Oh, and Happy, Happy Friday!

Hello Lovelies! Have a swell week-end and warm yourself up watching this great photo by hijiriK, via the sfgirlbybay blog. Also, have a great Halloween night! I'm wearing a black moth-eaten sweater right now to feel in the mood, and I bought decorative, (non-edible) squashes for the home. Spooky! enjoy! Beautymist.

Tea (and bugs) with the Caravan

hello Lovelies! I found out about the great store, online or not, named "Caravan", through the clever Victoria and her sfgirlbybay blog. Here are a few of its tea-related items. Beautiful and sweet, aren't they? Now, they hold something that is NOT for the weak-hearted, but that with my love for bugs I really want, is a set of bugs magnets for the fridge! Hooray! enjoy! -Beautymist

My Apologies to John Hopper

Hello, (image from The textile blog, via Apartment Therapy) I've been blogging about Neville Tricket lately and somehow mixed him up with another wonderful man, called John Hopper.How did that happen? Well, they both share a great love for art for instance, they have both wonderful Flickr photostreams, BUT John Hopper is the one with a strong love for textiles and a very organized blog and photostream about the subject. The man is good, believe me, and he's been mentioned on Apartment Therapy, right here. Here is where... [Lire la suite]

Tea with Neville Trickett

*One* man I'd love to have a long, good conversation with a tea cup in hand is called Neville Trickett. He comes all the way from South Africa, I live in Southern France, but we share a similar love for art, anything wunderkammer and strange, and diptychs, to name a few. Victoria from sfgirlbybay had been lucky enough to exchange a few words with him as an "unexpected guest". Check out the interview and the images! Neville has a great blog named Saint Verde (I wish I knew why) and an outstanding flickr stream, with a... [Lire la suite]
