Holy places are dark places. It is life and strength, not knowledge and words, that we get in them. Holy wisdom is not clear and thin like water, but thick and dark like blood.
Salvaged decor adds rustic charm to renovated home
With a penchant for DIY projects and an eye for salvaged items, one interior designer is showing homeowners how to take new spaces and fill them with history.
carrie hammer is awesome. in addition to creating clothing for real women, the designer began casting real women for her runway shows; fall 2014 featured danielle sheypuk, winner of ms. wheelchair new york 2012, who became the very first wheelchair-bound model to grace the runway. to say that danielle looked absolutely stunning would be an understatement. this season, hammer did it again by inviting karen g. crespo, a nurse practitioner and bacterial meningitis survivor (she lost all four of her limbs to the disease), to do the same. crespo felt inspired to contact the designer after seeing last season’s show. then, having a delivery of $100k worth of prosthetic limbs stolen from her doorstep, she contacted the designer, who worked with a manufacturer to create a new set of prosthetics. some people suck but others are awesome and this involvement of women of all types is incredibly inspiring.
