WW72: PIMMS, APRIL SMITH AND THE DARK KNIGHT(ish)

Hey y'all.
This is a busy week...so I am just gonna get to it!
5 things I LOVE this week!!

1.) This drink.......that is still NAMELESS - that my sister made me this past weekend!!! The last drink she made - we called "Patty's practically-perfect Party Punch"....... BUT this one is BETTER!!! It is ginger-licious!!!!!!!!!!

RECIPE: (exact measurements to be determined by YOU!)
-Pimms (English booze that has a ginger-y taste)
-Ginger ale
-Sprite
- splash of lime (or lemon)
-garnish with cucumber slices

My nephew insisted we get the "Jesus" shot glass in the shot.
Yes......Jesus makes the drinks at my sister's house!!!
2.) April Smith and the Great Picture Show. I love the sound of this group!!!!! LOVE IT!!! I especially love the album "Songs for Sinking Ship". I love this album! A LOT!

Here is a GREAT SONG:


LOVE THIS ONE TOO!!!

Go and check her/them out!!!!!

3.) I LOVE this sexy retro styled reproduction furniture. Yes...a little house-porn today from 'Room and Board'!!! here are a few of the things I NEEEEEEED:



YUM!!!!!!! (thanks Cindy for this one!!)

4.) Part mural, part sculpture ALL AMAZING!!! Ran Hwang who uses thousands of components including pins, buttons and beads to create these enormous wall-sized images. She says:


I create large icons such as a Buddha or a traditional vase, using materials from the fashion industry. The process of building large installations are time consuming and repetitive and it requires manual effort which provides a form of self-meditation. I hammer thousands of pins into a wall like a monk who, facing the wall, practices Zen.








Starting July 26th Hwang will be exhibiting with Leila Heller Gallery at Art Southampton, featuring one of her newest works, Healing Blossoms (above). The 27-foot long piece is made from paper buttons, beads and sequins that have been gently hammered into 7 large panels. All imagery courtesy Leila Heller Gallery. (via this is colossal

5.)  THIS MADE ME LAUGH!!!

This THRILLING trailer really makes me want to see this movie!!!
