Summer '99

my friend, Melissa, is going away to Berlin for a little while (lucky Melissa!). We went to her house tonight for a small going away gathering. Look how clever we got with the sparklers! It took quite some orchestrating, and even though it was supposed to say Summer '09 not '99...I still think it was a pretty cool shot!
Next weekend we'll all be saying goodbye to summer '09! Hope it was a good one!

Watch Out

watch parts
I am so in love with Etten Eller jewelry that when I stumbled across these vintage watch parts on Etsy, I had to have them for myself. Though I wish I could afford all of the Etten Eller pieces, I think I'll have to change it up a little and make a bunch of cheapie trinkets for my friend.

Lazy Days

couldn't stick around NYC today cause it was way too hot & humid. nothing is worse than being in the subway on a day like today.  all I could think about was being in my air conditioned room in Philly.

summer when we were kids

then I remembered summer days when I was a kid... 
climbing trees, playing in the woods, eating popsicles, spitting out watermelon seeds to see who's went the furthest, picking wild berries and honeysuckle, swimming in my neighbor's pool 'till our lips turned purple.  
we dreaded being called inside for dinner.
afterwords we would catch fireflies in jars and play capture the flag. on special nights like this one, we got to roast marshmallows over the grill.
if I could only go back...

Smelly Belle

Lately I've been thinking about making my old perfume bottles into something interesting. It turns out Marcel Duchamp beat me me to it. "Belle Haleine -Eau de Voilette" features a photo by Man Ray of Duchamp in drag. Recently, it was expected to bring about 1.5 million at auction, but went for a fetching 11.5 million!

Can you believe its already August? Seems like many of my favorite bloggers have been taking a vacation, including myself. Well, I have some eye candy for you... random objects from inside my apartment.
getting sick of a barren wall in the bedroom; finally found a use for these metallic trims

portrait of moi by Kris Chau. muslin boxes.

silver tray found at recent trip to thrift store ($2). faux animal skull found at Home Goods.

unfinished soft sculpture swan (or white goos as scott says) to hang from my 20ft ceiling

tasted as pretty as they looked ;0
