I am in love with these tiny houses... so colorful and fun!

Stormy skies.

Friday afternoon clouds began rolling in until the sky got so dark, it looked like the end of days. I was at my current part time job (underemployment is only slightly better than unemployment) and had to step outside to get some photos. There was something beautiful about the many layers of clouds that seemed to be flying quickly across the sky. We kept waiting for the inevitable downpour, but it never came. Summer storms on the East Coast are highly localized, so though we stayed dry my friend about 15 minutes away had not only heavy rain but jumbo hail. A lucky miss for us, don't you think?

Forever young.

This has been around for a while, but I had to post about it because I think it's so damn hilarious and adorable (not to mention that they used a great song--the perfect song for this, in my opinion). If you want, you can visit the special site Evian's got about the commerical. They've got an interesting video about how the commercial was produced... it's amazing the amount of time and money it took to pull it off.

Latest creation.

I was dabbling a bit last week, and here's the result. Sterling silver with freshwater pearl, serpentine, labradorite, turquoise, and chrysoprase beads. The holder opens so I can change out the charms as the mood strikes me.

Anthro windows redux

In January I snapped some photos of the window displays at Anthropologie in Rockefeller Center, which were really ingenious and creative (as are most of their displays). They all had a bird theme, but the ones that most appealed to me were those that centered on a pile of discarded plastic carrier bags. They made it appear as though some of the bags were picked up by a gust of wind and then formed themselves into birds soaring through the sky.

As I said, ingenious and creative. Also beautiful.
