munted kowhai

I found Tiffany of munted kowhai a few months back...however, it seems as if I have known her forever.  She is a fellow Portlander (which really gives me no excuses as to why we have yet to meet) and she possesses a talent that is like nothing I have ever seen.  Her pieces almost feel too special for this era...

She has managed to conjure up wedding attire fantasies in a woman that has been married for 11 years...I would probably purchase one of her pretty necklaces first and then find a gown special enough to escort it...now that's special...

I see her jewelry as something that could be worn with a gown (wedding or something equally fancy) or with a plain white tshirt and jeans...ok, actually at this point I have talked myself into a necklace...you won't be able to resist either.

Tiffany, thank you so much for sharing space on my bliss...an honor and a pleasure to say the very least...oh and I know we will meet one day...perhaps porque no?

Unravelling: ways of seeing myself

let's be clear...I do not get excited about going back to school at all...I have many, many years of education I feel as if I don't use.  However, can I please tell you how giddy I am at this moment!  I just signed up for susannah's e-course and I can barely contain myself.  I missed my chance last go around...but quickly snatched up spot this time...luckily, because it is over half full! 

"The Unravelling: Ways of Seeing My Self  e-course gives you gentle permission to take a couple of hours out of your week just for you.  All you need is a camera and a willingness to play and explore.

Beginning with your feet, you are going to go on a photo safari into your own life to reconnect with who you are, where you've been and where you want to go next.  These definitely won't be self-portraits in the traditional sense-the are personal images that honor you and your world."

I find that through my own photography I can snap away at pretty flowers and landscapes, but fall short when it comes to looking at myself.  Self-portraits are really, really hard for me...the fact that Susannah has started a class to redefine the traditional self-portrait makes it all seem really, really doable...actually I look forward to getting to know myself this way.  Plus the fact that I am taking a course from one of my favorite photographers...too perfect.

oh and if you sign up we would get to be classmates!  How cool would that be?

a fix.

Since our little getaway to the coast I have been missing it terribly.  I have said it before, the coast is my geographic soulmate.  I feel more at peace and content there than any other place I have every been...

I believe I had seen this "croft" in the North West Highlands a while back, though I can't recall where (if you know, please, please, please let me know so I can credit the blogger)...anyway, I had forgotten about it until today when I was visiting the best slice of home eyecandy I have yet to encounter, inspace (wow jane...what did I do before I had you)...I clicked the link and there it was again...the sea, the quaint cottage and the dreamy interior...just what I needed during my time of withdrawl...

I am happy to report that this weekend I will be getting a brief fix...I am heading out Saturday for one more night at my beloved coast...one of my dear girly friends is having a birthday and we are the lucky ones.  A group of gals spending a night at the coast...yay!

I am working on a wordless post of my last visit with my boys...stay tuned...
