Mostly postal but art and other things of interest too.
Come and visit.

So, did you say you wanted to come over?

I am having a little trouble getting myself to work since the weather is so lovely....
Just sitting around my studio with all the doors open and hanging out.
Want to come on over?


I planted myself on my couch and I'm just looking at the walls...ok, and all the stuff sitting around here....


It is rare to have a lovely summery SF day of somewhere around 70 degrees. Temps are supposed to drop 20 degrees tomorrow so I am just being lazy and enjoying today...

I carted these posters home from Deyrolle in Paris.




The nesting dolls I bought in Russia. I do like souvenirs of my travels.


Uh Oh. This is the OTHER room. The messy one. But hey.....I work in there. And, when I'm not being lazy I've been really busy doing all kinds of things.

See? I have been making some teeny, tiny books. And some zines. And mail art. And a birthday surprise for a friend. And collages. And adding things to my glue book. I've got a lot going on.

And, I went to the SF Correspondence Co-Op Birthday Party on Saturday -- SEVEN years of mail art with my peeps.

But, some days, it is really nice to do almost nothing....sit around....and just enjoy the day.
Don't you agree?

SEND GOOD MAIL -- GET GOOD MAIL

  2. The one room is well worth sitting in and appreciating everything on the shelves and walls. The other room would drive me mad, since I'm a neat freak. But I would LOVE to come visit, especially since temps here are in the mid to high 90s F with heat indices of over 105 most days. I am glad you are enjoying great weather and your meal looks yummy, too. Very refreshing, in fact.

  3. Ha ha....I kind of love a good messy workspace.....You would like it even better today - the temperature is going to be 65.

  4. I understand completely. My back yard is finally at a place where I can mostly sit and enjoy it instead of working like a day laborer. In the morning, I sit and watch the birds and squirrels and their antics with an occasional bunny hopping by. I just want to sit and enjoy so I do...until the porch temp hits 90 and it just becomes too uncomfortable. Then, I go to my studio!

  5. OK, I laughed out loud at THE OTHER room. I also have one of those, but somehow it is starting to creep into other areas of the house as well! Creative stuff kind of does that. What a wonderful view and day you had.

    1. I am the same.......it does creep, doesn't it? But as soon as I clear off my work table I mess it right back up again....cannot help it. They don't call it "a creative mess" for nothing.

  6. I really enjoyed this post - particularly the OTHER room. I thought "Wow! She's just as messy (oops, I meant 'creative') as I am!" Your alfresco dining looks enticing, but it's way too hot already here in Chicago to do that.

    1. Oh yes -- just as messy....er....creative....I actually thrive in that chaos but my husband isn't thrilled....but it's MY studio. You have some real highs and lows (temperatures) in Chicago, I know.

  8. Such a lovely life!
    Good for you to just sit around and enjoy the weather- life is too short to not do that!

    1. Well...I am happy I did because it has been about 59 degrees all week now and foggy and cold.....that's why i knew I had to go for it when it was so nice. But It is supposed to be 102 in Sonoma on Saturday and I definitely prefer the cool SF weather to that. Yes, let me know if you visit SF.

  9. Love all the things you show in your house and it was so nice to see you 4 years ago. This year my sister and I are going to Spain to visit a sister in law. Have you ever been in Spain?

    1. Hi Nina -- I remember meeting you and your sister in SF. That XPF was sure a lot of fun. Yes, I have been to Spain on two recent trips. First one to Madrid, Seville and Barcelona with various day trips and the second to Bilbo and The Basque Country. I absolutely LOVE Spain. There are some cool (postage) stamp in Madrid. Where are you going to be?

  11. Dear Pamela,
    It’s been awhile since I've been over. Where has the time gone? I haven't been blogging as much lately or leaving comments as there is just not enough hours in a day.
    I so enjoy your post. Thanks for sharing all these lovely pictures with us. I especially like the pics of your creative space!

    Continue to enjoy the beautiful weather... I do exactly the same :)

    Hugs,
    Gaby

    1. Hi Gaby -- how nice to hear from you! I appreciate you taking the time to comment. I am glad I did enjoy the nice weather because we are back to fog and wind and cold here in San Francisco now.
      You are right -- there isn't enough time for everything -- but we try!
