new favorite resin ring/beneath my feet....mini update


new favorite resin ring, originally uploaded by sproutgirl74.

this rad ring is from molly proctor on etsy. she's got some good looking resin! this has tiny embedded mushrooms from california in it - and the text? perfect! i love this new ring & knew i had to have it as soon as i saw it.

i had a dream that mushrooms, along with bees (if we can save them from dying off) and apple cider vinegar to heal everything will save us all. isn't that funny?

besides the fact that i think mushrooms are going to save the planet i also have been loving the shitakes i've been getting at the farmers market - yum, yum, yum!! i've been going weekly to the market, most of the time with mati & sometimes with shash - & occasionally one of my sweet neighbor girlies will tag along too. we've been having brunch afterwards & are hoping to do more of this in the plannings of our community garden! (eeek! i'm so excited about this!!) this past saturday my friend sarah & i went dancing first & then to the market. after that, we meandered around the flower/plant garden store. it was a lovely morning!

i've been daydreaming about our europe trip this summer & searching out paris rentals & getting soo soo excited to be over in europe-town again!! i'm ready to get out my books and start scheming a tentative plan. we know london will be on there because we fly in & out of there. venezia for sure to see the biennale, and perhaps slovenia. (then...?? who knows!)

let's see, we've also been rearranging the studio (when are we not?) and will be putting new cabinets that the mister is constructing up in my space to keep some of the overflow tucked behind doors.

we've got some exciting plans tucked up our sleeve regarding our space and art & i'll tell more about that when we can firm up some plans and a schedule.

the rainy day yesterday resulted in a dee-lish slow food day; eggs florentine for brunch, & autumn soup (my papa's recipe adapted for the veggie -- potatoes, carrots, leeks, onions, chopped tomatoes, herbes de provence, bay leaf, splash of olive oil -- top with parmesan cheese......YUM!) & my mama's buttermilk biscuit recipe sub in some whole wheat white flour instead of all white, plus steamed artichokes from the market. our neighbor brought over chocolate zucchini walnut muffins with a hint of chili pepper & some homemade ginger scones. gah! we had a fest of eating to be sure :)

this week promises to be major full as well. we are seeing several shows with the noise pop festival & going to southern exposure for a drawing rally/opening/fund raiser & game night is this weekend too! i'll report back soon on the festivities!

hope all is well with everyone & a special shout out to my best lady j in ole virginia who needs an extra squeeze. i love you girl, hope things are on the upswing & i've been thinking about you.

xxx.
