Mixson Mingle Jingle

Happy Friday the 13th! I’m fast and furiously working on getting some new bags ready for tomorrow’s Mixson Mingle Jingle. I hope the weather holds out.

UPDATE: Due to the impending rain, the event has been moved into the Club Room at Basico and MB&RC. 4399 McCarthy Street at Mixson.

Have a safe and fabulous weekend!

Lowcountry Artist Holiday Market

A very happy Monday to all! I’m very excited to announce that I’m participating in the next Lowcountry Artist Market on December 7th! I have several pieces of my beautiful new vinyl cut out and now I have that deadline to get me in the pants again.

Bon Weekend – Black Light Fun

Michael is always looking for a chance to play with his black/uva light device. We have a small collection of vaseline/uranium/ouraline glass and are always looking to add to our collection. We have smaller version we carry with us when we’re hunting for vaseline glass. We’ve been asked how we’ve created some of the effects, so I thought I’d share a few things.

Our Halloween displays used a more focused exposure to the light as we were shooting in daylight and we were using a diluted solution for the specimen jars.

Our vaseline bowl, which was achieved by moving the light from the side, up over the top and to the other side. Rinse, lather and repeat for the duration of the timer.

Lovely bones

I treated myself to some of Aileen’s artwork recently. It arrived yesterday and this Instagram photo pales in showcasing it’s splendor. But that’s for another photo session! :) Currently, I’m trying to decide how to showcase it in our space. We have a pocket watch dome to display an old family timepiece but it’s brass so I started a search for something in a silver finish. It lead me to the discovery of this amazing timepiece, a Momento mori pocket watch.

‘Memento mori is a Latin phrase translated as “Remember you must die” (and the origin of the English word memento, which appeared as memento mori, “remembrance of death”). It names a genre of artistic creations that vary widely from one another, but which all share the same purpose: to remind people of their own mortality and the punishment they will receive if they transgress the rules of their religion. Skull form watches were popular during the renaissance.’

I found it on Stephen Bogoff‘s site via Watchismo. I’d love to know who has this in their possession!

I love good company

My sweet, sweet husband ordered me a few plants for my birthday last week. At his request I sent him lists from several sellers. He chose Wellspring Gardens in Florida on eBay, and they arrived today.

One Allspice, one coffee, two Nepenthes Lantern alata, two Agave potatorum, and two COLOCASIA ‘Tea Cups’.

Here they are without their protective wrappings.

This is the second time we’ve ordered from Wellspring and we’re very happy with our plants.

ETA – I totally forgot to mention that the box was filled with the scent of the Allspice when I opened it and it was wonderful.

How are these for some serious cuteness overload? Posted earlier today on Design*Sponge, these adorable plants by Sian Keegan, are a treat for those with green or black thumbs.

IKEA RÅSKOG cart

The new IKEA catalog is out and I’ve seen this little awesome little number making the rounds on the Internet. I would love to have one, or even two, for the studio. It would perfect for keeping various bits I need in multiple places while working. Color me not surprised when Lara Rossignol, one of my favorite photographers, posted hers today and not only does she make me want it more but I see spy my favorite book… Geek Love!

Bon Weekend

I saw this amazing installation of giant fish made from discarded plastic bottles rising from the sands of Botafogo beach in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil last week and had to share! Hopefully I’m not the one of the last people to see this. ;) I found these photos and info on the United Nations Conference on Sustainable Development (Rio+20) at Colossal. The photos of the fish at night are pretty spectacular.
