i am positively salivating over these houses by late architect arthur erickson, all designed in the late fifties / early sixties.

i looooooooove cowboys! another new years resolution is to marry a cowboy. with a beard.

these vintage ads really amused me. you can almost imagine the dudes saying, “come on boys, this chocolate isn’t going to carry itself!” (in french)
i’m on holiday for a wee while. just over 3 weeks to be exact, boom! i won’t be on the computer much (or at all, hopefully) – but i have set up some posts to go off like clockwork around here. so, to keep going with the summer / holiday spirit…. here are some lovely old beach pics for you:
La Tonkinoise à Paris
My little world is a happy recycling, a small jumble of flea market where you find the jewels fell into disuse. Each jewel that I put in point is a unique piece with a carefully considered composition. Remixing pins, buckles, buttons, watches, often of no concern to people… Each model is assembled by hand in my workshop from the 11th arrondissement in Paris
I LOVE THESE PHOTOS. yes, caps lock. they make me want to jump into a time machine and be right there on those beaches in the sixties without a care in the world. they were taken by leroy grannis
i decided to start scanning in all our old family photographs, mostly for safety’s sake – but also to share some of the pretty radical images my parents have in their archives. you can see the complete (and growing) set here.
