thanks Rob, for introducing this amazing version of the King Arthur
story to me- made in 1981, the year of my birth, this film still has some legs...
mainly, the entire thing looks like a Fleetwood Mac Album cover
worth a watch

Miles to go......

Whose woods these are I think I know.   
His house is in the village though;   
He will not see me stopping here   
To watch his woods fill up with snow.   

My little horse must think it queer   
To stop without a farmhouse near   
Between the woods and frozen lake   
The darkest evening of the year.   

He gives his harness bells a shake   
To ask if there is some mistake.   
The only other sound’s the sweep   
Of easy wind and downy flake.   

The woods are lovely, dark and deep.   
But I have promises to keep,   
And miles to go before I sleep,   
And miles to go before I sleep.

-Robert Frost

warmest wishes to you and yours this holiday season,

and a bright and joyous new year

wabi inspirations

being in post 27 has been a really great experience in many ways
it's wonderful to be exposed to so much local and vintage design
interiors, objects, furniture
Angela Finney- Hoffman, the proprietor of the shop had the most beautiful book
called Wabi Inspirations, a collection of images by the designer/ curator
I want to inhabit a home that reflects this kind of quiet beauty
I am trying to create a stillness in my spring collection that feels like this:
clean, elegant, warm, and minimal- we shall see.....
