I love collecting beautiful photos...and I love pinterest for making it so much easier to organize and look at them! Here are a few of my favorite images from around the web this week...
Fish (in the water) can be hauntingly beautiful...fish out of water..eh, not so much.
Today is one of those rare days...ok well yesterday was one too...when I don't have to leave the house not even to run errands, meet up with anyone or see loved ones. I cherish these days. I spend almost the entire time in the studio. I take breaks to work out, walk Faye and eat...and that I do at my desk. It's awesome.
One of the things I have done this weekend is finalize and make the first of a new line of necklaces. Some of you may remember the Paris In The Springtime Necklaces. The were made of glass and vintage lucite beads, hand knotted on colorful Persian yearn with a vintage button clasp. Each one was one of a kind and bursting with color. Well, the new design are basically the older sister of the Paris in The Springtime Necklaces and I heart them. They will be available this week along with the Scarf Bracelets. Yay!!
Ok, I cheated...there's a photo from last week too...but I thought it important to include Fashion Week and I think I missed a week? Well, with Adams move this past weekend things were a bit wonky. On a related note, one week from tomorrow and my apartment will finally be ready!! It was HOT this week...over 110 on more than one day, a few days we gave up by mid afternoon and headed off to watering holes...it seemed the only sane thing to do!
Life is not all waiting and wondering as I may have let on in the last post. My days have been filled to the brim with catching up on Manic Trout and a whole lot of fun this past week! I am really enjoying living in a town that people want to visit, and already this week, my cousin Jerry was here on business and took my sister Holly and I for a seafood dinner that was awesome beyond words. Here is a glimpse of some of the stuff I've been up too...
I think I just did more stuff in Austin since last Friday than I did in Millbrook in a year. Yay!!!!!!
Perhaps the reason I have always been obsessed with large bodies of water is that I find myself soothed when I look out over them. The vastness calms me down...perhaps because I realize how small and insignificant whatever is making me agitated is. I don't really know the reason, but right about now with boxed in various stages of packing around me and meets up lined up with friends to say goodbye...I need to be soothed.
Today is the halfway point between the day I decided to move and the day I actually move to Austin. 6 weeks FLEW by...how did it go so fast??? Fortunately, today is also the first day that I have felt calm about the move and not in a panic of having much to do, figuring out to pay for the pod and moving expenses and of course, if I made the right choice. All signs point to Texas and everything has been falling neatly into place so much so that its kind of eerie but in a really wonderful way.
I just finished cleaning out the last area of my apartment which had to be sorted out pre packing for the moving sale and even have a little collection of packed boxes in my painting studio. Its starting to feel very real...which is good, as 6 weeks from tomorrow I will wake up, get on my car and drive to Austin!!!
