Whoa... Giles Belley Organic Factory

Ok. So I know I tend to disappear and then promise to update and then never. But this stopped me in my tracks. Before I makes excuses I must share.

Giles Belley is a French designer making things to put in your home that are--get this-- made of agricultural waste.  Not only are they beautiful, but functional and such a creative way to recycle. Sleek modern planters and fragrance diffusers are among the pictured designs. And how beautiful are the accompanying drawings?

It's things like this that make me wish I had studied Industrial Design or Art.  It's true, I must start making some work before my soul begins to shrivel up.

It's been awhile.

A lot has happened in the past few months. Something like this:

I lov--lived on a farm for two and a half months. Met my match. Walked down the aisle as a maid of honor. Sorted, packed and boxed up almost all of my material possessions. Hugged my beloved parents good-bye and flew 6,000 miles across the Pacific to embark on this thing we call life.

And here I am. Gainfully employed full time, getting settled in our still empty house at the back of a valley.

Oh, did I forget to mention... I've moved to Hawai'i.

More soon.
