Ask me anything   About the Blog (and a bit about the blogger)   

Central Floridian - photographer, illustrator, and (occasionally) very bad writer. This blog is mostly for my drawings and non-photographic-related creative-ish stuff.

I moved - and now have a roommate. Working retail during the holiday season means I have no life until January inventory. With that coming next weekend, it means I can get a semblance of a routine back down again. And maybe this creativity dry spell can get moistened. Moistened. Moist: how I hate that word.

I was in Orlando Saturday, in my first-ever pride event, volunteering with my job. It was a huge amount of fun and there was so, so much eyecandy to be had/seen there. This was photographed as I walked past in the parade.
And yes, I did carry a carriage parasol the whole day.

Something I made today, which may be the most ridiculous thing I’ve made for myself: A leather cuff bracelet covered in scallop-pinked black silk taffeta and bead-embroidered with French Jet and red coral. The hook-and-eye closure is hidden by a faux bow, which took a bit to figure out, and until then the silk was just all hanging down being very Adam Ant-esque, when I was going more for a leather-daddy-meets-Godey’s-Ladies’-Book kind of look. So now it’s more what I was going for, now that it’s all figured out.

So recently, I’ve been doing some sketches for a potential project for a local store that is owned by a couple who I dearly love - this one was one of my favorites. Their store is a midcentury modern store, and we share a love of Catherineholm enamelware, so naturally all the sketches are like, all involving Catherineholm stuff and motives.

So this is like  a solar system thing. I normally don’t go for “cute,” but I liked this.

Crappy photos of what has to be my best thrift shop find ever: a René Lalique “Chicorée No 1” bowl, ca 1921. Found at a Goodwill store for $1.99 - it’s chipped, but it’s still Lalique. The cashier ringing it up asked “Did you see the chips on this?” (there are two, sadly, but again, whatever. It’s still Lalique!) and my response was, “Yes, but I also saw the mark in the middle.”


It just makes me really happy - I’d have never imagined I’d own a piece of Lalique glass - especially an antique one.

A favorite farmhouse of mine in rural north-central Ohio, if I remember correctly - Such gorgeous drip moldings around the windows and cresting too. I love it - and want it all.
