Movie #3



Primer is perhaps one of the best time-travel movies ever. Aside from Back to the Future, of course. Seriously, it will blow your mind.

Memory #1

Around this time last year, at a jewelry shop in the South End, a brilliant window display...

select jewelry sitting on toilet paper rolls, with a backdrop of more toilet paper into which decorative holes were burned...

dangling from rods...

a charming and inexpensive idea!

Goal #1

Make a quilted version of ...


Pia Wallen's Crux Blanket.

It's simple. It's beautiful. It's expensive.
I will accomplish this goal with the aid of this and this.

New is the new

A few new things...

I just ordered these rings from day-lab, one gold finish and one silver finish. I've mentioned day-lab before, and although I don't necessarily fawn over everything that Amy carries, I can't help but return for more subtle, vintage-inspired jewelry. Come to think of it, I wore this ring from day-lab today.

Thanks to this great big world we call the internet, I have a new blog in my daily mix: 10engines.

And thanks to James at 10engines for introducing me to rebeldata. There are some amazing images here, a few of which include hand-painted signs, like this gem:


Aside from my epic affordable bag quest (I might cave in to that brown Urban backpack yet), I've also embarked on an epic tea quest. Original Good Earth is perhaps my favorite tea of all time: sweet AND spicy. Alas, Shaws has some aversion to stocking this deliciousness, so I've had to resort to ordering it online. I love this great big world!

Wanted: new alarm clock

I've had my alarm clock since high school. Sadly, that's a long time. Although I value its simplicity and efficiency, I'm considering moving on...

Furni has a sleek alarm clock that I've coveted for a couple years now. 
Here's the Alba:


L.L. Bean has a few classic options. I like the Moonbeam, but I don't know about waking up to a "gentle illuminating light." I need that bell! But it's so darn cute:


The 1949 Big Ben seems like it will do the trick. No gentle illuminating lights here, just a "pleasant beep" that will no doubt scare me awake in the morning. And that's just what I need:


Cozy


Mandy made this stylish cat bed for Malachi. The bed sits on top of a radiator and is now his favorite spot in the apartment where he spends hours on end. 

It's not just any cat bed, it's a crack bed.

The Holy Trinity: The Soup/Mad Men/Reading Rainbow

Oh my!  The Soup sometimes blows my mind.

That's Joel with a few fine fellows from Mad Men...and LeVar Burton. Mad Men! Reading Rainbow! It doesn't make sense but it is definitely AMAZING. 

Don't worry -- I won't go into detail about the beards that Vincent Kartheiser and Aaron Staton are sporting. Check it out here.
