must have books

Fall is my new favorite season. I get giddy for fall weather and fun outdoor activities. Fall is beautiful here in Atlanta. It's still 70+ degrees here! Whoop whoop. (OK ok no more bragging) I'm looking forward to getting into knitting some new projects and getting my nose in some new books. Here are some books I'm putting on my book list right now.

skateboards rock

This weekend I stopped by MODA (Museum of Design Atlanta) to check out the Skate it or Hang It exhibit. It Rocked! I love skateboarding, its a well kept secret of mine. (shhh, don't tell a soul) I love the culture and the art that has come from it. I don't own any decks but I plan on collecting some in the near future.

The Skate it or Hang it show showcases the evolution of skateboard art from 1978 to present day. There were ten legendary artists featured: Steve Olson, Lance Mountain, Jim Phillips, Charlie Owens, Wes Humpston, Michael Sieben, Hense (Alex Brewer), Andy Howell, V. Courtland Johnson and Sean Cliver. Not only did they display awesome decks but they also had full scale graffiti art which made the show real. I have waited a long time to see a show like this. I never use the word "Rad" but it really was.

shop love

I'm so excited about The Shops from Target. I'm always impressed with the way Target re-invents Pop Up shops. The Shops have unique items from bangles to dog toys. I have no self control because I want one of everything. Items are available right now online and inside your local Target stores.

It's no secret that Target is the branding king for new product launches. This product collage was sent as an email blast to their customers. I'm a sucker for a product collage. Yay Target!
