NEW - week peek - peek week - #15

...so...is this week peek thing a good thing?
It has made me pause, take in the whirl of days and try to convey something of what they held...large or small, significant or not, I treasure each one.

Thanks for stopping by as I link up with all those fab gals via Life Rearranged...

xxoo and here's my peek...

I got to my old hood this week for a committee meeting at NYU...Greenwich Village always makes my heart happy, it holds so many great memories...
This is the first teddy I ever purchased from soft sculpture artist and dear friend Pat Murphy, still my fave, she sits right behind me as I work, it's like having Pat watch over me....
Finished the series...WHEW! Now I can get some sleep, was staying up extra late to read....
The work of Debrina Pratt always inspires me to think more gently and to take in the little details....this piece just arrived and once unpacked I just had to keep it insight for the day...
I went to shoot Kathy's parlor and dining room for a piece in "Victorian Homes" magazine...Kath...Ro would say, "Don't touch the hutch!" It looks fab, I love the transferware...
Sweet, sassy and oh so cool Becky has invited me to a party with special guest Anna Corba, oh how I hope to get there....just look at this invite!!!
Say "hi" to Hillary, Ben and Heath from FOLK Magazine....they visited Warwick and we took a drive to get some ice cream on the mountain....
Oh my Debbee, you slay me with your winsome pieces...this little "Fairy GodMother" is among by current faves...she is one of the artist's special editions for Mother's Day 2012...
I feel the angels do need to be kept close...
Likewise my love goes out to a family who has experienced terrible loss this week...
My thoughts and prayers to all who loved little Evan...all of Warwick will miss him...
And in making the days that we each have count, we took a family adventure to the new Smithsonian Air & Space in Chantilly, VA...
Up at 4am to make the drive and be the first folks there when it opened for the day, we had the place to ourselves...
If you saw "Transformers", yes this is the Blackbird that was a former Decepticon, if you have not dea what I am talking about, ask a kid...
I don't have a decent recipe for gluten-free pie crust so I will just fantasize...
...who needs a personal pie maker anyway???!!

I remind each and every day, I have everything I need....
xxoo Jen
