scarf shop

i know i just posted about some amazing fall accessories, but how cool are these scarves?!? i am so incredibly in love with all of the different colors Scarfshop has to offer. the scarves themselves come in long + skinny, regular, big, and giant sizes. the giant scarf is a whopping 4' x 9' and bunches up absolutely wonderfully. these scarves are 100% cotton and not very heavy at all...so they're perfect for those days where you develop a slight chill as you're shuffling through the newly fallen leaves to the library. perfect for layering over that one cardigan with all of those funky buttons you love so much. these scarves just seem so very perfect for autumn.

i am a huge fan of postcards. it's obvious from my blog title and it's obvious by the random little things i like to post about. so when i stumbled across these illustrated postcards by Valerie Chua on Anna's blog (one of my favorites, you should definitely check it out) i almost squealed with glee. goodness, aren't they completely marvelous? these illustrations are the epitome of wistful. the girls' unsmiling faces and  muted colors bring about a plaintive aspect to the otherwise gorgeous atmosphere that these postcards create. looking at these collaged portraits, the girls are seemingly begging for their story to be told. but in these cards, i think that part is up to you.

hi! i'm Lena, but you can call me Lulu. i love Frida Kahlo, feminism, art, reading, kitties, and drinking tea. i love the film Amelie and i think that the tiny traveling gnome has stolen my heart. i want to own a bookshop and live above it one day. i get quite passionate about things. i tend to think too much. i'm kind of a hermit.
