lust, called Block Shop

 Hi Everyone!

This weekend, all weekend, is the wonderful, incredible, FREE concert series right next door to my house:

This is one of the few times a year when living out on the fog side of town has its major perks; I can walk to the stages in just minutes, meaning I get to use my own bathroom between sets and cold beers. Awesomesauce.

All of that is to say, I will not be blogging this weekend. I intend to be outside, enjoying the music and a beverage or four, and maybe even sprawled out on a blanket in the sun, if it stays with us. It's finally October here, our warmest month of the year in San Francisco, a month were you don't necessarily have to carry a sweater and scarf with you everywhere. It is what we affectionately call "our summer."

And speaking of scarves - since I won't be updating you as promised with any of my own work (and getting none of my own work done this weekend) I thought I'd at least leave you with something beautiful to look at.  Meet my newest lustful obsession, the perfect thing for a San Franciscan to pine for, the exquisitely beautiful scarves of Block Shop.

Designed by sisters Lily and Hopie Stockman, Block Shop scarves are printed by hand in Bagru. And wow, does looking at their photo gallery make me miss being in India. While we're talking wishlist type things, I'm just going to throw it out there that returning to India is high on my wishlist. In a dream world, my successful studying of vipassana meditation will lead me back to India to spend some silent meditation time there. I'm thinking the mountain regions this time.

I like to dream big.

In the meantime, I'm going to live vicariously through the beautiful images on Block Shop's site, and save my pennies waiting patiently until my absolute favorite comes back in stock. 

How gorgeous is that? Truly.

So enjoy soaking up the gorgeous world of Block Shop while I'm off enjoying some hardly strictly bluegrass... and I'll see you next week, yes?

    Wow! The scarves are beautiful. I'm with you on the herringbone one - but I kind of like that green and tan one in the top picture. Just my colors! I've never been to India, but I imagine it as a sea of color and scents and spices. (that's probably a typical western cliche) I hope you do get to go back one of these days. OFr that matter - I hope I get to go too!
