I watched Notting Hill with the baby today.  I hadn't seen it in years, it's still better than I remember.  In the opening of the movie Hugh Grant's character talks about Notting Hill and why he lives there and loves it so much.  It made me really want to visit, it looks so beautiful.  My senior year of highschool I went to London and surrounding areas, but never made it to Notting Hill.  When I go abroad again, I think I will definitely make time to visit.  Here are some images of what attracts me to the area.

This reminds me so much of Thom Yorke's album cover from The Eraser posted justed below.

I'm pretty excited!  I have found a beginners pottery class.  January 26- March 2nd, on Wednesday nights.  And when the course is over they offer pretty cheap memberships with 24/7 access to the studio and equiptment.  I really want to get my Etsy shop in the works, and I want decent stuff.  I want to take more lessons and learn new crafts (pun inteanded).  Eventually I would like to take some knitting classes so I can get better.  I want to learn to knit socks, or mittens, anything besides scarves!  Here are some pieces of pottery inspiration.

I watched the greatest movie on Netflix last night.  Loves of a Blonde, directed by Milos Forman.  It was made in Czechoslovakia in 1965.  It was just so funny, and sad and cute.  The lead actress, Hana Brejchova, is such a babe.

A month or so ago I came upon this Paris Alley home in the New York Times Home and Garden section.  It looks so amazingly beautiful - it was originally built in the 1800s as a haberdashery.  I love all the portholes, and the kitchen, and the open stories, and so much ashy unstained wood, bedroom window ceiling, and garden?!  Article and photos here: In Paris, a 19th-Century Dream House

How I feel today


Monday, September 27, 2010


I am obsessed with F. Scott Fitzgerald.  Everytime I go into a used bookstore I scour the shelves for anything of his.  These covers by Coralie Bickford-Smith make me want to scream!  They're so beautiful.  I have never heard of Flappers and Philosophies... but I need to find it, even if it is just a boring old copy.

Online window shopping

I like to consider myself a proffesional internet window shopper.  I can spend hours at a time selecting and removing items from my cart.  And once I have concocted the most impressive collection and minimized my items so that the cost is somewhat doable, I sign off, and spend the rest of the day daydreaming about the items I will never recieve.

I came across  designer Natalie Woods' site,  Something Else today.  She is based out of Australia, and her inspiration for design comes from art, music, nature, and pop culture in general.  She also has a pretty neat blog - mostly art and music stuff.  I like the idea of looking at the actual art pieces that inspire an article of clothing.

My life now

"Meanwhile the men stood in calm little groups, chatting, smoking, pretending to pay no heed to the rustling animation of the women's world.  But they could not really talk, because of the glassy ravel of women's excited, cold laughter and running voices.  They waited, uneasy, suspended, rather bored"  - D.H Lawrence

My two week vacation to Maine is fast approaching.  It consumes my mind all day.  I just can't wait to lay in the sun, go swimming and sailing, run around and barbeque.... hmm only a few more weeks.  Here are some images.
