Patty Griffin has been in my head for a week. And god while I love her, it has been remarked upon that the music I play in the studio may indeed drive one to Sylvia Plath tendencies… I need some pep in my music. Absolutely.
My Mary Anne pal/model/wise sage friend was in town this weekend for a brief minute. A kind & eloquent balm to a weary soul.
Gave her a preview of s/s13. She’s pre ordered some of my favorites. It’s good. This collection. It’s French romance, Japanese simplicity and farmgirl useful. That’s how we do.
She went home with a lovely linen frock of pale cornflower blue. Golden dots hand embroidered. One of a kind & it’s found it’s home. In return I’m getting some amazing music out of this lady. She’s sending me Get On Up Off The Floor Now Gal type of cds. And some yoga music too.
I’m in a clear it out mood. I start to itch with too much detritus around.
So I’m wondering – is there a way to do a sample frock giveaway in exchange for songs? Literally -a send me a cd of your favorite dance music, running music, getting over heartbreak music, peppy ballads, etc and let me know which sample piece & I’ll send it along to you? It’s time to dust off my boots and put on my hat and rope a brighter day.
An exchange of songs and frocks? I’ll be chewing on how to do this. I’d love to get it rolling next week -I think it could be immense fun!
Until then – this:
Walked into this naughtiness – bed was made:
And then there are these:
I’m becoming that person aren’t I? I have a miniature donkey obsession. Like those people with kitty pictures in tiaras & glitter. It’s ok. A smile is worth a fortune right now.
I will send you all the dance tunes you want! I have been in a dancing mood and could use a new frock to go with!
I hope all is well in NC. Took your lovely Katy-did out for birthday drinks yesterday.
