you know, and i know, that i’ve been REALLY good this year. so lets stop this messin’ around and howsabout you bring me some of these treasures on my love list?
i’m not sure i even need to TELL you why i want this brooch by ‘friends with you’?! its just cool! and i have several lapels going unadorned at the current time.
books! books! books! i can never ever get enough. this christmas i’m wishing for:
just when i think i’ve had enough of the stem pattern, along comes a bright yellow bag to prove otherwise. the orla kiely stem sparrow bag really needs to be in my wardrobe, and more often, on my arm.
all you need is love. in pin brooch form! a souvenir brooch from gemma’s bright signs show is just what i need to keep my OTHER lapel cozy.
and now my son is too big for blocks i suppose i have to just call these alexander girard blocks an executive desk toy? better become an executive quick smart!!
so thats just about it for me, santa. oh and if you could just go ahead and drop in a couple of airfares to new york via tokyo that’d be greeeaaaaat.
i’m moving into my studio soon (just as soon as i’m done painting it) so to make it a little easier, i’m clearing out some stock – literally lightening the load. for a limited time there is 20% off everything in the draw! pilgrim store. get in FAST because a) i never have sales and b) its LIMITED TIME ONLY. also, buy buying my stuff you’re giving me more money to make NEW things. and the new things i have in the works are aaaaaawesome.. but i can’t afford to get them done without your help!
if you can’t spare the cash to buy anything (don’t worry, we can still be friends) at least help me spread the word and lets get the sale shakin’ because i hate packing boxes and moving!
don’t forget the pop up sale starts thursday… that’s TODAY! it runs until saturday 6th 3pm.
you’ll find classic cute kid’s threads by crumb, fab art by dawn tan and madeleine stamer, gorgeous jewellery and accessories by shara lambeth, emily green and betty jo, exceptionally well made dresses by peta pledger, and of course the pin up photobooth helen mclean is hosting!
unfortunately being sick put me behind, and under a lot of strain, so i have regretfully pulled out, but i can’t wait to visit and shop. see you there?
you might have noticed the link in my sidebar, but if not – HEAR YE! HEAR YE! we’re having a studio sale!

welcome to decorate! pilgrim post. in these posts i put together polyvore rooms inspired by a draw! pilgrim print. this time its the letter Z from my alphabet series.
no one does burnt orange and brown like those folks in the 70s, so above, i took their lead and put together a sophisticate retro space. product information here.
i love challenging myself to come up with fun kid’s spaces, and this room takes some inspiration from camping. thick blankets, a picnic table for drawing and that fun log fire lamp give it some outdoorsy cheek. and mess is always allowed in rustic rooms, of course! keep that tower of books coming! product information here.
this autumnal room mixes up the colors and textures of food, and leather with a big pop of color from the wall hanging, and the mixed glass ornaments. settle in here on a crisp autumn evening for a fondue supper! product information here.
june first?! JUNE FIRST?! what?!
ahem. has anyone seen the first half of my 2011? apparently its gone. that means i’ve been meaning to share these photos with you for six months. and so, quickly, before i embark on my adventure to japan i thought i’d tell you about my new favorite fascinating place in LA. MONA: the museum of neon art.
MONA was born in 1981, to neon artists richard jenkins and lili lakich, and the current collection is an amazing mix of contemporary neon art and vintage neon signage.
i read about the museum at some point prior to traveling, and it aroused my curiosity (as such KrazyKrap tends to do.. i’m not so good at visiting the tourist traps) but i wasn’t entirely sure what to expect – aside from neon. what i found was a completely fascinating space filled with completely fascinating works! and the most fabulous part: the kiddo loved it because he was ALLOWED TO TOUCH! in a gallery! can you imagine?
the various artworks and vintage pieces are arranged around the spacious old setting (i’m both excited and sad they’re moving to glendale – the current location in the falsely-enticing ‘toy district’ is crumbly and cool!) giving it a gallery-meets-junk-yard vibe that really encourages you to get close and appreciate it all.
from the vintage goodness…
… to the contemporary fun.
and did i mention the thrilling sound of the humming neon and zapping artworks? it creates a really exciting atmosphere! so if you’re in LA, and you like some kooky tourism, duck in to the humming dimness of MONA and tell me what you think of it. next visit i’m hoping to catch one of their night tours of classic neon signs still in action.
the end of this week marks the first anniversary of draw! pilgrim officially selling on etsy, so i’m ‘as seen’ing myself!
