august already is it? well, i decided to post more pix and less text...too much to recap!
did lots of vintage shopping...BEST road side stand EVER is in Watersville NY. you'll know its the one if Lucille runs it. She is the greatest. if you aren't laughing while shopping...then you have no sense of humor.
ok. i have to stop sharing vintage pix....but man it's insanely fun to pick and find!!
funny blurry pix of jeff suffering in silence pre fireworks. he hates crowds. i like making fun of him in crowds.
beach!! eli post swim chills.
finally. some art in this here art blog of sorts. see what happens when you have 3 months at home with 3 boys day in and day out? that's summer. i still squeeze in a few hours a day in my studio.
i found these in the archives. just sketcy drawings i did for a show with graphite and coffee. never finished them.
maybe i'll put them in some vintage frames and sell them in my shop... i have no originals in my shop as of late.
Here's how my "goose girl" looks framed:
these old frames are another one of my guilty pleasures....finding vintage frames is kind of an art that i'm learning to master...(it helps that my close friend owns a vintage shop!)
ok. i have so much more, but i will end here. i was asked by one of the teachers (a dear friend) to please illustrate each child's symbol for her new class this year. (my kids go to the waldorf school of philadelphia).
since in my son's class, he's an acorn and my other son's symbol i think was a starfish...i thought it would take me one night to do 18 or so symbols. but then i got the list...holy mama. Then i remembered of course. this is Kasea...the earth mother of all earth mother's. it's been a week, and they aren't even in color! but such fun.
the symbols are like, "the magical harp", "mystical mermaid", "healing linden tree"..you get the point. come by the kindergarten wing in the philly waldorf school and check em out!
the laughing brownie. (he's a little raggedy man who loves to do kitchen/farm chores while you sleep and gets a bowl of creme for his hard work). nice. where's my brownie? why he laughs? wouldn't you if you did all of that and just got creme??
i'll be sure to post them when they are all done. it is such a nice break getting out of my head to do these....
i'm done. what happened to my "little text more pix" idea i had at the beginning of this entry?? ah well..maybe next time!
xo happy August!!
