One Of Those Days

when you don't know where the pieces will land 
but it is quite amusing to watch them scatter

how's the breeze over there?

Death In The Sea

Thomas Campbell teaming up with Bonnie "Prince" Billy. Bluuuue.

I've recently started appreciating the little things in life, especially when you come across miniatures working on tomatoes or partying on a cupcake. So hilarious and inspiring. I'll be at the local hobbies shop down the road if you need me...

Rencontrer de Nouvelles Personnes

When a lovely friend of mine, Jaime, who is breathing the Parisian smokey air as we speak sent me this concept from the blog site room service,I couldn't help but think of Jen and The BFF Gabi. What an amazing concept from Jim.
Every Sunday evening for the past 30 years he has hosted a dinner party open to anyone who can come. "People from all corners of the world come to break bread together, to meet, to talk, connect and often become friends. All ages, nationalities, races, professions gather here, and since there is no organised seating, the opportunity for mingling couldn't be better. I love the randomness. I believe in introducing people to people. "

Who wants to meet me in Paris on Sunday?

A beautiful book about living.

Several times a week I would stroll down Kastanienenallee 
to peek into Anuschka Hoevener's studio boutique in Berlin.
I have a visceral response to her clothing. 
The lightness and weight is just right.
Stay warm and snug my dear.

Our seasons are different...moving into autumn over here is nice and all, but that usually leads to winter and I'm not known to be the biggest fan. If I could travel every six months to visit, I would have an endless summer. * sigh* If you don't already know, Kat Heyes is an amazing illustrator. 


Living Options

this is our kingdom

these are our thrones

will you join us?

I love you!

Move With Yourself Or With Others

"The magic of dance, young man, is something purely accidental.
The irony of this is that you have to work harder than anyone else 
for the accident to occur.
Then, when it happens, it is the only thing in your life 
guaranteed never to happen again. 
This to some is an unhappy state of affairs,
and yet to others, it is the only ecstasy. 
Perhaps, then, you should forget everything I have said to you
and remember only this:
The real beauty in life is that beauty can sometimes occur."

There's something about greys, pinks, turbans and sea shells that remind me of Jen. If we were to escape into a paper world I think I would take us here, to Gracia and Louise. We'll be sure to send everyone a postcard.


The Little Things

Spring 2009

Alex creates the most beautiful & whimsical magazine collages. 
Rodarte's clothing compositions remind me of a collage come to life.

Cut, Sew and Paste

One day Jen asked me to visit this site and find Kat Macleod, a Melbourne-based artist whose exhibition I happened to to stumble into about a month prior to Jen's advice. That was a happy coincidence if I've ever heard of one. ( Subscribe to Michi girl for Kat's illos daily and also to see what my weather is like along with some fashion forecasting, mostly from Oz designers;)

When Jen and I met it was on a grassy field on a sunny day about 9 years ago...She has been a constant source of inspiration and a delight to have in my life, even now as we are separated by a large and beautiful sea... S is for sexy stilettos and stockings and stitching. Something we both do alot of.
