Andrew sent these Sukie hankerchieves,(i love them! http://www.sukie.co.uk/ ) we use them for bundling objects japanese style. Prawn at the bird sanctuary on Cape Canaveral.
Here we are at the beach. Azalea on the porch back home.
The bird sanctuary and Azalea pleased as punch.
Its nice to be home. It felt like we had been gone for ages! We had a great time in Florida, going to the beach, visiting friends, bird sanctuaries and shops. I could watch birds all day, so it was a real treat to sit and relax and feed beautiful white ibis's and blue egrets. I feel rested and ready to make some art! I have loads of ideas (its hard not to get inspired when visiting such beautiful places!).
I felt the need to 'nest' when I returned. To cocoon myself, to lay low. I like to disconnect from the world once and while, turn off the tv, computer and phone and just play with my girl or read a book. I just finished the second installment to Fablehaven by Brandon Mull (its in the same genre of young adult fiction that Im writing my story) and I found it pretty entertaining, it got me fired up to work on mine. That's on my to-do list tomorrow.
We spent the last couple days planning some remodeling in our kitchen and in my studio. New countertops (corian and stainless sink) and slate tiles for the floor. Its not horrible now, but Im not a big fan of laminate anything. We are going to put in bamboo floors in my studio, which I am so excited about! I can't wait till everthing arrives! It should all be finished by the end of the month. There's sickly blue carpet up there now and I simply cannot abide it anymore!
Its a large space and filled with supplies, so Im not looking forward to moving my stuff out. Well, I guess it will be my opportunity to organize. I've been studying decorating books like its my job, in hopes that I might pick up some ideas. The trouble is, I have loads of small things, and not many ideas on how to display them. Well, Im off, have a good night!
