I – Tea pieces belonging to Carlie‘s grandmother. Carlie has work published in the new issue of Apartamento! To celebrate there was a small gathering of buddies in from of Nationale the other morning, drinking coffee and lounging on sidewalk, a preview of summer months to come.
II – This year’s Fieldguided Dreamcats calendar in my newly repainted home office. When we moved in a few years ago, the landlord offered to paint, so I gave him this avocado green swatch that I used to really like. Well, he ended up painting three rooms and the hall in this color so there’s a lot of green, and I am so sick of it. Overall, I am truly sick of almost every aspect of the way my house looks and would like to change everything. It’s a daunting task for someone with no money and barely any motivation. I just stare at it and hate it. Anyway, I painted the office white and it is a welcome change. I only have two things on the walls, and I drape a swatch of sequined fabric near the window so that I get disco ball lighting when it’s sunny.
III – A tasty punch made by Marika, which we drank on Easter as part of a housewarming brunch. I ate a ton of candy and they made these awesome baked potato egg creations, mini lemon meringue pies, fruit salad, coffee galore. We had a nice afternoon walking around her new neighborhood, a pack of well-fed wanderers.
IV – Marbled leather swatches for an ANN-YA wholesale order. I’ve begun wholesaling! Interested shopkeepers, feel free to get in touch.
V – Lots of this stuff to be seen. SPRING I LOVE YOU.
VI – Sequins make good light. Although now when I look at this, all I see are those fucking textured walls that took forever to paint. Whoever invented textured walls should be VERY, VERY SORRY for what they created.
VIII – Other than Dreamcats, this print of Emily taken by Ali Scarpulla is the only thing on my office walls. I bought this print so long ago! It’s nice to finally see it on a daily basis, next to my pathetic palm plant.
