dream closet with an arsenal of wares like the scribbles above. Inspired by vintage I've known/loved(some even owned), a palette of favorite felt tip markers, and this fantastic dress that Marion Cotillard wore in Midnight in Paris...

Having fun messing around with a few leftover scraps from a recent portrait I made...my dad in our home studio while he was cutting and pasting up things like this...

I don't care what anyone says, I LOVE New England weather.
(just remind me I said that in the winter)

This past week, I happened to find myself working in house at TJX during their yearly sample sale. With the help of my good pal (& kids bedding designer extraordinaire), Anni, I was able to grab both the first sample of a quilt I designed for Marshalls/TJMaxx home AND this fabulous brimmed hat (which reminds me of several that I've scribbled). I am feeling like a pretty lucky gal right now.

I am enjoying this perfect, rainy Sunday lounging on my new quilt and listening to blues records with my guy while he bakes cookies. Man, life is good.

& right: a portrait I collaged/drew of the lovely illustrator lady herself
( I was liberal with my crayon, as Julia is the only artist I know who uses it more than I do, and gosh she does it well!)
I cant tell you how thrilled I am to have a signed Denos print in my studio/dressing room to inspire carefree creation in both my work and fashion choices. Thank you, Julia!

daily planner (attempting to plan my days) I stumbled across this flurry of flora, congregating in the pages of an unused October... seemed more apropos to today's warm weather than the season it is drawn in!
