i laugh a little inside sometimes when people tell me they "just like natural colors". i think i get what they mean (and I say it sometimes, too) but i also think we tend to have a pretty narrow stereotype of what "natural colors" are. it doesn't only mean beige and calm. i like natural colors, too. :)
and then it really starts to get crazy...
Igneous rocks formed from lava flows of the Archaean era (>2,700 million years ago) are often found to contain disequilibrium-textured crystals characterized by spherulitic, branching or dendritic morphologies that occur in layers near the flow surface.
i think i feel a series coming on...
It's so nice to finally have a minute to post this wedding from earlier this year. It was pretty magical...

She's mad but she's magic.
There's no lie in her fire.

It's this beautiful magic that poofs out of the dirt. It's that thrill of making something beautiful from what's around you... If I had it all my way I'd make everything only from natural materials. And I love that it's all images of ordinary materials and ordinary life. I think making an exceptionally beautiful kitchen sink is every bit as important as an exceptionally beautiful wedding dress.
