Lover boy

Fashion exhibit at the LACMA

A couple weekends ago we went to the LA County Museum of Art- the LACMA. We saw an amazing Fashion exhibit with actual period pieces from the 17 and 18 hundreds- amazing!!

After seeing this exhibit I bought several very complicated historical corset patterns... We'll see how they turn out. :)
Happy weekend friends! We're in Palm Springs then out to Vegas for a show and fun.

Khaki corset

Justin wanted to goodwill an old pair of khakis. Instead I recycled them-

Notice the included frayed hem. There was plenty of fabric but I liked the character it adds.
Happy creating. Happy living.


P.S. I have a 25$ gift card (that i only paid 10$ for!) for Lark bakery in Silverlake. Who wants to join?!?

New stripes

After doing 1 1/2 root canals this morning i Had the afternoon off to work on some new bunny and pear.

I love all the vintage leather buttons my darling gramma Claudia gave me! Hope everyone is having a beautiful week thus far.
Much love,

I find it far too easy to get caught up in superficial things everyday, and once caught up, stay there.

Life is beautiful. Life is short. More and more I learn what a big deal kindness is. I found this quote in a memoir of a friend's father who passed on unexpectedly. It inspired and resonated with me-

"I believe in kindness. Also in mischief. Also in singing, especially when singing is not necessarily prescribed."

-Mary Oliver.

What if tomorrow, instead of focusing on ourselves- our insecurities, our stresses, we focused on being kind to those around us. I have a feeling a lot of lives would be a lot better and a lot more fun.

Have a beautiful week. Make it beautiful. Love and be loved.

For Dawn and Heidi

This posting is for Dawn and Heidi at Narcisse- a Victorian boutique in the pearl district where bunny and pear hopes to soon reside. This skirt was designed with them in mind.

Much love,

Mustache mania

I like mustache accessories just as much as the next pseudo-hipster. My brother David and his gal pal Cerise sent us this and we love it!

Happy Sunday!

Hello Friday.

Hello Friday. I've been expecting you for some time.

While painting acorns electric blue-

My fluffy headed rabbit, Pierre, lounged at my side.

Furry balls of fluff are so joyful-

Happy peaceful creative bliss. May Monday tarry.

Love, B
