through the woods and back again

Back from our Portland/Shasta trip only to leave again. We're leaving for LA tomorrow evening to shoot the first video for Hang Jones. While I'm excited, I'm also really nervous because this is super DIY and I want it to look great!

The shot above is a detail from our room at the Ace Hotel in Portland. Such a great place, I look forward to our next trip there.

new necklace, originally uploaded by *Honeychild*.

Portland was so great, as was Shasta afterwards. I have much to write about but I haven't found the time. For now here is a shot of my new necklace that Stephen got me at the Capsule Festival in Hayes Valley yesterday, by Rachael Victoria Adams of Nouveau Motley. It's one of those metal labels for old liquor bottles, and it says Bourbon. I love the repurposing of the tag as a pendant. Such a great idea!

Evan B Harris Mural at Ace Hotel

We are staying at the Ace Hotel which does not disappoint as far as design goes. I'm very happy that we're staying on the 4th floor, because as soon as we walked into the skylit stairwell we found this huge mural by Evan B. Harris. I wrote about his work earlier when I saw his show at Rare Device. I really love his style, and also found a stationery set by him at Powell's which is just a block away. Stephen and I are really loving this town, and I'll write more later. For now we are off to explore a little more. Glad to have a rainy day, as it wouldn't quite be a visit to Portland without one.

heading out of town

on the way home, originally uploaded by *Honeychild*.

We are heading out on a trip to Shasta and Portland tomorrow. I'm excited to spend some time in that northwestern town that I hardly know. We're seeing some old friends in both places, and dropping the dogs off to vacay with their best friends the Rickard girls. When we come back to pick them up they'll be primped, refreshed, and ready to rumble.

the sky glowed like neon

We took an impromptu urban hike today with the dogs. Saw some great murals, smelled some not-so-great smells, ran into some friends and stayed a while. Really starting to enjoy our time in San Francisco. Funny how things change when you just remind yourself of the impermanence of it all.

the many poses of captain clementine

there are some days that i want to just lay about like Clementine, rolling to and fro from one comfortable position to the other, waiting for the sun to come through that window.
