the sundance film festival started yesterday in park city utah and runs through january 31st. among the films that will be screened are “howl,” about the life of beat icon allen ginsberg and the events leading up to the writing of his famous poem, and “the runaways,” about joan jett, cherie currie and their band’s rise to fame. but perhaps the most anticipated screening will be “exit through the gift shop,” a documentary film by the mysterious street artist banksy. check out the trailer:

Isabel Lucas is a girl I admire so much. I love her relaxed approach to fashion, she never looks boring. I find there’s always little touches to her outfits that intrigues me whether it’s a floral scarf, a little pinch of embroidery or a wicked vintage T. She knows how to use fashion to create a style that works for her personality and comfort zone. Above all, she has a great heart. She’s an active volunteer for so many charities that it’s hard to keep track of her. One of her most recent being Sea Shephard.
She’s my favorite muse, I heart her!
the lineup for this year’s coachella music festival was announced yesterday…and man i really wish i could go. but check out this poster…i think they’re getting a little extreme with the varying font sizes, don’t you? yes, i know that the larger bands are “headliners” but still, i had to take a second look to even notice some of the smaller bands that are playing. actually, i’m more interested in some of the ones you can barely see…like les claypool, edward sharpe & the magnetic zeros, girls, beach house, deerhunter and big pink. apparently, fader was on the same wavelength as me…check out their funny article about the poster here.
the lineup still looks amazing though…if you’re having trouble reading it above, check it out here. what do you all think? anyone going to go?
i really want to try and make a rag rug. i’ve been looking around online for tutorials on how to do it, and i’m so inspired just by pictures of them! i think they’re so beautiful and a perfect way to use up any fabric you might have lying around.
these images are from the rag rug flickr group (yes, there is one)…check it out here…believe me, you will be inspired.
apparently there are several ways to make a rag rug…some tutorials involve crocheting, like this one on vintage chica. but if you don’t know how to crochet (like me) you can still make a rag rug just by braiding the fabric!
moda bake shop has a really great tutorial showing you step by step how to do it. once you’ve picked out the fabric you want to use, cut it into long strips and just start to braid! start at the center of the rug and work your way outwards, forming a circle with your braid as shown in the images above. once you’ve finished, just sew the rows of braids together! for the full tutorial click here.
i can’t wait to try it!
i want my bookshelf to look like this…with photos and little trinkets.
i love this idea…a collage of photos, cards and various keepsakes on a desktop, covered by a sheet of glass.
and i really want some antlers to hang jewelry from.
