How did I not know about this book sooner?
It was written by a Scadinavian design duo, looks absolutely amazing and I can’t wait to get my hands on it. I guess it’s not too early to start knitting for next year!
While I’ve been dealing with moving house I haven’t had a whole lot of time to post but that doesn’t mean I haven’t been busy…
While visiting my in-laws in New Mexico I was able to tour this Bart Prince house. He’s my favorite architect (that I’m not married to that is) so this was a real treat. This was his first house out of college and it has its quirks, like no privacy and high radon, but it was beautiful and I loved it.
I also picked up the Alexander McQueen book that features his recent met exhibit. It’s still hard to believe that he is gone.
This book is absolutely beautiful, these are the moth printed end pages. I want a fabric version so bad…
I attended the birthday party of a good friend and amazing artist who gave all of her guests these little cups that she made. I can’t look at them without thinking of her and being inspired by her energy and creative spirit. Thanks Pam!
I have recently become a bit obsessed with all things 70’s and have had my eye out for the perfect 70’s clogs. I had almost given up when I found these at the Goodwill for a whopping $2. They’re surprisingly comfortable too.
I spent a crazy amount of time trying to pick out a new perfume. I finally decided on Alien and I’m really glad I did. It smells like grape at the very first moment then settles into this great scent that kinda reminds me of the Lulu I wore in high school but better.
I have actually been sewing too. Working on lots of alterations and contract work of course but also some pretty exciting projects that I can’t actually tell you about until they come out…
Hopefully things are going to calm now that fall is around the corner and I can get back to some sort of routine. I hope your summer was wonderful, are you looking forward to fall as much as I am?
I received Juxtapoz Handmade for my birthday, apparently begging on your wish-list really works. It is even better than I thought it would be, full of huge full color photos of some truly innovative handmade goods and with really interesting text by the artists discussing their work, medium, and what drives them. This book is a vibrant, juicy collection of color and texture that I’m sure will inspire me for years.
It would be way too hard for me to try and pick a favorite, so I’ve randomly selected a few of the artist to show here.
