{viva voce} the good ol' days & ways of 'word of mouth'

hi. my name is kelly and this is my evergrowing collection of things i love. 


contact me

follow me

drop the game.

so, in case you didn't notice - my last post was in mid december, quite some time ago! i spend most of my days juggling either bowie and/or flowers so it's hard to keep up here, dang it - however, if you want to know what i do on a normal basis at least pop over and visit my work at brown paper design

i refuse to let viva voce disappear, so until i can find the time - i will post favorite jams i'm diggin' as of late.

so on that note - give this one a listen.

i'm always coo'ing over fonts, this is def one of them.

it was designed as a display font so it's not recommended for extended texts. it's suitable for headlines and logos that need to pack a quick punch, no?

welcome to the afterlife

damn i love arcade fire - i always have, but even more now. 


it's almost christmas and where have i been.

i don't know - geeze, here - there - and everywhere. plus don't you forget bowie is my real boss.

merry december - it's been lovely hasn't it?!

this is how i imagine myself, it's a great trick.



sharp shooter

i saw this and was immediately drawn to it.

i love how the clothes and colors coincide with the rooms natural elements.

do you think that was purposeful - the insane detail that many would probably just pass over - i see it all, i do.

help - someone please tell me who this fantasic designer is tho...

flower fodder

i'm sure you've come across these images before by photographer kari herer, because i know i've seen them at least a hundred times - but really, can you blame me for posting them again? the sketches are so innocent and approachable and then the floral buds placed ever so gently in their perfect little spots make the image just so.

what a sweet little story they tell.



and this is why

every sigle person says the peony is their favorite flower. just look at these maama-jammas?!
