“so i’m on winter break…and have a ton of free time. i bought a cheap ukelele and am currently teaching myself how to play via youtube. anyway, i was still bored, so i decided to decorate my uke using acrylic paint… i think it ended up looking pretty freepeople-esque!”

i agree! i love it so much :)

tunesday

it’s the last tunesday of 2010!  i was thinking back on the new albums that came out this year, and it’s always interesting to me how listening to certain music can bring back such vivid memories of specific moments.  for instance, the local natives album gorilla manor – i bought it soon after breaking my ankle — and it reminds me of the first time i was able to drive again after the injury.  i had it on in my car, it was sunny and spring was on its way… happy times.  lcd soundsystem’s latest album will always remind me of sitting right here at my desk as they soundchecked next door before doing an end-of-summer show at the navy yard.

so many memories of the past year came rushing back as i compiled some of my favorite songs of 2010 for this playlist. i got to go to some great shows this year, and we had fp girls representing at so many festivals – SXSW, coachella, bonnaroo, wanderlust, XPN, lollapalooza and austin city limits…

what was your favorite song or album of the last year? what’s your favorite music memory from 2010?

Post image for stories from our fans

i asked, and you responded! thank you so, so much to everyone who has sent in stories about their connection with fp! your stories, photos and artwork are beautiful – please keep them coming!

in the meantime, i wanted to share one of the very first emails i got, from sarah:

“I’ve loved FP since about 10th grade in high school and I think the reason is that in a lot of what you all do I see a reflection of myself – especially since reading the blog.  I think the things that inspire you inspire me as well. I recently graduated from UVA with a Studio Art major in painting… I’ve painted since I was little and love it for the creativity and self expression it allows me. My grandmother was also an artist (I still use all of her old paintbrushes and paintbox), so I also appreciate the special inner connection it makes me feel to her. My work is very free, whimsical, feminine, and I am in love with nature so very inspired by that as well. I feel that these are a lot of the qualities that I also see in your brand and that is why I am so drawn to it.. As for other interests, I am currently getting certified to teach yoga classes, love music and going to shows, fashion, snowboarding, anything outdoors and with my friends… I find your blog and everything about FP such an inspiration so just thought I would share the connection I feel to it :)”

and here is some of her lovely artwork:

A wonderful little story, especially the part about using her grandmother's paintbrushes. What a wonderful legacy to carry on!

I think this is alluding to ganja, it's saying don't seek out dealers,or constantly be searching for a way to obtain it. Just grow it for yourself! :)

Happiness is around me now. I am enjoying my present life and the future life will be better and better.

Turkish Delight

Post image for Turkish Delight

My eyes keep dazzling over these beautiful Mediterranean inspired rings, they look like heirlooms that have come from some royal Turkish family. I tried every single one on my fingers and was captivated with their presence. They look so powerful as if they could cast magic at any given time!

Here’s a little about the designer.

Bora

Born in Turkey, Bora’s experience immersed in Mediterranean culture is one of the many things that inspires the jewelry that he makes today. His dream when coming to the US was to be a musician, but his creativity and imagination led him towards jewelry design, allowing him to use his engineering background to carefully craft his designs with close attention to detail and dimensions. His favorite material to “play” with is oxidized silver as he appreciates the historic quality of the metal, and his pieces are an abstract and interesting addition to any look.

 He works from his studio in Brooklyn, NY to create statement jewelry reminiscent of textiles and motifs found in the Mediterranean and his home country of Turkey.

 We hear at home office love his work they look extra special on too.

Vicky Leach -Nov 14, 2011, 2:12PM
I bought several of his pieces this weekend. I am entranced with his work!
