list #31: 4 beautiful things
Still buried, friends, so in lieu of a proper post, I thought I'd share with you a list of beautiful things I've come across recently.
1. Shop decor. The abstract mobile above is hanging from the ceiling at a Free People store here in Houston. Isn't it sort of glorious? (An aside: I can't help but wonder if the term "vegan leather" is really a nicer, more politically-correct term for "pleather," am I right?)
2. The recipe for pesto. Tell me the video below doesn't make you want to run into your kitchen, grab one of those rocking-knife-thingies and get to work:
3. A thousand words. This video is an oldie, but a goodie, exploring what happens when you take the opportunity to connect with someone. And look, it features that cool actor from Saturday Night Live!
4. A turntable that plays slabs of wood. Consider this the song of the day: this turntable takes the grooves from the rings of tree trunks, and translates them to piano. Haunting, man.
Enjoy, friends. Hope to come up for air tomorrow.
