Interesting developments

Tuesday, 30 September 2008

I didn't think it was possible for me to love the designs of Isabel Marant more than I did, until I saw this look from her Spring 2009 collection. Now if only I could afford it...(vogue.fr)

I now want to make all my mittens elbow length.
They look so cozy!
While there aren't any apple orchards in my area, I still want to make this cute tote from the purl bee.

Mociun Scarf (made with a potato print!)
French Braid
Mocassins
Fair Isle Cardigan
Denim Skirt
Stay Gold top. (reminds me of The Outsiders by S.E. Hinton)

Nature's first green is gold,
Her hardest hue to hold.
Her early leaf's a flower;
But only so an hour.
Then leaf subsides to leaf.
So Eden sank to grief,
So dawn goes down to day.
Nothing gold can stay.

-Robert Frost

I still love crazy braids piled on top of the head, aren't they so beautiful. There is also nothing like sitting on a porch or stairs enjoying a good cup of tea on a crisp fall morning. Not to mention, the beautiful chocolate birthday cake that would make anyone smile. Potato stamp hearts are so adorable, maybe on a notebook, Lena style? Oh, russian dolls make even better pillows. A fall supply kit? How adorable. I hope we get to see what the orange wool becomes! Can't get through fall without a scarf, and this lace one is beautiful... not to mention her red hair. Challah is so intricate, I want to bake bread more often. And an acorn on a string.

Season one was released on Dvd today so that's how my night was spent.

Time for a Change

Monday, 8 September 2008


Fall weather has arrived and it was time for a change. This is my first dramatic hair cut in two years, and it feels good.

On another note, I was given some "blove" by fleur_delicious of Pacific Rain. Thank you so much! I stopped by her blog to find many a delicious looking recipe to try.
According to the nomination I have to share my five favorite blogs and a new discovery, so let' s get to it.
Small Souvenirs. I check Katrina' s blog everyday to see what new inspiration she has found. I want to live in the world she creates.
Karla's Closet. Karla's style is so masculine/sexy, and very different from my own. I love her blog because she inspires me to branch out and try new styles.
Dank En. I would love to live in Ashley's world of textiles, baking. Creativity abound!
Team Knit. A blog full of humor and knitting inspiration from two rad girls.
Sea of Shoes. A mom and her daughter and a whole lot of shoes.
~>O<~. I love Lena Corwin's designs, book collaborations, Printing by Hand, and well everything else she posts.
And my new discovery would be Pacific Rain.
