(the Mermaids)



Found photographs from Signs and Wonders, a collection by New York artist Roz Leibowitz.



'Items contain the memories of their makers and all items have secrets to share.'



(the Stroll)



‘Elaborate works of dreamy patterns and decoration are drawn on paper culled from the vintage letters, ledgers, trade catalogs, dental charts, menus, roadmaps, and any other bits of ephemera she collected during her twenty-year tenure as a librarian in Manhattan and Queens.’ ~on the work of Roz Leibowitz from NY Art beat



(Lights out)



(Yellow Morning)



(We three)



(the Midnight Ecstasy)



(the Girls)



Wishing everyone a very Happy 4th of July!

I've been sort of missing this week, not sure if anyone noticed, but at the very last minute I was able to take some time off at work and squeezed a quick getaway into the week. It was really nice. Next post will most likely be on that...

The thing with digital is, only we go to the effort of printing photos, found photographs will dwindle away to nothing. Which would be sad indeed. These bygone faces! I wonder what they were all like.

gladiators really are super comfy- apart from taking a bit longer to put on and take off they are the best. I love how much more style they have compaired to flip flops but its like wearing the same thing!
excited for your next post!

What beautiful photos! Thank you for sharing.

Oh, I meant to tell you (like a week ago) something about that vinyl decal post - I also think the headboards are an awesome idea, and I'm planning to get one because we don't have a real one either! :)

Hey Harriet said...

A beautiful post! A quick getaway sounds fun! Good for you! It's nice to grab the opportunity to escape when it comes along :)

another beautiful post that I will have to come back and back and back to love and appreciate. I also love seeing George make his return on your page! I do love your new look as well, I have been playing with blogger but haven't found "the look" just yet. I hope your unexpected holiday was a fabulous one.
