Having a holiday weekend allowed me the opportunity to finally flip through my new UPPERCASE Magazine at a nice, leisurely pace. It came last week and I have been itching to really dive in and get lost in the "creative & curious" world that I adore so much. I know I have said this every time I get one of these gems in the mail, but this one is even better! --Gorgeous, gorgeous, gorgeous.... You can actually flip through the magazine here if you would like to take a gander.
As I was enjoying my magazine, I found my mind drifting to friends that I have met via this crazy world wide web (mostly through blogs, twitter, & children's stores). I was noting what articles reminded me of certain people that I communicate with regularly. While these are standout write ups to me as well, I dogeared them with the thought of passing them on. Then I realized it would be nice to just post it for others to enjoy as well.
Debbie Powell -an illustrator on the move - The illustrations reminded me of something that Chantal would like and might end up inspiring some bento lunches in the future.
Table for Two: Molly Wizenberg & Brandon Pettit - My friend Catherine told me about Molly's blog, Orangette over a year ago so she was the first person I thought of. I actually think of Catherine every time I get my UPPERCASE in the mail. I also thought of Robin, who is another foodie blogger who lives in Seattle & can visit this restaurant easier than I can.
The Darlingtonia Moccasin Company - All I had to do is look at the pictures to immediately think of Daria and the beautifully crafted shoes that she makes.
Shoegazing - This article got me thinking about the always stylish and creative Alix. She takes vibrant pictures of herself, documenting her fun fashions & I often admire her "shoegazing" photos in particular.
So here are some highlights of an inspiring magazine & some interesting ladies to boot.
