I am obsessed. If I were going to plunk down some change for a new swimsuit this summer it would be for this one. I’m usually a vintage one-piece only kinda girl, but I love most of the styles in this shop. I even love this two-piece.
Oh, and I would also wear this.

Not surprisingly, this awesome macramé playground doesn’t exist anymore. What a shame.

These are pretty much the most inspiring photos I’ve seen in weeks. Just amazingly beautiful.

Perhaps you’ve already heard about Pacific Standard Time, especially if you’re a Southern California resident. If not, check out their site and start planning what events and exhibitions you want to go to!
“Pacific Standard Time is an unprecedented collaboration of cultural institutions across Southern California coming together to celebrate the birth of the L.A. art scene. Beginning October 2011, over 60 cultural institutions will make their contributions to this region-wide initiative encompassing every major L.A. art movement from 1945 to 1980.”
I’m super excited about these upcoming shows and events in and around LA. I suppose I should also mention that my jewelry line is going to be featured in the Orange County Museum of Art’s shop in conjunction with their Two Schools of Cool exhibit and State of Mind: New California Art Circa 1970, which is their contribution to Pacific Standard Time. I’m currently working on a batch of one-of-a-kind pieces for them, mainly with vintage materials.

You may remember my post about Makelike’s Cactus collection (which is still my favorite). Well I just noticed that they have a forest collection as well which documents flora of the forest, including weird and wonderful fungi. Love these dishtowels! Even more here including some lovely wallpaper.

If I had $1,200 to casually spend on a rug, it’d be this one. Then I’d force all of my visitors to remove their shoes before entering my domicile.
