Absolutely Gorgeous Interiors

Yes to the wallpaper and the lines in that hallway table.

Lately, I have been taking the Metra in with the husband. It's been great! Much smoother, quieter and faster than the CTA (although I will always have a spot in my heart for them).

I've been surfing Pinterest lately and found all these cool map images. They are quite beautiful as abstractions. My fave, which is NOT a map, are the MTA subway seats. :)

Pink + Gold Part III

Thanks to my Jane for this link. A cookbook by Ikea, Homemade Is Best, concentrating on the ingredients more than the finished product. Lovely photography.

Pink + Gold Part I

I've decided to dedicate the posts of this week (maybe longer) to pink and gold, in all its lovely variations. Part I is from the wonderful work of stylist, Shana Faust.

In the vein of all things patterned this week (minus the hot pink wool), some gorgeous overload.

It's a Priscilla Ahn / Beatles kind of day.

("If I had a camera," I said, "I'd take a picture of you every day. That way I'd remember how you looked every single day of your life." "I look exactly the same." "No you don't. You're changing all the time. Every day a tiny bit. If I could, I'd keep a record of it all." "If you're so smart, how did I change today?" "You got a fraction of a millimeter taller, for one thing. Your hair grew a fraction of a millimeter longer. And your breasts grew a fraction of a --" "They did not!" "Yes, they did." "Did NOT." "Did too." "What else, you big pig?" "You got a little happier and also a little sadder." "Meaning they cancel each other out, leaving me exactly the same." "Not at all. The fact that you got a little happier today doesn't change the fact that you also became a little sadder. Every day you become a little more of both, which means that right now, at this exact moment, you're the happiest and the saddest you've ever been in your whole life." "How do you know?" "Think about it. Have you ever been happier than right now, lying here in the grass?" "I guess not. No." "And have you ever been sadder?" "No." "It isn't like that for everyone, you know. Some people, like your sister, just get happier and happier everyday. And some people, like Beyla Asch, just get sadder and sadder. And some people, like you, get both." "What about you? Are you the happiest and saddest right now that you've ever been?" "Of course I am." "Why?" "Because nothing makes me happier and nothing makes me sadder than you.")

Dana Tanamachi

I am endlessly surprised by the myriad ways one can make a living. For example, Dana Tanamachi does custom hand-lettering on chalk boards. How sweet of a job is that?
