Lykke Li - Possibility

lovely as always

bon iver and peter gabriel

i have no words

self proposal

pretty much the only jewelry I wear is four rings that have all come to me as a result of something significant in my life.

I have something that I want to celebrate right now and am on the mad search for the new ring to add to the collection. I'd always imagined a ring like the above as my engagement ring, but I'm considering just proposing to myself - if it's the perfect ring why not just wear it now!!!

Plus, shouldn't Miss M Boner get to wear a ring by Erica Weiner?

available at Bona Drag....

I mean, it's kind of perfect from any way you look at it.

easy rider

I have a new fascination for motorbikes and stumbling upon these images from Scott G Toepfer has only fueled the fire.

flower child


if you make dirt 'n' worms and dress it up with flowers, you're going to end up with some pretty people

and just how pretty is Chris


Sunday funny Sunday





I had a pretty jammed weekend this time around, though I don't know why I think that's some kind of change of pace. It was total sweet and sour material.

Saturday morning, early morning walk, found a treasured book second hand, bought a new bike, got bitten and mangled by a dog, got a sweet haircut, afternoon vintage shopping, dinner at Zahav with the pleasure of meeting the owner again, night with my girls and dancing.

Sunday in the park, lots of reading and pondering, then a long bike ride around the city. Babysitting with the snuggliest baby in the land, quick seltzer at a goodbye party and then a big effing sleep.

should have taken more pictures really...

on to the next one

I may have just got my haircut, first in 18 months, but now I made that decision I'm picking out the next style.

I saw this photo of Jeanne Greenberg Rohatyn in the Times yesterday and now I want that look...

maybe the next move after redhead

mind you, I'm going to want to bleach it if it's short

nobody at the wheel

too much loveliness

Sparks - Moustache

this is going to be my karaoke classic going forward:

A lady gets a lotta things
She gets a 20 carat ring
She gets the alimony too
She gets to look good in the nude
But there's one place where they've been whipped
Between the nose and upper lip

Florence is ruling my life right now...

I'm pretty much getting Florence hair at the weekend, and this video is in my dreams nightly.

and I don't mind in the slightest


I am in disbelief that I haven't posted anything on Oolong the bunny before...


I'm trying to decide if there's any way for me to resist buying an Oolong poster...

It's out there at KK Outlet taunting me. I mean, I don't want to make the Kitty jealous, but Oolong's got some serious talent. Even if it's just in happy making.

I've been sweating the art in my bedroom and desperately trying to find a black and white print for the big wall and then I realised yesterday I have this one from It's Nice That and Parra on it's way to me as part of their Issue 3 package...

nice indeed

SXSW 2010 - day three

lucy in disguise

so posh

siamese scooby

elsewhere i suppose

Sondre Lerche

hair control

Frightened Rabbit

Frightened Rabbit

Freelance Whales

Local Natives

Bands seen: Sondre Lerche, Holly Miranda, French Revolution, Frightened Rabbit, Freelance Whales, Local Natives, Suckers, An Horse, The Antlers

(most of these photos are digital and I haven't been brave enough to edit and upload them all yet)

amazing food consumed: killer omelettes and carrot cake french toast and even more amazing coffee at South Congress Cafe, pizza (shamefully)


key moments:
- creating havoc at South Congress Cafe and ending up with two waiters serving our one table
- discovering there is such a thing as a worm costume at Lucy in Disguise
- almost wetting ourselves laughing at a stand up comedian that no one else was paying attention to
- seeing Local Natives live for only the first time that weekend, and they were seriously amazing
- being able to strategise some time on South Congress in between all the havoc
- hearing two girls recalling how AWESOME Man Man are and how having their photo taken with Honus Honus was just like the best picture ever taken of all time
- being smart enough to realise we were beat, go home, drink bedtime tea and watch Entertainment Tonight to discover we have no idea of what is going on in tabloid culture right now


I love my overalls

apparently so does Self Service
