From caftans to Jackson Pollock, from Mad Men to moviemaking - it's my art, culture & creativity links for the week.Read More
My blog has three categories: create, where I photograph, cook, make art and write about the creative process; travel is about my travels, both local and afar; and inspire - photographers, artists, & designers who inspire my work, and interviews with artists, photographers, & creative couples.
Popular blog series include Tovah Cooks where I "made modern" my mother-in=laws 1960's Mad Men era recipes, Creative Couples interviews, fab takes on art & fashion history in Art One Oh One, & Fashion One Oh One, and conversations with Jen Cooper of Classic Play in Talking About Creativity.

It's been a hectic week but a good one. Shorter because of Canadian Thanksgiving last Monday. Hectic because I started BYW Boot Camp taught by Holly Becker of Decor8. We're all about upping our game and keeping the skills sharp over here. Writing a little better, photographing a little better too.
A Victorian take on the tv show the Wire.
Audrey Hepburn had STYLE.
Car-poolers. In Mexico. By photographer Alejandro Cartegena.
I want to see this documentary about mid-century modern architectural photographer Julius Shulman.
The Hollywood sign through the years.
Blair Waldorf on the end of Gossip Girl. Sniff. I'll need to find a new trashy tv show. Preferably set in NYC.
Next week I have another post in my series Photographers Who Inspire. I'm REALLY excited about this one! And stay tuned for a post TOMORROW on Saturday - yes, you read that right - Saturday. Don't get used to it, we need our weekend break.
Speaking of this weekend...Friday night dinner with the family. A little farmers' market action on Saturday while it's still outdoors (the Pacific Northwest rain is almost here - break out the rainboots). Halloween is coming and I have the raw materials to make the girl's costume. And I have some more crocheting to do for the old yarn bombing in the front yard. The next door neighbours want in on the action too. Throw in a little yoga and a LOT of coffee and we're set. How about you?
