Just Got Back from New Mexico! August 17, 2009

It’s been over a week since my last blogpost, and I have a good excuse.  I was on a roadtrip vacay to New Mexico.  We went to Albuquerque, Madrid, Santa Fe, and on the way back we stopped in Marfa, TX.

My favorite part of the trip was Tinkertown Museum which was on the Turquoise Trail between Albuquerque and Santa Fe.  Tinkertown Museum is a folk art museum of one man’s life work.  His name is Ross Ward, and he worked/lived in the museum from 1964 until his death in 2002.

I have been obsessed with the Hello Sandwich blog for the past couple weeks, today she introduced me to the mysterious letter project, where a couple of artists sent handwritten letters to an entire town.

Did you have a good holiday weekend?  I had a wonderful weekend in Denver, CO at Jenny and Siet’s wedding.  It was wonderful and festive, and you could see fireworks going off during the reception.  I promise to post photos soon.

In the meantime…

I saw these wonderful mobiles by Puka Puka:

I just met up with an old friend, Angela Barrow, last night.  I know Angela from our days living in Richmond, Virginia.  Angela moved to New York City around the same time I moved to Austin.  Since then she has started her own accessories line called Cheek-ie.  I checked out the site this morning and it is absolutely fabulous.  Check out some of the goods:
