day of rest

not really.

here i am at work again
trying to focus.
yesterday i was bad and i returned to the village
to buy the pink 50s/60s coat that
i saw there on friday but didn’t buy…

7. hot pink Audrey Hepburn coat, circa 1950s

cost: $10.10
contrary to typical village statistics
the coat was still there after 24 hours.
this is highly unusual…so i took this as fate.
it is really hot pink although it looks red in this picture.

i also found a skirt to match…

8. hot pink skirt, circa 1960s

cost: $1.95
it had a stylish 60s/70s tag:


unfortunately, i didn’t finish steffi’s scarf yet…

instead i went out to a restaurant with maria…
who was kind enough to buy me pg tips

as she strolled around town.
the restaurant had a bathroom that was
hot pink like my coat
and the tiles were a beautiful mosaic
i took an overexposed picture right as some gal
walked out of the stall…

she didn’t seem quite as enthralled as i was…

today i worked with stitch-n-bitchers
on our secret squirrel project
that cannot be shown here for fear that the special recipient may see it…
but i did finally get to meet
curious badger’s
(her s-n-b spirit animal name)
new kitten, margot.

named after the adopted daughter in the royal tenenbaums.
