I could not resist buying this adorable 6×6 original painting by Mati Rose yesterday. It’s called “Pissy Kitty” and it’s up on her blog right now. And that “SOLD” notice means it’s in a box heading to my front door as we speak!!! Yay!!!!!
I have been here one month and today I officially miss the ocean, the San Francisco Bay, and all the nooks & crannies that go with it: Stinson Beach, Bolinas, West Marin, Sausalito, the Embarcadero, Ocean Beach, Baker Beach, Marin Headlands. I also love that I am in full-blown summer here in Ashland, OR and […]
I posted on our blog at work today about loving all things aqua & antique & I have not stopped thinking about it. Here are some lovely pieces of local inspiration…some that have made it home with me, some that I have just admired.
I’ve become a lackluster snail mail correspondent in the last year where I used to pride myself on handmade envelopes (Mindalopes! So fun to make!!!), illustrated letters, and quirky cards leaving my little post office. This typewriter shot is an attempt to remind me how great it feels to send mail…so p.s. write soon is […]

You deserve a trophy!

Happy holidays everyone! This particular year feels extra cozy & creative. Family is coming in, the house is decorated, cards are sent, errands have been run…kind of…but anything I haven’t done, I’m okay with. I’m actually slowing down, enjoying the moments and letting all the loose undone pieces just be. I have finally learned that […]
I love this quote. “We must be willing to get rid of the life we have planned so as to have the life that is waiting for us.” Joseph Campbell. These past few months have felt exactly like that. I have closed doors and chapters in my life that I had thought I had wanted […]
My new issue of Somerset Life has arrived! And…I’m featured!!! So excited, so thrilled and really touched to be part of this issue with these patchwork collages. They are pieces that I worked on a year ago with so much love and flurry of excitement and to see them come alive now on the pages […]
How the ocean mimics our minds….these photos, taken a day apart at Tennessee Valley, are not far from my mind…the serenity and gentle tide of “it will all work out and anything is possible” only 24 hours after “nothing makes sense, who do I think I am, how can I make a living as an […]
