In the Garden. I was able to finish it last night, right before driving into town (an hour each way) to order business cards and postcards in the Starbucks parking lot, because our satellite internet doesn't cut it. We got tea too...I wouldn't think about stealing internet from Starbucks (well, I did think about it, but it was cold and tea sounded good).

Happy Monday. I just finished packing up orders and before walking down to the post office, thought I'd share a few lovely Etsy items which are distracting me from my usual Monday melancholy (I had to force myself to turn off the music after listening to Elliott Smith's No Name #1 on repeat the last hour...I love that song).

Urban Grace Interiors.
The painting is a second version of Watching Trees, and measures 42 x 72 inches. A big one!
The room my painting is in didn't make it into the magazine, but it was still really fun to participate, and so exciting to see these photos! You can see more photos of the house on Erika's blog.

Above is the final incarnation titled Dreaming, 24 x 30 inches, acrylic on wood panel, available here.
We were so glad we did! We sat in the bleachers (only $10 a ticket- we would definitely recommend this over buying normal seats) amongst drunk (we were surrounded on either side by groups of bartenders) and giddy Giants fans, and had so much fun watching our team rack up the points, while eating delicious fried chicken from Farmer Brown's Little Skillet (a really neat chicken and waffle stand only a couple blocks from AT&T park).
If we could afford post season tickets (apparently they start around one hundred and some dollars for the bleachers) we'd be there every game!
Kai pieced together the top panorama. I was smiling the whole game, but apparently not when he took this surprise photo.
My only gripe with baseball is: where is women's baseball? Did professional women's baseball only exist in the forties? Hmm...

|Works in progress.... I'm awaiting my new fancy easel I just ordered with a wedding present gift certificate from my mom's sweet friend Ellen! I'm so excited to have a proper easel soon!|
|These Gray Cotton Trousers by Naftul look really neat! I like the buttons.|
|I finally got my dream loafers from Ele. Eleonora is so sweet, and these shoes are so gorgeous. No wonder she sells out completely every month. You have to snatch these up quick!|
|I also got this super cute black dress (with aline type skirt) and little yellow top from my drawing number one. The owner, Marie-Claire is awesome, and this ensemble arrived sweetly packaged and fits like a glove.|

It is beautiful and shiny and made from reclaimed barn flooring, I believe. We estimate it weighs between two and three hundred pounds. I couldn't even lift a corner, and Kai dragged it in somehow harnessed over his shoulder...without injury! Please excuse the crappy sheets, it's laundry day.
