10 Things I ♥ in July

10 Things I love in July | Hedgefairy

  1. The beautiful Moss Embroidery by Emma Mattson. If you take a look at her portfolio
  2. Journey. I wanted to play this game ever since I first heard the calm and meditative soundtrack and now I finally did (thanks to Rus and his PS). It’s so beautiful and etheral. You can’t really lose, you can’t really win and co-operating with the other person you might meet during each level by chance and without verbal communication is encouraged but not necessary. I love the world thatgamecompany created there, full of floating strips of fabric and symbols and wonderous flights through ancient, sand-covered ruins. And dune surfing, because I love dune surfing.
  3. Erin Greenough’s Stickers on Etsy. While some of her her beautifully crafted drawings are slightly disturbing I really love this scissors print and these “Bag of Bones” stickers. You’ll aways get me with stickers (especially ones I can slap onto my various technical devices).
  4. Don’t ask me why but I can’t get Kate Bush’s Wuthering Heights out of my head anymore. She’s so otherworldly, so completely out of the ordinary.
  5. This Apartment Tour of a small flat right under the roof. I couldn’t live so minimalistically but I sure admire it when people do. Look here for even more pictures!
  6. The Costume Designs of Dustin J. Panzino. They are so very froudian and fae!
  7. The Resin Masks created by Aisha Voya. Aren’t they amazing? I think I’m particularly in love with the owl skull mask because of those goggle-like bone structures around the eyes and the short beak.
  8. Lost Lust Supply‘s Enamel Pins. Yet another Etsy shop with wonderful little things, Lost Lust Supply mainly deals in enamel pins – a mainstream trend that I could actually get into. It’s really hard to play favourites here but while this slingshot is ingenious (I would never have thought of the chain part, that’s so clever!) it has to be between the Nightfall Fawn and the Whale Boat. Aren’t they delightful? I also had to think of Polly when I saw this mushroom lover’s pin.
  9. GLOW on Netflix. Glorious Ladies Of Wrestling is a show set in the 80s at their worst – big hair, aerobics classes, sleazy old guys with pornstaches. It starrs Allison Brie (of Mad Men and, much more important, Community fame) as an aspiring actress, and wow, I could never have imagined finding anyone played by this woman so very unpleasant and annoying. Why do I love the series anyway, you ask? Because the cast of secondary characters is amazing and fun, because the topic is feminist and weird enough to draw me in and because I feel inexplicably drawn to the 80s aesthetics lately (and I kind of crave Sheila’s strange wolf Goth outfits). If you happen to have a netflix account near you, go and give it a try!
  10. Writing and drawing with Gold on Dark. Gel pens had lost their lustre for me for the last ten years or so but the magic of shimmering colours on dark paper has come back lately. It might be a small thing, but it makes me happy.

  1. AHHHH THANK YOU for posting the Lost Lust Supply links, I had seen a picture of the nightfall fawns somewhere and fell in love with them but couldn’t find where they were from!

Any thoughts?
