spring break

northern star,

i'm back!
but still in a lazy dazy haze of turquoise as i pack up boxes and get ready to go on tour...

st. barth's was delicious..
trouble .. check.
tan lines... check.
not so much there in the way of noodles
but a little piece of warm bread slathered in delicious french butter... yum.

i like your macrame project
i vote we macrame some pink bikini's out of that stuff
and head back to the caribbean pronto.

miss you.

la la la lovely

how goes?
how was the break?
did you get into trouble?
did you work on yer tan lines?
did you eat some noodles?

i know this crafty fluoro macrame stuff is all over the place these days, but it hasn't grown old yet -
all that gorgeous climbing rope at MEC, that i ALWAYS want to buy yards and yards of, but have no idea what to do with? macrame baby!

think of the possibilities!!!

start here though. not complicated. you can go all sally england on me later.

noodles + quince

i was looking for quince blossoms tonight for a little project i'm working on, when i discovered march is national noodle month! did you know this???
i will for certain be heading to kintaro (care to join p?), followed by lin's and my beloved bowl of noodles with pork and pickled greens (e?).
(and here's where i found the noodle month tip. their list of spots in la includes din tai fung and a peruvian place i'd be curious to try.)
ps still owe you that h&m post. i'll get there...

(first quince and second quince)

caftan crazy


i pinned the top image from joanna's pinterest a while ago and have been obsessing over the colours, volume, and length since then.
it kind of clicked for me while rifling through the racks at one of our favourite thrift-spots a few weeks ago, when i found the bottom dress, in full length muumuu (not miu miu) style. one go with the scissors and i had my own version (plus the necklace (awesome)) for a grand total of $9.98.

as for marni, i have a tale to tell.
next post, i promise.

missing you,

marni at H+M


i missed out on this yesterday as the idea of waiting in a line for anything is not my cup of tea unless of course you were there to keep me company...
a crying shame really because these pieces were made for us.

miss you
kiss you

lady j

p.s. finally taking my beautiful watercolour ships from you to the framer's today!!
