coat swap


monday got away
with me...
so here i am
on tuesday.

this weekend
was amazing.
the sky was
a perfect blue
and the leaves
have just begun
to turn colors.

on saturday...
grub and i headed
down to the
national mall
to enjoy
the amazing day
and
see
the rousseau
exhibit at
the national gallery.
i think that
the
national gallery
is
the most beautiful
and
photogenic gallery.
it's by the
modern architect
i.m. pei
and it really is
breathtaking
in the sunlight!


i was all
orange and green
to match my amazing
new purse from
nichola:

thank you
so so much
nichola
you are amazing!
look what she
also included in
the package:

a vintage apron,
yarn,
tea...
she is a girl
after my
heart for sure!

grub and i
bought gelato
and sat outside
as the sun began
to slowly
slip away...


on sunday...

my dearest
school pal joan
and i
began on
our gocco-ing
adventure...
we have been
scheming
since
the lovely
f.pea
sent me
the gocco
when i was
wrapped up
in studying.
you will all
soon see
our first
batch of
tees...
from
TATAbox designs.
here's joan
practicing
on my old
field tees:


so this week
for the
late
monday give-away™...
i mentioned
that i am
putting up
some of
my coats
for swapping...
here are the first
batch of coats:

the tweed coat
(left)
is very heavy
and warm.

the middle coat
is hot pink
and
the short coat
(right)
comes
with a matching
pencil skirt!


email me
if you
are interested
in the coat swap:
bugheart(at)gmail(dot)com
i am up for
swapping anything-
vintage/thrift items,
handmade items,
etc...
more coats tomorrow
and
will be back
to the classic
monday give-away™
next week.

happy tuesday!

those polaroids and the shot of the gallery w/ the blue sky and one cloud are just all breath-taking...

you guys should get the stamp kit for gocco - it's much easier to print on T's all over the place with it....

what you are doing looks fantastic though.... xo... i just emailed you about the other thing.... :)

i love your photos Gwen!!!!!!!
didnt pei design the pyramid at the louvre? i think so...
Oh gocco...cant wait to see yours!!

Grub said...

For all of those curious about how to categorize buildings you have seen on this blog.

DeYoung Museum (SF) = Neo-Brutalist Architecture (aka "Super-Dutch" or "Global-Swiss") (a lesser sub-set of Modern Architecture)

East Gallery (DC) = Classic Modern Architecture

ms. pea said...

big white buildings = buildings that grub likes

other buildings = too many colors

so as the coat-swapping/giving away goes, can i stake my claim on the tweed coat with matching pencil skirt??? will they fit me?

Your grocco-ing adventure sounds like barrels of fun. Believe it or not I've never seen one in action... I was totally unaware of there existence until I joined the blogging world.
cheers, lj

Lovely weekend. How fun. And, I'm also jealous about the gocco machine. I heard you can't buy/find them anymore.
