Winnspiration?  Really?  I’m sorry.  I recently stumbled onto these young “full-timers” via ETSY.  They are living out of an old Winnie that they gutted and remodeled themselves, selling beeswax candles molded from antique bottles and the like.  So. Jealous.  The interior is so breathtaking as to squash any doubts anyone might have about the potential awesomeness that is mobile living.  Or at least, it helps, I hope.

Best of 2010 – San Fransisco Trip

I was cleaning up my phone today and realized I have hundreds of pictures that I’ve done NOTHING with, that have been totally forgotten!  Over the next week or so I’ll do a sort of “Best Of 2010” cell phone pictures.  : )

These were taken in San Fransisco over Christmas.

Ladies and Gentlemen, the Fabulous Diane Lane


Most people have never heard of it, and that is unfortunate!  It received poor reviews at a screening (it was ahead of it’s time) and was sort of forgotten about.  If you were ever wondering what happened between first wave punk and Riot Grrl, this was it.  It’s a 1982 film starring Diane Lane, Laura Dern, 2 sex pistols, an original Clash member, and directed by music producer Lou Adler.  This movie makes me feel alive and super feisty.

I know it’s all about selling individuality, and the irony in everyone following suit – but I can’t help it – it makes me want me to dye my hair and strut around town in my drawers.  Dream I might, but in reality I wouldn’t have the guts to let it all hang out, so here’s an updated and more realistic interpretation.

Speaking of Diane Lane, FUN FACT!  She turned down both Risky Business and Splash to film Streets Of Fire.  (Never heard of it?  Yeah, me either.)  She was however also in The Outsiders, and more importantly Rumblefish,  If you haven’t seen either of these you MUST.

Just look at this cast listing:

Both Rumblefish and The Fabulous Stains are streaming on Netflix right now, btw, so no excuses!

DIY Antique Book Clutch

I’ve been lusting after these book clutches for some time now, and today at the flea market I picked out the perfect book to transform into my new purse.  I wanted something a little smaller, just to fit the essentials.  The Olympia Le-Tan clutches are beautifully embroidered, but at $1,330.00 I just don’t think I can afford it right now… or ever.

I’m not a huge fan of the Kate Spade version, and at $300 – still too steep for me.  I made my clutch in an afternoon, out of materials I had lying around the house.

Total cost: approx. $7.00.
