It's the first of September, a great day for new beginnings. I have been lounging all weekend in my Madras Skirt that I bought the other day. One thing I did not do this weekend is work, but maybe it would have been better if I had...
I did some shopping this weekend; dropped some $$ on make-up at Neimans, bought some blue jeans, and too much wine. My favorite store these days has to be Whole Earth Provision Company. It's really a lifestyle store, and I love the sense of adventure that this store evokes in me; I ran through the store racking up my wish list for my trip in December. They carry great books and I create my library list by perusing their titles. There is a big sale going on, and there were LOTS of skirts, but I was really drawn to this Paint-By-Number Kit, and it's this purchase that I'm most excited about! I'm curious about art therapy, and this seems like the diversion and therapy I need these days. I started on it right away, and I have to admit I'm hooked.
You can't tell from the picture, but my set contains 8 vintage masterpieces. Yay!
I hung out with some great girlfriends, and went to see Vicky Cristina Barcelona today. These events were really inspiring and I have a clearer vision of somethings I want for my future, they can be summed up here in this photograph.
And now for some predictions:
1) I will travel again, and soon. Paris is definitely in the future...
2) I will have a space of my own to work and create
Another predictable photograph:
This picture is from last week's lunch with my father. It reminds me of Wayne Thiebaud:

3) creating is in my future (painting, writing, and photographs)
4) and so are cakes!
