in a blog haze


anthropologie = dreamy Originally uploaded by dressform.

i just love the spring anthropologie catalogue cover. it just hit me in that way that certain things do. i almost made an audible cry of "oh" as i rifled through the junk mail to get to it....

today i was lucky enough to meet two ladies who in some ways i already "knew"... amanda [french toast amanda!] and mati rose , who is a pirate... well she at least says her name with a real A [which i love...] not only did i get to dine with them but i got to run thru the H&M store with them too! [yes i scored some yellow sunglasses and hair accessories]. they are both as charming as their blogs in person.... the internet.... now i want to meet all the rest of you! so far all my real life blog encounters have been amazing.... and i may even have another one this week!

i have really been thinking about mav's thoughts on art all day.... and i have been thinking about "talent" too.... but i will post more about this hopefully tomorrow... i also go to "check up" on my wall work tomorrow and see what else i may have instore for myself.... i'm dying to know what it will look like w/ fresh eyes....

i leave you with the incredibly sweet gift mati brought for me!

How fortunate to have made so many new friends via the blog! And to have their art around you in your home/studio means that they are part of your life everyday....

The cover really is great...it's like a mix of Magritte (mood and light) and Seurat (motif)...very pretty. I wish we had Anthropologie over here (I was in there twice a day when we were in LA two years ago...I just had to look at EVERYTHING...:) ).
And that painting! Wow.
Lucky you and how wonderful that you can meet so many for your internet friends in person - that must be so inspiring.

xo,
mati

P.O.P,

Every bit of joy that finds itself to you does so because you are a joy magnet that deserves it.

I love you and am so happy to hear your happy (or otherwise) thoughts via your blog (or otherwise).

I think I'll have to check out this Mav person...

I LOVE anthroplogie..even though we don't have a store here! I found out about them when two of their buyers were interested in my work..but I don't think I could make enough of a large quantity for them! Oh well..start small I say :)
Glad you girls had such a nice meet up...now H&M, that we do have !!!! XX

Beautiful gift! Very strong with the elephant, but soft and dreamy with the leaves.

Thanks for linking to anthropologie -- I hadn't seen their new catalog!
