Lamp Cleverly Designed as a Giant Pencil

Whimsical Floor Lamp Cleverly Designed as a Giant Pencil | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
London design studio Michael & George add a bit of whimsy to the average floor lamp with their creation called the HB Lamp. The nearly six-foot-tall light takes the shape of an oversized pencil with its illumination coming from the eraser and a power cord extending from the sharpened tip. Adding to the lighthearted nature of this product, they’ve crafted it so that the black cord creates the illusion of a drawn line.
HB Lamp marks the inauguration of Michael & George’s Stationery Objects home decor line. It has a solid Cedar wood body, spun brass, hand-blown glass, and a rubber tip. Customizable colors are available, and you can even personalize it, too. The piece is both fun and well-designed, which is the creator’s intention - to elevate familiar office items.
While purposely playful, the studio wanted to pay homage to the humble writing tool. They say, “Our hope is to inspire light bulb moments within everyone who comes in to contact with the ‘HB Lamp’ (just as the traditional HB…

Patrick the Oldest Living Wombat Celebrates His 29th Birthday

Patrick the Oldest Living Wombat Celebrates His 29th Birthday | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
On August 24th, Patrick the Australian common wombat celebrated his 29th birthday. While that might not sound that old, this occasion means that the adorable marsupial is the oldest living wombat in the world. Patrick has been at the Ballarat Wildlife Park in Victoria since 1986 and garnered much attention since that time.
A wombat’s life expectancy is between 15 and 20 years old. In the wild, they fall prey to predators, bushfires, or end up as roadkill, but in captivity they generally live longer. The oldest wombat ever recorded was 34-years-old, so Patrick has six more years until he breaks the world record.
Patrick was found as a baby on the roadside after his mother was killed by a car. Ballarat’s managing director, Greg Parker, remembers it clearly, stating, “He was a rascal then. Once he was in the car and climbed over to the driver’s side, putting the car in gear and drove it through the neighbor’s fence.” The park staff tried to release Patrick back into the wild on several…

Playful Paintings Suggest How Animals Are Created

Playful Paintings Suggest How Animals Are Created | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Mexican artist Ricardo Solis creates amusing paintings that playfully illustrate how animals are created. In the whimsical works, viewers become witness to an imaginative process that explains how a zebra gets its stripes, how a leopard gets its spots, or how a flamingo gets its colorful pink feathers.
Beautifully composed, yet incomplete animal forms are surrounded by tiny human figures that work to build each creature's colorful details, feathers, stripes, or spots. Solis uses oil along with black Indian ink or Chinese ink on canvas to capture interesting textures of paper combined with the newly created forms.
Solis' bio explains, "As a professional artist, he tries to express in his work the beauty and perfection of both [art and nature], along with his belief in the undeniable existence of a Creator. He also often captures the innocence of childhood with his touching and evocative scenes of a child's imagination."

Adorable Topiary Sculpture of a Sleeping Baby Bird | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
If you happen to find yourself in Nantes, France, be sure to head to Jardin des Plantes, a large botanical garden. There, you’ll find this adorable topiary sculpture titled Poussin endormi (Sleepy Chick) by French artist Claude Ponti. It features a larger-than-life baby bird whose relaxed pose looks like it’s in the middle of a nap.
The delightful work showcases Ponti’s great skill in crafting a topiary. He makes evenly-textured, rounded forms that are punctuated with metal details like long, thin legs and a bright yellow beak. There are even tiny eyelashes that dot the bird’s closed eyes!
This topiary is part of a larger exhibition of Ponti’s work that’s available for view through October 20 of this year.

Beautiful Scarves Give You Wings Like a Bird | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Shovava, meaning "cheeky" and "playful," is a unique line of women's clothing that features amazingly intricate natural details often found throughout nature. Created by Australia-based artist Roza Kamitova, each gorgeous and elegant piece is covered with the artist's hand drawn paintings and prints.
Kamitova originally worked for eight years in the fashion industry until she decided that the world could use a bit more creativity in clothing designs. So, she began reworking thrift store items, altering and reconstructing them, and hand-painting them to create completely unique pieces. In 2011, Shovava was launched and the beautiful, nature-inspired line was born.
“I observe nature and find inspiration in the smallest details," explains Kamitova. "Maybe it’s a butterfly’s wing or the patterned cell structure of a leaf. Maybe it’s a feather or a raven perched on a tree limb. I take in what I see in the natural world and then create my pieces.”

Whimsical Narratives Blur Elements of the Past with the Present | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
Dancing with Costică is an imaginative series in which Australian photographer Jane Long transformed old photographs into colorful and creative compositions. Long used original glass plate black and white images, originally created by Romanian war photographer Costică Acsinte, as the foundation for her work.
She produced surreal stories by colorizing each print and then digitally blending together all of the unique elements into one striking composition. Each imaginative scene is a blend of the past and the present into a strong and whimsical narrative. The stiff, serious subjects look a bit out of place in the colorfully dynamic worlds created by Long.
The project was initially intended as a way to brush up on her retouching skills, but when she came across the Costică Acsinte Archive on Flickr, Long was hooked. "I became fascinated with the images and their subjects. I wanted to bring them to life. But more than that I wanted to give them a story," explains Long. "I will probably…

We have seen 3D printing in a variety of forms including unique floral arrangements, miniature figurines, and creative sculptures. Recently, designer Noa Raviv took things to an entirely new level by using the innovative process to create a fashion collection. Raviv developed her series, Hard Copy, as part of her student work at Shenkar College of Engineering and Design. The artist drew upon computerized patterns of grids and lines as the inspiration for the modern styles.
The 3D portions of the designs were created using Stratasys’ Objet Connex500 Multi-Material 3D printing technology. Raviv combined the bold black and white graphic patterns with pops of bright orange to form the bodices and ruffled shapes. She then paired the exaggerated tops with simple straight or sheer skirts. "The tension between the real and the virtual, between 2D and 3D, inspired me to create this collection," explained Raviv.

Polish photographer Izabela Urbaniak captures the essence of youth and the freedom of summer in this stunning collection of black and white photographs. Since 2012, Urbaniak has been developing the series, titled Summertime, which documents her two sons, with friends and cousins, as they explore their world on hot summer days.
There is a simple and childlike wonder that radiates from every scene. Urbaniak states that the series is inspired by her own childhood and the days that she used to spend visiting her grandmother in the countryside.
The boys are seen peeking through fences, playing with puppies, fishing, acting silly, running through fields, lounging around in a hammock, and enjoying memorable days of bonding with a sibling. "These pictures represent summer without computers and TVs," explains the artist. "Only idyllic nature and playing children."

Dutch artist Marjan Teeuwen creates incredible installations from the demolition found in abandoned houses. Using architectural debris from a building’s rooms, she transforms the spaces into spectacular sculptural works by meticulously layering the collected fragments into aesthetically-pleasing arrangements. The series, titled Destroyed Houses, highlights Teeuwen’s ability to turn destruction and neglect into something beautiful.
The artist doesn't choose to excavate her sites, but instead fills them with carefully stacked tiles, rocks, and even home goods like furniture and books. Teeuwen groups together similar colors and uses holes in the floors and ceilings to enhance her designs. She’ll pair light-colored tiles with darkened wood for a bold, stunning effect. This Tetris-like placement creates order among chaos and gives the works a monumental, awe-inspiring presence coupled with a feeling of tranquility.

Ingenious Knife Grates and Softens Butter Making It Perfect for Spreading | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
If you keep butter tucked away in the fridge and are dismayed when it’s hard to spread afterwards, then we have the perfect knife for you. The Stupendous Splendiferous ButterUp is an innovative utensil that quickly turns cold, hard butter into thin, easy-to-spread ribbons. This means that there won’t be any more of it ripping apart your morning toast!
The Sydney-based firm Design Momentum developed the product, which uses a built-in grater to aerate and soften the butter, thus making it easier to use. A wide, stainless steel blade helps accumulate the grated butter and gives it more surface area for spreading. It’s dishwasher safe and you can choose from a classic polished finish or a modern satin one.
ButterUp is available for preorder via Design Momentum’s Kickstarter. They’ve already achieved full funding for the campaign with over a week left, so it’s not too late to get one of your very own.

Hyper-Realistic 3D Artworks That Looks Like Elaborate Patterns of String | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
For German designer Christoph Bader, the central theme of his project is based on processes that create shapes and patterns, resulting in artwork that look anything but digital. Limm is a series that, at first glance, appears to be elaborate patterns of string, but are actually constructed on a computer. 
The pictures begin as an algorithm or set of rules that trace a force field and produce a three-dimensional model of wires, which are rendered in an application. The results are captivating images with hyper-realistic shadows and lighting. 
The possibilities of the visual outcomes are infinite, which is lucky for those who admire Bader’s work, since he has created something truly exquisite.

Kathy Knaus has recently been discovered for her creative capabilities with cakes. She designs everything from sugary sushi rolls to a scaled-down fashion studio, but her most exceptional work is her multi-tiered library cake. In this fabulous creation, Knaus has hand-designed the interior section of a public library.
The miniature display features a tiny table, with two gumdrop reading lamps, and a small chair placed directly in front of rows and rows of books. A model globe sits on the main level with a rickety ladder that leads up to the second floor, and the shelves on both levels are stocked full of colorful book covers. Knaus paid careful attention to every detail, including the bricks on the exterior of the building as well as the tiles on the floor of the interior space. The design is almost too fantastic to actually eat!

A unique experience is an added benefit of these boards. Originally, they were designed to enhance safety on night paddles, but the extra feature also gives you an incredible view of the nighttime sea and wildlife that aren’t normally visible during the day. Each board is equipped with about 40 feet of lights and gives the illusion that those riding it are somehow levitating.

From a very young age, self-taught Chinese photographer Fan Ho began documenting the world around him. In this collection of work, titled Hong Kong Yesterday, he captured the essence of the city throughout the 1950s and 1960s. He was fascinated by the hustle and bustle of the urban environment and enjoyed breathing in the fresh air as he wandered and explored.
Every one of his black and white images was very purposeful. Ho would sometimes find a spot that had good light and he would wait for his subjects to appear, rather than the other way around. As a result, his work is filled with captivating lights and shadows that produce visually striking patterns and arrangements throughout the compositions.
Ho had many adventures during his time on the streets. "Catching me in action, some girls combed their hair and asked me to take their photos again," he said. While, at other times, people were not so amenable. Ho recalls one experience with a butcher: "With a knife in his hand, a pig…

Historic Rotary Snowplow Cuts a Path in the Snow for Trains

Historic Rotary Snowplow Cuts a Path in the Snow for Trains | Le It e Amo ✪ | Scoop.it
While it’s still summer for many of us, we can’t help but think about the upcoming cooler temperatures. This historic and impressive piece of machinery is the rotary snowplow, and it’s used for clearing train tracks after a heavy snowfall. The large, circular set of blades on its front are rotated by an engine that’s held within its frame. But although it contains an engine, the snowplow isn't a self-propelled vehicle. This means that one or more trains must follow behind to push it along the tracks as it cuts a path in the snow.
Canadian dentist J.W. Elliot originally designed the snowplow in 1869, but he never built a working model. His invention was later expanded upon by Orange Jull, who tested prototypes using sand, and eventually had a fully-functioning machine to use during the winter of 1883 and 1884.
Nowadays, most railroads have eliminated their rotaries due to the high maintenance cost. They prefer to use fixed-blade plows and bulldozers that are significantly cheaper to…

New York-based photographer Richard Silver captures how buildings and monuments change in appearance from day to night. Instead of exploring this in several images, however, he shows the progression in a single photograph. Silver’s ongoing series is titled Time Slice, and it gives us an interesting perspective into places like the Colosseum in Rome or the Suleymaniye Mosque in Istanbul. We see how the mood of a locale changes once the sun starts to set.
To construct these pictures, Silver shoots about 36 photographs at intervals over several hours and then combines them into one composition. The result is a cohesive-looking image where we see the entire building or monument mixed with wonderful bits of abstraction. Looking closely at each individual sliver, there are fragments of different people that were visiting that day.

Instead of only working on the face and neck, the New Zealand-based makeup and special effects artist cleverly painted her hands to look like a tiger.

On her Deviantart page, Hawker writes, “[I] thought I’d try something a little out of my comfort zone.” She creates an illusion with her hands rather than relying on expressive facial features, and it pays off.

When Sarah Goer and her husband moved into their home, their son was only 2 years old. Attached to his bedroom was a small storage space that they decided to keep a secret from him until he got a little older. So they covered up the entrance to the space with a dresser and left it untouched for two years.
Recently, for their son's fourth birthday, the Goer's decided to transform the small storage space into a secret hidden treasure room. They hired a contractor to redo the entire room with drywall, wood floors, and a fresh coat of paint.
Sarah had one wall painted with an bold accent color and decorated with small furniture where her son could read, create, play, and relax. On his birthday, the Goer son received clues that led him to his birthday present—his very own secret treasure room hidden behind his bedroom wall. Needless to say, the gift was a great hit and their son now has his own space to let his imagination run wild.

Located off the Mediterranean coast of Spain is the Weave House, a residential project designed by architects A-cero. The single family home occupies over 10,000 square feet of space and is divided into three storeys. Its eye-catching facade features striking white lines that wrap around the building and are contrasted by black glass. The effect is a bold simplicity that’s stunning to see.
Each plane of the four-sided house is different in design, but all follow the same visual cues and embrace a sculptural approach to the exterior. A-cero plays with the scale, width, and height of the lines, and even creates a layered effect by alternating the white Dupont Corian with the thin, dark windows; it evokes a sense of playfulness when they’re combined. And although nothing is completely uniform, the Weave House still feels cohesive.
The large windows allow for ample amounts of natural light, and the interior and exterior intertwine thanks to multiple terraces and porches. There’s also a…
