I am amazed by this photo. The first shot on our photoshoot and this amazingness happened. Literally only a crop. Sometimes my little Nikon CoolPix amazes me.

Ochre and Bone

I'm starting a vintage etsy because I finally have the time to do so! (Slash...I need to support my thrift store addiction.) The grand opening will be at the end of October but in the meantime I'm having so much fun taking photos of these beautiful clothes. Here's some of the photos so far!

Feeling Stuck

I've never really been into long-winded blog posts (I suppose that's fairly obvious given my post history). To me it seems like they are just ego-patting and desperate. But, what else is a blog for I suppose.

I recently (in June) moved back home from New York. After what was the hardest four months of my life, I felt I needed the comfort of home and the distance it could afford me. And back in Flag, I absolutely felt that distance. I started working at a restaurant (something I'd never imagine doing), I cozied right back into my old bedroom, and I removed myself completely from the New York lifestyle I so desperately craved only a few six months earlier.

But I began to feel restless. Paintings go unfinished and plans remain as lofty hopes. Grad school? Yes! But I have to study so that gets pushed off. Portfolio? Yes! But that means I have to buy more canvas so that just doesn't happen. Going abroad? Absolutely! But that means learning a language and somehow saving enough money for a ghastly plane ticket. I'm lacking follow through for the first time in my life.

I had a brief 36-hour rendezvous with New York this past weekend and it reinstilled that hustle bustle that once drew me to the city. But being there also reminded me why I left. I'm still healing, and that requires time (yuck). New Yorkers are selfish and beautiful-- perhaps I no longer seek either of those so wholeheartedly.

I will get back to blogging and I will finish all of those paintings, grad school apps, learning German. And my new etsy will be up soon (Ochre and Bone).

The Adventures of Tilly

So I want to write a book about my cat Tilly. She is just a normal cat but she imagines crazy adventures for herself! Let me know what you think :)

Doodle: Some Oldies I found

I always keep a little red book for me to write and doodle throughout the day. When I was looking through them all recently I found some cool doodles.
