dreaming of carousels

Can I wear this to work today? (Actually, I probably could considering it's friday and it's Halloween weekend and I work at an arts center.)

oh mom

why didn't you keep more of your clothes from when you were my age? I have an awesome pair of boots of hers from the late 60's or early 70's, several scarves and a purple silk dress with red piping from the late 70's. But where are all of your clothes from your 20's??? I totally would have worn her prom dress to my prom. (believe me she has a ton more, these are just the photos I happen have at my house.)

and while we're on the subject, why didn't you keep your jag?!

Can you guess...

...ok so this one is obvious, but it was either make it obvious or too vague. I think this was the first horror movie I ever saw (the original one). I watched without my parents knowledge on HBO. Parental controls just screw all of that up for kids now. But they do have the internet...

1. The Honey Trees, 2. 26160, 3. expired VI, 4. The End of Alice, 5. 187 in a hockey mask, 6. Untitled, 7. Untitled, 8. mum underwater., 9. Untitled

New Calendar!

I finally decided to put together a calendar this year. I've thought about it the past two holiday seasons, but this year I made myself sit down and figure out a cost-effective and attractive way to do it. I love the loose page design that everyone seems to be doing this year. I opted to use 90 lb. acid-free watercolor paper instead of the traditional photo paper. I love the way they have turned out. The watercolor paper gives it such and interesting texture and it's so thick!

Just put one in my shop and am putting a few in my stores in Decatur and probably Serenbe as well. Let's hope they sell!

How awesome is the lookbook for the new line from dear creatures? I love the vintage props and those t-strap patent leather shoes belong on my feet!

Can you guess...

..the horror movie? I was going to do a series of these for the month of October, but time has gotten away from me. Here's one that I saw as a child and it still freaks the crap out of me. Whoever gave this movie a PG rating must have been on crack.

1. lightning 6, 2. Outside My Window, 3. creepy juanticio, 4. Up In The Air, 5. Untitled, 6. London, May 6th, 2010, 7. Untitled, 8. happytoberunningaway, 9. legs

I just stumbled across this amazing jewelry line called triian which is a collaboration between Trisha Brookbank and Brian Burkhardt. They approach each piece as a wearable sculpture. I can't decide which is my favorite, but I think I'm leaning towards the peppermint green bangle. I love the decay of each piece and the little sparkles hidden in the cracks. So fun!

take me to the sea

I've only been back for less than two weeks and already I'm longing to go on vacation again. I just need a distraction to escape my life right now. I'm sure you all know the feeling.

art history

Someone donated a huge library of art books to my work this week and I've been going though them bit by bit. I found this wonderful book (of course I didn't write down the name of it) of American Impressionist Painters. Now normally I hate impressionism. Mostly because the museum here in Atlanta feels it's the only period of artwork worth exhibiting. After looking through this book, I realized we never really studied many American artists before the 20th century in art school. It's really a shame because there are some amazing paintings from that time.

Here's a few of my personal favorites:

Hide and Seek by William Merritt Chase

The White Girl Symphony in White Number One by James Whistler

Fleur-de-lys by Robert Reid

April Love by Arthur Hughes

end of an era

I usually don't do sports posts, but I have to for the one sport I care about. Last night, we were at the Braves playoff elimination game which also happened to end up being Bobby Cox's last game. He's been the manager of the Braves for the last 25 years and won 14 straight division titles, including winner of the World Series in 1995. It was such a sweet moment when the Giants were celebrating their victory on the field here in Atlanta and we were all chanting "Bobby". When he came out to wave his hat the Giants stopped celebrating to salute him. I can't imagine the Braves without him. We'll miss you Bobby!
