Sometimes you get kind of stuck. I'm stuck. I am working on some new things, and I am not there yet, but this is what I am workin on... keep your fingers crossed I get un-stuck and find the place I am supposed to be!
My friend Denise and I high fived each other over the phone when we found out we had been chosen to be in Art on Palm in Altadena. 37 or so artist , tucked away in the hills and park like setting on Palm Ave. in Altadena with Valentine Cottage to keep us company. Traffic was a little slow, but we met so many interesting, and fun people. It is always good to get out, get some feedback, and sell! I don't have a picture of our complete tent, but we were very pleased with it. We had made triangle kind of garlands, all white on white to give the illusion of wall without blocking the view. They also gave a very fun festive air to our tent, and look great in the breeze. Denise brought along her vintage baby bed to show off her pillows. This shot doesn't do them justice. I think I got it before she finished adding pillows. It was really hard to not plop down and take a little nap in the warm afternoon.
and some of her pillows...
I had a big basket of my monsters, next to our sign in table- a vintage suitcase and a rustic sidewalk find stool..
And then there were my owls...
Walt here was enjoying the great outdoors.
this one, and my collage blocks were perched on an old wood ladder- another sidewalk find.
Sorry for this... one more post without pictures. I have not been using my own computer lately. I don't know why, I am just suddenly uncomfortable with it. My last post was from work. Hehe. And this one is from Harry's laptop- enjoying the quiet, coffee, and early morning. Well, enjoying the quiet and the coffee. I wish I was still in bed and had the time to allow myself to wake up naturally. It seems I have become so delicate.... or temperamental... I have been on some kind of "schedule" for the last 3 weeks, and I feel like I am gonna just crack at any moment. The worst part is that lots of those things in the "schedule" are good things. Just too many. No time to just wake up naturally- to sleep as long as my body needs. OR time to just goof off and play..It really bothers me to be so scheduled, and yet I do it to myself all the time. Harry has even stopped trying to make me not do it. He just watches, then picks up the pieces of the crumbled me when the you know what hits the fan. So my picture less post and my question to you today is - do you do this too? Do you over schedule yourself, and then implode? and were you ever able to fix it? I feel like I am just about to figure it out like a curtain will open and I will get why I get in this place... My fantasy is that on this wonderfully overcast day.. I was just pulling weeds in my garden. Oh, and that my phone got lost for about 6 hours. O.k. I am off to save the tiny part of the world I am in charge of-that was a joke. AND though this post might seem a bit dismal... not to worry, there is a massage in my day today- and hopefully a better attitude. I hope you have a wonderful day. xoxo
I know- I've been gone so long. After a while it seemed almost impossible to get back to it because it had been so long. I think a word for it is procrastination. If you makes you feel any better, I have missed you all ( or both ) and I do talk to you all the time. To break the ice today I just wanted to share with you how spacey I have been the last few days. You might be able to relate. I was in the shower and had already washed my face with the special face cream , when in a daze I reached over for the heinously expensive conditioner, put a dab in my hand and proceed to wash my face with it . Oy. Now my face lots of bounce I guess. I swear I was trying to reach my hair to my face to save as much as I could. That incident along with the 10 cups of coffee I accidentally brewed last night at midnight pretty much sum up how things are going. Nothing really bad, but generally ridiculous.
I will have some pictures to share soon- and I will try to not wait so long between visits.
