  1. Everywhere Anemones

    While looking for a photos of anemones, I came across this anemone light fixture, which I think might be really amazing in the right space. I, however, do not have any such space, but a girl can dream.

    Edited to add a photo of my own anemones against my photoshopped wall color, because my real wall color makes me sad in my heart:

  2. Impressed

    Dear PressingLetters.com, how you distract me. In my dreams, I have the ability to make my own beautiful letterpress creations. In reality, I just need to read you more often. Love, Danielle

  3. Wishes

    I’m pretty much in love with these Merimekko Lettinauha Tights. There’s also these ASOS Heart Suspender Sheer Tights — and while they’re a little saucy if you’re wearing them with a mini, I’d like them as my own little secret with my longer skirts.

    And what’s new socks without new shoes… I think I’d like these cute little numbers. I am such a sucker for shoes that tie with ribbons.

  4. Recent Discoveries

    Smaggle – Inspiring good style and great living.

    Lushlee – Ooo, she links to beautiful things. Like Cabbages and Roses… I need a bigger wardrobe!

    I’m having an exceptionally bad Monday, so I think I might tuck into the archives of those two for a while!

  5. Back to Life, Back to Reality

    Some fun things I’ve been experiencing lately in no particular order:

    * Pyrophone Juggernaut @ the Valley Fiesta – We were just walking through Chinatown when this giant metal ship came to life with music. It was mesmerizing.

    * PocketlMusiclatlthelManalBar – Saturday was a whole day of 8-bit computer game music. (Video montage here. That’s me in the white tights against the left wall at about :26.)

    * Tomorrow When the War Began: The Movie – My North American people probably won’t know about this one, but hopefully it will be released there sometime. This movie was based on a book that is apparently part of the curriculum at many schools here in Australia. I knew nothing about it, but I have a total soft spot for stories where teens band together to kick some butt. (Band of the Hand, anyone?)

    I haven’t enjoyed a movie so much in a long time. We’ve seen a lot of good films lately, but in terms of mindless enjoyment, this one takes the cake. I hate spoilers and don’t want to give much away, but this teaser trailer below does a good job of setting the mood without giving away all the major plot points like the official trailer does.

  6. Happy Blogiversary to Me?

    Last night I was finally changing my wall calendar over to September. (Hey, that’s my life lately.) And I realized that I missed my blogiversary. I don’t know if this past year should really count, and I haven’t been very committed to it… but here’s to 9 years.

    That’s sort of part of my secret from the last post. I have a domain that I’m not using. I’m planning on packing up shop here at some point and starting up over there. But life is happening, and I’m obviously in no rush.
