white ribbon




I just saw 'The White Ribbon' last night. I'd seen a preview for it & read a couple of reviews that had gotten me very interested. I often don't know what I think of a film until several days after I see it.. the same is true in this case.

The black & white imagery is beautiful & stark. I'd read- and I think it is safe to say this is true- that this film is an examination of the fundamental German character of the early 1900s. I'd recommend seeing it.

spring preview



in anticipation that spring may one day come.. I've added some linen, chambray, sleeveless & light

stripe store



I just stumbled upon this amazing source of stripes & wool. The selection, for both men & women, includes striped cotton socks, wool duffle coats, traditional fishing shirts, berets, and cardigans at brittany boutique

fascinating




I recently acquired "Science Is Fiction: 23 Films by Jean Painleve." The films are short surrealist takes on underwater observation. The commentary is funny & somewhat bizarre. The imagery is very beautiful and strange.
