long time no write. for several reasons actually. in no particular order i have simply been busy living my life. a life more flawed and exciting and unsettled and painful and privileged than i ever would have dreamed possible. ive truly been busy living life. then there is the fact that i am profoundly private and shy, and the whole concept of sharing my style and my life is always a stretch for me. add on top of that a couple of people/bloggers who copy me and plagiarize so blatantly it takes my breath away. yes, imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, but my blog is my personal outlet. it is real and authentic, and i do not make a penny for it. its purely a hobby, and to think there are people out there who use my words and copy my pictures and style and make money with their blog and books. it is simply disgusting to me.
it made me so sad and frustrated i didn't think i would ever blog again. i mean, why should i create and share my posts, and do all the work for actual professional bloggers and designers?
so i stopped. but i am back. and ready to expose my plagiarizers if nescessary. i will be watching.
so spring is here, and life continues to be tumultuous and beautiful and sensual and painful at times.
brooklyn still has me in its grasp. yep.
been house hunting.
ready to let go of the pennsylvania bolthole. maybe.

feeling like sharing some style inspiration and a tidbit or two tonight.

easter was quiet but nice
went to the oddities flea market at the brooklyn bazaar in greenpoint a few weeks ago. a fun trippy time filled with goths and counterculture creatures.

the house i wanted to live in for the rest of my life...
waited and looked for two years and finally found my dream. called the bank. made a bid. had an intense anxiety attack of epic proportions and withdrew my offer before i could come to my senses. i will regret letting this one get away for the rest of my life. never have i been in a house so perfect for me. ever. weeping now actually.
the house i want to sell in pennsylvania. tried another shade of pink and failed again.
sadly had to have the colefax and fowler bowood wallpaper removed from the pennsylvania bathroom. it was only up for about a year, cost a small fortune, and i loved it, but clearly over the holidays someone must have spilled a gallon of red wine in the sink. red wine spattered on pale paper looks like a crime scene. just saying. it just absorbed the wine like a sponge.
love this look. already missing coat season. preparing to be brooklyns number one mosquito victim as the warm weather and bare legs begin...
dreaming of house of hackney babylon
i officially quit trying with pink. done.
