assignment #63

from miranda july and harrel fletchers learning to love you more project: make an encouraging banner. (if you don't know about the learning to love you more project, it is indeed fascinating and wonderful and worth a look)

as you flip through the images of completed assignments, you begin to feel a weight lifted from your shoulders. a little encouragement from complete strangers, some halfway around the world, never hurt.

if you want to follow up the encouragement with a good chuckle,

beautiful full skirts and castles

after a gorgeous victoria's secret holiday commercial i just saw, inspired by big beautiful skirts and regal settings, i wanted to look back at one of my favorite scenes from marie antoinette (above).

succumbed (happily)

after having her plates, bowls and platters, i finally bought a set of nancy's hot cocoa mugs. they are gorgeous, and nestle in your hand so perfectly. it was between hers and molo mugs. which are mod, but relatively impersonal. d will kill me when i say these are THE mugs since we've been through about five rounds but...i think these are THE mugs ;)

baaaaa et al

poppytalk handmade- holiday market

poppytalk handmade holiday market is a super fantastic place to go shopping.

the brilliant minds behind poppytalk blog thought up to gather some of their favorite designers/artists/makers to sell their wares in one place (brilliant). jan and earl select makers of some really smart, heartfelt and beautiful stuff. we just discovered we'll have a "table" later this month- and are honored to be selected by such discriminating eyes! thank you jan and earl!
