What a special film, if you haven't seen it, do yourself a favour and do so immediately, you won't regret it!

So much of modern love summarised in its black and white simplicity

Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind

Re-watched this gem of a film

Does anyone think Clementine's potatoes should have had a slightly bigger role, if not, perhaps a few more seconds on screen? They are brilliant. I have a list in my head of potatoes to make, dragon potato, Oscar Wilde potato, Sailor potato.

And of course the quote itself, which is stunningly sad:

How happy is the blameless vestal's lot!
The world forgetting, by the world forgot.
Eternal sunshine of the spotless mind!
Each pray'r accepted, and each wish resign'd;

-Eloisa to Abelard, Alexander Pope.

Jessica Stam UK Vogue November 2010

These two stood out, ligthting, colours, mood.


Old fashioned costume patterns

First off I apologise if these are your images, I saved them many years ago and came across them on a had drive just today and wished to share them. Only had them saved as 'old fashioned costume patterns', aren't they a sight to behold? Isn't it sad how trends and fashion can often leave a dirt heap atop of the beauty and trends of things passed?  

The joy and beauty conveyed in these pictures is enough to fill the heart with contentment! We cannot let these go un-regarded in this giant world of ours

Contact me if you have image sources and I will of course credit you immediately


Corky Saint Clair necklace

Long lusted after an anatomically correct heart necklace

but this one has birds in it too! Reminds me of the Bukowski poem Bluebird, "there is a bluebird in my heart..." Full poem here

Why would you want for any other combination? :)

Necklace from Corky Saint Clair, here is the LINK to their site

Pics from their fakebook page I believe

Some more posted secrets....

Post Secret, my weekly fix

Here are some recent ones that have not left my mind






Loss of hope

I think sites like Post Secret and Humans of New York show that people do basically want to connect, they just don't know how to many times, we all have our own paths in life to tread and many think their own is more important than the stranger next to them on the bus

All pictures are from here



This top photo is just stunning

Murakami is one of my favourite writers, and his interviews with survivors of the Tokyo gas attack is really poignant, very sad too
