I want my kitchen island to look like this. Shouldn't be too hard to replicate.

For years, I said I would never decorate with red. It was too... well, red. Bold. Attention-grabbing. Which is not me.

Wasn't anyway. 'Cause I'm adding it to this house in accents. Likin' it.

Tuesday, April 21, 2009


It has been a busy couple of days. There has been a buying spree in my little online shop and I've had numerous requests for wholesale information from a site I joined on Friday.
I'm taking a day off from work tomorrow to catch up. If this keeps up, I may actually be able to quit my job .... someday.

Ghosts in St. Augustine, FL

We went to St. Augustine for a couple of days over spring break. We'd seen photos on google of ghosts and orbs, so we thought we hang around the cemeteries in hopes of seeing something. I'd heard that you can catch ghosts orbs on film, even if you don't see them. Since I have a pretty good camera now, I thought I would give it a try.

I didn't do anything to the photos after shooting and I have ones that I shot immediately before or after these that show nothing, so you be the judge.

If these orbs are really ghosts, the place is crawling (floating?) with ghosts!

Amanda Palmer Coasters

I was contacted by Amanda Palmer's people and asked to do some coasters using images of the artist. I was a little hesitant because she is a punk cabaret performer (a phrase she coined to describe her music) and I wasn't sure what kind of images I would be receiving. Turns out they were gorgeous photos, some showing her dying in really creative ways and some lovely glamour shots. I chose my eight favorite shots, made samples, submitted them and they were accepted.

They are now available on her site, here: Available exclusively here:

Happy Friday!

It's starting out as a really wet day, but should get better. Especially since I am on vacation all next week. Nothing like paid vacation!

We'll be going to St. Augustine next Friday. Only for one night, but that's better than nothing.

Other than that, I hope to be able to read the 3rd Twilight book and maybe make some new stuff for the shop.

Have a great weekend!
