three things!

>>this vase is titled "my friends, 1892". so this was before the time of facebook or cell phones or email inboxes or even picasa photo albums of you and your beloveds. this is one woman's vase that has her 50 best friends autographs on it. how darn cool is this?? i want to recreate this today. [found here]

>> i just adore this quote by gertrude stein [via]:
>> and then this last one, which is so touching to me, a video about artist sophie blackall who has done an entire book on illustrating ads from the craigslist "missed connections" section. i love that she says she loves people and that she loves to capture them. i find it so sweet and touching. and the art is fantastic, with such a great concept!
