lazy friday

The view from bed; a little relaxation before we head opposite ways to work tonight.

Miranda July saves the day!

Just in the knick of time - the week ahead promises to be a busy one. If I ever talk about taking a philosophy course again, please (PLEASE) hit me over the head with something.

Now, to stash the laptop before I browse Nowness for the next hour.



PS: Sorry for not linking to the video on Nowness directly. It seems Blogspot won't let me embed the video so I had to seek out the youtube version.

Lotte Bostlund

Ever since reading the article on Gunnar and Lotte Bostlund (and their ah-mazing lamps) in the most recent issue of studio, I've been on an internet hunt for one of my own. Alas, they are hard to come by and at least a couple hundred dollars when I do. But seriously, look at these creatures of beauty - of course they're coveted!



Anywwwway - Imagine my excitement when I found one at Goodwill yesterday! On half price day, of all days - the day we tend to avoid because the store is so picked over. I paid $4.50, and it even has it's original shade! The only thing that's missing is the harp - which, always seems to be missing on lamps in thrift stores. It looks almost exactly like the lamp in the photo below, but both the base and the shade are a foot taller. This thing is a behemoth. (A behemoth of beauty, yes.)
