Greg’s flu has managed to mutate itself while holidaying in his person. Consequently, it has now found the great magnanimity to settle into me in an attempt at repeat custom. Thanks very much, influenza. Enjoy your stay, please, DON’T come again…
At any rate its left me lying flat in bed, with the novel feeling at least that today I am unable to stand and my muscles are screaming for completely out of the ordinary reasons. Its almost pleasant, conceptually speaking. Unfortunately, the reality is that even my shins hurt. WHAT KIND OF FLU EFFECTS ONE’S SHINS?! Preposterous!
So I’m attempting to battle on as always, get some work done and in the meantime I get to read up on surprisingly enlightening articles on typographic maturation: “Phaeton” – A classic Bearskinrug Article. When DOES one use those extra characters save for flights of fancy when designing visual elements?
This afternoon I jump online and Jenji, bless her hearts, (yes. HEARTS! xD) didn’t even say hello, just linked me this photospam of Four Story Townhouse at DigsDigs with the word: Pretty.
I’m going to have to say OMG YES! O_O; <33333 You could take photos of stuff ANYWHERE and the light would be so nice for it. *has clearly warped priorities* I also ADORE all the wood accents and the little loft and the bathroom door of ye olde winne. I love looking at interiors that have been decorated with a strong mix of vintage/antique and fresh-from-the-flat-pack.
Kitchenaid Artisan Mixers: Blueberry or Apple, that is the question
OKAY SO THIS LIST HAS LESS SUPER GORGEOUS THINGS ON IT THAT I WAS EXPECTING! It also has less quirky stuff on it than I was expecting. Apparently most of what I want is achingly practical. WHAT’S THAT ABOUT!? xD But still, the IDEA of a lot of these things has me salivating – especially as whenever I try and make anything on the Damn Daring Bakers Challenges, they always require me to use something that I don’t own so I dodgy up other things in their stead. xD I’d like to be less dodgy – or as a friend put it, ~~INNOVATIVE~~ – especially when it comes to using a stand mixer with all the delicious attachments.
The faithful and long serving electric hand beaters we have are on their last legs… Recently using it its motor started to kinda.. Burn… ^_^;;
Apple Butter on Marianne Dashwood from Shop Yarn Love
I was bullied by my mans last night into posting a birthday wishlist. As I have no real idea on what I actually WANT O_O;; I decided to instead use it as an excuse to go check out some massive pretties that I’ve been avoiding doing because WHO HAS MONEY FOR THAT?!? xD So this way its not REALLY torture, its research. *nods*
What follows is Part One of my ~research~ xD YARN LOVE!! A whole mess of yarns from stores that I’ve wanted to try out for AGES because the photos make me want to touch them so completely..!
I have NEVER before heard of Kubrick Blythes, which is, as far as I’m concerned, CRAZY FACED as they’ve been around for the best part of a decade by all accounts. I’ve hung out on Blythe forums, scoured all sorts of photo resources for Blythes over the years, and I own ACTUAL Blythes. Well, not ones from the 70s, but you know what I mean.
HOW HAVE I NOT HEARD OF THEM!? And now that I have. DO. WANT! O_O;; I especially love the photoshoot of that second mosaic-ed blythe, the Zombie Kubrick Blythe, savaging poor Totoro. xD
Anthropologie has always been an evil and horrendous purveyour of too much pretty. Those bastards. And they’re at it again, this time making me pine for rugs that I cannot have – and now must actually learn how to properly make my own for my future pie-in-the-sky house. Perhaps thats what I’ll put on my rugs. Pie. In the sky.
Everyone likes pai. Raight?
But it did make me hunt out the delectable arts of Maxine Sutton and have me grabby handsing and pretty much everything – even things I have ZERO use for like the lavender spoons (or soons as the product id would have it xD). WHAT AM I GOING TO DO WITH THAT, I CAN’T EVEN SMELL LAVENDER. xD
Jenji comes through with the linkie goodness goods once again! Though this clip feels a little long, I COVET this as it would make baking so much easier! xD And could you imagine all the awesome decorating control you would have?! MAN! Screw hover cars and jetpacks, I wish the future had included this.
AUGH! There simply is too many things one wants to do in one’s lifetime. And CLEARLY crochet-ing granny squares is one of them. Dottie Angel’s post, ‘Getting it on with Mr Hook’ has me eyeing my suitcases filled with vintage yarn and my grandmother’s battered hook and needle case with DECIDED scheming in my eyes.
I had been wondering if I could attempt crochet-ing again this year (previously I’ve not been so keen on it because of my back, but I’m feeling adventurous) & Bec‘s Mum had asked if I could do a little crochet for her as a finishing-off of a knitting project she’d done and now this little gem comes along to make me squee and reawaken my crochet-design imagination with the endless possibilities.
When we opened our SoHo store in 2008, we were introduced to the resourceful culture of “curb-mining”: the act of finding furniture and art on the street. Now that a year has passed, we decided to conduct a curb-mining experiment of our own to celebrate our one-year anniversary in New York.
On November 4-5, 25 Real Good Chairs were dropped around NYC, free for the take. Many were GPS-enabled. Watch the film to see what happened.

Ahahaha! I’m off re-posting things my friends have posted again, but this is just TOO glorious to not! Love the editing, the concept, the CHAIR! And man every single one of the INCOs seem to be seriously awesome people.
I’d so love to see just how ‘sit-able’ that chair is…
