Pretty Purple Finch

So far behind this week (typical for une bricoleuse). One can do much worse than go look at Tom Grim's gorgeous flickrstream.

Week's End - The Weight of the World

Hope it's as light as a balloon for at least part of the weekend. (scan from Pure Wonder series, Ellen von Unwerth, Vogue Italia, Giugno 2007)

Moreau Inspiration

The real J.M. Then inspiration for Steven Meisel's Cinema Stills shoot in Vogue Italia (October 2003). We love J.M. for many reasons but making under-eye shadows acceptably sexy (yes!) was a major achievement. That & not being classically beautiful but being considered gorgeous. As she was & remains. ciao!

I'm all ears...

From Marianne Perdomo, a terrific photographer, animal rescuer, & all-round funny lady. She lives on Gran Canaria & her English is excellent.We hang our head in shame at our inability to claim something similar in Spanish. This is funny Blanquita (with Eli in the background). Blanquita has something to say, it's quite obvious!

Week's End - White Primrose

We love our new white primrose in a blue cachepot...sitting next to clipped red poinsettia branches, red berries, & magnolia leaves in glass bottles. Our kitchen windowsill is very... Inauguralish. Sort of. Bon week-end. White Primrose by Tom Grim/all rights reserved

Moleskine® Journal 2009

This is from a lovely flickr series called Without Soul by Alice Lucchin. First seen on automatism. Can't be une bricoleuse, we think, without a good blank Moleskine (or whatever your favorite is...we grew up with them, hence the fondness...but the sticker shock, wow).

Happy New Year!

This is going to be in fits & starts without DSL (still). But the goal was to begin regularly on 1 January 2009, so...Paul Moody's moody Vermont landscape series, here. This blog will eventually move to another address so that GG's photo & info don't show up. Have to study the ins & outs of this & have neither the patience nor the time today. Also as note to self: publish week days only. Cheers & a much better new year to all. It just has to be better: we inaugurate President-elect Obama in twenty days.
