A really beautiful video featuring the soft croons of Charlotte Gainsbourg (& Beck. le sighh). You might want to watch it twice, just so you dont miss anything. It’s suiting for the odd pairing of warm Southern California heat and Thanksgiving holiday.

Today I purchased some Christmas gifts and other lovely treasures (Including a necklace strung with 12 tiny daggers) from Blue Windows. I worked there for 5.5 years, and I still cant get enough. If you ever happen to be in Long Beach, I highly recommend you take a gander inside. Or… you could just check them out in the December issue of Sunset magazine!!

It’s nice to be away from the daily grind and be inspired by the familiar, yet ever-changing place I call “home.”
