LIFE...

Good Monday to you lovelies.
It's been a rather lazy day for me. I messed around with decoupaging again and had fun with the whole juxtaposing of animal heads on human bodies (I'm really into that right now..)

Speaking of, here's a new print that I just bought for my house.



It's called "General Lynx" and it's from a really talented screen print artist named Mark Weaver. I came across his work on fffound and fell in love, totally my style of art. So anyway I've decided to try my hand at that same type of stuff although I'm sure it won't be near that good!

I've been finding a lot of inspiration in the book shown below. It's full of images that over the years were printed in the back of Life Magazine on the Miscellany pages which were designed to close each issue with a good laugh.

Here are some of my favorites from the book...

Aren't they all so cute!

And finally like I promised the item of the day...
Today I chose a lovely men's cardigan sweater (m/l) modeled by my friend Hannah (xs) during a shoot back in February (seems like ages ago). It's a vintage argyle sweater from the 70's that would be perfect for the upcoming fall season. If your interested it will be on my etsy site.

The images from the book are great, thank you for sharing those!
I really like the pictures for the cardigan's etsy listing too. Especially the middle one with the model lying down is quite incredible, it's one of those that I look at and think, wow I want to have taken that... or have such a pic taken of me, I'd settle for that also! :)
