Three things I love about my framers at The Framing House
1. They are cheap.
2. They are very helpful and patient with me and all my questions (and how very long it takes me to make up my mind.)
3. They are in Chinatown.
I suppose the drawback is that I can't possibly go get anything framed without running across the street to the bakery for almond cookies. A little taste of buttery heaven!
I hadn't really thought about going to take pictures last week, I was more focused on the pastels I was framing, so these pictures were taken with crazy settings on my iPhone.
And this is where I got my 5.99 replacement slippers (in red of course!)
Love the red lanterns! They always remind me of the incredible cinematography in the film, Raise the Red Lantern, for obvious reasons. Every shot in that film was like a work of art!
This is a great little higher end shop called Realm that is in an old restaurant that opened in 1939. Wish I'd gotten a better shot of the ceiling but it was tough with the lights!
I think I need a neon Buddha. Just saying.
Raise the Red Lantern is an incredibly beautiful movie, visually, but subject-wise it's rough and quite haunting. Gong Li is amazing in it and it was worth seeing, for me, for the visual feast.
Each moment is a place
you've never been.
Hope this week, you are enjoying places you've never been.
Blessings and light to you!
