Neil Young and Crazy Horse

Last night…

For someone who grew up in the north end of Winnipeg it’s only fitting my first show at the Hollywood Bowl is Neil Young.

Second song in they played my favorite

180° south

Knowledge, having facts and how we all manage, it’s really a small world, connected in so many ways and why not try our best to be conscientious consumers? Look at the bigger picture and it’ll just be so pleasant to be surrounded by people who think about these things. I’m reminded about a film a friend’s cousin and brother directed, appeared in and produced about traveling to Patagonia, 180° South. An inspiring story, especially poignant during this last stretch of an election year here. Check it.

Marni for H&M

Ya know I’m a huge Marni fan so this collab with H&M is such a treat. Consuelo Castiglioni and her design team, so clever and she is definitely my kind of thinking designer. My favorite coats and jackets that hang in my closet are no doubt Marni pieces, words can’t describe how well cut and designed these staples are. The cut and tailoring’s just so thoughtful and patient, so creative and some serious mad skills to sew pieces up the way they do, like no other and it seems they won’t disappoint with this collection, can’t wait.

I’m swooning over the bracelets and necklaces, both sequin collars, the signature prints and whimsical colors. Marni at budget prices, save the date March 8, 2012! Sweet!

backyard studio

Moving on up, a long time coming and it’s nice to stretch out and have everything in its place, organization never felt so fabulous and what a reno! We survived and success! Seriously now, what am I gonna do with all this space? It’s not a mega sized house, far from it but after a year and a half of sharing 480sq ft, 4x more space feels like a mansion and I’m certain more cleaning and dusting is a given. And finally the studio will no longer be used as a storage locker, it’s a clean slate again and we can finish it the way we had intended all along. Of course I’ll miss being hidden in the backyard with the birds and coyotes, the rabbits and like it or not the occasional skunk or two as company. Just 2 years ago it was a site of overgrown wild brush the animals had called home, change is imminent in our ‘hood and it’s like the coyotes are clued in on this fact as well, life moving forward and they were howling up a storm the other night.

Plans to redo the sink counter wall are in the works, more cabinets and a larger countertop with a fridge at the end, its own tiny kitchenette.

A proper patio deck with its own awning we can grow vines off of is another project for us this year.

Our cozy backyard studio strategically placed for all day afternoon sun and pretty sunsets.

Moving out, cleaning up all weekend and whether we knew it or not its like we were keeping in line with the ol’ Chinese Lunar New Year’s tradition/ritual of cleaning your home to expel negative energy or bad luck, making way for good fortune this new year. Check out my mom’s friend’s New Year spread in Winnipeg, the chicken is a little funny, no? Chinese/Vietnamese or not, Happy New Year! Rawr!

total lunar eclipse

If you missed it early this morning, this is what we captured before the battery on the camera died. Talk about my kind of eclipse here, I could see it out my window from bed, how ideal is that?
