five installment series on new awesome inspirations, for the remaining days of summer. One to come each week. Starting NOW. I hope you enjoy them and share some of your very own.
Book of the week:
Klee Wyck by Emily Carr
In her seventies, bed-ridden and ill, the iconic Canadian painter turned to writing, as a means to continue creative expression. Klee Wyck chronicles Carr's travels among Canada's First Nations in short, impressionistic sketches, that are reminiscent of her paintings, both in their honesty and poignancy.
Blog of the week:
The awesomely inspiring Anna Allen shares her thoughts on such varied topics, as food, fashion, her work as a seamstress and her hobby of historical re-enactment. She also gives tips for baking, braids and how to make vintage swimming costumes out of brand new tops. Pretty darn cool, in my humble opinion.
