Do you need a blog subject or theme today, or a new friends?
Why not surf over to Tine’s Studio Friday project and check out the new topic of the week and participate along with me and many other bloggers? This Friday the topic makes me think about weddings, because we are asked to post Something Old, Something New, Something Borrowed, Something Blue… One thing that is all of those things, or maybe four different things, like this mosaic image I made of four things in my life right now:
Something Old is not that old, but being a pair of slippers they have survived a long time. I got them in NY six years ago, and they look old now, but are comfy still.
Something New is the latest Harry Potter book with Swedish cover by the artist Tapia. I haven’t read it yet, but soon I will. Right now I’m just enjoying how beautiful and thick it is. Mmmm….
Something Blue is a yar of Nivea creme for my lips. I’ve had a horrible cold all week, and need to get some fluid balance to my skin right now.
Something Borrowed was harder to find in the studio, and actually I’ve already posted the books I borrowed most recently from the library. But since I loved Kaffe’s book (Welcome Home) that is all about his beautiful home, I thought I give a shout about it here (also because I got a request to show a glimpse of it from a reader, Claudio of A Chest of Drawers).
So let’s take a look…
I want one, and I’m willing to make it on my own too.
Kaffe Fassett’s love for collecting is enormous (porcelain, books, stuff everywhere), so I don’t think he does his own dusting… But these pictures would be beautiful in the Art studio pool which I love to browse and am now helping Tiff taking care of.
Personally I have all of the Kaffe fabrics on my wish list. Specially these:
I love the names of his fabric line too. How about Kimono crimson and lots and lots of Forget-me-not Rose Circus, and August rose – in pink and pastel, please. Freckles rust, Planet Moss and Planet Rose, Wild rose pastel – and also I want all of the Paper Weight fabrics.
And if you are curious about Laleh you can listen to samples of her songs here. I have her record, and can’t wait for the next one.
