The Sketch Book

tassel earrings and pink arugula

When it comes to thinking about buying four hundred dollar costume jewelry earrings, you have to ask yourself two questions:

1. who do you think you are?

and 2. which color is most practical?

These are the types of things I am working through in my new sketch book. But really, what color would you get if you had an unlimited tassel budget? Not that either of us do, but a sketchbook is a place for dreaming right?

Speaking of, last night I dreamed my plane went down in an emergency landing into the ocean, but it was also distinctly taking place in Paris (which, yes, I know is not in the ocean)

Everything was very organized in the dream. I remembered to grab my passport before exiting. And the nice pilot even let me get back on the plane briefly to grab my very attractive pointed toe nude flats with laser cutouts.

What does it mean???! That I’m crazy?

Probably. Here’s something else I sketched in the new book. This is definitely the work of a crazy person…

I can’t stop thinking about pink arugula. I want an entire room painted with pink arugulas. Or at least some over sized throw pillows.

  • Inslee,
    I had a dream last night that a plane crashed into the pool I was in, it was a real size plane, but somehow fit into the pool. So obviously whatever yours means, mine must be a similar idea.

  • I ask question number one to myself all the time. it goes- Who do you think you are? Answer always is #notkimkardashian. followed by: put down the {insert splurge} i.e. $1200 handbag.

  • Gold will always go with anything! I hate flying, I hate plane crash dreams. Ugh! But it really is the safest way to travel.

  • Now I want Pink Arugula Throw Pillows. They would be spectacular.

  • THE GOLD! but then again… if we are dreaming … why not both?

  • I LOVE the Turquoise-y colour! Love love! But I’m not sure it would suit me. How about Black? Damn black. I always go back to Black! (and I’m not quoting Amy Whinehouse… rip)

    Dreams are a funny thing, but I think they can mean whatever you want them to. Look beyond the obvious, but also look at the obvious. Lol. If you’re dream is crazy… how do you explain dreaming you were a turtle? with a wiser older turtle, and a boy turtle who was on his way to doing something bad?! OK. totally waffling,

    Happy Thursday!

  • P.S. forgot to say… I LOVE YOUR ARUGULAs!!! (and for some reason, i love that word. it sounds exotic)

  • FIRST…the earrings are gorgeous! I’m going to need to start an earring jar $

    SECOND…arugulas are so cute.

    THIRD…plane crash dreams really don’t let you get a good nights sleep. Look on the bright side…YOU MADE IT. And so did your gorgeous shoes.

    gold are gorgeous but expected. Turquoise so stunning!! They get my vote. I have repetitive dreams of preparing for a [water] ditching on, of course, Pan Am…..
