I absolutely love seeing people's offices/desks/work spaces/studio spaces. I love seeing how they organize their mess and supplies and how each space perfectly reflects the owner. Functionality is truly in the eye of the beholder. Put one person in another's work space and they probably wouldn't know where to start.
My whole bedroom is my work space; A desk covered with drawing supplies, paper scraps, piles of magazines. Cozy corner chair for drawing, with sketchbooks and drawing boards.
I'll let you look at these beautiful spaces, instead.
I made these bad boys from old prints and drawings and I absolutely love them. They're so sweet, like little candies. Now, I don't know what to do with them other than put them on my floor and look at them.
Will they be a part of a larger piece? Will they exist independently? Will they survive on their own? Will they hang from a pin? Chinne-colle?
I guess they'll just lay on the floor until they decide to tell me what they want to do.
I am in love with Anna Hepler and her beautiful prints and drawings. Such a gorgeous style that I'm totally jealous of and have never been able to employ. Simple, yet intricate. Delicate but strong. I dig it.
Totally unrelated, but I just have to tell you that I almost flipped the other day when I saw these photos of Drew Berrymore at the tiff premiere of her new movie Whip It! She's wearing my most coveted dress ever, by Alexander McQueen. What a lucky bitch! It's amazing. She looks great. I won't even get into my jealousy over all the John Galliano creations she's gotten to wear as of lately. I'm even kind of feeling the hair, it's very Berlin.
How adorable are these pebble rings? I want hands full of them. Be sure to check out some more work by Djurdjica Kesic.
On a completely different note, since the weather has been so nice I have been spending many afternoons and evenings lounging in the backyard. All the flowers are still blooming and it's just so fragrant and peaceful.
Not a single day has gone by when I haven't had a visit from the cutest little hummingbird I've ever seen. He likes munching on our blooming hummingbird vine, butterfly bushes and super tall cannas. He's so precious! The other day he flew over and hovered just a few inches away from my face. I'm convinced he is attracted to my red hair.
Did you know that they build their nests with spiderwebs? I just learned that today. So neat.
My name is Malinda Jane. I don't know lots of things. I'm skilled at running away. I collect found objects. I love the smell of lavender and mint. I throw clean clothes in piles on my floor. I never make the bed. Strangers make me nervous. I drive like an old woman. I draw on paper napkins.
I write a blog about art and fashion and food and life.
