I'd sport this sweatshirt in a heartbeat. I like that it can be taken a few different ways. I'm not sure if the kids today still describe things as 'ill — there should be a rebirth if they don't.

Ever since I was a little girl I have been fascinated by adornment. All kinds of adornment. I thought I had been pretty versed on tribal adornment rituals until a few months ago when I saw images of Yll Citaku's video; Nusja Jone-Our Bride on Imprint. Lubinje brides of Kosovo are meticulously dressed and made up for their wedding day. It's done to ward off the "evil eye, and discourages gossip and speculation."
I was just looking through my bookmarks and found the images again so I thought I would share. I searched for the original video and just watched it for the first time. Wow — it's absolutely dreamy.
I stumbled on Leslie Williamson's photography site and was introduced to her beautiful photographs, but also had the pleasure of learning about fiber artist, Kay Sekimachi. Williamson took photographs of Sekimachi and her work for American Craft magazine.
I recently moved into my own apartment here in SF (it's actually my old apartment I lived in 4 yrs ago. Yes, same unit. Weird, I know.). Looking at Sekimachi's home and sculptures sure are inspiring for decorating ideas...not to mention her necklaces just to wear. Gorgeous.
I'm not much of reader. I know, it's not something to brag about. But the older I get I find that my attention gets worse and worse. Neither of these things keep me from buying books though (although it took me buying an iPad two read two full books in years -- who cares if they were both collections of short stories!).
I've had my eye on Fireworks Studies by Pierre Le Hors for some time...there is something so beautiful about his images of fireworks. I'd read this book anyday.
