Ulrika Sandstrom.

Ulrika Sandstrom's s/s 2009 collection takes its inspiration from the film The Science of Sleep . I find myself swooning over the above slacks which I shall never have in my possession because I make less than $30,000 a year which comes out to a depressing TOO EXPENSIVE & HIGH CLASS FOR ME.
Perhaps I'll be able to find a cheaper cousin, yes?

Coincidentally, pants of this nature always make me smile because they hearken back to a certain Katharine Hepburn woman for me:

I'm really intrigued by Antler Magazine . Its an online publication with a little bit of everything; art, music, fashion, and culture. The first issue is written in interview format but, the creator says that each issue will take shape differently. So far, its free (!!!) so, you have no reason to ignore the above link and enjoy! I did.

A Trip of Sorts..

To Barcelona circa 1908:

Isn't it amazing? Ghosts of a time long forgotten.. One day, we will be remembered with this sense of awe and wonder.

Favorite Scenes from Film; 3.

I'm back. I'm upset and hurt right now. I don't want to get into it because nobody wants to hear depressing things from a stranger when we all have our own problems, right?

So, to cheer myself and perhaps, a few of you; I present the third of my favorite movie moments, brought back with a vengeance thanks to a little reminder over on FABULON .

A cute little number with some very swell dancing performed by three amazing entertainers; Donald O'Connor, Debbie Reynolds, and Gene Kelly; who coincidentally, had family members in my small town, I give you:

Good Mornin' from Singin' in the Rain (1952):

I'm smiling now and, I hope you are as well.

Oh, how I adore this sparrow of France..

People Are Kids.

I found this short nine minute documentary; People are Children, lovely and insightful. If only adul;ts could see one another in such a simple light:

Do you know what racism is?
Have you ever heard that word before, racisim?
No.. I've heard enthusiasm but not racism.

Jen x 11.

Artist Jen Khoshbin, whose book sculputures I highlighted in a previous post, here , is the curator of a new artistic project titled Jen 11 . Basically, eleven women named Jennifer have grouped together with the purpose of creating art of their choosing to add to this "Jeneration" of artistic endeavors.

I adore the premise so, I headed over there and previewed some of the talent and I was floored by some very lovely, ethereal pieces, especially those of:

Jenifer Altman

Jen Gotch

and, last but not least by any means;

Jen Renninger

If you want to see a few other samples of all eleven of these lovely ladies talents, head to the above link.

Three galleries will be showing this exhibition:
Artstream Gallery
Rochester, NH
April, 2009

Calgary, Canada
June & July, 2009

Lakewood, CO
August & September, 2009

If you're a lucky bluebell and reside in any of those three areas, I highly reccomend you scoot over there and set your eyes on some artistic beauty.
It'll cheer you up!

1.) Even when we have gone without talking for months at a time, my Heatherface and I can just pick up right where we left off.
2.) I'm very lucky to be able to put even a small amount of money back for the trips I want to take this year.
3.) I now have a wonderful friend who resides in California so, that gives me the perfect excuse to go there like I've wanted to for years.
4.) I'm so happy that I paid my library dues so now I have more incentive to finish one book so I can go on to the next in line.
5.) Ice Breakers new berry flavored Ice Cubes gum.

Mid-Century Covet.

Look at this little beauty via From the Desk of Mrs. Gorman ! Ohhh, my heart yearns..
I honestly think that, if I were in possession of such a lovely writing tool, I would be inspired to do much, MUCH more than I do now..

Speaking of writing, perhaps I'll start posting some here in the future.
Its a thought..
