Ungrammed Instas

I was looking through my phone and found these photos that either just never made the cut or I forgot to post them on Instagram. So, I figured I'd share here. They feel so representative of the fall so far, which I have really been enjoying. It has been surprisingly busy though! Not just with work, but when it rains it really pours and things always seem to happen all at once, huh? On that check list is the task of moving studios. Yes, just as stressful and difficult as looking for a new apartment and moving your home. But, I've finally found the space, so now to tediously pack up all of my tons of very fragile items and transport them to their new home. It'll feel great once it's done- feels so daunting now!- but I'm looking forward to the fresh start and a new take on a new space. Also, I'm going apple picking this weekend and I love that. Tangent over, pretty pictures below.

1/ Super pretty pumpkin/squash/things all at the farmers market now.
2/ A recent Saturday morning coffee. The Saturday morning ritual is roll out of bed at 8 or 9, treat myself to a decaf latte, then meander over to the farmers market. Favorite part of my week.
3/ A variation on another image that I did post a couple weeks ago.
4/ Me and Alice being twinsies.
5/ Coffee shop corner. Feels so exotic.
6/ Cat sexy eyes.

Everyday Art Objects

Melody Hansen, the uber creative artist behind my professional logo, has a Society 6 store filled with all sorts of different items that her work has been applied to. I particularly love the iPhone cases and throw pillows, though the totes are really cute too. There's even a shower curtain! This is such a neat idea, such a cool way to integrate art with daily objects.

Meat, the Book

Meat by Pat LaFrieda came out last month! I am so happy to have been a part of this book. Pat is a really nice guy and our team was great, photography by Evan Sung and food styling by Suzanne Lenzer. It turns out I had a few images kicking around on my phone from the shoot last year, so I pulled together this little behind the scenes post for you all. It is, of course, very prop focused. Whoops. But there is one image of food! It's of a sort of spaghetti pie that I highly recommend, it was one of my favorite recipes. I couldn't stay away when it came off set. Meaty, crispy, yummy. There are plenty of other recipes too, but about half of the book is dedicated to butchery tips and techniques. A guide for the fledging home butcher. If you've ever wanted to take your meat preparations to the next level, dive into this one like a textbook.
