This house down the street from mine has the most beautiful garden of Oriental Poppies ever. I have to stop and stare at them every time I pass. I took these a few weeks ago – now they are all in full bloom.
Salty Caramel sauce.
I love making gifs! Too much cyber fun.
My sister and I, Texas, 1992 & 1994 rocking matching floral easter dresses and holding bunnies.
I really like the colors of these photos, and whatever gesture I am making + scowl in the top left.
This was really fun to make! And super messy.
GRAVEL: a crunchy ice cream condiment in flavors inspired by American pop culture. Coming soon!
A few months back the awesomely talented designer/photographer Michelle Maguire asked me to teach her how to make Gifs to promote her beautiful line of handbags, BLIMP RIZZY. Click on that link to see more of the gifs! And now that you want a bag from her, you should check out the Spring Flea this Sunday, May 5 at Seventh Son Brewery & buy one!
Two of my plants from December, 2011 (left) and Today (right). I definitely thought shoving that plant into a skinny glass jar would kill it in a month but I was totally wrong. The Crown of Thorns has also been through about 3 wind storms and new pots and made it. Also these make me think I may have gotten a little bit better at taking photos. Spring needs to get here so I can garden again!
Newest photo to my imaginary creatures little series.
The photo is from 2 winters ago, but I think the Dodo fits really well there.
A few of my favorites from shooting the house for the Words To Let show, an upcoming exhibition by Rooms To Let Temporary Art Space.
From their website: “Rooms to Let facilitates projects that use the idea, form and space of houses in various temporary states; from the vacant lot, to the rehabbed property, to the new development.”
The whole house made me think of House of Leaves by Mark Danielewski - A really great book which I strongly recommend! I would try to explain what it’s about but it’s a little bit impossible, read it and you will see what I mean.
This is one of my favorite little pieces from the book,
“Little solace comes
to those who grieve
when thoughts keep drifting
as walls keep shifting
and this great blue world of ours
seems a house of leaves
moments before the wind.”
The Bike & Build Home/Away silent art auction was an awesome success last weekend. Kamal raised $1,334 to help make a difference for the million of Americans who don’t have a safe, affordable home. My painting ended up going for $70, which I am totally thrilled about. Jeni’s donated 2 buckets of ice cream to serve at the event which my sister helped me scoop once my wrist got really sore. Scooping ice cream seriously works some kind of mysterious muscle you don’t know exists until you scoop. It was also fun to kind of be a Jeni’s ambassador for the night (“this is Lemon & Blueberries Frozen Yogurt, made with biodynamic 7 Stars yogurt! It’s awesome!”).
If you are interested in helping Kamal reach the rest of her fundraising goal, check out her website and read about how she plans to ride from Maine to California (yes, 3,855 miles) in 72 days, on a bike. http://kamalrides.wordpress.com/my-plan/,
