it rained this morning. all we could talk about was the summer, ray charles, living on a farm.
i want my hands to be in charge of my mind, ravaging through what has been used and discarded, able to restore...make something new. i want to bring those two rags together, building a window, curtains, a bed in the grass... a nest?

i love photos like this one, that wake me up on rainy sundays, reminding me there is good to come...

h e l l o !

tim + i are working on a new blog, a long overdue space where we are dumping our image archives one by one, all of our favorite rooms, living spaces, studios, etc...
we've had these images piling up for a few years now and thought it was high time we posted them somewhere. we're trying to link as many as possible, but we definitely haven't been keeping track of the images over the years as we *drag-and-dropped*...so, you can help us out, if you'd like... just let us know where the images are from, if you know; it would help us out a great deal!
yeah, so, that's here.

what else is new? i'm taking a sewing class between hibernating + working with the dogs... on the hunt for a skirt pattern sans pleats, as it is my "big project".

since i've been gone for a while (hopping around both virtual & physical worlds), i thought i'd also share with you a few things i've found + like :

>i've added this guy & this girl as a contact on flickr. both photographers' work is mysterious + haunting; a few of them really remind me of david lynch films. i like looking through them because they make ME feel mysterious. ha!
>ashley goldberg is now doing portraits, and it seems like she's been mad busy pumping them out and they look great. which reminds me, i'm still in love with sleepy raindrop, and all the other porcelain work.
>i like yellow walls. i didn't know that until recently. yellow walls are great. you can see what i mean over at remodelista.

until next time,

in the words of whoever...

i'm baaaaaaaaaaaaack!
so, here's the real question... why NOT share?
were we not taught in kindergarten that we should always share?
taking some inspiration from my 4-year old self, i'm continuing my "journey"! see you out there...


i am in a fantastic mood despite the overcast
appearance outside the window... because it is 10 lovely degrees celsius, and i'm rolling in it... really!

spring is coming, i can feel it, and i've never needed it more than right now. winter has me down (+out!)
if you are feeling the winter blues, i'm sure you understand...

the sudden change in weather that has brought out the season-pushers (luckily i'm not the type to run around in short shorts...at least, not anymore!) has got me thinking about my plans for the spring + summer,

like day trips to the island beach, road trip through the parts of canada i haven't seen yet (sadly includes every province except ontario and quebec. i'm a bad canadian), and building
the family cottage in the woods on the new plot of land.

just waiting for the sun to come out
(by the way...if you're looking for some photos of spring/summer,
polanoid has been feeding my need lately...)

happy friday.
