Love this photograph of Lily Cole — not only is it beautiful, but it makes you want to know the story behind it, too. From a lovely shoot by Arthur Elgort for the November 2004 issue of UK Vogue. More from the same spread here. Via moodboard.
The lovely loft space — once a factory — of Viennese architect Alexander Loebell isn't just a showcase for a collection of antique and modern furniture and art. It's a home where he and his wife are happily raising their family, too. All that room must be wonderful for kids' games! Via LoftLife.

Danielle of the charming Stitchface has been busily prepping for the upcoming holiday season, so she's in the process of adding lots of cute new items to her shop! It's a perfect time to do a little preliminary holiday shopping. And some fun Stitchface news, too — Danielle was featured on the Etsy Storque recently, for a feature on how to present yourself to the press. Cute pic, Danielle!
Sarah of the lovely Pink Street Design is generously offering an exclusive promotion for automatism readers in her shop! From now until the end of November 2009, when you purchase jewelry from the shop, simply enter a short message in the "Message to Seller" box on the Purchase page at checkout (mentioning you discovered the shop on automatism) to receive a 15% discount! The discount will be refunded after payment through PayPal, and (even better) covers the total purchase amount, not just a single item. Happy shopping!
