this dress on hot July nights, hand-wash it and let dry in the sun on hot July days. Repeat, every summer for the next 5 summers. Result: a dress approximating Lucy Harmon's.
AND: One of my favorite blog posts, on one of my favorite movies.

One of our favorite ladies, the beautiful (and sweet!) Kelly (aka The Glamourai), just posted some photos of her apartment. I'm particularly fond of her gilt-gold dollar store dinosaurs; the pair of goofy-elegant rhinestone and brass leaf earrings she picked up from the store a few weeks ago sits in between the scales of the stegosaurus.

brunch a few weeks ago, and now the sandals for me are up on Net-a-Porter, and I have spent too much time amortizing the $1095 price-tag with an non-mathemitican approved formula of costs per wear + the desire for perfection = still too much. I am slapping myself on my wrist, and closing that window, but oh! sandals, I do love you.

Vision for the weekend: Technivorm purring, Tarot Deck burning, Alice Coltrane turning.
Weekend guiding spirit: rosewater glitter cake.
Obstacle to realization of weekend vision: I don't bake.

My amazing friend George, (who I have known since childhood, and who painted this map for me ages ago before he was an International Superstar Artist), is having an opening for his second solo show at P.P.O.W. tomorrow, March 15. The detail and beauty in his work needs to be seen in person to be believed. (The blue jay above is HUGE!)

We have been eyeing Ila's beautiful wares for years and finally decided it was time to take the plunge. She takes traditional designs and puts enough of a spin on them to make them discreetly luxurious and just a bit more dramatic. So very beautiful.
See here for Ila&I.

My friend Tami introduced me to Edward Gorey when I slept over her house when we were about 13 years old. We stayed up late laughing uproariously at The Epileptic Bicycle. (What??) So now, here I am, quite a number of years later (ahem) and so very pleased to be selling his work. What comes around goes around, right Tam?

Have we rhapsodized to you about the velvet pumpkins? (If not then you haven't been face to face with Leigh in the store lately.) Starting at $10, and really completely useless - unless you count joy and magic as useless qualities. (Although a prudent customer mentioned they make great pincushions. Smartypants.)

The color of Neko Case's walls, offset with the black lampshade, really speaks to me. When my husband was little he thought purple was a mystical color. I think he still does. I've always loved a certain shade of lilac, and violet even more, but thinking of my husband as an 8 year old, channeling creative energies in a purple tee shirt makes me love these shades all the more.
