I survived 2010 (or, the great feat)

grrrlike a tiger print, 9 usd, from poppopportraits

woodburned spruce trivet, 10 usd, by nickoli

double autumn branch necklace, 26 usd, from mineralsandmetalwork

adorable cowgirl brooch, 15 usd, from yalipaz

PRETTIEST wreath from NHWoodscreations, 35 usd.

This is pretty much the most amazing thing I have seen in a while. 2011 Letterpress wall art foxes calendar, 25 usd, by sycamorestreetpress.

Okay, so I don't approve of pets wearing clothes (although mine have some utilitarian clothing for special purposes.....shut up) but this is pretty awesome. skipper pea coat, 70 usd, from RoverDog.

I've been slowly working my way through Jean-Luc Goddard's films and am now on Une Femme Mariee. I like Goddard's films because the dialogue is very similar to what goes through my mind on a daily basis. He took simple notions and made them dynamic, while intertwining them with philosophy and history. My favorite line from this film: "Women live for men but won't do anything for them." I think, if I could choose a different era to be my age now in, it is a tossup between 1920's New York and 1960's France. Goddard's France, of course. In black and white.

I survived 2010. I would say, in some respect, that 2010 was a year of exceptional emotional growth for me. When I look at how I reacted to things in 2009 versus 2010, it amazes me to be sure. I feel like 2011 will be a continuity of such growth, but probably with more emphasis on organization and finances. At least, that is how it is panning out thus far. Although I have been a complete grouch since Sunday for no reason-- I think I need a vacation!

It is a very snowy day in Tennessee. I really enjoy snow and after four years of living here I am finally seeing quite a bit of it! I have been exhausted all day long for no reason whatsoever. I am thinking of grabbing a soy chai latte (my second cup of tea today-- geez; so much for that new year's resolution...), pulling out my inspiration file (from my fashion school days-- I'm sure some of it is laughable to say the least), and working on the clothing line today. I found some really great fabric this weekend (and a plethora of other amazing vintage finds) and I am dying to get a few things made before I start back to classes on Wednesday. I will probably end up sitting at a coffeeshop somewhere because ever since winter hit, my wireless at home has completely sucked. I spent an hour last night just trying to update my flickr page and do some stuff for school and I finally just gave up and went to bed. Each night is kind of hit or miss with my wireless, so maybe I will get lucky and be able to curl up at home, listen to Benoit Pioulard's newest album, drink tea, and get my work done.

And now for something completely different.
