Danielle Kroll

J and I spent the past week up in the San Juan Islands.

It can be hard work, relaxing.

I felt like I had finally got the hang of it, even sleeping until what would normally be my first union break at work; of course by then we had to make our departure and return to reality.

Life can be so hard sometimes.

Check out Kroll’s designs for ‘The Wedding Story.’

Considerably more sassy than the sweet and whimsical print above.

Two weekends in a row J and I have been to the river.

Of course, I didn’t bring my camera to take pictures because J didn’t think it was safe to bring valuables into the canoe with us. He’s a smart man… so you can blame him for the lack of photographs.

This leaves the score: summer fun: 2 :: blog: 0

 Brooklyn artist Spencer Finch utilizes light and colour in his installations to re-create moments of “light”. Most of his pieces specify a certain time and place in which he is attempting to re-create the light of that specific moment.

I recently used Finch’s work as an inspiration for my science class that I teach to 2 year olds. Even as young as they were, the students really began to experiment and think about how light and colour effect the way we visually interact with our environment.

i.wheelie.like.you.

This is a mini documentary featuring the Spanish brand peSeta in conjunction with the New Museum of New York chronicling the union of two mechanical lovers: a bicycle and a sewing machine. The result was this sweet film and 15 lovely bicycle caps (which can only be found at the New Museum shop–235 Bowery, NYC). Megafaun‘s The Longest Day was a beautiful feature in the film as well.

It almost compels me to go out and ride a bike. Almost.

m.i.a.

I’ve definitely been flyin’ like paper these past few weeks as I’m sure everyone noticed by my drought of posts. (I wasn’t getting high like planes though, don’t judge me) Sometimes I’m just a terrible blogger, what can I say? Anyways, I’m back in business and I definitely don’t have a shortage of lovely things to share.

Brace yourselves, is all I have to say.
