...under the snow. 1 more b/c i couldn't not. this owl slept right through a snowfall it seems... hope he's ok under there. must be chilly. makes me shiver just lookin' at him.
but no time to post.... end of the month billing and such have me all over the place. would rather be all over the gorgeous globe like these pretty butterfly embellishments. been seeing a lot of this lately, and what a wonderful idea. will figure out where this beauty came from and give it its due when i'm back on normal time... a couple days it should be. til then.
i hate band-aids. they smell funny, they hurt coming off and they give me a rash that sometimes lasts months (sensitive eastern european skin genes, i've been told). these band-aids, on the other hand, i love. they wouldn't solve any of the aforementioned issues, but they'd look good whilst stinking, painfully pulling out my hairs and giving me a rash.
i really do. it's shameful. the contents of my fridge can be stated in a line or two: half lemon, onion, american cheese, string cheese, parmesan cheese (what?), condiments, coconut water, v8, olives. i kid you not. i just made that list by memory, that's how much i need some fucking groceries. but if you think for a second i plan on stepping foot inside a grocery store anywhere near thanksgiving, you must be out of your ever-loving mind.
Paper is many things: a carrier of text, illustration, history and emotion.
Jeremy May has captured the beauty of paper via a unique laminating process. Littlefly jewellery is made by laminating hundreds sheets of paper together, then carefully finishing to a high gloss. The paper is selected and carefully removed from a book, and the jewellery re-inserted in the excavated space.
Each piece is impossible to replicate, and is unique to the wearer. The beauty of the jewels extends within the piece: text and images pass all the way though the object, only exposed at the surfaces – giving a tantalising glimpse of the book within.
these rings are some of the most brilliant i have seen in a very long time. gorgeous. unique. and made of a book!! what? yes! want proof? the book from which your ring was born becomes your ring's unique gift box. you can even contact Littlefly to have your favorite book turned into your soon-to-be-favorite ring. a truly original and beautiful idea. can you tell how much i love it.
no small task on this monday morning, mamika. moments after heading out the door i was greeted by a torrential downpour. remembering my 9am meeting and knowing there was no time to go back and change into a skirt and wellies (my torrential downpour bottom-half of choice), i plodded onward. flash forward 25 minutes, and i could be seen scolding myself out loud as i unsuccessfully navigated puddle after puddle after puddle. flash forward another hour or so and here i sit, my pants still soaked from the knees down. so soaked that the bottom hem of my pant came undone and dragged in the puddles. i feel pretty.
by Jon Rafman. It was only a matter of time before someone took the time to siphon off notable photos from Google's colossal streetview project. Sure, middle fingers abound, there are hookers aplenty, bare butts galore, people prone on dirty streets, and some profoundly depressing images... but seriously it's worth a look. not my best sell, i know, but i think you'll see what i mean if you take a gander.
