new painting

I just finished my first non-encaustic painting I've done in about four years. Wow has it really been that long? Oh, how I've missed it. There's just something you get from painting that I will never be able to get from photography. I need both in my life to feel complete.

Strawberry Milk

It's mixed media on masonite.

Paris, Je t'aime

My brother just got back from a free trip to Paris and Italy. He's friends with an actor who graciously paid for him to go to europe with him. (I need to get to know this guy...) So he promised to bring me back an eiffel tower and surprised me with a venetian glass plate. I am so jealous.

Okay, I couldn't help myself. I was casually browsing the urban outfitters website last night and finally found a pair of affordable and cute grey boots. While I was there I happened to fall in love with a dress that was marked down. I decided I didn't need to spend in any more money, but I thought about them all last night and all morning. So I decided if I like them that much then they must be worth it. (Just don't tell my husband!)

I had a hard time deciding between the red or the white, but I look better in red.

I love the little brass buttons on the side.

True Blood

After renting the first season, I jumped on the True Blood bandwagon and got HBO to watch the second season. (getting curb your enthusiasm and free movies helped the decision process) I just found out that in Sept. they will be selling bottles of Tru Blood like the vampires drink on the show. Instead of blood it's a soda made out of blood oranges. (yum!) I know it's funny, but I really want to try it.

if you need a reason to watch just look below:

triple dip

I am in love with the triple dip pack of polaroid film at polapremium It works with the polaroid attachment on a holga camera. I'm especially crushing on the blue.

movie interiors - license to wed

I seem to be drawn to interiors with art everywhere. I wonder why that is...

I want those curtains.

John Krasinski has the funniest facial expressions!

I had a hard time getting a picture of their bedroom.

I have a similar mirror in my bathroom.

I also really like her flower shop. I've been meaning to make a similar storage rack for my ribbon, but haven't gotten around to it yet.

wouldn't you love to be surrounded by beautiful flowers all day?

new car!

After 10 1/2 years I finally said goodbye to my saturn. We traded it in and got a new honda fit. It's so perfect for our lifestyle, lugging around artwork and our dogs have so much room in the back to lay down. I love it!

I wanted it in light blue, but the only had it in the sport model. (I think I can live with the silver for $2K)

my husband's artistic shot

Lovely shot of me...
