you are beautiful

baronessa.
i have this book

but have yet to see the movie. thanks for the tip. also have a book by margaret kilgallen which makes me sad everytime i look at it...not her artwork, but her short lived life...so very sad.
another book which a friend just loaned me is this

"the journal recorded five years in the life and times of a smart and headstrong New York teenager, a young woman who loved Baudelaire, Central Park, and men and women with equal abandon."
this diary was found in a dumpster.
enjoy your moments of peace these days and get some reading in while you can.
i hope to see the swaney show with you live + in colour.

micro-art







Jowderella,

That's some summertime magic, to stumble upon those fine words!

And I'm hoping we have some magic thrifting in our near future: remember finding this book?
Micro-Art; Art Images in a Hidden World.
I pulled it out this morning to get some inspiration... I'd like a giant mural, floor to ceiling wallpaper.
And my birthday book came in the mail, so I'll make a glowing lantern to go with it.

Love to you,

Baronessa
