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]

Sick in Bed

Hello Lovelies! pretty amazing shot by sam&matteo. I'm so sorry about not blogging lately. I must tell that I am sick in bed. Also my computer crashed. And the day before, I stumbled upon the pavement and hurt my knee pretty bad. On the other hand, I'm in love ( <3 ) and I gathered a LOT of material to show you guys! So hopefully I'll be back soon and things will rock design-wise! :-) -Beautymist.

And I immediately noticed that said picture was by Flickr member "dailypoetics". I immediately fell for that name. And what a delight was is to discover that behind "Daily Poetics" stood a very interesting collage... [Lire la suite]

I'm sorry I didn't write sooner, but I didn't feel so well last week, so instead of a Happy Week-End, I wish you a "Happy Monday!" Here are a few pics of my whereabouts this last week-end, searching for the source of the river Loire in Ardèche, France. They were sweeping views, of course, but i also met this nice little fellow who had amazing colors on his back and even turquoise legs! View from Mont Gerbier des Joncs. ... [Lire la suite]

David Lynch in Paris - Galeries Lafayette's shopping windows, Boulevard Hausmann, until October the 3rd. Sketch by David Lynch for the Paris exhibition. image source : Le Monde Hello Lovelies!
