never enough mayonnaise

Make yourselves at home, shag carpet lovers.

I decided to turn this blog into the place where I ramble about the 70s as well as share photos of my macramé art. So, funkadelic times ahead.

Let’s dare, shall we?

Earlier today, I saw a picture on Twitter, courtesy of 70s Dinner Party, that delighted me to very core of my being.

The next time I have a couple of friends over, I’m going to have to make something like this. Because it is magnificent.

This is, officially, one of my favorite 70s food ads of all time. Now that I think about it, my other favorite 70s food ad is also a Hellmann’s mayonnaise ad (again courtesy of 70s Dinner Party. You need to buy the book now, by the way).

I will never tire of gazing at this glorious aspic aquarium. Ever.

And remember that polyester is your friend.

Well, lots of things happened between the last time I updated this blog and now. So I’m behind on macramé creation and so on…

But there will be more macramé and the first issue of my diary-style zine this spring.

Please visit the shop to see what’s up for grabs.

Here’s my most recent piece:

Here’s a picture of me wearing another polyester shirt, with groovy gold chains.

And here are more polyester shirts I’ve added to my growing collection (they’re on their way here now).

Also, I have a new turntable setup and vinyl is love.

Have a picture of my kitty enjoying my, I mean his, fab IKEA comforter.

Macramé has a similar soothing effect upon me.

Yesterday, I acquired a small postal scale and a number of other vital items, such as large shipping envelopes, colorful tissue paper…

It’s going to be difficult for me to part with the pieces I lovingly create, but it’s a price I’m willing to pay to spread the joy of macramé wall-hangings (and hopefully, bags; it’s on my list).

Add serenity to your life with macramé!
