After a ridiculously long hiatus, I’m happy to announce that Big Daddy Seashell is again open for business!!! I can’t wait to post in the coming weeks all the wonderful things I’ve been inspired by, loved, hated & experienced since I last posted over a YEAR ago. I hope I haven’t alienated all my readers by my lack of new material & I hope you all will enjoy what’s to come!
The Kinks – Juke Box Music
I am extremely thankful that my dear friend Darby reminded me about how AWESOME this song is!
Flight of the Conchords – Sugar Lumps
Only the best new song this year….so far. And the best video. I don’t think Bret & Jemaine have ever looked hotter. Am I right ladies?!
I hope you all haven’t missed me too much. I have been RIDICULOUSLY busy for too long. Anyhoo, I couldn’t resist posting these gorgeous photos I saw today while perusing this article by Michael Pollan for the New York Times Magazine. They were all taken by Erwan Frotin for the New York Times. I would love any of these framed in my dream kitchen someday:
On a side note, if you haven’t read “The Omnivores Delimma” by Michael Pollan, you should. It is a wonderful and inspiring book.
Once again, I apologize for my long absence. We went on a little trip to Door County, Wisconsin & have spent the rest of the time engrossed in our new little entertainment purchase – Mad Men. We just finished season one last night & I CANNOT WAIT for the season 2 premiere next weekend. Everything about this show is fabulous; the acting, direction, casting and writing are all superb. But what has really been blowing me away is the spectacular set design, props & stunning costumes:
I can’t get over this show. I almost want to start watching it right away again. Maybe this time I won’t interrupt every two minutes by squealing over lamps, wall hangings, office equipment, phones, dresses, shoes, & headboards.
I LOVE that headboard. It almost makes me want to be a 1960’s era housewife. ALMOST. I think I’d miss the women’s liberation & the Diet Mountain Dew way too much. Have a great day & go watch Mad Men right now!!!!
