I adore the second photograph! So hippie romantic. I know this may be off subject, but I was shopping at the Free People store in Glendale and must say that I LOVE the tunes being played in the store! Is there any possible way to get the list of the tunes playing? I'd really appreciate it :)

herbert pfostl

i found herbert pfostl’s book “to die no more” about a year ago…somehow i can’t help but visit his work every couple weeks…it inspires me beyond belief.

his blog is very intelligent, thoughtful and just plain perfect, too…

america continues to inspire and enchant.
since i last wrote, my friends and i were in virginia. our next stop was asheville, nc. this is rebel, my backseat travel companion.

our blue ridge mt morning was unbelievable.

from there, we ended up in new orleans. thanks to aforementioned cat, we got a sweet pet-friendly hotel room just outside the french quarter.
my favorite street, in my fave converse.
and then…we hit austin. and while we were at dinner, my friend spotted an aspiring designer – christie – who was wearing one of our knit tops. she loves fp, and i appreciate that she let me take her pic for the blog. :)
be good! more later…

Heh, your backseat companion looks scared. Or maybe that's just a wide eyed cat thing. I have two cats and I can't even get them to stay in the house, much less a back seat. Cool cat!

I'm so jealous of your road trip adventures! i'm itching to plan one now :)

monday quote

“the art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.”
– charles langbridge morgan

copy – desert

luren, who used to work for our store display team, is curating a show at copy gallery
it’s called desert. and it will probably leave you thirsty for more…
sorry, that sounds silly.
if you’re in philly, make it part of your first friday festivities. there, that’s better…
artists from philadelphia and los angeles are creating sculptures inspired by plants and structures of the desert using commonly found materials.

copy gallery, 319 n 11th st. 3rd floor. 6-11pm.


hi all…
this is the first chance i’ve had to post some pix…as of tonight, i am in tuscaloosa, alabama. it has been absolutely incredible thus far; i am already planning my next road trip. but anyway…just a few images to share.
first, waiting for my ride on my porch. wearing some sweet converse that i think are going on sale in the october catalog…not an advertisement for ’em, but they look great with everything. :)

our first (and maybe only) toll booth operator…definitely has the most coiffed ‘do i’ve ever seen in one of those booths.

this is on the road in virginia…reminded me of maxfield parrish or something…
we capped off our first night in harrisonburg, va…where they served some of the best bar food i ever ate – this is a gouda grilled cheese from the blue nile.
more later…hope everyone’s happy. :)

I went to JMU and love Blue Nile! You should also check out the art and food at Clementines and Artful Dodger!!! Have fun on the rest of your road trip.

corinne day

corinne day‘s photography is stunning…i’ve loved so many of her stories!



this jewelry knocks my socks off…

and her images…c’mon.

brian andreas

brian andreas makes art from old barnwood and incorporates words about a specific moment or memory…

this is my favorite thing about his work, really, as mentioned on his site:
“we believe (fiercely) in the power of stories, not because they’re our stories, but because it is valuable & right to protect the precious connections between people.”

As a Rookie, I 'm continually checking on the internet for articles that can easily guide me. But do you know the reason why i just can't see all the pix on your web site?
Mariel -Sep 28, 2009, 8:57PM
I LOVE Storypeople. I have 4 of them framed in my room, my favorite one reads "she said she usually cried at least once each day, not because she was sad, but because the world was so beautiful and life was so short." How pretty in such few words!
