This week I've been struggling daily with sinus headaches and a general sleepiness and lack of motivation that has left me taking long naps and wandering the house aimlessly when awake. Somehow I've managed to come up with enough strength to keep up my art journal, though. And besides the overflow of inspiration I brought home from Portland, I really, really want to make one of these and a few of these, once this headache goes away. I've started working on this dress and have another fabric for dress #2 washed and waiting in the wings. I figure headache or not, I can manage to sit in front of the sewing machine for at least a little while if the project isn't too complicated. Straight lines are good.
I mentioned that I had one more group of photos I wanted to share from Portland. These are from one of the highlights of our trip: a visit to the coolest store ever, Cargo. I had never heard of it before, but one look and I was madly in love. I took tons of pictures because this is what I want my house to look like someday, inside and out. Can you see it?
Even from down the street, you can tell this one is going to be good.
Remember this picture. I've got my own version of something like this coming soon--eek!
I know this one is blurry--it kills me!--but I had to include it. Look. I mean, look!
Are you inspired, yet? Me, too!!
And, by the way, I've added a couple of new garlands to my Etsy shop if you are so colorfully inclined. I've tried to make these inexpensively so everyone can have one. Or two. Because, really, after seeing these pictures, don't you think everyone should have at least a few garlands hanging around?? Me, too!!
