Today I went thrift store shopping with my Best Friend. We took the bus up Georgia Ave and then hit one on 14th and Spring. Later I was reminded of a lady I had met once with Philippa Hughes. Running around one day, she asked if I didn't mind her making a quick stop. That stop was into an amazing little house full of some of the most amazing vintage clothes I have ever seen. Dresses, hats. coats...a dream. Here are a few of my favorites..... > 1940s RED HOT Bonnet 1960s Black & Gray Stripe Day Dress 4
Before we left Chapel Hill, we stopped at the North Carolina Botanical Gardens. Their carnivorous plant collection is known as one of the best in the Southeast. Numerous species of pitcher plants, sundews, and butterworts are found in the southeastern United States as are Venus' flytraps. Every fall the display gardens at the North Carolina Botanical Garden sprout a crop of unique creations by North Carolina artists. A group of one-of-a kind sculptures placed amid the native wildflowers and shrubs delight garden visitors for two months.
The Carolina Inn is a beautiful and well-known icon on the UNC campus in downtown Chapel Hill that architecturally represents both the colonial and antebellum South. The 1924 design incorporates late 18th century elements from George Washington's Mount Vernon. Now listed on the National Register of Historic Places and a member of the prestigious National Trust's Historic Hotels of America, The Carolina Inn offers an atmosphere of elegance and the spirit of tradition. Furnished with antiques, North Carolina made furniture, interesting artwork and historical images, this hotel on the UNC campus has offered guests the finest lodging, fine dining, and excellent hospitality for more than eight decades. I can't wait to make my own bow out of towles in my bathroom at home! It's made out of two wash clothes, one is folded four times into a skinny rectangular band and the other is folded like an acordion shape. Wrap the band around the acordion, and tuck behind tuck towles already hanging. Super Cute!
Honfleur Gallery is hosting LIKENESS, the brainchild of DC based photographer, Joshua Yospyn. The exhibition includes twenty artists (ten photographers + ten visual/street artists) with an end result of ten original portraits + ten interpretations of that portrait.
The visual/street artists’ will present their interpretation of the original photographed displayed side by side the photographers image.
Last week was the start of Mee Moo Art Happy. We painted and leared about what Jackson Pollock painted with, where he painted and how to drip, splat and blop the paint. This was artist of the week! Today we began making Alexander Calder mobiles. Super fun! More info and pictures here.
Tonight I get to go see one of my all time favorites, Joan Baez. I used to have this poster in my closet in High School. Note, I went to HS on a military base and my father was in the Army...but he was also the one that introduced me to folk music. Once I saw her sing in an old castle in Germany, tonight at the Strathmore! Can't wait!
