I was lucky enough to view Sarah Folkman's work at the Corey Helford Gallery. My fav pieces were the birds painted on linen or small blocks of wood. The piece above is available for purchase via her website - lovely!!!

Colbert says....

'I believe in climate change for a very important reason: so I can market the New Colbert Report Green. It's just like the regular Colbert Report, except we reduce emissions by jumping on the bandwagon.'

Well put Mr. Colbert

What a bag, bags....

Beth Springer has a wonderful collection of hangbags, totes and clutches....handmade in my little hood of Venice, CA....I am coveting one myself.

Here's a little more info about her collection which makes her bags all the more beautiful!

My ethos: Do no harm. I am big believer in environmental sustainability, so my bags are made with nature in mind. Because I want to tread lightly on the earth, I employ the principles of reduce, reuse, recycle to every aspect of my business. The goal is to get as close to zero waste as possible.
To that end,

I design:
using no extraneous hardware. Metal feet are absent on the bottom of my bags because
1) those little metal feet use our precious natural resources, require a highly toxic process to coat, and do not biodegrade
2) feet are redundant on my bags because the leather I use can sustain long years of use without wearing through. using all remnants. I endeavor to use the entire hide.
Made using no filler- most leather bags today use a thinner leather to save money, and then back that leather with vinyl. It is a hidden environmental disaster.

Made with vegetable dyed leathers- vegetable dyed leathers are colored with plant dyes. No chrome is used.with leather that is by-product.

No exotics are used.

because there is nothing more pressing in the news today than Prez's choice of jeans.....

“Those jeans are comfortable, and for those of you who want your president to look great in his tight jeans, I’m sorry — I’m not the guy. It just doesn’t fit me. I’m not 20.” President Obama speaking with Meredith Viera in an NBC “Today” show interview
I am a proud American and lived in a few other countries. But jesus, sometimes America, you are an embarrassment!

Viva La France

It's Bastille Day...ahhh France, the home of - Champagne, Brie, Macaroons, Pepe Le Pu and fabulous French Fashion.

The Wiki beat on Bastille Day

Bastille Day is the French national holiday, celebrated on 14 July each year. In France, it is called Fête Nationale ("National Celebration") in official parlance, or more commonly le quatorze juillet ("14 July"). It commemorates the 1790 Fête de la Fédération, held on the first anniversary of the storming of the Bastille on 14 July 1789; the anniversary of the storming of the Bastille fortress-prison was seen as a symbol of the uprising of the modern nation, and of the reconciliation of all the French inside the constitutional monarchy which preceded the First Republic, during the French Revolution.

Food Trucks

...are all the rage. I am really excited to cross paths with the new Border Grill truck one of these days.
On Friday, I tried Fish Lips Sushi. I have to say sushi is probably the LAST thing I would be willing to test via truck service. But since the folks from Tortoise brought the truck I figured it was safe.
Safe and GOOD! And very reasonably priced. Check out the website to see when it's heading your way -

Jay Mark Johnson

Exhibit opening Thursday July 16th at Ace Gallery....'Johnson produces photographic images that challenge the norms of perception. Employing a process that is distinct from conventional photography, he creates works that merge the recording of space and time into a single, linear “spacetime” continuum. The resulting photographs are akin to both seismographs and electrocardiograms in that, as timelines, they begin on the left and end on the right. The horizontal length of the image conveys an uninterrupted and fluid measurement of a brief span of time, varying in duration from 10 seconds up to 45 minutes. '
Don't miss out on this exhibit!

Holly Vesecky... a Floral Stylist - but the title really does not do her justice. Her work is incredible and last night I was lucky enough to have a studio tour and leave with some stunning Peonies & Dahlias (thanks Becky and Vicki). Visit her website -

Do you TMZ

Living in LA, the news of MJ's passing was prime time. TMZ was the first to report his death. When I first heard this report, far before LA Times, CNN, AP and many other outlets I was very skeptical. But we all know now, they were the breaking source.

How do you feel about this? Do you even care? Personally, I don't have much of anything nice to say about this operation....
