Love this!

December 2, 2011

Can you believe it's already December? December is one my favorite months; the weather here in Miami finally starts to cool down, the Christmas decorations come out and of course good ol' holiday shopping! I love shopping for loved ones- I try and put a lot of thought and meaning into gifts. So far I've done shopping for my dad, sister and Mike. I've got a long way to go! We're most likely getting our Christmas tree tonight, which I am looking forward to decorating. In the meantime, here are a few of the cool things I saw online this week:

This really pretty holiday decoration, made using spruce branches, from Ballard Designs (I personally want to try this with our left over tree branches when we trim it to size, etc.- it looks easy enough! I could do a YB!)

This really cool Vizsla blueprint (they have a lot of breeds to choose from, both dogs & cats) from the Animal Blueprint Company

This great print by Zara Picken

These new prints from Curtis Kulig; hearts & graffiti- two of my favorite things!

This Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind print from Nan Lawson (one of my all time favorite movies)

This tattoo based on a Chinese legend (except this tattoo has it wrong, it should be HER pinky and HIS thumb) "According to Chinese legend, two people who are destined to be together are attached by an invisible red string bound from a male's thumb to a female's pinky finger. An invisible red thread connects those who are destined to meet, regardless of time, place, or circumstances. The thread may stretch or tangle but will never break." One of my favorite Polaroid diptychs I've ever shot was based on this legend. I never thought of getting the red string tattooed, but I'll admit, now the idea has definitely caught my attention!

This hilarious tattoo flash set by Mike Adams and Tron, featuring those funny cartoon meme guys

This bokeh dress from Ermie (via From Me, For You) I love me some bokeh, so this dress is pretty awesome to me

This photograph by Paige Place (I can't wait to see this in person this weekend and shoot it myself!)

This short video of Riley I shot this weekend when we took her to a lake


  1. I need the blueprints for Otis ASAP. That is so neat.

    The Red Thread of Fate! ♥

    I love, love, love the video of Riley!

    I love your posts! Keep it up :)

  2. love the blog makeover!

    that evergreen initial is awesome.

    and the red string is so cool, i'd never heard of that before

  3. Oh wow! I LOVE that tattoo! Makes me want one.

  4. I don't know where you got your information from about the Red String of Fate, but it is not entirely true. According to Chinese legend, the gods tie a red cord around the ankles of those that are to meet one another in a certain situation or help each other in a certain way. It is in Japanese culture that it is thought to be tied around the little finger, not the thumb of one and the little finger of the other.

    1. I found my info online somewhere.... 3 years ago when I first made this post. Thanks for the input.
