sun and shine

My great friend Annie and I took our chitlins down to Florida for a last minute girl get-away. We're quite fortunate to have such superbly awesome neighbors and friends. Our five-year-olds have grown up together and are 'best' friends, but can egg one-another on like antagonistic little sisters. Nothing a beach can't cure!

Some highlights from our sunny trip: the ringling circus museum model , the mote aquarium and the ski-a-rees.

I always dread returning home from holiday or any sort of get-away , but this time was different. my partner surprised me with freshly painted rooms, home repair and mopped floors which makes coming back to real-life quite A-OK!

Fiberglass. Animals. Shapes. Trademarks Corporation


A sampling of F.A.S.T Corporation's treasure trove of goods. After driving through the Wisconsin Dells a lot of these sculptures are alive and well. Check out my previous post from F.A.S.T's fiberglass mold graveyard. Also you may be interested in my ongoing Flickr set of roadside culture—it's a good time (at least I think).
