Anarchy on Anarky


The latest installment in my “writing on the wall” series: Finally a copyeditor has arrived on the scene. (Photo by andric via design for mankind.)

Le Divan Fumoir Bohemien


I have a new French blog on the Blogs Abroad roll! It’s called Le Divan Fumoir Bohemien. And it’s fantastique. (Thank you to What Possessed Me for the find.) Photo by Tim Walker via Le Divan… QUESTION: What would this girl have on her bookshelf (besides herself, of course!)? Any ideas?

World, Jewel-Box Sized


The vanilla and blue world of Emilie79*, as captured through her various Polariod cameras. From her Flickr set. Haunting. Lovely.

For Lennie


I think about one of my former editors so often these days. She left the rat race to study pastry making at an incredibly prestigious baking school in Paris. She now works as a pastry chef at the sweetest little restaurant on the edge of the Arroyo Seco. She creates the most divine cakes, breads […]

Late Winter Light


The weather was beautiful here today, balmy with wispy clouds. I decided to get out of my office and get some air. It was so lovely to watch the sun dip into the western sky from my spot (sitting on an old palm tree stump at Pasadena’s Central Park). Here are a few of the […]

New Etsy Crush


I’m quite smitten by D. Kim’s wry illustrations on Etsy. Above: A jumble of glass lanterns, a new take on the silhouette and subway entrances. (I need directions to the station that takes me many moons away!) Kim is a Brooklyn artist, with humor, talent and an edge. Bravo.

Girl, Interrupted


It’s very hard not to be fascinated with Edie Sedgwick, Warhol’s muse. Here’s a fantastic video by the Velvet Underground — found by Eyemurmur on YouTube — that captures the glamour and tragedy of Sedgwick’s life. (She died much too young of an overdose). The clip is set to the song “After Hours,” written by […]

White. It’s the New Black!


Hello everyone. It’s very late here but I’m wide awake. They were serving chocolate martinis and trays of Godiva bonbons at the Elton John party. I’ve had way too much sugar. And now I’m on the Internet and watching Oscar recaps on TV. So, what did you think of the Oscar fashions? The colors were […]

Kate’s Moment?


I loved Kate Winslet as Marianne Dashwood in Sense and Sensibility and she was brilliant as Clementine in the Eternal Sunlight of the Spotless Mind. (It was horrible the way people criticized her for gaining a few pounds after Titanic.) She looks beautiful (and charming while crying during acceptance speeches.) Can’t wait to see how […]

J Lo in Tulle


I love this photo of Jennifer Lopez wearing the now iconic sequin and tulle Oscar de la Renta dress. I cut this out of a magazine awhile back. Of course now I can’t remember where it appeared. (Do you know!? Vogue, perhaps). It’s gorgeous! Would you wear a short dress like this to formal event? […]

The Writing on the Wall


This is becoming an ongoing series here at the muse:  pictures of love notes written on walls!  Here’s the latest from my Internet perusing…found on Le Love. (My earlier post: Time and Love.)

Got Books?


What are you reading these days? (Illustration via Lolita.)

Lucky Day


What kind of book do you want to write? From Annabelle, of My Life…In To Do Lists, in Australia: “Haha I love it! I’d love to write a memoir of my life at about 60 years of age, I hope to have lived a lot by then!” From Sara, of One Long Road,  in Cairo: […]

Dancing in the Light


This photo by Chris Nicholls for the New York City Ballet made my heart leap. So beautiful! (I so love the ballet…) See the full photo here. I imagine her dancing to Tchaikovsky. A comment from Charlotte, lovely reader:“More than any other choreographer whoever lived, Balanchine understood that the fascination of ballet was the motion […]

Stars, Unlit


The neon lights from a carnival ride, in sepia. I love this photo, found on We Heart It via the fantastically talented Dyxie.
