Weekend fun. and what Harry said!

 This weekend is the Bodega Bay Fisherman's Festival! Kai is selling art, and we will both be enjoying the pet parade which includes llamas wrangled by one of my favorite ladies from the post office, Mary. Come on down if you are in the area!

According to this source: 'Upon seeing Kate, Harry smiled, turned to William, and said, "Right, she's here now."' Not quite as snarky as I had imagined, but hey it was a Royal wedding, and I am sure he had to keep it a bit toned down.

Just spotted this lovely new shop, Pop- lin on the front page of Etsy. A beautiful line of sleepwear, and another gorgeous ginger model! I want to paint her.

New sewn prints

Finally finished some new sewn prints. Today is our 4 years of dating anniversary, and we are headed down to SF to drop off some of Kai's art at the SFMOMA gallery for an upcoming sale, and then to visit other galleries and eat lots of treats.

One more!

This song makes me so happy and a little teary all at once. I love it!

Have a happy weekend!

Just discovered this recipe for the delicious sounding Algonquin from Musings on Cocktails.
 I am counting down the days until my laptop dies, so I can get a new one and this perfectly constructed sleeve from rib & hull.
Check out these super awesome Custom Solid Wood Storage Beds. I love this natural, drift wood colored one!

 Beautiful seaweed artwork from AlgaNet.

Two new paintings

 Dark Seas, and My home is the sea. Things have been slow in my shop. I'm hoping it's still the after tax lull? On the bright side I finally have time to paint. More coming soon...

Oh so lovely...

 The Delmany Velvet Mini Top and Color Study Light Catcher are both photographed so beautifully, I wish the images were for sale in addition to the beautiful clothing and objects from their shops.

A dapper dog

If I had a pup, I would give it a first and last name of it's own, lots of love, and also a bow tie collar from Silly Buddy!

Happy Martini time!

So simple, and so good! I am craving a dirty martini...yes, it is only after 11am, but it's Friday.
Do you prefer vodka to gin, if so you haven't actually tried a gin martini, because they are amazing!
For some reason none of the recipes I found include bitters, but we like to put a little splash of it in too.

Slow Train

I love this sweet song so much by the very adorable husband and wife duo, Mike and Ruthy who I was introduced to a while back in Woodstock, NY.


I would like pretty much one of everything from Fusion Sweets! Those handmade lollipops are so beautiful.

Little piggies

The best thing happened while we were driving the other day. We spotted three piglets playing amidst a group of dairy cows! They were really frolicking and looked so happy. I didn't have time to take a picture (this one's from Australia...and I'm not sure why the little guy on the end is foaming at the mouth). I said what I always say to Kai when we see baby animals, in my baby animal voice: "Kai, please don't eat me!"
Kai responds, "Mmmmmm."
