bits and pieces.

First of all…this is my second blog post of today. What is going on?

I must really be on the ball.

Here’s a little glimpse into my day, a la Bleubird Vintage.

The day started off like this.

Which turned into this.

And eventually, this. (x2)

I may be the only person on the planet that really enjoys making the bed.  There’s nothing better than sliding into a nicely made bed after a long day.

Bigsby likes to make sure I made the bed well.  After all, it’s where he sleeps all afternoon.Tried a new technique for loose curls.  Worked well.

My office has been seriously neglected since the week of Dave’s birthday.  I had to tackle this room today, otherwise I would be incapable of working in it when it’s like this.

Ahhh…that’s better. (I also totally reorganized the books in our living room and in my office, and freed up a whole bunch of space.  It felt good.)

I also moved my vintage cameras and a few of my old clocks onto the wall shelf and made a little display.  I like.

And then I found this…erm…charming little flower pot…

…And turned it into this much less obnoxious flower pot.

Lunch was leftover pad thai.  Om nom nom.

Worked on music arrangements for my jazz set.  Thankfully, (as much as I love playing piano) I am not actually playing piano in the set.  Just focusing on voice.

Someone was not too pleased that I woke him up by playing (*erm…LOUD*) Duke Ellington.  Look at that face.
Worked on a sketch for a dress I’m making in a little bit.  I have decided against the yellow though (sad face) as I can’t seem to find a yellow fabric that I like. (It will be sea-foam green instead)

Thursday dinner at the parents.  They were taking care of some munchkins. (“Me want your watching mine run so, so fast!” Is the first thing she said to me. I love toddler grammar.)

“…By the liiiight…of the silvery iPad….”

And lastly…finished the evening with some fresh nail polish…

And a cup ‘o chamomile. 

Goodnight, everyone. :)

day 150: hipsta tuesday {piano}


I’ve been practicing piano a lot more lately. Today I was off work early, and I plan on spending my evening muddling through some Chopin.
PS: I may or may not have a secret hope of being a famous concert pianist. Hah.

day 135: wthw {not really feelin’ it.}

I really didn’t want to blog today. But in the spirit of perseverance, here goes.
I had a busy morning doing the finishing edits on a wedding that I did recently. There was some really challenging colour balancing (the ceremony was in a church with RED carpet. The colours were blue and pink…and the carpet made everyone look like they had red skin.) So by noon my eyes were done looking at the screen.
But, on a happier note–I booked tickets for VSO (Vancouver Symphony Orchestra) today for our Valentines. I am so very excited. Dave and I used to go out to Vancouver a lot more for theatre and I’ve always wanted to include VSO in our culture budget. Luckily convincing Dave was not a problem (we listen to CBC almost exclusively), and now here we are! Two tickets to Rachmaninoff & Dvorak with Sara Davis Buechner on piano at the Orpheum. Huzzah!!!
Now I have the the *ahem* dilemma of what to wear.
Anyway, after feeling totally over being on the computer this afternoon, I decided to take a quick trip to H&M to find some tights (and if I happ’d upon one–a dress). I, of course walked out with nothing that I intended–although I did find this sweet little gold leaf necklace.
But…I still can’t figure out what I’d like to wear. I’ve searched Etsy…the problem that I’ve found is that all I seem to find is XS or S sizes. Some medium. Not very many large. Yarg. I was just on ShopRuche.com…nice…but nothing stood out. Went to Modcloth.com and that was…over my budget.
Any suggestions on places to look? I want classy, retro. Probably full skirted, (but I’m not picky) and NOT strapless. I really wanted something ice blue. But again…not picky.
:S
*sigh*

the fortieth day: {piano player}

I have a piano.

A few weeks ago, my brother said to me, “We have too many piano’s at our house.  Would you like to store one at your house?”
A bit of a no brainer, really.  After being without a piano in the house for 5 years, I have gotten out of practice.  I did plan on filming a little clip of a jazz piece I’ve been working on….but…er….give me a few more days to perfect it (like I said…out of practice)
