While voyaging cross country I spent time in Moab Utah, a stretch of land painted in earths most natural elements and unturned only by the hands of time. Vast bolders stack impossibly one on top of the other and brilliant blooms of vegetation stretch up out of the sand seeking warmth from the sun. It’s a magical space of raw land, completely awe encompassing, yet calming and unpretentious. I’ve always pictured the southwest to look this way.
I can not believe that November is nearly over! Even more so, I can not believe December is upon us!!! I feel like I’ve been all over the place recently, so here’s a recap:
1. Searching for the perfect wedding venue is more difficult than I thought it would be. Last weekend we went to visit a charming seaside inn and I felt like I was transported to the English coast.
2. Sea salt is dominating my life. I have been putting it on everything, esp desserts! This cute little container was a gift from my sister. So now I can easily access sea salt at all times mwhahahah!
3. I am a proud first time owner of rain boots and a trench coat. Total must haves, as I’ve learned, when living in SF.
4. Gold acrylic paint. I’ve done three paintings with this stuff. I’m obsessed.
I’m beginning to miss the road…
Finding lots of creative inspiration today, especially Qi Wei’s Exploding Flowers. All of you organization nuts (like me) will love this series! I have to admit I am also very interested in the theme of explosions. Violent bursts of fantastical colors and flashes of light can be so incredibly beautiful and romantic.
Just got my roll of 120 film in the mail from Richard Photo Lab and I have to admit, I quite enjoyed the luxury of having the lab process and scan for me. They did an amazing job and now I want to send them every roll! If you are a film shooter I highly recommend them.
Charles Hinman colorful shapes.
Soft slouchy sweaters.
Mociun rings (ordered my wedding rings from her).
Dolce Vita booties (splurged on these bad boys).
Spent the last few weeks traveling, moving, and exploring. So much has been documented on at least 4 different cameras. So bear with me as I begin to share in random order.
Okay folks, here are the photos of our new home at the Besler Building. Wes and I LITERALLY broke our backs getting this place livable in one week. Click here for the before photos (hideous pink walls, 20 year old fixtures, and horrifying curtains). There are still several things we would love to change, but can’t because it’s a rental — more specifically the stage our landlord built in the common area. Why the hell would someone put a stage in a living space you may wonder, well join the Committee Against Stages in Apartments club okay! I’m not only the President I am a member.
