do you know about john currin?

stamford brunch

just checking, cuz you should.

rachel in fur

that’s his talented wife and muse, rachel feinstein.  they are both celebrated artists, and my long time crush on the super-couple (particularly due to hieronymus bosch associations?) has been re-born with the gift of a book of his artwork.  i didn’t want to open it until the shelving unit was complete.  guess what? i finished it! but i still haven’t opened the packaged book . . . something about the suspense.  anyway, if you want to know more about j.currin, you could check out his wiki – but i think a browse through images of paintings would suit you better.  warning: some are nsfw


i’ve been on a DIY kick . . . painted a tarp for the bedroom (rather than paint the walls, i can bring this with me to the next apt!) and i’m working on a shelving unit which i’ll proudly photograph and boast if it turns out well –and if it doesn’t, this mention doesn’t exist–

in the spirit of making physical things (as opposed to digital ones) i am inspired by the one idea a day tumblr: 01mathery by design duo erika + matteo

particularly relevant (hi hub) i love this key solution — we currently use a shelf, which is nice and traditional, but hello – love the plugs! (hub: have any of these extra lying* around?) i smell project #3!

*laying and lying – so often misused, hope i did 144sheep proud here





available in 24 colors – this awesome chalkboard paint is so fresh!

my favorite is definitely bakery green <chartreuse>
