colors of spring

Found an old stack of tear sheets from my beloved Bazaar magazines from the 90's when it was the vision of Liz Tilberis, Patrick Demarchelier, and Fabien Baron. I remember being so mesmerized by how modern and fresh it felt, like nothing I had ever seen before. Does this date? Documented as fall colors, but feels like spring to me.

via ATLA from Los Angeles Magazine, the "25 Ways to Go Green Without Going Insane" list. Nice.

a user's guide to the 21st century

world changing, a user's guide to the 21st century is a really great reference book i purchased at reform school. it answers to a lot of the questions about the all the environmental issues facing us and ideas in how to approach them. i am reading about consumption, why china wins, healing polluted land, building a green home and even about the hidden vitality of slums. i like that these are specific examples. hard to see from the photo, but it's as big as a textbook or large bible. everyone should read this.

eric kent wines

last night, we stopped by our local watering hole, colorado wine company, for no corkage wednesdays and picked up this lovely bottle of eric kent rose. i discovered eric kent wines last year when i was attracted to their wine label. i'm guilty of buying labels, i'll admit. they are a small vinyard up north who dedicate the entire front label to artists and leave the necessary verbage to the back side. this front is by painter sharon eisly.
