tricks 'n' treats

Thanks everyone for sweet comments on my latest dress. I'm working on another one, so unless I get derailed you can expect more soon!

flickr favs, 10-30-07

I always find it interesting and oftentimes revealing to look at my Flickr favorites and recognize the common strains of inspiration. Right now, I'm being inspired by: soft, filtered light, the natural world of leaves, flowers, butterflies and moths, muted autumnal colors (duh), and simple cotton dresses (double duh). Other inspirations:
  • The layered looks of flour clothing's fall/winter collection. Honestly, I want to dress this way. I especially love her incorporation of vintage fabrics, several of which look like they could have come from my grandmother's attic!
  • Spreading a little serendipity. Although I honestly hope none of them read "Your romantic life will soon take a turn for the better." I've received that one WAY too often lately (and been disappointed). (via)
  • I love many things about Martha's work, but I especially love the way she records her processes and inspirations. Looking at these images challenges me to be more bold, to get my ideas down in pen and ink (or needle and thread!).
  • Mmm. Autumn seems the perfect season for soups, and this butternut squash recipe has definitely made it to the "must-try" list.
How about you? What are your current strains of inspiration (visual or otherwise)?

glad i can help with the inspiration! i love that tree right in the center of all the pictures. well placed ;)

casey said...

Oh my goodness! I love all the photos you've got there (I guess I know what I'm doing after this comment--trawling through your Flickr favorites! hehe)! Thanks for the link to Flour; like you I am in love with this! I would so totally wear this if it were big-girl sized! http://flickr.com/photos/9978907@N03/1535678434/

What is inspiring me? Oh golly--it can change so quickly! hehe. Right now: sunlight, antique fashion illustrations, vintage fabrics, and muted colors. :)

I wish I had a blender for soups...

I'm inspired by fresh tomato sauce made from olive oil + cherry tomatoes...I saw a guy from my department make a small saucepan of this at his house the other day, and all I could think was all the variations of that I suddenly wanted to try. Though I guess you were looking for image and texture inspirations, not culinary ones. Also, tomato sauce isn't very fallish. My beef burgundy the other day was more fallish, but it left me feeling kind of heavy and in need of something lighter.

Blaze said...

What a wonderful blog you have! I am so glad that I happened to stumble upon it! I love your photos and inspiring posts! Especially this one! What a perfectly smart idea! It is so important to keep being inspired, and these photos are gorgeous!

I like to make lists in my journal often of my inspirations (it keeps me excited and motivated!), And here are some from my latest entry:

deer, old illustrations, pirate ships, parasols, distressed wood, teapots, flowers, bathtubs, pearls, art studios, dresses, tree-houses, lanterns, old maps, light leaks in photos, lace... Oh my, the list goes on and on! :)

Thank you for your wonderful post!

Hey everyone!

Tracy: I can't WAIT to try your soup - it looks delish! About the tree - generally I'm not self-conscious about my favs, but the twin tree images from Aubry were too much to resist.

Casey: I eyed that same coat! I have some lovely sage-colored cordouroy that would be terrific . . . but wait - I have too many coats already. But my neice could use one!

B: Culinary inspirations are definitely welcome! Thyme is my current culinary obsession. Actually, your tomato sauce sounds deliciously tangy and fallish to me (but then, tomatoes are a year-round staple for us Italians). ;)

Blaze: Thank you for your sweet comments, and welcome! I love the list.

thanks for the kind words:)
Right now I'm being inspired by images of iceland -all the grey and moss....

[url=http://www.adidasforum.com/adidas-retro-kicks-come-with-a-retro-game/]Adidas Forum[/url]
Now here is a shoe-in for the list of the year's best gaming-related clothing : Adidas has brought back its ZX 500 running shoe, and, since it originally is from the '80s, the gaming galvanized design and coloring is a simple choice ... Right? The kicks would possibly not be the coolest part of the deal, either ; they come packaged with a combination bracelet/USB flashdrive containing ZX Runner, a software game based on ... The shoe itself.

GameCulture writes that the game stars a personality named'DJ Zed' who, according to Adidas, has 5 mins to'run, moon-walk, climb walls, avoid some dodgy-looking thugs, collect power-ups, and pull off insane rooftop-to-rooftop stunts' in order to get on-stage before his set starts. It's suitably retro -- see for yourself in the video we've included after the breakdance.

The French gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne has a wonderful aroma, a rich taste; the saltiness increases with the incidence of veining. The overall flavor is piquant but not overly sharp. Bleu d'Auvergne started life as an imitation of Roquefort, using cow's milk in place of sheep's milk. Legend has it that a peasant, around 1845, decided to inject his cheese with a blue mold that he found growing on his left-over bread (the motto being, waste not, want not). And thus, the gourmet cheese Bleu d'Auvergne was born. This French gourmet blue cheese comes from the region of Auvergne and the cheese is made from milk of Salers and Aubrac cows. The rind is very thin and so the cheese is usually wrapped in foil. The cheese is rich and creamy with a pale yellow color and scattered holes and well-defined greenish-blue veining. We cut and wrap this cheese in wedge of 8 ounces and 1 pound.

Once upon a time air travel was a great deal simpler than it is today. You called one of a few airlines that flew from your airport, the agent would tell you what flights were available for a given time, and you booked the one you wanted. Airports were always bustling places, especially during the holidays, but as long as you gave yourself adequate time, the process was usually the same. You would check your bags, go through the x-ray machine, get your boarding pass, and wait patiently at the appropriate gate. Once you got on the plane you ate the snack or meal that came with your flight and watched a movie.

In recent years travel by plane has become significantly more complicated. There are so many different configurations for flights and types of fares. Dire economic circumstances have caused airlines to raise rates and charge extra fees for everything from baggage to blankets. There are complex rules about what you can and cannot carry in your luggage. It can be very difficult to determine whether you are getting the best deal or the best services when you buy an airline ticket. The internet makes the navigation of airlines, airports, and flight itineraries easier, but, even so, be prepared to do some research if you want to find a flight at the best price.

Here is something up front that might save you time and money right off the bat. If you are traveling within the United States mainland, always look at Southwest Airlines first. Southwest is almost always the best deal you will find. However, Southwest itineraries do not appear on the major travel websites, so always go directly to the airline's website for information. Plug in your travel plans, and you will get a list of all the flights that are available. Southwest typically charges more reasonable prices than other airlines, and there are no hidden fees. The price you see is the price you get although tax and the government fee that is attached to all flights does apply. For lower prices than you can probably get anywhere else look at the "web only" fares, but keep in mind that these fares are not refundable.

Long time lurker, thought I would say hello! I really dont post much but thanks for the good times I have here. Love this place..

When I was hurt in that motorcycle accident my life would be changed eternally. Sadly that driver had no car insurance and I was going to be hurting for ever.

This was not time for me to start and guess what to do. I had to find a good accident lawyer to help me get what I needed. After all, my family was counting on me.

How awful was it? I has bedridden for 6 months, I had to have constant care and my clinic bills went through the roof!

Gratefully, I found a good referral site to help me.

I will post more later this period to tell you more about what I have been going through.
