Japan! Culture + Hyper Culture Festival 2/5-2/17

This festival at the Kennedy Center sounds real neat! There will be a variety of theater performances and (many free) music and exhibitions on classic and modern arts and popular culture including Shakespeare, fashion, anime, robots, and even the scarily ubiquitous Harajuku.

Tea Towel Art

marimekko kaiku tea towel

On a recent trip perusing Tabletop in Dupont, my buddy Kata got me obsessed with decorative tea towels. I am moving soon which means new apartment, new decor. You can find this pretty illustrative piece at FinnStyle and other Marimekko designs at Tabletop. Apartment Therapy shows how easily this piece is turned into art, instantly warming your home and heart.

DC Faves: Good Eye

Good Eye is located in sleepy Friendship Heights and is only open Thursdays-Sundays, but it's worth checking out. The furniture is top notch and they get new stuff in every week, though it is on the pricey side of mid-century. But there is many a small, high-quality gift to be found in the nooks and cranies of the store: ridiculous ashtrays, modern ceramics and the odd Marimekko print or two.

p.s. they also have an Ebay shop

p.p.s. if you see it in the window, and love it, make sure you grab it. It will be gone the next time you come around!

Not as awesome as this...

So Scary!!!!!! But season-appropriate I guess, if you're hiking in Nepal.

Do you own one? If so, you could have eBay gold in your hands.

DC Faves: Sticky Fingers

For Breakfast: Vegan McMuffin-type thing and the best chai in foamy.

DC Faves: Second Story Books

Here starts my series on places I love in DC:

Second Story Books is kinda old fashioned, kinda focused on the serious collector and kinda doesn't want to buy your used books, but every time I go in there I am pleasantly surprised. From cheap paperback editions of Anais Nin's finest to these gems I scored recently, they keep it real.

So stoked to find this half-priced.

A gift for a friend...hope she isn't reading this!
