Having been gone for a week or so, I'm feeling a little overwhelmed by the internet. I am actually afraid of looking at my rss reader it's so large. So I thought I'd go through my bookmarks instead. And hey there are some cool things on these internets that I forgot about. Check it out.
I think my new year's resolution this year will be to see more art. I mean really get off my butt and go see the art not click the art. I wish I could have seen this amazing piece that combins a piano piece by Satie and origami which lasted an entire night. You can read about it on the upon a fold blog--a fantastic blog and shop too. The resolution begins tomorrow by going to the exhibition called Handmade Meaning: The Value of Craft in Victorian and Contemporary Culture. It runs Dec. 17 through Feb. 6th at the James Watrous Gallery here in Madison and a friend of mine has some crocheted hair pieces in it that I am eager to see. For those of you not local you can see more photos of the exhibition here.
I'm sure I wont be able to see the work of Victor Dubrovsky in person anytime soon, but you can almost feel it just by looking at the pictures. I am quite taken with this wolf, but all of his work is pretty amazing. He even has some needle felting tips (this is for you, Helen!)--via well-crafted
It may not neccessarily be art, but it's still awesome and afforable: Abbey from Aethetic Outburst has an etsy shop called The Eight Dollar Holler, where she sells all the good vintage bits she can find for 8bucks. Nice, right?
I would pay a lot more than eight bucks for someone to bring me buttermilk chicken in a waffle right now or even smoked salmon in a waffle or really anything in a waffle. Oh my god this sandwich looks good.
but that's not going to happen, so might just make this. or maybe waffles.
