"sorry I ain't pretty like a magazine girl.................

but I'll sing you songs and I'll make you art........" better for dying by Mary - Charlotte Young .
You can check her out for your self here for her solo act "magic girl" and here for her group act with a brilliant musicain named Matt Williams "the violet masons". Justin fell in love with them a while back when they played regularly at the Green Turtle Tavern, and got me in to them also. Charlotte had moved to Texas some months back, so we where so excited when they put out the bulletin that they would be back here in Georgia around his birthday time. So yesterday was the day, Justin happened to get a lucky day off, so we got ourselves dressed up for a night out with good music and headed up to the Oyster Shack (it was a really cool pirate pub, and they had good seafood) in St. Simons just to hear them play one more time. They were magnificent just as I remembered. I just love Charlotte's voice and her song writing is tops, and the things Matt can do with his guitars and mixers is just amazing. So now I'm home with some new cd's and wishing I could hear them live again just one more time before she leaves.

oh p.s. i borrowed the picture from "the violet masons" my space page because i for got my camera yesterday. xoxo, heather

Project Runway

I love that show! So after watching it all day yesterday, it's no surprise I was inspired to create this little beauty. I've had this dress form for like two years now and I'm so happy to have her done.

It was a nice distraction from my work that is waiting for me on the kitchen table. Although I'm sure all you ladies in etsy land would like me to finish ;)
Anyway I'd better make this on short so i can get back to work. But I'll leave you in true heather style and show you my lunch :p Grilled Cheese and Vegetable Soup

we liked our lunch.
