Kevin Kearns

I'm in love with his work...reminds me of some early work I did with my mom's dry pastels, so light and soft..and out of production...
Don't I sound like a snob?

Now I'm ready for the beach...

Or the mountains...

And a nice sunset...

Wedding Wednesday....Sweet Punk Rock Wedding

I love Ginger brides!---especially when they're a little punk rock! There's just something about firey hair against a white dress...and how can you say no to sunflowers?!

I love the cupcakes and the earthy & vintage feel!

I do love Mason jars....

Insert Frank Sinatra reference here:

So this is The Pearl.
Its in San Francisco.
I apparently need to rent (or buy-I'm ok with either) an big ol' red Cadillac convertible and head out there. And watch movie by the pool...and drink Side Cars...and be super rad....or hip...or whatever they said back then. The Cat's Pajamas maybe?

Wedding Saturday...You had me at Mariachi...

This one is especially for Mom because she'll love the juxiposition of the spit string throat pics and a mariachi band. But honestly, who doesn't love a mariachi band?

I do love a good vintage suitcase...even when I carry it for 2 hours while walking around a Pennsylvania flea market...

Where can I get the International Mail envelopes???
And can I use them for everyday mail?

Vintage keys AND cigar boxes?! Too cute.

And a side note:
Q: Guess how much money I'm saving by switching to not dating a DB on his birthday?
A: A bundle!

The Plague

So I've had the plague since last Monday. Here are some pictures. They really don't do it justice because my super nice Canon can't even bring itself to focus on the madness in my mouth. That's right, my tongue was orange...for 3 days...and no, I didn't eat orange things. Jerk Dr. Bentley (who almost killed me once, but was the only one on call) said that was normal. WTF?? NORMAL? He said "it was my tongue regrowing" or something. Bull. And then, there were chunks of taste bubs missing as the back. Just bloody holes. Gross. Take a gander at the red enflamed mess that is my throat. Ya, it hurts as bad as it looks. AKA, no swallowing. On the bright side, I didn't eat for a couple days so that cancelled out not going to the gym. Now, the throat is in check as well and the discolored/mangled tongue situation, but I have a sinus infection and haven't had a voice since Saturday. I talk all day at my job. Amen for texting. ox and good luck not catching the plague because its sooo not funs and it'll make you uber sad.

Happy Snow Day, even though it isn't snowing anymore.
P.S. How much do you love my spit strings????

Sue Rubira

How awesome, creepy, beautiful, disturbing are these?! I'd love to see them up close and personal. Most of the talented Sue Rubira's work is unidentifiable as a painting.

Books, Keys, & Teal

Ok. Again, even with the lack of perspective boyfriend, real boyfriend, fiance, or significant other, I have decided on teal and mustard of late. And I was thinking of using vintage books, specifically beatnik books, as favors. Although I do love them as center pieces as well.... and invitations....especially when combined with skeleton keys and teal....

Kate MacDowell

Marinate on this:

"In my work this romantic ideal of union with the natural world conflicts with our contemporary impact on the environment. These pieces are in part responses to environmental stressors including climate change, toxic pollution, and gm crops. They also borrow from myth, art history, figures of speech and other cultural touchstones. In some pieces aspects of the human figure stand-in for ourselves and act out sometimes harrowing, sometimes humorous transformations which illustrate our current relationship with the natural world. In others, animals take on anthropomorphic qualities when they are given safety equipment to attempt to protect them from man-made environmental threats. In each case the union between man and nature is shown to be one of friction and discomfort with the disturbing implication that we too are vulnerable to being victimized by our destructive practices."

Reading Light

And I thought I was cool for collecting books. Next project? I think not, unless I develop OCD and aren't afraid of lighting things on fire. Super rad none the less, and thats coming from a line of librarians....
