Washington-based painter Tyree Callahan modified a 1937 Underwood Standard typewriter, replacing the letters and keys with color pads and hued labels to create a functional “painting” device called the Chromatic Typewriter. Callahan submitted the beautiful typewriter as part of the 2012 West Prize competition, an annual art prize that’s determined by popular vote.
Don’t dump your fancy beverage bottles. Strip the labels and turn them into a striking bud-vase display like this one. And/or keep your eyes open at flea markets and garage sales…heck! even the dollar store…for cute bottles you can use as bud vases. So help me God, if you ever pay bud-vase prices to get this bud-vase look, I’ll come looking for you. There’s just no reason to, even if you’re sitting on a pile of money. Which you’re not. -ts
