First the jacket, now the collection... (but I still love the jacket the most!) Mirror/dash is a side project for experimental duo Kim Gordon and Thurston Moore (of Sonic Youth), and it's also now a new clothing line designed by Kim. It's Kim's style mixed with a little Francoise Hardy, and I'm happy she's designing clothes again... believe it or not, I still have a top from her x-girl line...

Last night, after a very long day, one of those days (the kind that's topped off with a $53 parking ticket!), I came home to this happy little box, which was cleverly hidden away inside my refrigerator. I almost cried... (okay, well maybe I did a little!)... and then I opened it up...
...tacos! (from Tito's!) You made my day... (you know who you are!)... thank you for such a sweet surprise!
Hi there! I just popped in to say hi and to post this piece from the Silver Forest shop... all that talk yesterday about clowns made me think of this little circus tent... (now that would be a tiny circus!) There are lots of packages to get out today, and some pieces that need to be cast, but the plan is to fit in some baking time this afternoon for the oatmeal-toffee-dried cherry-chocolate chunk cookies (whew!) I'm taking to take to a small dinner party at a friend's house tonight. I've only made them once before, for this lovely lady... I'll let you know how they turn out... Happy Friday!!!
Last night, after lunch and a fun afternoon with the lovely Marisa, I met up with some friends at the Magic Castle to see the shows, which were supposed to be extra special and amazing this week... and they were! There were two female magicians, which is quite rare... one was even from Budapest, Hungary, birthplace of Houdini! But my favorite part was the marionettes... (if you're scrolling down, be careful... )
Ahh! Some clowns arescary, but his little fellow wasn't at all... he was just happily entertaining (even though the photo is a bit creepy!). The puppeteer was Scott Land, and if you've ever seen a puppet blow up a balloon, you know it's quite something to see! This little clown was so shy and sweet... he blew up a little yellow balloon and was having such fun with it... until it popped! It was such a great show, and so inspiring... each little tiny movement created the personality of the character, and the construction of the marionettes was really amazing. Stop by his website and take a peek... they each take about 4 months to make and they're all handmade by Mr. Land... (photo: thepuppetman.com)
A friend of mine collects these amazing little books, and I was lucky enough to snag this one, The Rabbit Box, for her from Goodwill in Seattle (can you believe it?!). The books are off-beat and just cool... they came out in the early 70s as a boxed set, The Rainbow Box, consisting of the box itself, four books - A Box of Sun, The Peace Box, The Rabbit Box and The Magic Box plus “The Peace Poster”. There's a book for each season - winter, spring, summer, and fall/autumn, and while I think The Magic Box is my favorite, this one (spring) comes in a pretty close second...
"Can I shower you with all the beauty of my creation, cherish you with
wonderful music, caress you with delicious food, adore you with
heavenly scents, embrace you with my mountains, forests, streams and
oceans?” God teases as the night caresses us and we retire into bliss." (from science of mind magazine)
