Waffle House Wedding

These photographs from the Gwinnett Daily Post (the local paper in Gwinnett, Georgia) are pretty amazing. Taken by the staff photographer, Benjamin Hager, they are wonderfully evocative.

Russia! Russia! I see you now, from my wondrous, beautiful past I behold you! How wretched, dispersed, and uncomfortable everything is about you...

Combining some of my passions (photography, russia and farming) is this new audio slideshow by James Hill on the NY Times' wesbsite- Russia, the Land. Some of the photos aren't great, but it is definitely interesting to watch, especially if you've ever read any of the many great Russian novels about agrarian life there.

Someday I'll make it there, and actually get the opportunity to use the Russian I worked so hard to learn.

It's a cage without a key


Here are a few more photographs of one of the metal shops that I mentioned in this post. Work Manufacturing is a fully equipped metal, machine and wood shop run by Alex Kravchuk hat specializes in vintage-inspired industrial design. They've worked on quite a few restaurants in New York, such as Moto and Smith & Mills, so you may have seen their work before.

I used to live in a two room apartment

Ever since I was in Copenhagen a few weeks ago I've really been interested in Danish design. I've always liked it, but, in general, it is a little too clean for me. Seeing all of the artichoke lamps everywhere made me really want them (especially the copper version)- I'd never actually been a fan before, but the copper ones were just gorgeous in real life. Since I won't be able to afford one for a very, very long time, I might just have to get one of these lamps- still Danish, but definitely not as impressive as a copper artichoke lamp. These would look pretty in my dressing room, though.



It is also much cheaper- you can find these pretty flowers here.

Come on it's time to go upstairs



I haven't posted in a couple weeks- since getting back from Europe I have been incredibly busy and haven't had much time to think. I'm selling a couple great vintage pieces on Ebay right now- !http://www.blogger.com/img/gl.link.gif
