Heading into fall season, I’m examining my boot collection (or lack there of). And I am lately obsessed with La Botte Gardiane. Here are my faves, but enjoy looking for yourself too!

I posted Stardust from a long list of blogs it had already been featured on a while ago. But I revisited the artist’s own website and found several other gems I thought I’d share.Jochen Hein 3 Jochen Hein 2

like all of her work, these use nature as metaphor to explore human emotion.   her inconography of trees, water, rocks, mountains, clouds and the stars and moon recount stories, or maybe it’d be more accurate to say open-ended fables.   because even after you’ve deciphered her symbolic language, it’s never really certain what’s going on.

of course, that’s what makes them interesting…   every viewer brings their own interpretation based on their experience (and issues).  think of them as psychological landscapes.  or representational rorschachs.

is the tree supporting the moon here?  a gentle caress? a tender embrace?   or is the moon pushing the tree around?  bullying.  holding it down.  turning it into a bent thing… incapable of reaching its potential?

is the moon an obligation?  a burden?  you know the expression, “the weight of the world on your shoulders.”

perhaps the moon is illuminating the reflection of the birch…  the lamp…

Beautiful via Travel-Inspired Shopping Site. (I am going to say it though – nothing like working at a start up to finance the rest of your life… See story.)

Danielle (friend) and I have been obsessing over these Vincent Van Duysen Ceramic Pots. They come in many sizes, but they all have a tremendous presence and gorgeous mood. I LOVE them.

Just noticing how worldly these 4 things are… Travel far, live well…

7 on Locust

April 25, 2014 § 1 Comment

I can be a little on the lazy side… If there’s one place to go and get everything I need, I will gladly do that. So, I was thrilled to find that 7 on Locust has set up shop in my local Mill Valley! And for any of you who suffer the same malady, don’t worry – you can be even lazier than I am, and access their offerings via the website.

I was recently in and 7 on Locusts’ owner, Nadine Curtis, walked me through some fave’s! Thought I’d share…

Dress, Eggs, Bag

Ostrich Eggs, imported from South Africa $38. Totebag by Winston, $288. Dress by Anna Von Hellens, $360. Round Mirror curated by Elena Calabrese & Nadine Curtis.

LiliesTable

MANDELA: The Authorized Portrait by Mac Maharaj, $50. Silver Stream Pebble Table & Gold Tree Stump Table, call 7 on Locust for pricing, 415.388.9696. Cruiser Sail Tote by 7 on Locust with Recycled America’s Cup Sails, $49.

 

Vases,Art,Sail

 

Glass Vases, $25. Leather Door Stop by 7 on Locust, $118. African Boy is by Tyrrel Thaysen of Knysna, South Africa from The Small Square Series by The Creative Block, South Africa. $135

I love the offerings, but the reason it’s worth a visit is to see the artistic community that Nadine is nurturing in her space.  Not every storekeeper opens up the back of their space for fellow artists and designers to keep office space and collaborate, but Nadine has embraced her community, continuing to surround herself with friends and inspiration!   A meeting of creative minds is always a good time, and the front side of the store is just a reflection of how beautiful that can be!
