This morning I’d like to share Charlotte Gainsbourg‘s video for the title track from her recently released EP, Terrible Angels. Although the album was produced by Beck, the track falls surprisingly in the dance-pop-stomper category. Nevertheless, it’s a fun ride, and the video features the delightfully disheveled Charlotte dancing about a parking garage with an army of doppelgangers. As anyone who has ever watched Alias knows, however, bad things always happen in parking garages.
Fall is officially here and the rain is makings its return to Seattle. This has triggered an instinctual response in me to don cozy sweaters and break out my knitting. I’ve had my eye on this adorable cable knit sweater from Madewell.
The change in season also has us planning our Winter getaway. This weekend we purchased tickets to Vietnam! Eeee! We will be traveling through Vietnam to Cambodia, intent on Angkor Wat and our very own island beach. Depending on how kind the travel gods are to us, we may even make it to Thailand as well. Naturally I am excitedly searching out hidden treasures and independent hostelry. I’d love to know if anyone has suggestions for either specific places in one of the three countries or travel sites you like. My searching did bring me this amazing lodge in Patagonia, to file away for the next trip.
Speaking of beaches, I was amazed to see these images of sand from artist and scientist, Gary Greenberg. The microscopic images show just how incredible that seemingly uniform substance is.

One of my favorite parts of travel in learning new things. Though this isn’t from Southeast Asia, but rather Japan, have you seen the amazing art of cloth folding called Furoshiki? Have a look at this useful list of techniques. You can make everything from grocery bags, to wine bottle art and hair wraps.
Have a lovely week my dears!
