okay all…
this is my last night before i leave the west coast. in california, but didn’t make it out to los angeles before dark…
i have been absolutely humbled by the beauty and kindness of strangers on this trip.
after austin, we stayed a night in amarillo, tx. dinner was amazing…i had bbq brisket at the country barn. check out their menu.

there is also an incredible donut shop there, called…the donut shop. i didn’t get one of these for breakfast, but in hindsight should’ve.

the weather in texas was miserable; i have never seen so much fog in my life! but as we neared the border with new mexico, things started looking up.

yes, things got much brighter…

we skirted through to the painted desert. let me just say that if you have the opportunity to come here, DO. it took my breath away many times.

and i fell in love with petrified wood again…loved it when i was a kid, for some reason.

and then on to california, so that i could catch my plane today… :)

I adore the second photograph! So hippie romantic. I know this may be off subject, but I was shopping at the Free People store in Glendale and must say that I LOVE the tunes being played in the store! Is there any possible way to get the list of the tunes playing? I'd really appreciate it :)

herbert pfostl

i found herbert pfostl’s book “to die no more” about a year ago…somehow i can’t help but visit his work every couple weeks…it inspires me beyond belief.

his blog is very intelligent, thoughtful and just plain perfect, too…

america continues to inspire and enchant.
since i last wrote, my friends and i were in virginia. our next stop was asheville, nc. this is rebel, my backseat travel companion.

our blue ridge mt morning was unbelievable.

from there, we ended up in new orleans. thanks to aforementioned cat, we got a sweet pet-friendly hotel room just outside the french quarter.

and then…we hit austin. and while we were at dinner, my friend spotted an aspiring designer – christie – who was wearing one of our knit tops. she loves fp, and i appreciate that she let me take her pic for the blog. :)

be good! more later…

Heh, your backseat companion looks scared. Or maybe that's just a wide eyed cat thing. I have two cats and I can't even get them to stay in the house, much less a back seat. Cool cat!

I'm so jealous of your road trip adventures! i'm itching to plan one now :)

monday quote

“the art of living does not consist in preserving and clinging to a particular mood of happiness, but in allowing happiness to change its form without being disappointed by the change; for happiness, like a child, must be allowed to grow up.”
- charles langbridge morgan

i absolutely love this quote, i think i'm going to make a mural of it on my wall ;D

copy – desert

luren, who used to work for our store display team, is curating a show at copy gallery
it’s called desert. and it will probably leave you thirsty for more…
sorry, that sounds silly.
if you’re in philly, make it part of your first friday festivities. there, that’s better…
artists from philadelphia and los angeles are creating sculptures inspired by plants and structures of the desert using commonly found materials.

copy gallery, 319 n 11th st. 3rd floor. 6-11pm.

roadtripping

hi all…
this is the first chance i’ve had to post some pix…as of tonight, i am in tuscaloosa, alabama. it has been absolutely incredible thus far; i am already planning my next road trip. but anyway…just a few images to share.
first, waiting for my ride on my porch. wearing some sweet converse that i think are going on sale in the october catalog…not an advertisement for ‘em, but they look great with everything. :)

our first (and maybe only) toll booth operator…definitely has the most coiffed ‘do i’ve ever seen in one of those booths.

this is on the road in virginia…reminded me of maxfield parrish or something…
trip3.jpg
we capped off our first night in harrisonburg, va…where they served some of the best bar food i ever ate – this is a gouda grilled cheese from the blue nile.

more later…hope everyone’s happy. :)
