This afternoon, like every Friday afternoon since about 2006, I spend my time with a good friend, Emily. We met years ago while working in the Barnes and Noble cafe together, really, chocolate and coffee are such great promotions of friendship, don't ya think?
I am trying to get her to make some more art, so I can show her how to put it up on Etsy. I know she will be a hit. She makes wreaths (people, they're huge, and I know they would sell for at least a hundred dollars at our summer Farmer's Market), renders photography, and is just about the best home decorator in my age bracket! She can take a tattered chest, a bouy, a plain canvas, and some seashells and MAKE IT LOOK LIKE MARTHA CAN! I'm telling you she's just that good. I set up two blogs for her tonight, her 'business' side is called Cavallo Creations, and her 'party' side will stay anonymous for now. One can't very well be anonymous if you're trying to sell something! Hope she likes the new do'.
Here's a picture of the troublemaker on her weddin' day, along with a few shots Stefan and I took:
