lately, i can't stop looking at accessories especially necklaces and bangles to wear in the summer. these pieces are by london based designer anna alicia. not only does she live in one of my favorite cities but she makes some cool pieces.

this is not your mother's macramé... this is yin chuah's awesome macramé. yin "hung out with hippies and "doing it tough" on the streets of bahia, brazil where she learned to macramé. she knots a world of shapes hinting at "space invaders, animal totems and the mystical aztecs." time to get your macramé on. visit yin's shop and site now.
i make lists all over the place... on random scraps of paper and notebooks filled with them. i came across this list hidden among a small batch of vintage papers. it's from 1929.
if you like lists, you might want to add this book by liza kirwin to your collection.

i thought i would start sharing some of the things i find on my vintage hunting/thrifting adventures. a few weeks ago, i came across this old letter. i have a love for letters and the letter writing art. this letter is from 1931 with no street address and no envelope. and i'm also a fan of cursive.
if you'd like to start writing letters, jen at indie fixx has a penpal project where you can help save snail mail.
i also recommend this book.

maybe it's that time of year with summer quickly approaching...thoughts of summer vacations. scooterfox's photos make you feel like you've taken a road trip... the very best kind that include staying at motels, eating at diners, meeting some folks and listening to some music. time to hit the road.
