picnic attire in the mid-60's

I came across these photos of my mother from the mid 1960's and they look like something out of a Kate Spade photoshoot. As I look closely at the details, I am in awe of way they are dressed and the carefulness in each of the settings. And it makes me nostalgic for a period of fashion I never knew. How many of us have posed on the sofa with a friend and her baby -- does it look like this? (sigh)

I adore my old things; especially when they share the same color palette.

Let's Swap

Let's Swap is a brilliant idea and showcase of huge talent. Brainchild of Brooklyn design studio, Hyperkat. Below are some of my faves:

You'll find me frolicking, Katie and Justin Kemerling

Food for Thought, Jason Lynch

Trade Blanket, Craft Svcs. Design Co.

The concept reminds me of the ArtSwap events I've attended and helped organize in the past. Each creator brings a piece of art; the art was then put on display. Drinks, food and conversation were had, and then each artist went home with a new piece of art. Creativity was stirred and everyone always had a really great time. The Artswap concept was started by my dear friend and amazing photographer, Cheryl Zibisky. (I think we're long overdue for the next one; time to start planning!)
