Photographer Marianne Kjølner snapped this pair of photographs of a bizarre tree in Denmark. Of the photo she says: “This old pink house is situated at the old dunes, a few hundred meters from the west coast, a very windy place were there isn’t much that can grow. So the tree can only grow where it has shelter.”
George Chamoun’s Iconatomy photo series reveals what we’ve all thought for a while: all actors look the kinda same. This Lebanese artist is now based in Sweden and craftily merged stars from old Hollywood with today’s current celebrities to give us a very odd but very familiar set of faces.
unnecessary photo share: so the backyard here is pretty neat. there’s tons and tons of greenery and a lot of hippie decor, and a random mirror hanging on the fence. i almost want to steal the fire pit thing, it looks like no ones used it in forever. sigh. hopefully i can go home soon :)
in richmond talking to myself well it’s my second week in richmond watching animals. this trip was kinda hard on my car, it seems to hate the bay area roads and stop-go traffic, and the steep hill it’s parked on wasn’t very easy for it to get on. speaking of cars, there were 2 cars weaving in and out of their lanes on my way here, causing surrounding cars to pull to the shoulder. they almost hit my car but luckily i was looking in my rear view. it was ridiculous, especially since there was a line of cards from a funeral on the highway… i just don’t understand people sometimes. anyway this place is super lonely and it’s making me wonder if i’m ready to live in a place alone, even with 4 animals here it’s so quiet and i hope time passes quickly. i might go walk down to the water later, if i can get my work done. or down to hotel mac, or starbucks… i have a free coffee code.
peace he starts his new job tomorrow and i am so happy for him. i don’t know what the coming months will bring us, especially when we are both making such huge transitions in our lives, but that just make the moments with him so special. these ones, the good times, where our worries are small and discussions we worry about having are months away. i don’t know what changes will come and how we will handle them, but i have faith that what ever happens, if we are as perfect together as we feel we are, that it will work out in our favor. so right now, in this moment with him sleeping by my side, all i am going to worry about is him waking up on time tomorrow and that the whiskey will ware off by morning.
i’m just not sure how to feel or what words to say. my stomach turns and my eyes tear up when my thoughts go back to that place. you say, “sweetheart? anything you wanna talk about?” for the hundredth time and all i can let to the surface is a smile and a “nothing at all, do you know how much i love you?” and that’s that. my mind is so gone and i wish i could unfeel what has been already felt.
happy valentines day from del monte pines in monterey bay! this has to be one of the shabbiest inns i have other stayed at, but after driving all night anything worked. you can hear everything through the walls and there was coffee but no filters… it’s kind of hilarious that we are spending our first valentines here but i mean that in an endearing way. we’re going to go out for a nice breakfast soon and then explore the area… i’m excited :) it doesn’t matter where you are, it’s who you’re with. happy love day.

this is my self expression collection. even the worst things have something to love in them. even the prettiest smiles have the saddest stories to tell. these are my sad stories. my happy stories. my collections of day-to-day things i love and things i love to hate. i find pleasure in the imperfections of life, the mischief that is found in detail, and the comfort in a bottomless cup of coffee. i have an unrequited fascination with empty rooms and architecture. my ultimate goal in life? making a home. my life is all about designing a map that leads me to a structure i can call mine. this would make my life complete. through art, expression, design, and strong relationships i plan on working for this goal. so follow along as i ramble & share with you the little nothings i find along the way. oh, and hi. name's gloria & i like to make things pretty.
