Here in Wisconsin, it is officially back-to-school week. It feels strange because for the first time in twenty-three years, I'm not helping one of my sons get ready for a new school year. Instead, I feel like a student myself, giddy with excitement for my new styling gig and collaboration with Past Basket. I hope to see you at Past Basket on Saturday, September 8 from 11am-3pm for the kick-off party.
If you need a little break this week from the back-to-school blues, or conversely, you want to enjoy some quiet with good reading, check out my favorite links from around the web:
In honor of John McCain's passing, here is David Foster Wallace's profile written from the campaign trail back in 2000 for Rolling Stone. Wordy (of course) and fun!
Also, if you have a subscription to the Washington Post, here is John McCain's op-ed on Neil Armstrong. Note: if you don't subscribe, you will encounter a paywall.
Doesn't this look like a house Katherine Hepburn would have lived in?
Is this true for you too? (Watch out family, I'm reading about a woman who took one year off to do nothing but read.)
This obituary is fascinating: a ray of light, an unmade bed, an unquenchable need to paint ...
House Beautiful really flubbed it with this post. The comments are blistering.
You know I adore handmade pottery. The obsession continues with these pieces.
All you 70s rockers, especially you Led Zeppelin fans, check out these guys. OMG!
Speaking of music, I'm helping a son turn his bedroom into a music studio. I like this display idea, minus the millennial pink wall.
