Poem and a Picture Friday.

Hope is the thing with feathers 
That perches in the soul,
And sings the tune without the words,
And never stops at all,

And sweetest in the gale is heard;
And sore must be the storm
That could abash the little bird
That kept so many warm.

I've heard it in the chillest land,
And on the strangest sea;
Yet, never, in extremity,
It asked a crumb of me.

Tack this onto my last post.

I can completely relate to this post on my polaroid blog, (no, not my polaroid blog, but her polariod blog)

6 more weeks of winter.

For the past couple of days it has been snowing more than I've ever seen it snow. While the stuff is beautiful, I can't help but ache for warmer weather. I never thought I would be such a baby about all of this, but I guess my California roots are deeper than I thought. I think I may weep with joy on the first day that I can go outside with a t-shirt on.

Anyhow, I was looking through the top Northwest House Tours on Apartment Therapy, and came across this colorful pad. I love the picture of the back yard above, as it conjures up warm, summery thoughts. I can't tell if thinking of warm weather is making everything better or worse.

I don't really care either way. I'm going to keep dreaming.

Superga Shoes.

A couple of weeks ago, my friend, designer Jeremy Slagle, called me up and said he needed a model for a catalog he was working on for an Italian shoe company called Superga. So I squeezed my 10 to 11 sized foot into a size 9 and he took some shots. As you can see, he's just as talented behind the camera as he is with a pencil and paper.

Just looking at the pictures sends a shiver up my spine. It was around 30 degrees when we were shooting. Chelsea+Skirt+30 degrees=Purple Legs. I'm glad that didn't come through in the finished product. Also, the photo of the shoes with a twin lense is shot on our wood floors.

The whole thing came out great and I'm happy to be a small part of a very awesome catalog.
