what i've been up to...


and panicking about my chosen profession.

and working a whole lot.

I also, for the first time in my life, bought a pair of shoes twice. I bought the first pair of sandals in March at Target and by last week, I had worn completely through the soles and rocks were stabbing my feet. Needless to say, I loved these sandals, enough to destroy them in a few short months. So when I was at Target the other day, I saw one pair, in my size, on clearance and I bought them all over again. I'm like those old ladies who stock up on Revlon Red #6 lipstick in case they ever cancel the color.

doom and gloom

Because life and career are so very doom and gloom, I treated myself to a honeycomb necklace very similar to this one from Stone and Honey

Also, I would like to note that I have cried watching the Olympics on multiple occasions now, I hope to marry Michael Phelps, I adore Misty May-Treanor and Kerri Walsh, and I think "Nastia" is the most fun name to say out loud ever.

if i had a lot of money...

I would commission a fleet of these handmade ships from Ann Wood
And then when I got married, I'd hang them from the trees.
And then when I had children, I'd hang them from the ceiling.
And then when they grew up, I'd let them take one.
And so on and so on.

life's little pleasures

Cures to summertime blues:
A) Crepes
B) Farmer's market flowers: phlox, Queen Anne's lace, lavendar and more
C) New vase from Space in Staunton; it looks like a dinosaur egg when it's empty, with pink high gloss paint inside white ceramic.
D) Splurge for August! Shoes from Design at Nine.

art fool

So I am very slowly teaching myself Photoshop and today I drew this portrait of Sean. I did not draw this freehand; I drew over his face and then deleted it. I'm going to assume that's how most people create realistic portraits in Photoshop, but I'm sure there is someone out there who does it the hard way. I'm a cheater.

color me pumped

That has to be one of the most badass trailers I have seen in years. SO pumped. And, apparently, Lil Voldemort is played by Ralph Fiennes' nephew.
