puppies, good mail, good thrift oh my!
can you stand it??? it's dot ! my friend rori's new little frenchie pup. she is VERY funny. likes to hop around and kiss and burry under her blankie.... my friend rori, by the way, runs paper monkey press a very cool letterpress shoppe in berkeley.
i am so so so procrastinating. i should be working on my syllabi for next quarter. but since they might be screwing around with my schedule i don't want to put in all the work until i know what classes i'm teaching for sure. sigh. i think i have post show syndrome too. i pretty much just want to curl up with a book and do nothing. not very practical i'm afraid.
until i have install shots i'll tease you with all the good mail i've received of late:
anytime anything comes with annie's return address i know i'm in for a treat. polaroid from cony island [she and wendy are doing a photo crawl there. you can join them if you are so lucky. where is my teleporter??] ... polaroid of her nifty dollies.... amazing vintage buttons [i want to frame that as a piece of art]... a great catalogue of a new to me artist Fanny Brennaman . they are miniature [love #1] paintings of slightly surreal images often containing something of the domestic [love #2].
erin posted about her digital camera breaking a few weeks ago. i've admired her stuff for sometime and so it seemed like the perfect opportunity to help a gal out! you can get your own stuff from her shop .
i have loved sarah's stuff for so so long and never took the plunge to get anything. i couldn't resist the stamp and the iron-on patches.... someday maybe i'll get lucky enough to spot and buy a clothespin peep [they sell out in like seconds - at least the ones i want always do]
such an amazingly made bag and cute tape measure from nichola . oh how i love it! i think it may become my new camera bag... it's padded... the perfect size.... woo hoo! i think i got the better end of this deal... see what i sent her here
in my effort to procrastinate today i went thrifting. it was quite a good day. all the above for $8. notes on the above here
also procrastinated by finally wrapping and sending these little gifts. contents to be revealed here after their arrival down under
and since i couldn't possibly not show you one of my own pets... tonka would like to say hello!
see you all soon [phew - did you make it through all that??]
