WILD IN SEATTLE

Met some new friends whilst galavanting with some old friends last month! The charming Kimberley Gordon, mastermind of Wildfox Couture, traveled to Seattle from LA with fun girlfriend in tow and told their cute tale here. I was so entranced by her captures of our fair city, I couldn't help but give it credence here on LMK also! Go look at all her GREAT pics of the voyage and love on the amazingness that is WILDFOX.

ART IS THE QUEEN

"Art is the Queen of all sciences communicating knowledge to all the generations of the world."
-Leonardo Da Vinci

fave nook.
 Tokens of a religious nature, family heirlooms, small trinkets, mostly anything I've taken a fancy in over the years has accumulated in boxes I carry with me everywhere. I can not part from even the tiniest of miraculous medals random convents send me from putting my name on some Catholic mailing list years ago. I always know I will want them or need them at some point; something about their delicateness gives me a strange peace. 


goodies.
 With the help of some teensy tools, I made a couple rings tonight.  One is a St. Lucy medal, a name and story I've always loved (legend says she survived being burned alive after refusing to be put into prostitution by her betrothed, what a guy). The other cabochon back I painted gold (same color I painted my favorite little apartment nook above) and glued in a medal with the dove of the Holy Spirit. The artist in me won tonight, back to science tomorrow.

BIG HANDS.
 itty bitty ring on left hand is my grandmother's, pearl on right from Forever 21.
Let me know if you have a ring in mind you'd like made, I may start a little kitten business.

RATATAT-OUILLE

Contrary to popular opinion (aka my mother's and ex's), I CAN cook.  I made this Ratatouille dish because the colors and concentric circles are enchanting.  Vegetables and I have become best friends these past couple years, I basically only cook meat now for my Thanksgiving extravaganzas.  Stupid QFC didn't have squash but THAT'S OK BECAUSE YOU CAN JUST PUT IN MORE PEPPERS!  

SpiRalZ 
mah kitch.

note : antique cat table runner.  Thanks Ma.
Make it with couscous, don't skimp on the goat cheese or you're going straight to hell, add wine, and voila, you're a chef depicted as a cartoon rat in an endearing children's movie.
  And you're not hungry anymore.

SPORTS FAN?

I finished my latest scarf.  I just like green & blue best of all the rainbow but then it was brought to my attention how very Seattle that combo conjures.  Guess I need to go to more games.
