what’s going on
good morning guys, hope you’re having a fantastic week! it’s finally quiet around here and i’ve come to the realization that the only way to work, blog or even work out, i have to be alone. otherwise someone always wants to do something fun, far away from the computer! i’m expecting liz any moment but wanted to stop by and say hey.
not posting about anything in particular, just getting what’s on the desktop before it gets filed or deleted, starting with nature’s colors. i’ve been saving these images for palettes and inspiration, and the links below them have an infinite selection of combos of mother nature’s astonishing creativity and great taste!
on another note, just thought i’d post a little of what i’ve been up to behind the scenes. i mentioned before that OKL asked me for lighting so being a bit of a literalist, i went and sourced from my favorite haunts and have been working on it for weeks.
i’ ve been in the vintage and antiques biz long enough to know how to fix up most anything but when you have 10-20 lamps in your life they start to get pretty needy.
it’s not just getting a cute lamp, but finding the shade (that’s perfect and trying to keep it that way), and every detail from the finial, to the harp, the spider, the socket and the wiring! doesn’t seem like a big deal but in a group it’s a pretty big task. and trying to keep them pristine and photographed…don’t get me started!
how do you feel about original wiring? i think it shows authenticity but maybe it’s best to rewire. i like the old. what about you? anyway they’re finally sitting quietly waiting to get wrapped and packed, the last of what’s left in my apartment as i have one foot in an the other out the door to make a move once the right apartment appears. (i didn’t get the one i wanted so back to hunting).
well i better get going. only a couple days left to put my trip together, i’m leaving on the 20th and have to get our itinerary settled. i’ll share it once it’s locked down. i’m looking forward to exploring the sud. ok, off to work. have a great thursday!
