i like these pieces by ole wanscher

right now i'm sort of into the look of marble as an accent.
this inexpensive cheese tray has the look of carrara without the price and while it's beautiful as a cheese tray, add some brackets and a few of these might make some really beautiful shelves for a small kitchen or bathroom.

makie makes gloves for grown-ups too
(available at auto)
dullsville has closed
...but this is good news
to all my new friends at blueprint: i'm so very sad to see the magazine go, it was so inspiring and beautiful. but i am glad to know that the blog will still continue.

i finally get around to properly checking my blog e-mail and this really interesting piece from geoff mcfetridge shows up. it's beautiful (and yes, expensive). i just really love the idea of laser etching on a wood block. i would love to see wood blocks/spheres with not just illustrations, but also patterns burned into them too.

oh what a great new shop i discovered through mav today...
so many nice things
i love this felt baby swing by mohr polster
(oh and the carrier too)

last night, i went to carnegie hall to listen to philip glass and his ensemble play a concert version of his ground-breaking collaboration with robert wilson, the opera einstein on the beach. it really was one of the most amazing concert experiences i've ever had. while i listen to the cd set occasionally and have always been a fan of the work, the music has such a different dimension live. you can hear so much more of the variation and texture. it was such an inspiring evening.

it requires you to truly listen...
