Rainy Day Links

The rain has foiled my Tuesday plan. I was so exicted about the going to the fair. While it may be a little red, what could be more North Carolina than pig races, fried Coke, hush puppies and the state's largest pumpkin? Here are some links to get you through this yucky, rainy day.

Hoping for Happy Accidents

Jesus Camp
Forget the Grudge. This is the scariest movie of the year. They are building an army.

Look Book
Worth bookmarking. Every week they interview someone on the street about their style and their life. I love the interview with two precocious kids.

Do you play sports? JEZIAH: I like to play football. The Giants are my favorite, and the Deadskins.
The Redskins? I used to think it was called that, but it’s called the Deadskins.

Happy Tuesday. xx

new HL show

The HL Roaming Gallery, a biannual exhibit of Raleigh artists, is resurfacing in a new space this November. New work by Tracy Spencer, Andy Heymann, Jeremy Hauch, Sean Vance, Dimitri Gudgenov, Mollie Earls, and myself will be on display at 20 E. Hargett Street, Downtown Raleigh, in the Goodman Building (at the corner of Hargett and Wilmington Streets).

Opening Reception November 3rd from 6pm to 11pm.
Second Reception November 17th, 6pm to 11pm.

Above is a shot of the space we are using and it worth seeing just for the interiors. I will be using the mannaquins shown for an installation that I am very excited about. I don't think they will mind so much.

I don't think they have had any attention in a while.

I just dropped off a box of very leafy jewelry with Breigh at Revolver this afternoon. If you haven't been to Revolver it is on Fairview Road in Raleigh's Five Points. Vintage belts, Prada shoes, Twinkle sweaters, a million jeans and k. talis jewelry are all in one place. The Morrison earrings (top) have tiny vintage gold leaves for fall. The new Charmed, I'm Sure necklace (below) have these great vintage enamel leaves. I bought them with something totally different in mind but they were way too big. So here they are. The Morrison earrings are $26 and the necklaces are $38.

This silkscreened poster from Tracy Jenkins at village is getting tons of press right now. Her first edition of the print was featured in Domino and Elle Decor in designer Jessie Randall's chic Brooklyn apartment. At $10 the at edition has sold out , however she has come out with a second edition in two colorways. The pink one really needs to come home with me. After hunting down this print I decided that having one wall in my apartment decorated may not cut it. Prints are a really affordable way to bring some funk in the house. Here are some affordable pieces I've found on etsy:
