Oh, and this too.

Is this creepy?

Scott and I read somewhere (I think on houseblogs.com) that it’s lucky to put a pair of old shoes in your walls before closing it up, so we both put up a pair of shoes. Now that I look at these pictures and imagine that, yes, these are sitting in the dark cavity, just exactly the way we left them…well, I’m getting a bit creeped out. Is that crazy (being creeped out, I mean)?

*the blue ones are mine, btw

O Christmas tree o christmas tree

Friday, January 5th, 2007

We got a silver xmas tree from West Elm this year and I rather liked it! It took us a while to put up the lights “Martha style” (run along the bottom of each branch and wired into place so that it doesn’t show – yes, we do have a life) but once it’s done you don’t have to do it again next year. You just fold it up with lights and all. Also, I had all these little painted wood ornaments that my mom gave me and they wouldn’t have shown up very well against a thick green tree.

E.A.S.T. (East Austin Studio Tour)

Saturday, November 18th, 2006

We went on the E.A.S.T. with our friends Jeanine, Jack and Tom today and saw lots of new artists and their work and ate lots of their cookies and cake as well. We also visited with Bonnie Gammill, whose paintings we love and were lucky enough to get one of at last year’s tour, and Andrew Long, who started us off with our first ever art purchase two years ago. I guess our tastes haven’t changed because we still love both of their work. Bonnie also pointed out that our painting was featured on the joshspear.com website, which we had no idea about.

Today we went gaga over silk screen prints done by Adrienne Brabham who is an intern at the Flatbed Press & Gallery – we got five of them! Each one is so dear – I feel so lucky to have stumbled upon her work.

Tom also bought a piece – which he named “Bacon in Space”. I will post a picture of it if he will let me.

Jeanine worked out a possible trade with Holly Fisher, whose pool paintings she really liked, to design her website in exchange for a painting.

And this year, for the third year in a row, we set out with the intention of buying something from Sodalitas at the Bolm Studios, and the the third year in a row, we failed at this task. The piece we were interested in was sold already, and even if it wasn’t Jack and Jeanine were eyeing it too, so it may have been for the best that it was not available to any of us. I guess it is not meant to be… yet.

Here’s our Bonnie Gammill painting.

I digress…in the interest of equal time

This is our other cat JOJO. He is also recently shaved in this picture – that is why his private bits are so exposed. I swear, they are both really cute in real life.
