key to a girl’s heart.

the san diego chocolate gods shined down yesterday.  i was out in pittsburgh’s strip district.  and inside the cutest shop was my favorite chocolate that used to only be blocks away, eclipse chocolate!  crazy flavors like gingerbread crumb, mango masala, and sweet basil mint, matched with sea salt – yum! 


holy shitake.

only in western pennyslvania can you be on your way to a cherry orchard, when you get stopped in your tracks by the vintage landmind of your dreams. we seriously almost crashed when i yelled, STOP!  in prep for the upcoming table decor shoot, this was fate at it’s best.  20 bucks will buy you this.

life has changed.  somewhere between deciding to take a breath of fresh air and sadly leave san diego for austin, my car skipped across both and headed east.  for now, and depending on the day, the suitcase calls pittsburgh and new york city home.  ever read “city mouse and country mouse”? well that’s about where i’m at. making the best of this little adventure; the paint brushes have been unpacked, the canvas is prepped, and below are some of the modern birds that are providing inspiration.
