So I created this blog however long ago to share things that I'm interested in and things I've created. So far I've only been mildly successful at keeping up, but I've been meaning for a while now to write a post about my favorite golden age illustrator, Kay Nielsen. Children's book illustration is a particular favorite of mine, and from the 1880s to the 1930s is considered the golden age. Nielsen was a Danish illustrator who worked during the early 1900s and is counted among one of the greatest children's book illustrators of the time, along with Arthur Rackham and Edmund Dulac.

I am not nearly so adept a photographer, but here is my attempt at documenting that under-appreciated meal.

Hello again from Singapore! On Sunday we went to the Singapore Botanical Gardens to see their orchid garden; they have one of the largest collections of orchids in the world. Here are some of my favorites:
Love these colors.

Surprise! I'm in Singapore. My mom is working out here temporarily so my sister and I are on a ten-day trip to visit her!
Here are a couple of pictures from our first day here. We walked around Little India and watched some of the Singapore Grand Prix Formula 1 race!
This was about as good of a picture as I could get of the race. Those cars move fast! I'll be posting more pictures on my flickr as the trip goes on, and I'll try and update this blog too!

I love these t-straps. They are just as casual as a flat sandal, but the tiny hint of wedge would keep my legs from looking too stumpy. (Listen, I'm short).
Ok absolutely out of my budget. And while I'm not that crazy about the flat sandal in general for this summer (short legs remember), these are absolutely perfect. They have the hippie vibe that flat leather sandals really ought to have, and the leaves add just a touch of Grecian whimsy. These would be perfect to wear to a music festival with a floral print romper and big sunglasses. (Maybe these).
Well this has helped scratched my online shopping itch at least a little bit... If anyone would like to give me a job though, seriously that would be great. I need to fund my idyllic summer filled with traveling, outdoor parties, concerts, and obviously great shoes.
