So, I promise myself every once in a while that I won't be in the studio on the weekends, and for good reason:
it's nice to take time off
I need a balance in my life between social and 'work'
(I put it in quotes because I love it so much, it feels like hobby stuff, even when it gets hectic: there is too much fun in the discoveries I experience to call it work, but it is, so there's that...)
The big wide world should be explored...
it's rainy all weekend
and Anthony is taking me on a date tonight (!)
We lingered long over morning coffee yesterday laughing and talking and saying sweet things to each other...
I am leaving for Orlando, Florida (singing at a wedding, seeing tremendous friends and my family!) for a week on Thursday morning and these ideas won't rest
won't allow me to rest.
So here I am, in heaven.
Schmilly pops in for a kiss every few hours, and to look at what's got me in a tizzy today:
he appreciates my situation,
knows my heart about it
There are fins and wings and big hobo bags with foxes in love...
Choosing the suede lining, perhaps a lovely pale lavender?
There's a brilliantly messy metal bench
(leather must be clean at all times, so this messiness is only a luxury of metals...
the leather bench gets the white glove treatment.)
my fine succulent friends....
New design elements like fiddly bits for the nervous ring-wearer (this holding bowl is crazy amazing: a circle this time!)
Lavender leaves ready for rolling...
And flowers springing out of metal...
Pierced sterling medallions with maidenhair ferns
From which a prized agua nueva agate will hang....
in short, I am in love.
I am in love on a Sunday
with more things than I can list,
but these are a few.
Off to kiss the Schmill (who I love the mostest),
