GUYS i’m going to go watch alice in wonderland tomorrow. not just tomorrow, tomorrow morning. yes, that’s how eager i am. there’s always something strange about sitting in a dark cinema when it’s light outside, but there you have it. anyway, in honour of this momentous occassion, i thought i’d share some alice in wonderland imagery i enjoy.
there was a point in my life where bags were to me what shoes are to some women – i usually couldn’t pass up buying one. but i’ve been using the same leather bag for the past 3 years (quality over quantity, eh?) and don’t really plan on trading it in until it falls apart at the seams. that being said, i’m pretty sure i could be swayed by valhalla brooklyn

love the goods from fog linen work
Yumiko Sekine started her first business in 1993 importing used books and house ware from Europe and America to Japan. In her search for more products, she could not find affordable every day linens that she had used during her childhood. She visited Lithuania, a country that grows flax, whose fibers are spun into linen, and has been producing and exporting linen productsto other European countries since the Middle Ages. This led her to contact several linen producers and started to have them produce her own product designs in Lithuania. Her first collection started with only seven items. Now after ten years, Fog Linen Work produces a large line of linen products for the home and linen clothing. Its products are leading and defining the natural life style trend in Japan today.
ooooh i spent way too much time yesterday perusing this collection of pics from a vintage opel calendar. WHY don’t car companies still make awesome stuff like this? now it’s just these flashy photos of big shiny black cars cruising along with light beams flashing past them and what what. BORING. i want to see my car in fields of lavender and reflected in some pristine lake in switzerland. WITH PEOPLE. who are dressed nicely.
i’ve been making a lot of soups lately – even though it’s unbearably hot here right now. they’re cheap to make, i can freeze the leftovers (which end up tasting even nicer a few weeks/months down the line when you reheat them), you can eat them hot or cold, and there is little to no margin for error. i mean, it’s soup – toss it in and let it simmer.
