I have decided Kime Buzzelli's new alias should be Kime Muse-elli because she is so gosh darn creative, talented and inspiring. I am the proud owner of one of her paintings. She owns the magical boutique Show Pony in Echo Park. Her blog The Moldy Doily inspired me to start a blog. I was perusing archives of her precious adorable-faced cat Georgie Boy and he definitely gets a few tribute photos on my cat loving blog. I also discovered one not-so-strange coincidence -- I bought a silky Manoush ruffled cat dress last year at the Manoush sample sale -- and it turns out that very dress was inspired by the precious Georgie Boy.
Kime's dress above and my dress pictured below. Looks like I got the ruffle collar version.
Oh yeah so she was tagged by a blogger to reveal 6 quirky things about herself. And now I will do that, too, as I have been tagged. But I may not tag other bloggers because I don't know enough of them yet.
1. I once read in Cat Fancy about a Russian Cat Theatre Group who performs with live cats. I was on a camping trip at the time. As soon as I got home from the trip, I checked their website, sped to the Wilshire Ebell Theatre as the show was starting in 10 minutes on that very day, got a free "donated" $60 3rd row seat ticket, and tried not to pee my pants as I watched this wonderful Cat Theatre in pure delight. That is the abridged story, I am going to devote a whole post to that soon.
2. I love pizza.
3. I put one foot up on the sink while I brush my teeth.
4. I am obsessed with The Madonna Inn and would go there every weekend if I could.
5. My animal totems are a wolf and a roadrunner. Surprisingly not a cat.
6. Luc called me a soccer mom when I came back from a power walk and told him about my Oprah Soul Series podcast.
I have a thing for mixing crazy patterns and collectibles. I also like minimalism. So my random array of favorite things is kept in my room. I think I could improve the display of it all. These 2 bedrooms = awesome. I love the dense mix of colorful patterns, the book shelves, the wallpaper.. and especially the red tapestry bedspread. The bedroom makeover process has officially begun. The "Eclectic Bazaar" Room is from Terence Conran's House Book from 1970, and the "guest room" is from Wary Meyers design duo's fun vintage-inspired home in Maine.
I found pictures of this church while I was searching for Verner Panton Interiors to start my Living Cat Museum moodboard. I would love to theoretically get married at St. Bartholomew's in Eastern Bohemia, but Russia did not make our list for a destination wedding, nor did I plan to have a ceremony in a church. Too bad "Join us in a celebration of our marriage in Eastern Bohemia" sounds awesome.
More information from Marcus Fairs at dezeen.com :
Czech designer Maxim Velcovsky has redesigned the interior of a church in Eastern Bohemia, using customised design classics, rugs and chandeliers. Working with designer Jakub Berdych under the Qubus Studio banner, the interior features Verner Panton chairs customised with a punched crucifix, Persian rugs and chandeliers of rough-cut crystal.
“The central nave has been stripped of dull repaints and left totally exposed so that visitors can watch the course of history on fragments and details on the wall.
“Illuminated by chandeliers adorned with pressed and roughly cut crystal, the bare space is dominated by an “army” of legendary chairs designed by Verner Panton with one crucial detail added – a Christian cross carved through the back of the chair.
