Colours and sounds that blow my tiny mind

And a question to contemplate - Cheese School or Nude School?

Baby Vogue-ing

I love this photo of Sabrina. Never thought I'd say this but respect to Anne Geddes cos babies are hard to capture with a camera. Phenomenal cuteness! She's trying to say some words, it came out like "brrm brrm" so maybe she's taking an early interest in motor sports ...

I haven't been watching much early morning C4 lately but the other day I saw this one. Supergrass has long been a fave of mine - I remember buying their first cd and getting a t-shirt with Hugh Grant's mug shot on it.. Went to their concert years ago, even got a cd signed when they came to Christchurch. Anyways, I liked this a lot - is like a mini doc and who can resist a mermaid

Fornasetti cushions
Originally uploaded by kebabette
In the era of the remix and the mashup, the way the designer Fornasetti worked and reworked this same face is inspirational.

The serene face so endlessly repeated is that of Lina Cavalieri, an Italian soprano renowned for her beauty.

I've long loved his work - have got a book (the library has it too - Fornasetti: Designer of Dreams) a Swatch watch and Marion O kindly scored me a brooch in Melbourne featuring my favourite image - the face in armour.

Flickr has some cool images with the Fornasetti tag.

This week I spotted these cushions in Annex in Victoria Street - and realised Trade Me might be worth a look. There are some badges, plates and necklaces for sale. I'm plumping for the badges - after a hot auction where the price skyrocketed, they came again on a 'buy now' so I leaped on in.

More Trade me subjects:
Art deco and retro

White Lies

I love White Lies and their album "To lose my life" is on high rotate at our place. Enjoy their deep dark majesty.
