Winter Calm

Our relationship with this blog is dysfunctional.  There, we’ve said it.  We cannot promise to be better at keeping our little blog up to date, because we don’t make promises we cannot keep.

However, we’d like to sign off the year with these gorgeous photos from the very talented Megan Clouse of our little taxi, preparing for the cozy winter ahead.  It’s been a busy year and we’re all looking forward to the calmer, colder months, characterized (in our house, at least) by warm fires, homemade vermouth, stodgy desserts and with some luck, rainy days and a few consecutive days off!

Musical Interlude

Hello, party people!

This post will be straying a bit from the typical floral chit chat – though only a little, into the realm of a complimentary art – groovy music!

Team Venus, formed by Chris Vibberts – who’s previous band played at our wedding five years ago and who once slept in my childhood bed (long story) – and Alia Beeton, are in the middle of a big, exciting campaign to raise money for their album Love On a Faultline. There’s also a music video in the works for the first single “My Mister Grey”.  Hold up?!  Whaaat?  A music video?!  That’s RAD!  These guys are cooler than Jeff Spicoli’s checkered vans, man!!

So please consider donating to their campaign at before Sept 25th (2014, obvi) and all new contributions will be DOUBLED!  Now’s that’s a Karma deal y’all!!  AND, once you contribute, you’ll be able to casually drop into any conversation how you make donations to the arts and stuff.  Your friends will finally know how cultured and sophisticated you are!

This is how they’ll look when they find out you helped.  And hey, if you get in there early you might even befriend them before they’ve acquired their magical powers that everyone knows is brought on by fame and Grammys!!
