I've Gone Vintage...

I am so into vintage lately: ruffles, rust, patina, birds, crows, long lost drawers with chipped paint and old newspaper clippings. I love it all. Most recently, I attended a fancy show in Monroe (MOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO) called Ruffles and Rust. It was fancy and lovely with lots of dressed up ladies, mucho rust and tons of pretty vintage creations.

Life is a Trip

I love this poem by Neruda
When I cannot look at your face
I look at your feet.
Your feet of arched bone,
your hard little feet.
I know that they support you,
and that your sweet weight
rises upon them.
Your waist and your breasts,
the doubled purple
of your nipples,
the sockets of your eyes
that have just flown away,
your wide fruit mouth,
your red tresses,
my little tower.
But I love your feet
only because they walked
upon the earth and upon
the wind and upon the waters,
until they found me.

Diego is almost asleep, my throat hurts and I'm sneezing. I just hung up on Mer, Cesar just hung up on me and the house is finally quiet minus my typing and the sounds of the electrical machines running.

What A Weekend!

I had a weekend to myself. I traveled to Fremont and saw some human testicles and other creativity! Saturday was too crowded but I ventured back on Sunday and walked around for hours. I saw artist friends and met new lovely people. I was inspired and exhausted. Later I traveled to the top of Queen Anne to see my friend Shelley and her lovely boutique Meadow. You should visit her shop if you haven't already! I came home in the evening watched my friend's daughter and made her school teacher some earrings as the last of school is Tuesday. I made some more mad creations and must hit the hay as it's 11:15pm. Monday madness will be here before I know it!
