All you need is love......

Out and About In Rockridge!

There was a street fair today in Rockridge and we had some amazing food and drink and there was of course some fabulous vendors serving yummy bites and interesting clothing. I bought an Obama pin, ate a pork sandwich and had some sangria from Citron restaurant!

Could be the Venue!

My Dad was up in Inverness this week for work and visited Bunchrew House Hotel, which overlooks the Beauly Firth. It is literally by the shore side and sits on 20 acres of garden and woodland. It only has 16 rooms, which we would use for the weekend of the wedding making for an intimate and relaxing setting. There is a large, 260 year old cedar tree on the grounds under which to marry which is known locally as "The Loving Tree".

Jason Miller Teapot

My teapot arrived! It pours well and I just love the quirky placement of this otherwise traditional looking pot. He has a whole range of ceramics in this 'seconds' collection. Jason Miller is an artist from New York who worked as a studio assistant for Jeff Koons, and an art director for Oglivy and Mather.
He began his own collection of work in 2001.
Comments from this collection:

are items, which, in some way, are not quite right.
they are imperfect and therefore of lesser value.
but who made these rules that we use to judge perfection?
who says the decoration has to be in the center?
who says a whole bird is better than half a bird?
who says a flower can’t grow down?

Green with Envy!

I found these Gucci shoes online and I'm green with envy! I love them! I'm not sure what season they are from but they are, in shape and color, very relevant to this falls trends.
Everytime I shop for shoes I think of this!

Pink Floyd 'Animals'

I lived in Battersea for around a year and passed the power station every day. I just discovered this cover art for 'Animals'. Pink Floyd are up there as one of my all time favorites and I love this shoot above Battersea with the inflatable pig. I cant believe I didn't know or discover this sooner.

Espionage Baby

'Arabesque' by Stanley Donen. Entire wardrobe by Dior. Sophia Loren and Gregory Peck star in this 60's espionage, very British film.

Kitten on Wheels

I discovered this movie by chance one night scrolling around the on demand feature with a glass of wine in tow. It was amazing, yet disturbing, so violent, sexually and physically, with the tag line "An innocent girl is first prize in the dirtiest game ever played!" YEAH I know!
I ate tacos last week across from the hells angels club in Oakland and I was drawn like a moth to the discreet, skulking building and drawn curtains. I have always wanted a bike, a custom chopper actually. Coincidentally, today the leader of the San Francisco Hells Angels was murdered and it may be a rival gang, the Mongols (R.I.P Mark "Papa" Guardado). I couldn't help but take immediate interest, especially after seeing this movie and glimpsing the cult like, brotherhood for its grim yet seductively bad ass self. Now I will buy the soundtrack and work on becoming a kitten on wheels!
