Art in the 21st Century

Has anyone seen this yet? I am kind of curious to see the dynamic that is created by combining 14 self centered artist's and their egos in one room with a film crew, I imagine it would be similar to throwing two drag queens in a pit with only one set of false eye lashes, now they should make THAT a show....Project American's Top Drag Queen:) Otherwise I am quite appalled by the concept and the lack of respect the artist's have for their work and creative process by subjecting themselves to this, it's cheap and tacky and makes me lose faith in the idea of a modern day Rembrandt.

Windows and Shopping

For the last 4 weeks I think referring to "being busy" would be an understatement.  With Easter, weekly orthodontists, ex-husbands having babies, the twin's birthday, stomach viruses, cars being in the shop, running a shop, fathers coming to visit (who you haven't seen in four years), taxes, buying out an entire vintage store and then proceeding to catalogue all 1000 pieces....well I'm at the point where I just want to eat a whole box of animal crackers and stare at the wall.

Here are a few photos of my store windows, the theme is for Earth Day and presented below our my feeble skills at crafting dresses out of recycleable materials.  I don't know, I think I did pretty well considering I've never made a dress out of trash before.

And lastly here are a few shots of what a utility van full of vintage looks like.  If you want to see what the store looked like after I unloaded the van, please refer back to this post here.  But imagine it 10x worse.

Almost loaded.

Dresses, purses and shoes OH MY!

The youngest one in curls (read: Mullet)

Lately Annabel has been channeling the Brady Bunch in the form of a  Florence Henderson mullet. The poor girl's hair just won't grow in right, maybe it was too much exposure to polyester in my first trimester.

she's not really cross-eyed
