Cute and Cuter

I was inspired by bonkerosity of the cuteness of Brendan Donnelly's  puppy Remy and the near explosion of my ovaries at the sight of Tim Riggin's playing with Baby Gracie on Friday Night Lights to create a new blog.  It is called Cute and Cuter and it is comprised entirely of photos of cute boys with even cuter animals, babies, etc.  No cute objects have been featured yet but it is only a matter of time.  CHECK IT OUT. I hope it will fill the void left by Playgirl, Sweet Action and Sassy's "Cute Band Alert".

James White: Relationships III

I'm definitely having a plastic cup moment. Of course, first there was William Eggleston's and James Ryang's seltzer homage. I saw these James White paintings at the Armory. (I know I am just getting around to posting about the Armory) Relationships III, 2009 .



Doug Black photobombing is a nice touch.

Angela Spencer's Irresistible Stuff



I've been meaning to post about Angela Spencer since I saw her crochet collars on my friend Rachel Hill's site The New Wave. It's frustrating when you see someone make craft you've been meaning to get started on but never gotten around to, but in this case I know I could never have pulled it off  as well as Angela. I had actually discussed making crochet collars as well as this very project, crochet necklaces to hold our healing crystals with Erin Fant, but like many other ambitious projects we never got around to making a prototype. I think I am going to break down and buy Angela's Rose Quartz is very Argentinean and:
Rose quartz is a stone of unconditional love. It opens the heart chakra to all forms of love: self-love, family love, platonic love, and romantic love. Rose quartz has excellent protection energies during pregnancy and childbirth. The elevated energy of quartz gives rose quartz a property of enhancing love in virtually any situation. It also brings gentleness, forgiveness, and tolerance. 
The Raw Rose Quartz necklace in Black and the Raw Rose Quartz in vintage ivory cotton are both $36.

Love like Lions





I don't speak Russian.  but apparently in the "70's the Berberov family who raised a lion (named The King) in their flat... Then they took also a puma...
One day the lion attacked and killed their youngest son and then was shot by policeman (1980)... It's a long story anyway."

Nook Inspiration

So the signature feature of the bedroom that I moved into last November when I began my single leti 3.0 phase is the little nook where I keep my bed. It's my favorite hideaway these days but it is still a work in progress.  I wanted it to be a sort of cozy, hippie, harem-inspired,  Moroccan influenced, Indian block-printed, pillow-laden, teepee, love fort type thing. Here are some examples of my inspiration, I will post photos of the nook soon. 

UPDATE: Thanks MLP
