Happy Friday! Today is my birthday! Hello, 31! I just took this snapshot to commemorate the occasion! Behind the scenes, I’ve been sick all week but I think the worst of it has finally passed and I’m hoping to stop coughing like a maniac at any moment. Overall, this has been a rollercoaster of a year, luckily filled with mostly good things and I’m thankful for that. Really, really thankful.
I didn’t have a chance to get out and do a whole lot this week (see previously mentioned sickness) but that was fine with me because I had about all the eyecandy I could handle last Friday night when I walked into Union/Pine, which was hosting a show curated by Beam & Anchor. These chairs and a pretty amazing installation were waiting inside. I love the Pendleton fabric on these — being a native Oregonian, I see Pendleton stuff everywhere but it’s not normally my thing. But, in black and white, I totally dig it.
I had a slight crush on that second painting with the dark haired man — simply titled The Hungarian, my friend and I couldn’t stop staring…he had a bi-level haircut going on and we couldn’t tell if it was an old masterpiece or a hipster take on an old masterpiece. This whole wall was my favorite part of the exhibition. Built out in various kinds of wood with planters, paintings and knick-knacks strewn about, it was cleverly done.
When I discovered a stack of old Pantone fabric swatches laying around and then landed upon Phantom, I declared it the color of the season and demanded that my entire wardrobe be remade of it. Not really, but a girl can dream!
And that’s a wrap — keepin’ it short and sweet this week! My dad made dinner reservations at my favorite German restaurant for my birthday so I’m set. Party time! See you Monday!
