Winter Uniform (via a-z west)

Check out the work of Andrea Zittel. I’m not sure I can properly convey in words how spectacular I think the these pieces are; coveting the dress and sweater especially. There is also desert living, indigo dyeing, a boy named Emmett, and a cat named Thunder Angel. Really worth a look! Now that it is … Continue reading

Window Seat Wednesday

Hello and welcome to the late edition of Window Seat Wednesday! I really like today’s choices, here we go! Back in France with a stop in the Versailles gardens.
