Rabbit Hole

i’ve been trying to make the blog a bit more fun to explore since there are almost 2000 posts stretching back 3 years littered all over the place. so now if you click on a post, you will see ten related posts with handy thumbnail previews pop up in the sidebar to your left. i hope that this helps you discover posts you’ve never seen before, and that it will be especially handy to those of you who are new visitors to the blog (hello!)

Picasso

inspired by this post by lauren about francoise gilot i decided to do some vintage picasso hunting – and of course the life archives delivered. picasso lived in the town of vallauris on the french riviera for 7 years where he created ceramics at the madoura workshop (amongst other things of course – the man was nothing if not prolific). francoise is pictured in this series of photographs taken in 1949 by gjon mili, though she eventually left picasso after a myriad of infidelities.

These Things No.29

seems that it has been a week of things i like right now, these things, nice things, flickr things and the like. truth is i’m surprised i got any posting done at all as i’m in the process of moving out of my flat – this weekend being the last in my home of a year. i’m excited for the next step but also sad to leave behind my pals who have been so great to live with. onward and upward! i hope you have a great weekend and to all my american readers – happy thanksgiving.

Christina: Things I Like Right Now

Rounding up my inaugural sponsors things i like right now showcase is Christina Remenyi, the amazing talent behind exquisite lingerie label Fortnight Lingerie. i love seeing how much i have in common with these great gals – i am also obsessed with those acne pistol boots, won’t say no to vanilla soft serve (ever) and am in the habit of drinking my morning coffee out of vintage cups and mugs.
