An obsession: Round Tables

I can't get it out of my mind...I am desperate for a dining room with a round table. I have been tantalized with pictures all over the internet. It's really quite unfair.

We need these...

On the list of the many things I've learned from you, friendly neighbor, is the notion that all the things I decide to own should have special value to me. If I buy something, it should be deliberate, soulful, and I should absolutely love it. Well, one way that has played out (again by your example) is in the collection of kitchenware...namely mugs. It's one of my greatest pleasures to be at your house and choose my own teacup from the various pottery you and others have made for yourself.

Therefore, buying myself special mugs has been my desire for quite sometime. In my etsy searchings, I stumbled upon these by CircaCeramics. Don't you think we need them?

Fall Inspiration

I hate that the fashion world sends us reeling into Fall when we are clinging like hell to our Indian summer. Despite this disdain, I couldn't resist leafing through my Bazaar Fall Fashion issue. What a treat it made me swoon all over Fall once again.

Books AND Fall? Sigh.

I am especially loving the throwback to the 40s. I've started my Fall wish list as a result.
  1. Camel, red, or plumb leather gloves
  2. A cloche hat
  3. New plumb or orange lipstick
  4. These red shoes from Chie Mihara
  5. MaxMara Camel Coat at only $3,000

What's on your fall wish list?

How I love this classic, so versatile, so layer-able.
So SOLD. :(

Fashion Friday: The Marylin Monroe Dress

Though I hardly have the bosomly-endowments to fill this dress
to its proper hour-glass proportions, I have still decided that I must have it.

And by MUST, I mean in an imaginary world where I can afford anything that grabs my fancy. Including bosoms.

Maisy Crow's "Love Me"

I was telling you about this last night as we drove, but I wanted to help you see what I was trying to describe. Hell, I want everyone to see these amazing shots...

Just one second in time, snap.
And you have a rich, complex story.

And there you have why I love photography.

Maisy Crow is a photojournalist who recently claimed the Ian Perry award for her series in progress, "Love Me." It is a story of a 15-year old Ohio girl raised in poverty...just as her mother and her mother's mother were.

Can you imagine being the photographer here? How to capture these organic moments? How to be a fly on the wall when there is obviously a good amount of shame and embarrassment on their part attached to your being there. It's not a task for the weak-of-heart.

But then again, neither is living.
Especially for this girl.

See the entire series here, including captions.
