Happy Thanksgiving Weekend!

This amazing artist-J.Morgan Puett, was brought to my attention by design blogger 
It seems like the perfect mood to convey for the cozy, lazy, lethargic days following Thanksgiving. Unless of course you are one of those mad people who are out and about shopping in the frenzy of black friday.
Myself? I am tucked in front of the fire with a new magazine and the good intentions of making holiday wreaths with my mom. 
to each their own! whatever you may be doing, enjoy this little break...

"Conceptual installation artist J. Morgan Puett began her career in fashion design (and garnered acclaim for her art installation meets retail concept stores) until in 1997 she created the artists' colony Mildred’s Lane. Decay and chaos blend seamlessly with beauty and considered collections. Referencing the past it is a living working art installation. (Images from J. Morgan Puett and The New York Times.)" - Desire to Inspire dot net

swede love

this blog is pure magic.
it is especially enchanting when viewed on the tiny i-phone screen
(which is the way i first experienced it)
something about how each image fills up the screen brings you even deeper into the author's world.

each image holds such a story and a life to it, i found myself unable to look away...wanting to remain in this beautiful and enchanted world of childlike things and organic whimsy.
give yourself a bit of time to enjoy

a note of sadness

I just heard that 20 year old model Daul Kim has passed away.
she was quite a talent- with an irreverent personality and a quirky sense of style.
she will certainly be missed by those of us who enjoyed her work,
and more importantly by those who knew and loved her.

my condolences

russh to get this one

always a fan of Russh Magazine
While living in New Zealand I was completely spoiled by the $4.50 cover price
now I have to shell out a good $15!
But, they do such a superb job of creating a story and place that is both magical and yet completely relate-able that I simply can't resist!

a winter's dream

these images draw me in, and make me want to live in the magical worlds beyond the page.
I recently re-visited Camilla Engman's site for a chance to glimpse some of her most recent work
I was certainly not disappointed.

wilfred kinda girl

my sweet lil sister gave me the most beautiful sweater from this designer for my birthday.
it sparked my curiosity as I had never seen this line before.
after a bit of research I figured out that it is sold exclusively at Aritzia Stores Nationwide.
the fabrics are exquisite, the designs are unique, and the aesthetic is completely romantic yet boyish.
i'm in love...

a little haven for sleep and creative inspiration in a whirl of disorganized perfection
there is a word for this-
"Wabi-sabi:The aesthetic is sometimes described as one of beauty that is imperfect, impermanent, and incomplete"-wikipedia
