I love that there are very few things that books cannot do. They can pluck you from under the covers and drop you into the outskirts of your imagination. They can rearrange the chemicals in your brain until you feel happy and uplifted, or wistful and nostalgic. They can with the careful placement of words side by side remind you of places you have seen in the dreams of your childhood that you thought you had long forgotten.
I would love to make one of these books my own. I feel like their beautiful exterior would inspire me in my quest to make the inside equally as magical.
a few of our fp girls attended the kings of leon concert at tinley park in chicago this past weekend and shared some photos for the blog! i love their outfits – i hope they didn’t have any incidents involving pigeons… :)
i mentioned grace potter & the nocturnals the other week because they were one of the acts performing at the XPN music festival – but today i wanted to dedicate a whole post to them. i think grace potter is one of those musicians that you need to see live to really appreciate. she can really rock. i think she’s probably the only female musician around right now who could do justice to jefferson airplane’s “white rabbit.” check it out:
quirky but incredibly cute! an fp girl who works in one of our stores sent me the following…
“on friday i got promoted from the part-time MIT to full-time MIT and one of the associates said congrats with the cutest little present – an old glass jar filled with pink flowers & broccoli! … so strange but so fitting, i love flowers, and broccoli is my favorite food ever. i thought i’d share these pictures with you because i’ve never seen anyone arrange something like this before, and it made me smile!”
i’ve never seen anything like that either! so original and sweet. thanks for sharing :)
