Christmas Cards and an update

Sunday, 22 November, 2015

Its that time again! The beautiful Christmas season is upon us.  I’m taking addresses for Christmas cards so that I can put some joy in your mailbox.

I’m taking addresses for Christmas cards so that I can put some joy in your mailbox. It’s a favorite tradition of mine that I hope to keep going for a very long time. While I never expect to receive one back, it’s my great happiness to write them and send them with wonderful wishes to you all and yours. I find it so personal to be able to send a hand written card to a friend knowing that there is love and support in the ink.

If you would like to receive one, please do one of the following:

  • Email me
  • Message me on Facebook
  • Message me on Instagram
  • Message me on Tumblr
  • Or leave me a message here on this post. (All comments are held for moderation thereby keeping your address private)

Christmas is just around the corner from us. This year has been quite the whirlwind and gone by so very fast. I must admit, it’s been a year full of ups and downs. I’ve had more health problems this year than in years past. I’ve been to more doctors in this one single year than I have since my childhood… And I seen a lot of doctors in my elementary years. Although I’m not going to get into my health as I like to keep my life personal I did want to let you in one why I’ve been missing out on a lot of things. If it’s all the same, I will be okay and I thank you in advance for your thoughts. I think I’m on the upswing and want to continue moving forward with nothing but love in my heart.

Taschen Gallery: David Bowie & Mick Rock

Wednesday, 28 October, 2015

I found out from a friend on Instagram that there is a David Bowie gallery at the Taschen on Beverly Boulevard in Los Angeles.  The gallery are photos taken by Mick Rock – Known as the man who shot the 70’s.  When I found out that there was an exhibit like that taking place here in Los Angeles, I knew that I had to go!  I am a long time fan of classic rock, photography, and of course I adore David Bowie!  I have even done a few David Bowie pieces of artwork. And attending the gallery, I was inspired to do another piece.

I was so very thrilled when I seen photos taken of Lou Reed, Iggy Pop, and Debbie Harry of Blondie!   One of the greatest highlights for me was a photo that I stood next to to have my picture taken, it was David Bowie, Iggy Pop, and Lou Reed. You just cannot get any more beyond brilliant than this.

I am including photos that I took at the gallery, however these do not do the actual photos justice.  Photos are available to buy, but they are expensive!  There also have limited addition number of books:  1972 to be exact.  These copies are signed by both Mick Rock and David Bowie! They go for around $700,  and at that price it is definitely a buy for the discerning fan or historian.

It was supposed to run only until October 10, but I later found out when I arrived at the museum that they had extended the show until October 30.   If you are interested, you can always attend and I highly recommend it! It is a free gallery, and it is open until 7 PM. The staff there are very friendly, they encourage you to take photos  and offer refreshments such as water or beer.

Outside the building! How amazing is this? Ignore my moon face~!

Lou Reed and David kissing… Ohh, and of course there is Mr. Mick Jagger, who is often referenced as being my father because we have lips that could swallow the world.

David having dinner on a train car. Such a candid moment.

The photo on the left is one of my favorites in the gallery! The raw feeling is just primal. Ignore my sisters cup on his “cup” | Right photo: He looks so at peace, so dynamic from photo to photo.

Saxaphone! My love of the sax is deeply rooted! I am addicted to sax.

This photo is just beyond words, I’m very inspired by it and may due a piece of this.

Those legs!  Those shoes! = Swoon!

David Bowie and Cyrinda Foxe

I was so surprised and happy to see one of my favorites here, the stellar Iggy Pop!

Happy Birthday to me~!

Friday, 25 September, 2015

My birthday! It was on September 20th. And as almost everyone knows…. Oh, the terrible black mood that comes over me during my birthday week. It’s like the entire month of January rolled into 7 days.  If you are curious, for some reason, January is always so hard for me and to this day I have no idea why. Well, this year wasn’t an exception however I did have to go to the doctor practically EVERY DAY, ALL week long doing tests and bloodwork. And if you are also curious about that, it’s still on going. I have more appointments coming up.  The one good thing about being busy during a bad time is it gives you less time to think about your silly stupid self.

Nonetheless, I was still a gloomy gloomy grumpy girl who tried to stay smiling through melancholia, it’s the best way to fight off the blues.  After all, happy girls are the prettiest, right?

The morning of my birthday I wake up to a bouquet of pink roses and alstroemeria… can you make me any more happy? Oh yes, when you bring me a starbucks too! Thank you so much~!

And to set up such a beautiful display of gifts and the wrap! My goodness, the paper and packaging of my dreams! I don’t need what’s inside when the outside looks like this! Who ever said that it’s what’s inside that counts? I think they were looking too deep.

The highlight of my gifts was this beautiful tiny cross! It’s so perfect and tiny, I always wear one around my neck and this one is just so perfectly light that you don’t even know it’s there unless you look.

Sathony on the left and Amoura on the right – How cute are they?!?! *squeel*

Amoura on the left and Sathony on the right – Oh, their fur~!

I had a sugar free angel food cake with berries. And it wouldn’t be a good birthday without a card from my mommy.

My other phenomenal gift…. Rag&Bone skinny jeans! In my size!!!!! They are a second skin. I adore this brand of jeans over all others.
And I hope to see some of you at L.A. Fashion Week! I’ll be walking~!
