i want to go and hang out with these people, because they all seem so happy and fun!
these pictures certainly make a refreshing change from the typical pouty model, that’s for sure.
love them all, the beautiful homewares especially.

i spotted this ‘cocktail’ jacket (second from the top, on the right, though looks nicer in this picture) yesterday whilst looking for a new thermos.
sidenote: do you know how hard it was to find a decent thermos?! those things are ridiculously overpriced and / or poorly made. since breaking my old one about two months ago, i’ve been buying coffee everyday; wallet / environment guilt every morning, great way to start the day. anyway…
this jacket is really, really nice. really nice.
images are from here, shop is here
it’s my boyfriend’s birthday this week.
and although i got him a bag last year, wouldn’t it be incredibly thrift-like and wonderfully ecologically-thoughful of me if i got him something that i know would be loved and used*?
like these (conveniently) unisex ally capellino bags, say.

my favourite colour scheme, as represented in some recent knitting…
all details can be found on my ravelry page, for those interested
i have been enjoying reading zita chocarro’s blog this week, another lovely find thanks to pinterest.
honestly; what did i do before pinterest? (homework / housework / had a social life …)
she also has a shop here
another great lookbook, this time from draught dry goods (would especially like this camera strap)
all of these paintings by michelle armas have sold, which is really great to see (if somewhat disappointing for my imaginary house and hypothetical ‘artwork budget’…)
there are plenty more similarly ‘wow’ paintings available to buy here
i have been enjoying the daily sneak-peak of wool and the gang’s new collection on their blog: i love their stuff, so simple but stylish.
and i love even more that you can buy everything ready knit, or in kit form.
i’ve never bought anything from them (yet: hugely prohibitive shipping costs, unfortunately) but maybe this will be the season that i break down and get something (perhaps this).
as someone who has always ‘made stuff’, i am a late comer to kits (and following patterns, actually). instead i used to just look at something and figure out how it was done, and then did it myself. to varying degrees of success, it must be said. i still do this, but have recently discovered the ‘joys’ of actually reading instructions, and actually producing something that looks like it should. and my knitting (especially) is getting so much better.
following instructions. who knew they worked?!
so from now on, if i’m ever at some terribly lame dinner party where someone asks the question ‘if you could change lives with anyone, alive or dead, who would it be?’, i will answer penny wong.
because, oh; to be so talented, and so lucky to have visited all these places.
(although she might not be so happy with the exchange, unless she likes having no money and living in a house that currently is currently emitting a strange and un-locatable smell; in which case, score)
all photos from her blog on blue pool road, but really: that is just the beginning of her genius
i’ve never been much of a horse person – i think i went riding once as a child, and my friend’s face got trodden on; kind of put me off for life – but i love these pictures by irene suchocki (found via simply olive).
i mean, where do you even see things like this, let alone have your camera ready to take amazing photos?
because i’m so broke these days – but happily so; i’ll take less-work over more-money ANYDAY – i’ll just imagine that i can afford to buy these.
(like everything else on this blog, really)
