How can I be a designer and be so unskilled in geometry? This pic of the Brooklyn bridge (taken as I whizzed acrost it) really makes a person think. Look at all those lines...look at that arrangement of geometric entities in space. I couldn't map it out for you in math-language, but I could eyeball its elements and come up with a really wicked handbag based on the visual themes therein.

NYC Day One: Renegade Craft Fair Brooklyn!

Alright, for those of you who have never heard of the Renegade Craft Fair, here is your clue! Renegade Craft Fair is an enormous indie craft market that happens in three different cities, Brooklyn, Chicago, and San Francisco. It's a giant cornucopia of indie handmades by talented artisans and artists. I went to the Brooklyn Renegade, obviously, and I was NOT disappointed. There were something around 150 vendors, and a delicious vegan ice cream stand, DJ's...good times! I didn't even care that it was 100 degrees out. Okay, actually I did care that it was that hot, but it meant that I got to buy a gorgeously made cotton skirt that I shall post in a later post :) My jeans were just NOT the thing to be wearing in that heat!

I had the good fortune to run into a handful of New England area vendors that I know, some who were there selling and some who, like me, were there gawking and shopping. Adam Yothers of Boston's Dyslexic Press was there. His subversive mix of t-shirts and sarcasm fit right in, lol:

Presenting....Michael Lewis

Michael Lewis is a painter I couldn't be more delighted to have stumbled upon. His birds, even the tiny ones, have got more personality than most people I know (and I know a lot of great people!). A variety of them are perched here at the Speakeasy, come and pay them a visit...and visit the artists online home here:

Offbeat Bride!

In honor of my bridal customers, who make up a huge portion of my customer base, I offer this: The Offbeat Bride.

I love this site. It is a love letter to every girl who thought weddings should be fun, and creative, and a little, well, off-beat. It's not for everyone, but if it's for's PERFECT! Have fun, and make sure to check out the Wedding Porn section. It is nothing relating to actual porn, and everything relating to oogling other people's weddings...
