Climbing Trees, Smelling Roses.

Friday, September 20, 2013

Happy Friday! I'm working on a new POV post about fashion and beauty that will be ready to share early next week; in the meantime, a collection of curiosities before the weekend: to start, Kai Fagerstrom's photos of animals inhabiting forgotten cottages in Finland,


a bicycle-powered lift into the trees,


and, lastly, an amazing guide to matching the colors in a friendship bracelet to those in photographs. So well done, Fieldguided.

And three more, because...why not?
-Lynn Yaeger's beauty routine: lipstick blush and henna hair dye.
-Lucas Boirat, beaming.
-E.B. White on his dog, Daisy: "At the moment of her death she was smelling the front of a florist's shop. It was a wet day, and the cab skidded up over the curb - just the sort of excitement that would have amused her, had she been at a safe distance. She is survived by her mother, Jeannie; a brother, Abner; her father, whom she never knew; and two sisters, whom she never liked...She never grew up, and she never took pains to discover, conclusively, the things that might have diminished her curiosity and spoiled her taste. She died sniffing life, and enjoying it."

Have a lovely weekend! 'll be going to the beach - for the first and last time this summer - and celebrating the Autumnal Equinox with a dinner party at my apartment. I'm thinking of making homemade marshmallows - worth the mess?

I got a homemade friendship bracelet for my birthday this year, and now I can't wait to get home to see if it matches up with any of these photos. Also, homemade marshmallows are always worth the mess! Happy weekend, Shoko!

Those photos of the animals are so beautiful. And Daisy the dog's obit brought a little tear. Have a good weekend my friend.

You've just inspired me to make friendship bracelets for the members of my best friends bridal party... I'll snag some of her inspiration photos for my color palette... and hopefully all those years of making bracelets at summer camp will magically come back to me :)

Kai Fagerstrom's photos are really impressive. The little fox looks like a "Fantastic Mr. Fox" character. Adorable.
