Wandering around the Haight San Fransisco I came across a real gem of a store, now I'm not saying that when I walked in there I was not creeped the hell out, because I was. It was a curious little shop half flower market half vintage jewellery/ taxidermy. I went in to have a look as I saw some bird skulls in the window and I am fascinated by animals, by anatomy by how beautiful creatures are, be them dead or alive. So yes I wandered into this tiny store to take a look. I was mesmerized. Some things are a bit spooky but the way they are used is so clever, so unusual and unique. I absolutely love this tooth ring. Take a look for yourselves on their online store http://www.lovedtodeath.net/
I've just come back from San Fransisico, a place that is absolutely amazing ! For me it has a spookey feeling to it. I guess the beautiful buildings and scenery remind me of some spookey films "Interview with a vampire", "The birds" or "Beetlejuice" and as I went in February the weather was similar to a hazy summers day in London, obviously the air was alot fresher. San Fransisco was so relaxed it just reminded me of being a kid without responibilities. We ate lots of pizza where a slice was as big as a whole pizza at home, tacos and in and out burger. We watched the fat sea lions laze in the sun. Met some of the nicest people, and some of the oddest. Went to cool art shows saw mike Giant and David Choe's work. Hung out with my good friend Holly and her cool friends, collected sand dollars and cherry blossoms and ofcourse saw loads of tiny dogs. I had an amazing time !
