I ate myself silly on Thursday. Did you?
Also, I shopped a bit and bought myself clothes that I would never waste time sewing.
And I sewed clothes that I would never frustrate myself buying.
And I watched The Giver. I will say two things:
- Jeff Bridges is wonderful.
- Just read the book. I read it about 20 years ago when it first came out. My friend, then working in Harper Collins, sent it to me. It blew my mind and I gave copies to my students just because. This was when dystopian/utopian novels weren't even on the radar, let alone fashionable. Was it the first? I don't even know. It's raw and truly evocative in a way the modern dsytopian page-turners aren't - ground-breaking then even as it is now.
Finally, here I am in a concise little feature on Terrysblinds, an interior design blog.
I don't feel interior designer as much as Random Toymaker and Occasional Costume Seamstress but what do I know, right? Maybe people have finally caught on that cardboard greengrocer shops are a furniture staple in every playroom. Or any cardboard, really. Hurrah!
That said, read about the other featured designers on the Designer Insights wall here. Thank you for the feature, Terrysblinds!
