My Artisan Friend

Shannon LeVart makes gorgeous pieces, takes commissions and also makes components and tutorials for your own homemade jewelry. A couple of days ago I got two packages form her, additions to make my wardrobe pop. Although her presentation is wonderfully good, her work looks even better in real life. This is her ETSY shop:

Frank Horvat : So there are situations when you say to yourself : "I can't photograph this".

Mario Giacomelli : : It's not that I say it to myself. I just suddenly realise that I'm not taking photos. It happens when I see things I can't accept as real: how is it possible that a human being, after a lifetime of work and struggle, should be condemned to exist in this manner?

Shopping Hiatus 2013 - 2

Lists it is. The only way it seems is making a list of everything bought, except for food, ballet&yoga class and supplies for the guinea pigs. So I spend money on exercise, maybe some books, food, the pigs and pretty much nothing else. May possibly double as meditation.

Brahms and Ginette Neveu

M in London told me about Ginette Neveu a few years ago, thankfully. I find her playing magical.

Shopping Hiatus Yet Again

The closets are cleaned out now. Years of knitting appeared, towels, wash cloths, new socks in abundance. We are a family of textile devotees. I need nothing more! I am actually quite shocked with what I found. So no more shopping, no more clutter hopefully. I have everything I need and more; bags, bedlinen, sweaters in abundance. I have to stop knitting! Well, maybe not woolen socks, but really .... It is time to resume the shopping hiatus - and stay that way.
