3 more days

The wedding countdown is at 3 more days until I'm a wife.
I'm the most excited girl in the whole world.

This is what I'm walking down the aisle to at our block party wedding.

I'm the luckiest

I love nerdy blogs. LOVE LOVE LOVE when they teach me nerdy things. That's why I love the Ouno blog. I feel so informed after I read their articles on architecture. It almost makes you want to sit up straighter.

Today they had this glorious article on a Vancuver fashion designer of the store Hunt & Gather who is making her own clothes for a year. I have to admit that I've thought about doing this recently. But I'm glad I didn't because this is executed 10 billion and a half times better than I could have done. She's even making her own undergarments and shoes!

My new favorite lady

Painting with fireworks
Really stunning.

I really needed this.

Busy at work and wedding planning which means blogging hasn't been a priority. Things should settle down soon though.
Until then enjoy the chaos.

Pamela Love + Spike Jones

Pamela Love + Spike Jones= lovely headbands inspired by Where the Wild Thing Are for Opening Ceremony

If I had children, their room would look like this magical forest.

Images from the book Maja, the site's not in english, but luckily pictures don't need to be translated.

House Show

I'm looking forward to the intimate David Bazan house show tonight in New Jersey. I really like the idea of larger named artists having intimate shows. Jason and Joel found out about this one through twitter. It should be really unique. Unless you're friends of the band when else would you get to see a show with only 20 other people in someone's living room.

Kan't Get Enough Kapital

I'm really loving the way that the Japanese brand Kapital takes things that feel so authentically American like denim, patchwork, hippies and Navajo prints and reinterprets them in the most informed way. I love how their outsider appreciation really gets the beauty of those traditional cultural things in ways that we take for granted.

Nina Katchadourian

I remember my Senior year of college sitting in a packed auditorium captivated by everything that came out of Nina Katchadourian's mouth. I love how smart and funny her art is. I like that it makes me look harder at what's around me. It's so playful!

Here's a project I hadn't seen, but found on her website. She says:
There is a type of lichen which is very common in the Finnish archipelago and my family's summer house sits on a large granite hill covered with it. I have always seen certain shapes as islands or continents, and decided to affix rub-on letters directly to the lichens to identify them as the places I recognized. When I had finished, the whole hill had become a kind of scrambled atlas. The Moss Maps series consists of about 20 photographs like those shown here.

An Open Letter

Dear Lizzy Janssen,
I have a serious crush on your artwork.
