::sleepless weekend::

Thursday, 25 October 2012

I'm quite certain I won't be sleeping much this weekend. I am sure there will be driving, long chats over bottles of wine with an old friend (see you soon, Katie!), meeting a bunch of creative ladies and playing with Photoshop. All in our nation's capital.

I came across Threepenny Bikes very randomly, but now I'm dreaming of my own custom bamboo bike. Look at those beauties! Hand crafted from high quality materials and truly one of a kind.

In a couple weeks Jay and I will be moving into our first home. A beautiful house with room(s) to grow and play. It also means that I'm pinning places & spaces like a mad man, getting tons of ideas for decorating and making it home sweet home.

Plus, 6 petals will have it's own space, which will kick start the shops back to life! finally...

::make time for these::

The plan is the make time to work on fun projects that have been sitting on the back burner. I have a few vintage "objects" that I'd like to turn into light fixtures, fabric scraps just begging to be braided into a market bag and some large vintage maps that should be displayed in that scroll-like fashion. There's a long list of ideas-- most of them hit me at midnight when I'm trying to sleep. Maybe I'll squeeze one in this weekend.

This post is little off my normal topics.

I got chills watching Felix jump off that capsule's ledge. I loved that people from all over the world tuned in to the same live feed to see incredible reality TV, and it's pretty cool to see skydiving get some much publicity. Figured it was a good time to show you guys more of what Jay and I do from time to time.

My company had a talent competition recently, and Jay put together this little video for my entry. The thing I enjoy most about it (and what keeps me jumping) is definitely that I get to fly with him and make memories in the sky. Plus, the view is pretty nice from 13,000 feet.

Have you ever jumped?

Another collection in the works. Should be in the shop soon-ish. More on that later...

::a special gift::

Wednesday, 10 October 2012

Last time I was home in Florida, I found an alligator skin carrying case filled with old slides tucked away in my grandma's closet. We got them developed and made digital, too.

I'd been waiting for the right time to use that vintage scrapbook. The result was a special birthday gift. Love you, Dad.

Last weekend, my friend put together a little adventure to a local spot to pick pumpkins. Turns out it was a full on festival complete with petting zoo. You could buy a handful of feed for a quarter, and those alpacas were all about it. Couldn't get enough.

If you're anything like me you have a few extra things laying around-- mostly vintage of course. They all add to the personality and uniqueness of your home. Some people (the man in the house) will never understand.

At first, I thought I was looking at photographs...

Blown away by these still life paintings from Holly Farrell. The detail is incredible with the shadows, textures, and spot on colors. My favorite...those apothecary bottles down there. Too good.
