lawns of chocolate and lemonade

i organized things in little piles. when i feel messy i like to organize things in little piles. my piles turn into messes again, but it's the effort that counts i suppose.

my buddy meagan (aka wisdom tooth) came for a visit! here she is being rad and playing a little show before we watched documentaries outside.

mimi bought a table at the zine symposium! it was pretty last minute when we talked about it (night before), but graham and i had some zines, so i went, sold/traded some ghost guides, saw friends, pulled in some zine loot (note julia's extra fantastic ariadne auf naxos comics), almost starved to death, but then got a big falafel and felt much better. i walked back home across the hawthorne bridge and felt very happy to live in such a beautiful city. i wish portland summers would last forever sometimes.

love, rebecca

p.s. it is in the hundreds this week and we have absolutely no ac, anyone want to take me to a river so i can jump in with all my clothes on?

where the watermelons grow

"angela" is probably one of the most distressing, quiet, and beautiful films i have ever seen in my life. i just watched it today.

if we were made of cellophane

things i like lately

*pictures of other people's cereal, i sure love cereal!
*making drawing stories (aka comics i guess) i'll probably either make into another booklet much like my ghost guide, or never show anyone ever.
*taking pictures of my hand.

i sure like drawing and photographing hands
*the ghost of steven foster song! i have apparently been living under a rock that all the cool kids lived above for the past 10 years, because until 2 nights ago i never heard of the squirrel nut zippers (named after a candy), who are quickly becoming my new favorite band. everything about this video and song is perfect!!!

it's saturday! this means it's a party day! a day for parties! i am sure i will think of something.

love, rebecca

p.s. i finally am getting a printer/scanner, though i am still using graham's computer. baby steps.

lucky old sun

new favorite cover of a favorite song

and good news! these blackberries under our kitchen window that were mercilessly (and for no good blessed reason) chopped down last summer are growing back real fast.

love, rebecca
p.s. shop updates are coming next week, new lockets, brooches and prints (also, magic sticks)!

from caves

speaking of crystals i listed a new locket, glowing bats in a crystal cave. i also listed an original painting!
