how funny is it that i was just talking about the ladies choir and they are performing sunday, may 24 with asdsska at the family bookstore on fairfax. this is family's first record release party as a record label and it should be a great night. this is what family had to say about asdsska:

asdsska is a duo consisting of aska matsumiya (the sads, moonrats) and david scott stone (the sads, get hustle, unwound, melvins). matsumiya is a classical trained pianist and the single, '25', features a slow debussy-like piano refrain accompanied by her delicate voice and stone's ethereal modular synthesizer drones. the b-side is 'we feel it more than they do', an ambient instrumental variation on 25's melody.

the music video for 25 was directed by spike jonze and crystal moselle and they are debuting it tonight as well. all in all it should be well worth the drive to the west side.

i stumbled upon demitasse jewelry a year or two ago and fell in love. i'm really picky with jewelry, typically liking small, delicate pieces (unless it's turquoise) so when i saw the collection, i couldn't forget it. the prices are pretty spendy but if you think about what you're getting in the long run, it's worth it since they're something you'll treasure for a lifetime. she uses sterling silver, yellow gold, and rose gold with precious stones such as diamonds, emeralds, and pink sapphire. every piece is hand tooled, drawing inspiration from fine tableware, with such intricate tiny details.. it's beyond belief how beautiful the entire collection is. i was even more intrigued when i found out the designer, rachel white is a los angeles native.. i enjoy supporting my fellow angelenos (when support is warranted). i was lucky enough to stumble upon one of my favorite pieces at a jewelry sale and snagged it up for what i believe is a stellar deal and have worn it religiously ever since.

the ice cutter spoon necklace. i have the top one in gold.

living sisters

i adore becky stark (of lavender diamond). she's also put together a ladies choir, that i'm very sad i'm not a part of.

by and by

the time does fly
and the earth
once more
rests her head in her hands

went to the rose bowl flea market yesterday. came away with some good stuff. this is by far my favorite find:

harley davidson sterling silver and gold cuff.

i also got the eagles greatest hits record, 3 small tillandsia, and a 48 star american flag. more "stuff" to add to my collection.

simple nature.

the first time i saw a piece by coe & waito, i fell in love. i adore raw porcelain and have a major appreciation of beauty/art occuring in nature, so the combination of the two floor me.

their studio

for no apparent reason.
