Mosey on over to Hella Holga if you have a chance and keep up with my adventures.


Beautiful Book Week

A thought transfixed me: for the first time in my life I saw the truth as it is set into song by so many poets, proclaimed as the final wisdom by so many thinkers. The truth — that love is the ultimate and the highest goal to which man can aspire. Then I grasped the meaning of the greatest secret that human poetry and human thought and belief have to impart: The salvation of man is through love and in love. I understood how a man who has nothing left in this world still may know bliss, be it only for a brief moment, in the contemplation of his beloved. In a position of utter desolation, when man cannot express himself in positive action, when his only achievement may consist in enduring his sufferings in the right way — an honorable way — in such a position man can, through loving contemplation of the image he carries of his beloved, achieve fulfillment. For the first time in my life I was able to understand the meaning of the words, "The angels are lost in perpetual contemplation of an infinite glory."

New Holga Pics

Prints are on sale at the shop and at the etsy spot.



Check out the newest hometown addition at the shop: Alula Clothing. These ladies have been a pleasure to work with. Their eye for design and color is incredible.



Welcome New Peeps!

I'm so happy to welcome Regina Chang and her Fine Accessories and Blackbird Fashion to the shop.

Regina makes the most incredible necklaces and earrings. I am so in love with her designs, it's hard for me to resist snapping them all up for myself!

Clarity Miller over at Blackbird Fashion creates cute clothes from size small to 2XL, a refreshing change of pace from the dinky boutique sizing that abounds in the fashion world. Right now I just have her skirts up, but will be adding other items soon.

Holga Pics

The mister and I went to Eastern Washington last weekend and I snapped a few good pics with the Holga. I've discovered this camera has an unfortunate light leak in the upper right hand corner, so I'm going to have to perform some surgery on the little guy that involves black tape and black paper. We'll see if my hands are steady enough!
