tuesday's treats?

Madewell has such nice clothes...
I love this "look," especially the top half.

Found this designer (Jo No Fui) kickin' around today... very pretty children's clothing. I love the earth tones!

(what a beautiful child)

Elegant dresses found in the women's Autumn/Winter 08 collections (also on Jo No Fui).

Took this (hanging out the side of my friend's car) going through Otisfield, ME. Everything has been covered in ice since Friday's ice storm. Who doesn't love Maine?

Italy is getting tons of rain... Check out the NY Times slide show all about the flooding.
St. Mark's Square in Venice, Italy (above).

Tourists... they're the best, aren't they? (St. Mark's Square, Venice, Italy).

Steven Alan has great clothes... I'd call it retro-classy-homey.
I love this striped Laurel dress.

Check out this very Ralph Lauren meets Jacki-O jacket here.
It's on sale (for $349.00)! Maybe 20 years down the road I'll be able to afford his clothes.
Also found these today:
1- Max Wanger Photography: LOVE the layout of the site... it's what I'm modeling my coming-soon photography site after!

2- Oh Leoluca: fun Etsy clothing site... funky-hipster.
Love the faux fur clothes.

3- Twig: (stole this from A Cup of Jo). Fun things for clothes, toys, home.

Really talented tattoo artist found in Portland, ME. Phuc Tran is the reason why my artist moved to Maine!
Cool clothes found here... apparently this designer won't be open for business for much longer... sad!


Saving Wild Salmon in Order to Save Orcas

An article I found in today's Times about saving wild orcas from sea lice spread by salmon bred in fish farms ... really interesting and pertinent to the eco-crisis we're facing right now.

I want a pair. They're here on Target. They'd be perfect for playing in puddles!

Cool fashion / photography at ErynBrinie. Really interesting website... maybe I'll steal some ideas for my photography website (coming soon!).
