Ohh, to live in a Tim Walker photo for a day. I came home wet and drenched in mud only to find my snail mail at my doorsteps. How awesome is that. More books for me to drool over now that classes are done with and I have more free time to laze around. What I got: 100 Contemporary Artists The Printmaking Bible and Tim Walker: Pictures (a substitute for the Walton Ford book that […]

Call me frugal, but I looove it when I find amazing things under $20. I just love the brightness of that pink dress. Oscar de la Renta pink! A never-worn dress from Anthropologie that my sister got me for only a few bucks at a local thrift store. Just in time for spring! A nifty jar that my sister also got me for my collection. Some primroses will look lovely in it. And my favorite […]

I’m just going to end up being a crazy ol’ bat who collects jars and cats, which is not a very good combination come to think of it (nor a very good rhyme). But the leaning tower […]

My little cousins have books on their wish list this year, so I thought I would put together a collection of some of my favorite books to send them. I’ve been slowly collecting these old favorites so that one day I’ll be able to pass them down to my kids, in case any one of these books ever go out of publication. Someone told me recently that books will be irrelevant in the coming years, […]

Had a very busy weekend. I just finished spending two awesome days in a workshop with Craig Barber building my very first 4×5 pinhole camera. Couldn’t ask for better weather and lighting conditions either. The Menil park during the mornings are just really peaceful and amazing. Still waiting for my 4×5 test shots to dry so I’ll be posting them on the next post, but below are examples of some of Craig’s work during his […]
