Sky scarves

To help prevent the winter blues, Mav came up with the most amazing project: She photographed the Maine sky each afternoon and printed the photos directly onto silk scarves. So, even during the darkest months, you can "feel the light all around you," she says. "Wear the light!"

Oh my goodness, I'm swooning. Find them all here.

STUNNING!

Blue Penguin said...

Those are so terribly, terribly gorgeous! I saw one on your This & That post (yep, catching up on some reading...) and loved it, then these beauties just sealed it for me. They'd be a little like wearing a polaroid. So subtle and so very different. They remind me a little of the prints an Australian designed, Josh Goot, uses, but more natural and earthy rather than graphic. Love it!

WOW Gold said...

I'd adore just one in an exceptional sunset =) So specific to create a thing away from the moment
When we play the WOW, we need to try get the Cheap Aion Kinah,thst's to say, spend less money, do we have any good way to Buy WOW Gold from trust friends or some way else? When we have that we can play the game becomes more quickly and update the levels more easy.
