L&G Item in their new home

I spotted the two mustache gentlemen I sold in their new home on flickr! I sold these awhile back to Christine at Jackrabbit.
The guys looks perfect in their space along with their new mustache friends. :D
She has a great space and you can see more, here!
I just love seeing where things end up and how people incorporate it in their space! It makes me so happy to see my findings in a nice home like Christine's. Yay!

Project Lost&Found...by Melissa, from New Jersey

Today we get to see the new home for Mr. Blue Roly-poly Mushroom! He looks very happy and radiant with all the bright colorful surroundings in his new home. Especially next to Ilee's letterpress calendar, which I have one myself as well and I absolutely adore her work! (She's based in Seattle, too!) Melissa has a collection of all sorts of mushrooms. So I'm sure Mr. Mushroom feels right at home!
Check out photos of Melissa's adorable collections around her lovely house here.

Thanks Melissa for submitting the photo!

Project Lost&Found...by Yvonne Chia, from Singapore


This is from Yvonne from Singapore who adopted the rhino and the pair of white ceramic birds from L&G.

Now in her space!
Birdies and Rod Stewart, how great is that!?The rhino stands oh so contently...This is Yvonne's neatly arranged collection of Kokeshi dolls from Japan. I'm starting to collect these as well. The art behind making these precious Kokeshi dolls is beyond amazing. Most dolls are traditional and folk-like, but there are some dolls that are very refined and modern. They use simple painted lines to indicate their facial expression and personality. They also many times incorporate unconventional natural material such as straw, walnut shells, twigs, sea shells, clam shells and all sorts of other thing as their body parts. It comes in all shape, size, and form, and they're all very animated and adorable.

Thanks Yvonne for submitting these photos!

Project Lost&Found...by moi, from Seattle

Wooden building blocks + Painted white plastic animals

=Wooden school, house, and barn building blocks on my windowsill with bunch of plastic white animal figurines lined up behind!!
From: Seattle, Washington
Why building blocks?? I've always been obsessed with wood things and toys, and those two things combined makes me very happy....VERY happy...as if I'm a kid again. I can be happy with these simple basic toys. So happy that I don't even care whether I have a Wii, the Harry Potter Lego set, or the newest Bratz dolls (those things are absolutely appalling in every way)...what can I say....I'm a simple person who appreciates simple wooden toys.

p.s. There's a folder on flickr dedicated to the whole project(click link for information) so as more people submit you can see more stories. So it won't just be about me anymore....thank goodness, because I'm starting to run out of materials!...that's actually a lie, because I can always talk about food!

L&G Project: Lost&Found....by You

Dylan and I would like to invite L&G shoppers from all around the world to participate in a little project we came up with....

At Ladies and Gentlemen we do it because we believe in the longevity of objects. We hand pick each items because we believe that each object deserves a good owner who can appreciate its character, charm, and history.

So our goal with Proj. ‘Lost & Found by you’ is to celebrate this cycle of turning abandoned objects into found treasures by involving everyone to document the objects in their surroundings and write a short blurb about why they've chosen that particular item and how they're incorporating it into their lives.

We hope that people will get involved and will find it interesting to read the stories and see the growing list about each object from everyone.
