After reading and re-reading all of your kind responses to my post last week {and hearing a few friends grappling with something similar} I’ve decided to follow my gut and take a more genuine and thoughtful approach to the content on here. Thought I’d start off with a few vignettes around my studio that I’ve put together with some recent flea market finds.
On a somewhat related note, I watched Bill Cunningham New York this weekend and was really moved by his passion. Such a fascinating character, and so married to his craft. It definitely put a spotlight on how little separation there is between work and life for creatives sometimes.
I’m headed out of town for the rest of the week to one of my favorite California cities, but I’ll have lots to share upon my return. Until then…!

    Ah! I finally hunkered down to watch the Bill Cunningham doc this weekend too. I really didn’t know anything about his character so it was quite an eye-opener. I was very moved as well.

    I’d recommend the Frank Lloyd Wright documentary if you haven’t seen that yet. I had no idea there was so much tragedy in his life!

    Alice- I will have to check out the Frank Lloyd Wright Doc. Sounds interesting!

    Looking forward to your “new” blog! Your last few posts had got me thinking and I hope to create more genuine and thoughtful content on my blog as well. Thanks for the inspiration/reminder and have a fun trip!

    How exciting! I’m looking forward to watching your blog change direction.

    Oh Bill….how I love you. Isn’t he just the most amazing person? Such genuine unpretentious passion for fashion and style. It’s incredible how he remains so grounded, seemingly without the active intention to be so. I completely adored him in that film. I’d say it was one of my favourite films of 2011.

    I meant to post a comment on your post last week, Jessica, but somehow it passed me by. I just wanted to commend your thoughtfulness, courage, and interest in more original content. I made the same decision last Spring and feel so much more inspired and energized to share with my readers every week… I think you will too!!

    I really can’t wait to see all the beautiful things I’m sure you will create for us here on your blog! Today’s post is a wonderful start.

    I loved that documentary. I felt like Bill is probably the sweetest thing ever.
    Also I love that hat illustration, and I think probably your wood floors. So dark!
