Frames! These were ridiculous cheap. I painted them in black spray because the original color didn't please my eyes. Just need to put some beautiful pictures on them and set them on the wall.
I've been looking for a new bag for a while and now this specimen happened to come towards me. It's suitably granny-spiritual which suits me fine.
Buttons! Dressmaker needs always the buttons and I found a bunch of them (all black ;)) The buttons are bloody expensive in the stores so I always try to chase them while visiting flea markets.
Hunger for good books doesn't obviously die even though I'd read a book per day. I've considered for long to read that Patti Smith's Just Kids piece, but somehow I haven't got that to my hands until now. I admire her style a lot and how she dared to jump into the unknown as a young. Most of us choose the easy path or the path that the others assume us to take, but the bravest of us choose the own way to go even though it would mean insecurity and poverty. I adore the people who have an ability to keep their own mind under the pressure.Too many of us are victims of brainwashing. Patti Smith was studying in the university to become a teacher until she decided to interrupt her studies and say goodbye to the pre-written future. She packed her case and decided to leave for New York to become an artist albeit she didn't know how. This is the story of her life and also the story of photographer Robert Mapplethorpe's life who was Patti's best friend till the end of his days. I'm sure I'll re-read this book later.
Smith visited Tampere in last summer but I was too poor to attend her show due to the moving. Now she will arrive in Finland again but this time to Pori which is a black hole to me. I've never been there and I heard that all hotels are already fully booked. So let's see if I manage to go there.
Last night we went to Vastavirta with my beloved to see some punk bands. For an instant I thought to be in London. Some Sid Vicious clone was pogo dancing in front of us and one band sounded like The Clash. Kind of a small time travelling experience.
