Launched May 1st, 2009 with a tentative start... this blog evolved into a space to bring things I'm curious about or fascinated with whilst adapting to life in a new city, a new direction with my work and in the online realm. Early on postings were frequent and wide-ranging in focus. Attention slowly spread to new online engagements as ideas developed and formats trialled to extend those ideas. However, this blog has always remained at the centre of all that followed ...the conversations, journeys and glimpses into creative worlds generated here have long enriched my days beyond all imagining and I return always to pick up the thread with gratitude for the experience and for those who've passed through, perhaps joined up or stopped to converse!

its a "lets see what's been filed away" day





The good thing about losing things is when you find them again.... when you can find them again...if you can fin them again! Some things today are still lost but some good finds ...  and tonight going through my emails...looking at what I saved to look at later... here's a few of those things - a bit random... but what the heck...





 Instillations by Judy Ledgerwood

OK...thats a bit of colour for the day!

The moral of the story: a good search for lost items is never wasted time...you always find some treasure you have forgotten about.

Great inspiration here. The droog people are fabulous. Saw their rag chair and some other furniture pieces at
the Art and Craft Museum in NYC. Just great new ways of looking and thinking about re-thinking things. Thanks for sharing.

Hi Vivi,
its good to go back and find what you have earmarked when time permitted more blog travel than recent weeks permitted...it was fun!!
Cheers,
S


Hi Maryanne,

see you!

Hi Dosfishes,
I must look further into their designs - just love the space in this home...and the shelves...Unlike so many big places there was the feeling that all spaces here were lived in...they were all animated and poetic spaces - I loved that!
thanks for coming by!

I've been thinking of you MP... things to catch up on for sure. Awful you have been detained like that... makes me restless thinking about it!
You are so sweet... so encouraging...(always) noticing the little things whilst reading the big picture too!
They were very central to homage happening - so important to recognise this!
Seed mosaics ...never ever did that!
gotta fly out the door,
ciao bella,
S xoxo
