wednesday~thursday post combined? why not...

it's been a hectic week at avant garde design all the way around. so many interesting, exhausting things going on between classes, my teenage son having his new summer job and add in work on top of all that and voila...hectic. not that i'm complaining. sometimes hectic is full of fun and inspiration, like now. so...for today, i'm posting about random wednesday~thursday things, products, color palettes that i'm lusting after.

super drawn to clean lines and pairing down, as in these spaces from loft life magazine. breathable spaces. sigh....


wanting these hand~made vases, from jersey pottery, for my summer table, indoor or out. imagine placing stems sticking right out of those holes as well as straight down the middle of the vase? would make for a stunning table display. or wedding idea? hmmmm....

how super fun are these "early bird" pendant lights from greener grass design? for either a nursery or above a small reading area in your home? ceramic, these pendants come in a variety of colors and are perfect for doing lighting differently!


i love the textural element and wonderful color palette offerings that objeti provides with these gorgeous "drop stools" (with eco~friendly wooden seats and aluminum legs) and these "soft tools" felt pendant lamps, hand~pressed and naturally dyed. really loving these!


i've been asked to produce a short film for the course i'm taking this summer, the subject matter being my choice. the course is anthropology and film. so, i've been visiting a local large fair that comes to my area each summer. the people that travel with the fair move around all over the north east. i've narrowed down two gentlemen who have allowed me to follow them from beginning to end, interviewing them, hanging out with them, getting to know them, setting up their area of the fair (they travel with a petting zoo, camels, goats, horses, you name it!) all the way to when the fair ends in 10 days and they break it all down. then they move on to the next venue. i've always wondered about what that lifestyle must be like and now i am finding out. creating a short ethnographic film on two guys. jason and tim. isn't that intriguing? i'm loving it. perhaps when it is complete i can post a link to it on utube for anyone who'd like to see the finished product? no laughing at my very non~technical self though, this is my first time producing a project like this. i'm using an ipod nano for my video taping. so far it's working out like a charm. anyway, that's why i've been so busy and hope to be back to regular posting soon...enjoy!
