We are hoping we can screen this Vivienne Westwood documentary next Spring before the 10th Annual Clothing Swap!!! Stay tuned and fingers crossed.

My bestie cousin, Sarah, introduced me to Yacht Rock. It’s lots of Steely Dan, George Benson, and Doobie Brothers type stuff and I’m totally obsessed.

Beware of this Instagram account. Once you see it you will want to get bangs. I did.

I’m curious about Port City. I want to buy this hat for my son for X-mas.

Do you follow Erin Little on Instagram? She was asked to photograph the home of a woman who was in her 90s. The woman passed away and her family wanted photos of the house before it was emptied and sold. Such a beautiful and precious place.

My friend posted this on Facebook — ” I just want an organic cotton tampon with a cardboard applicator wrapped in paper – I just don’t understand why this is so difficult to find! After 48 comments she got the answer !!!

Star Island is a great place to go for the day. My sister and I, and my two boys are going tomorrow. We are packing a lunch and planning to go for a swim.

TeePearls are necklaces made from upcycled t-shirts. Handmade in Somerville, MA. Cute.

Sometimes I daydream about moving to Rockland, Maine. I dream of working at the art museum or the library. I could live here.

Next month we have our first meeting to start planning the next Project Upcycle which will take place in March 2019. Designers, start working on your portfolios!

Anna Hepler

I wish I’d seen this Anna Hepler show at the Portland Museum of Art back in 2010.

Love her work, her style, her process. So inspiring.
Especially love the Double Hung wire sculpture from this 2017 exhibition. Cheeky.

It makes me think of Ruth Asawa’s work. There is a new book out soon about Ruth Asawa. We have it on order at the Portsmouth Public Library. You can place a hold on it here.

I was reminded of Anna Hepler’s work via a post on Remodelista about The Soot House on Spruce Head Island in Maine. Follow the links to a post about the 1754 Cape to see Hepler’s work in the wild.
