17 Days of Noël

An architectural approach to the Christmas tree, one that subtly echoes its beautiful surroundings. Scanned from a vintage copy of Marie Claire Maison.

My apologies for being so slow to post today, but I'm fighting off a bad cold at the moment. I'll have more for you soon.

Jennifer Squires Holiday Card

The wonderful photographer Jennifer Squires has a brand new holiday card for 2008 — and not only is it pretty, but it's eco-friendly, too. Printed on 100% recycled cover stock (50% of which is recycled from post-consumer waste), it's processed chlorine free, and the energy used in the printing process is 100% wind-powered via renewable energy credits. Great idea. Find it here at Jennifer's Etsy site.

More Blog Love

Lovely Debo of Oh? tagged me a while back, but it's taken me ages to actually settle down and think about what I'd actually say. So, with apologies to Debo for being so slow, here goes:

The Rules:
- Mention the rules on your blog.

- Tell six quirky yet boring, unspectacular details about yourself.
- Tag six other blogs.
- Go to each person’s blog and leave a comment that lets them know they are tagged.

Read on for the boringly unspectacular ...

1. Although I'm a minimalist by inclination, my place is overrun with books, which are pretty much anti-minimalist in their tendency to accumulate and take up space at an alarming rate. And I won't even mention the stacks of design magazines ...

2. I'm currently trying to devise some sort of knit hat thing that will keep my ears warm while allowing me to still wear my hair up in its usual deconstructed bun. I'll let you know what I come up with ...

3. I always wear lipstick. The deeper the tone, the better.

4. I love old movies — and I totally get why screwball comedies were so popular in the 1930s, as there's nothing better to cheer you up when you're feeling blue.

5. I can't wait to go back to Paris for another visit.

6. I love the crisp cool weather of fall the best, though walking in freshly fallen snow and listening to it squeak under your boots is always good, too.

I won't be tagging other blogs as I've just done that with the Blog Love one from yesterday, but I will definitely list six more blogs that are equally well worth reading:
