I love wood....

(Not that kind of wood! get your mind out of the gutter)

I love the look of wood and wood grain. So when I saw these surfboards I was immediately drawn to them.

Not only are they beautiful they are earth sustainable. They are " built with local white cedar on a lightweight, rugged, internal frame, Grain’s boards are fully structural before they’re even glassed - which means that a heavily-used Grain Surfboard will never show pressure dings, doesn’t stress-crack, and surfs and looks as good years from now as it did when it first hit the water. They use no veneers or foam in our boards - inside, they’re just the same clean air we breathe. Outside, we use zero-VOC epoxy, glass or bamboo cloth, and a high-gloss UV coating to protect the board for years to come. Designed for life, your board should never see a landfill in your lifetime and - per session - this may be the least expensive board you’ll ever own."

Its almost time to get back in the water again... and this time, maybe a Grain surfboard will go along for the ride.

To fall asleep on a cloud...

Everyone has posted about Donna Wilson's cloud pillows, but I can't resist. I want a bounty full of these pillows and throws so that I can fall into the mound of clouds. Throw a little "blah blah blah" in it and its perfect.

The secret society

Dear Mr. Karl Lagerfeld,
You're a genius. This year's Chanel Resort Line is absolutely stunning. The Gorey look and feel, like a secret society of Goth-y, highly fashionable women. Please let me know where I can sign up to be a part of that society, I'm up for any hazing necessary.

Skulls and Crossbones,

Happy Spring!

I just finished this embroidery project so I thought I'd share it with you guys. I've gotten into doing some type embroideries which are really fun. I'm planning on having a section on my website(s). Hope you're enjoying the day!

There's something about a thigh highs, garter belts, knickers, a sexy bralette... I've long been a fan of lingerie, this line by Hopeless is retro, yet modern and super sexy.

"Artistic Adventurer"

That's what it says about Anni Albers on the Albers Foundation website. What a great way to be remembered.

I had studied Josef Albers in school, but little did I know about his wife. Anni Albers was a weaver, writer, textile designer, and printmaker. These wall hangings are some of her work.
