Thinking about....

Beautiful garments. Also - shapeless and beigey-greyish. 
Somebody stop me.

We are needing Maya Angelou's brand of feminine strength in a world where Boko Haram and Elliot Rodger also exist.

Workroom glimpse.

Can you believe I'm still working on this plummy project? It's a big one.

On the farm.*

On the farm, we are suffering under drought conditions, and haven't planted much. We'll be lucky to keep anything alive. It's a disappointment - but an irrelevant one, since we don't live or die by our own agricultural prowess and meteorological good fortune.**
On the other hand, egg production is in full swing and we regard it as sort of a small, daily miracle - just look at that speckled beauty!
*It's not a farm. **We'd starve.

Around here....

A fever and a band concert. Peonies and oregano. Wrapping up and winding down....

Friday, I'm in love....

with the watch stylings of the Hanley brothers. That bad-ass gold calculator watch is worn without a touch of irony. Not a spec. I'm not exactly sure what Bjorn-Borg-kind-of-thing is happening there on the right.

Workroom glimpse....

How do you like the mood lighting? I've been working in the night....

Around here....

Around here, we've got long, hot, jasmine-scented days. The best days - or, they would be if tomatoes were in season. Also, a bike race. And? There's nothing soft about a softball.

Thinking about....

I just read I Always Loved You by Robin Oliveira and now cannot stop thinking about Manet & Morisot and Cassat & Degas.

Around here....

Omy, around here it's been a week of everything gone wrong and no one to blame but myself. And inattention to detail due to preoccupation. And maybe the alignment of the stars.
When in doubt, look up!

Friday, I'm in love....

I recently inherited this lovely little dogwood blossom pin from my Nana. I wear it every day.

Apron glimpse.

It's a little hard to see - but I made that apron! Photo from Cull & Pistol in New York - love it....

Around here....

Sometimes it's easy to focus on the positive, beautiful, amazing things and sometimes you have to actively choose to focus on the positive. And choose it and choose it and choose it and choose it.
I choose softball. It will restore our losses and be a blessing to us. (And that's a misquote of a famous misquote. You could look it up.)
Also - someone I admire very much told me that I have skills and am awesome. I choose that.

Friday, I'm in love....

Honestly? Never really saw the appeal?
But then, I watched my two young gentlemen get their groove on to Suit & Tie in the kitchen, and I'm an instant fan-girl.
Plus, he's a teensy bit smoldering in that picture, no? Shut up.
