Sweet little bits I brought home with me yesterday. Pearly shell rings, silver disks, milky white teardrop jewels, and the best of all, vintage buttons from old Victorian boots. All on my new studio work table, which makes me even happier.
These will find future homes on charm bracelets.
I have begun working on the studio. It is already feeling better in here, even without opening a paint can. I'm thinking of a very pale gray in here, there is a color in the Martha Stewart line at Lowe's called Mercury Glass that caught my eye. The more I think about this, the more I need this room to be kind of a blank slate color-wise. It needs to appear aesthetically clean (both literally and figuratively, but speaking figuratively at the moment). There is definitely enough print and pattern flying around here on any given day, so that narrows it all down a bit. It is funny how what we wear and how we color our homes are (or seemingly are not) related, as some of you pointed out. My clothes have been very black this year, with an occasional shot of fuchsia or that blue I love peeking out of a sweater or around my waist as a belt. I have worn a basic black J Crew cardigan with the sparkly rhinestone buttons almost every day since Christmas. But its all been pretty basic. Maybe this studio just needs some black, a few sparkly rhinestones, and a shot of the teeniest bit of blue. Let's ask my studio partner-
Maybe you've heard of him, a very famous comic book artist. Give this guy a sharpie, about five sheets of white paper and a stapler and in no time you'll have yourself an original one-of-a kind comic.
I have the best studio mates.
