direct sunlight

Today's weather called for shorts. And for that, I am thankful.

resting place

I am loving Wynde Dyer's bench!
Anyone have tips on how I could DIY this -- specifically attaching wood to acrylic or plastic?

Spring is (hopefully) right around the corner -- which means exposed wrists -- which means I don't have to worry about my bracelets getting caught in my damn sweater! This Dragneva cuff would cradle my wrist bone into sweet dreams.

I got a very nice surprise in the mail the other day -- this ring that my little brother made for me! I knew he could draw, but I didn't know he could do this!

little dragon

Celebrated one year in New York by seeing Little Dragon perform at the Bowery.
I'm girl crushing on Yukimi Nagano hard.

P.S. She even has her own blog and sometimes she posts about her favorite jewelry designers. Swoooon.

new pins

Pippin never lets me down!

heir to all

What I spill in a dream
runs under my door,
ahead of my arrival
and the year's wide round,

to meet me in the color of hills
at dawn, or else collected
in a flower's name
I trace with my finger
in a book. Proving

only this: Listening is the ground
below my sleep,
where decision is born, and

whoever's heard the title
autumn knows him by
is heir to all those
unfurnished rooms inside the roses.
From Book of My Nights, by Li-Young Lee

The lovely Elizabeth has just added these perfect little sweaters to her knitwear line Primoeza. I love everything about them!

Available for pre-order here.

According to French philosopher René Descartes (1596-1650), the universe operated as a continuously running machine which God had set in motion. Since he rejected Newton's theory of gravity and idea of a vacuum in space, Descartes argued that instead the universe was composed of a 'subtle matter' he named 'plenum,' which swirled in vortices like whirlpools and actually moved the planets by contact. Here, these vortices carry the planets around the Sun.
