{Tour Day: 2}

Meet my elephants. 
My pride and joy. 
My first and only piece of real artwork I own.

I haven't named them yet, but I am leaning more and more towards George & Martha. They are in love. Can't you tell? (Do you officially think I'm crazy yet?) I purchased this beautiful piece from a boutique design and art shop when I was still living in Seattle. After oogling through the window at it for the past two years, I was in shock to find out the store was going out of business and the painting was still available. 

 I had just learned I got the job, was about to head home to move all my belongings to Arizona, was feeling proud of myself for graduating college, and the whim to call the store  crept up on me. The store owner and I bartered what I though would be a fair price, gave her my credit card number over the phone....and POOF! George and Martha were mine. 

Moving on. Some new things happening over here on the blog. 
Drum roll.....

Fashion posts? Me?

For now there is at least this one.  Extreme amateur photography and editing skills, mostly blamed on the fact that after the one picture I had taken (see above), my camera died. Blast. I had just walked in from work, it was getting late, the sweatpants were calling and waiting for my camera to charge was not really in the cards! AND I edited it while half asleep. My art minor self is screaming at me for even showing anyone this... overexposure, low color levels and faded, oh my!

Nonetheless, one picture made it through.

  1. I think George and Martha are very fitting names... or you could always name the left on Chris... also fitting :)
