From the comments: i got to your website from http://www.wefeelfine.org. i’m not trying to make you feel bad. If you check out wefeelfine, you’ll see that they scour the web looking for emotions and then display them back. Mumur (just a listing of ...

niki de saint phalle

niki de phalle (sculpture) I am so excited. I am going to get to see the outside exhibit’s niki in the garden (links are at the bottom).I learned about niki de phalle because there was a fragrance inspired by her (I think probably from the 60s). Anyhow, I worked as a fragrance counter person in college (yeah, I know, you hate them) and one of ...
