An unexpected effect of having an etsy shop has been meeting and making new friends. One person who has been a great friend, an endless source of inspiration and my favorite blip.fm dj is Regina of everyeskimo.
I don't usually write much here on the blog. I prefer the pretty pictures to speak for me, but this post requires a little explanation. Monday was a very special day for me and my family. We all drove up to the Huntington Museum to get a private tour of the decorative art galleries. We had a couple super special stops on the tour because a few of the pieces where donated by my Grandmother before she passed away nearly 20 years ago. It is funny to see these pieces in this setting, especially since they were just "the furniture" I grew up around and put my toys in and rested my bowl of ice cream on and sat in a time out on.
When my professional lizard hunting husband or (Dr. P.L.H.H. as he is known in professional circles) travels for work I always say, bring me back a present I would like! The, "I would like" part is the real problem. Especially since most of his traveling for "business" sends him to far off deserts in the middle of nowhere Mexico, Arizona, New Mexico and anywhere else where you just can't readily buy one or 6 of these or even one of these. I certainly don't need another, "my over-educated husband went to the Sonora desert and all I got was this lousy t-shirt" emblazed addition to my wardrobe. So when he came back last trip and said he got me something, I was intrigued. Could he actually please the world's most snobby gift receiver whos taste circumnavigates the impossible to find, the not legal to own, and the costs over a million dollars realm of gifts? The answer this time was YES! Out of his dust covered totally gross bazillion year old duffle bag came this lovely gift. It looks to be a bone from a cow, whale, or dinosaur, we can't decide. The one thing that I did decide is when I saw this special gift I knew that this man "understood me", "he got me" and I needed to marry him. And I did. I love you bug, and happy 2 month and 16 day anniversary.
