you start a book
and want to read straight to it
but you have to go to sleep / to work.

this happened to me last night.
i'm halfway through 'certain american states' and don't want to stop reading it !

i've discovered catherine lacey a few weeks ago 
- thanks to literary hub (my new favorite website).
her two previous books are now on my reading lists too.

some interviews on the creative independant - here // 
and on hazlitt there //

happy birthday homecollection :)

i can't believe this blog is turning 10

i still remember this summer 2008 
- bored as hell in south of france.
i wouldn't have imagined still be here 10 years after. 
but i still love this place.
i don't really know who comes here, but i don't mind.
blogs have slowly been replaced by instagram - i miss so many of them...
and i'm nostalgic of the great era, but, anyway.
thanks to this space i've met some new friends - IRL or not.
i've discovered so many beautiful things, 
been inspired by other posts, people...

yay it's been a nice ride
long live homecollection !

maira kalman's home

looking inside other people's homes is one of my favorite pastimes
and 'and the pursuit of happiness' is one of my favorite books
so, sneaking inside maira kalman's apartment was a real pleasure :)
thank you the cut !

day trip

i miss the sea so much since i came back from south...
on friday afternoon i bought a last minute ticket train for a day-trip to dunkerque,
and that's the best idea i've had !
a visit to le FRAC, long walks in malo,
picnic on the beach (still not recovering from the delicious but way too big couque suisse !),
and the afternoon spent laying down on the beach -- a thing i used to hate but times change..!
a good day )
