Covet: Christian Lacroix Necklace

Nothing like a subtle piece of jewelry by one of my favorite designers to brighten up a gloomy rainy day.

Extra Special: Donna Summer




Once upon a time there was an adolescent Wandering Eye with a mouth full of braces and a head full of glamorous dreams including (but not limited to) dancing into the wee hours of the morn under the sparkle of spinning mirrored balls....and even if my poster covered bedroom was a far cry from a glittery NYC club, all I had to do was turn up the volume on Donna Summer's Greatest Hits and I was transported miles away....
it is a sad day in my wandering world.

Wishful Wandering: Chiaroscuro Santa Fe






Time to dust off the invisible jet because I'm high-tailing it to Santa Fe for the new exhibition of work by one of my favorite artists: John Garrett.  These beautiful hanging 'columns' incorporate hundreds of elements from keys and razor blades to vinyl records and toy wood blocks so I can't wait to see them up close and personal.....only thing is......where did I park that plane?
See amazing detail images and read more here.

Distraction: Great Expectations




I have to admit that when I sat down to watch the most recent version of Charles Dickens' classic, Great Expectations, my wandering expectations were far from those of the title....but once the opening credits started to flicker across my television screen, I knew I was in for an eerily beautiful visual treat.  No one can spin a tale like Charlie and even if I found the adult Pip distractingly handsome (wait, what did he just say?) that's a minor complaint for a program that had me utterly engrossed.  These images are from the set of Satis House.....home of Miss Havisham.....who knew decay could look so lovely?  

Read plenty more about the production here.
