wabi sabi blogger girls and origami

Here is the start of a small collection, inspired by the fashion blogger girls, many of whom exhibit the subtlety and reserve that I associate with wabi sabi. If you don’t know them already, let me introduce you!
Kate, of All this Happiness, has a beautiful eye for vintage and textures and patterns and all that good stuff.
This girl, author of Park and Cube… I love her hair, her lack of makeup, her quietness.


Natalia, of Fashion Rubies. This picture is so old-fashioned and romantic.

This girl, author of Ringo have a Banana, is so playful and cheery with her outfits and props. I want more people who don’t take themselves too seriously!


Elenita’s blog, My Window, is written both in Norwegian and English. I wish I were bilingual.

Anyways, I just saw Coraline, and was devastated by how sad and poignant and fragile it all was. Robert J. Lang constructed the dragonflies, which my brother probably will really appreciate. His origami work is amazing, see him here:

Shuki Galen Kato

Dragonflies remind me of mayflies, they only live for a day, to mate and to die. And then I’m reminded of Cicadas, which stay in pupae form for 17 years only to live for a few weeks.

How admirable!
to see lightening and not think
life is fleeting.
