My fave arts, creativity and culture links from the past week. From the Princess Bride to why you may not be getting ahead - it's all here.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.

Hey, it's another weekend! How was your week? It's been SURPRISINGLY sunny for days on end here on the west coast. I DO realise that'll be the jinx that brings the 10 months of rain.
Know where I'll be Sunday night? Actually, that'd be Sunday AFTERNOON since it starts at 5pm Pacific Time. Yup, parked in front of the tv with some snacks and wine and the Emmys! It's all about the advertising and promotion of various shows but I still like to watch. And with all the cable show nominees, I'll actually have HEARD of a bunch of the nominees.
Lets get started.
Mandy Patinkin and Homeland. Saw him onstage with Patti Lupone. Smooches. That is all.
Parker Posey coaches actors on their Emmy acceptance speeches.
Who will win and who should win.
Spoiler to myself: I can't even watch this yet - I'm not onto season 4 yet!
And 'cause I'm in the midst of my "catch up" Breaking Bad marathon, 5 reasons to watch.
I'm long past the need for flirting skills but if I did, here's how to do it in a bookstore.
Wanna get more happy in your life? Erin of Art Social has a weekly Thursday link up. She is on FIRE with all sorts of ideas and collaborations. Join in and add your two cents.
And for your creative process, how Obama gets things done.
Yes, the weekend. I'll be putting on my best soccer mom outfit and watching the girl play her first game of the season. We like to think and watch and talk about art and entertainment and creativity over here but we also like to be active. Get that heart pumping. An art opening with the man Saturday night (that we MIGHT trade in for a yoga class and a few drinks instead). <--- if I was a betting man, I'd put my money on this. More Breaking Bad. Always that until we are caught up.
How about you?
