Pick-Me-Ups.

Tuesday, December 11, 2012

It's been a rainy few days here in New York. Online gems that've lifted me up and away from the gray include the kaleidoscopic wonder that is Kevin Champeny's gummy bear chandelier...


...these 1960s skateboarding photos taken by Bill Eppridge in New York City...


...and, of course, Maru. Always Maru. That face!


Have a happy Tuesday.

I'm freaking out over this chandelier. Joe said he can see why we are friends! You always find the best stuff. Thanks for a little Monday night joy :)

Haha...that last picture = chuckle city for me, sitting alone here on my futon.

And the first thing I thought of when I saw that gummy bear chandelier was, "There is no way I would be able to make that, because I would end up eating too many and running out of gummy bears/puking."

Happy Tuesday/end of Monday (PST)!
