flubugs & potluck

i am currently recovering from the flu and am quite tired, but feel much better
(candied ginger, theraflu and lavender tea work miracles). since i am better i am looking forward to the following:
*valentines!
*french macaroons!
*drawing!
*tonight's potluck @ a NE buddyroos house!

i baked this rosemary bread. i have mentioned it in the past, but it's really good and easy so here it is again:
y'all will need
4 cups flour
2 heaping tablespoons rosemary
2 heaping tablespoons of active dry yeast
1 tablespoon of salt
1 tablespoon of sugar
1 cup soymilk
1 cup water
1/4 cup olive oil

heat up milk, water and olive oil on the stove until just barely above room temperature. pour into dry ingrediants and stir until it's a perfect, sticky little blob. cover the dough in your mixing bowl with a towel and let it rise for about 50 minutes (it should have doubled in size). when the time's up, stir the dough down and pour it into a greased loaf pan. set the oven at 350 degrees and cook for about 35-45 minutes (depending on your oven)

also i am finally watching marie antoinette after hearing about it for ages. i absolutely LOVE IT. the rooms the rooms! now i want to cover everything i own in ornate gold things and cupcakes!

love, rebecca

p.s.
happy valentines day everyone :)

pretty things i want/need


this egon schiele print

warm socks (my feet are so cold this winter!)

this violet scarf

man shirts! they are comfortable and you can wear them as dresses if you are short like me, and always have extra buttons and pockets for pine cones and coins and jellybeans (or whatever it is you use your pockets for).

boy howdy do i want to read this.

camera. this one. this beautiful camera that i cannot believe is digital. give me it.

i always want microns, xylophones, stonehenge paper and root beer so i suppose those are givens.

but most of all i want a bunny.

*sigh* if wishes were fishes!

oh! and since i am on the subject of pretty things, here is something beautiful: the quilts of ian hundley

i cannot stop looking at them. they are perfect.

thus concludes my ridiculous post.

love, rebecca

bleh and currents


i made a new friend. this is a "lamb prey". they are like lampreys but are cute and fuzzy like lambs instead! they also attract magic lavender diamonds. i want one (lamb prey, not a diamond).

i feel like dying so this is what i have been drinking. nothing tastes better to me at the moment.
also i am writing a new instructional booklets like my ghost guides, but this time not about ghosts! many more details to come soon. i got some new paper and i am watching my work change a bit, it's a little scary, but nice. it is weird to see your hands make something new and not even know when the change came. i am working so much bigger, but i feel it's gearing up to be simpler, still me but grown up more perhaps? i think my thoughts are becoming more organized. it's refreshing to only focus on one thing and feeling because before my paintings were so thick with a million things and feelings.
by the by i am in an awesome show at gallery 1988 on friday in san francisco. if you're near sutter street stop on by :) i will have some new paintings (including some new big ones that involve me stuck on wicked mountains and on calm rivers with ghost sails, pictures to come soon).

and now i leave you with my one of my favorite people, bessie smith.

love, rebecca
