icy goodness

just in case you felt the need to look at a bunch of beautiful ice pools, like i did.

… which indirectly made me think of this douglas adams quote

“… imagine a puddle waking up one morning and thinking, ‘This is an interesting world I find myself in – an interesting hole I find myself in – fits me rather neatly, doesn’t it? In fact it fits me staggeringly well, must have been made to have me in it!’ This is such a powerful idea that as the sun rises in the sky and the air heats up and as, gradually, the puddle gets smaller and smaller, it’s still frantically hanging on to the notion that everything’s going to be alright, because this world was meant to have him in it, was built to have him in it; so the moment he disappears catches him rather by surprise.”

these saturday things

maybe you’re stuck in front of your computer like i am, in which case – browse away…

i took part in the “design insiders weekly finds” on elledecor.com, where i shared my admiration for the makers project by jennifer causey

in complete agreement with hila re: the whole galliano loves hitler issue. so i felt kind of bad about liking dior’s a/w 2011 collection. is that stupid? probably. fashion really makes me roll my eyes sometimes. but i am very taken with the seventies inspired daywear – fur / round glasses / floppy hats… though quite similar to the vibe at gucci, no?

alison of teenangster did a guest post at pour porter based on the theme of life in a cave. one of the most beautifully curated and refreshing blog posts i have read in a while – it got several revisits from me.

all around cowboys by jay b sauceda seen via design work life actually made me teary.

nice work by bluewhitebrownman
