Justin Townes Earle has become an Americana darling, combining old-school country and modern acoustic folk. I'm eager to snag some tickets to his show at the Showbox in Seattle for October. Check out his latest debut, the video for "Slippin' and Slidin'" from his Harlem River Blues CD.
I recently completed The Pioneer Woman, Ree Drummond's, memoir, Black Heels to Tractor Wheels. Picture Green Acres and you've got the gist of it. Expect a saccharine sweet courtship, sprinkled with heart ache and humor. Consider this book when next you need a beach read.
Kate Spade has teamed up with Poppy King (the lipstick queen)to create a limited edition capsule collection of lipstick-gloss hybrids debuting in the fall. The sheer, super-moisturizing lipsticks will be available in Pop Art Pink, Fuchsia Fete, Bashful Blush, and Adventurous Red. Cute and clever, as always.
Needing an additional bookshelf for quite some time, I managed to find just the one at the Salvation Army for $20. It's porportions are just what I had in mind for the space and the wicker along either side gives it a bit of character. Next up, finding the perfect "hermes orange" paint to transform the bookshelf into something more impactful than the plain drab brown it is now. I've heard rumors that Benjamin Moore possesses a comparable hue in their fan deck. Here's hoping color matching won't be necessary for this particular project.
