It's not you, It's me

La PĂȘche Layered necklace,
from the very difficult to photograph Spring collection.

Technical difficulties but happily inundated with shop orders and bridal consultations while all of my attempts to get some decent images of the latest work seem thwarted by evil techie forces. My camera is acting very, uhh, dark and my computer has a new thing where it quits when photoshop gets cookin'. wtf? So I've been keeping it lo-fi, barely a recorded moment to be found but these.
*Dropped my phone on the tracks of the 7 train in Woodside and had it retrieved by a nice guy in an orange flourescent vest.
*Missed my bus as I was playing "word mole" on my blackberry. No one even told me, "hey lady! the bus is here! Stop playing word mole!" Where is civic duty when you need it?
*Sunday, Jim threw me an Easter birthday celebration to beat the band in the backyard. It was like summer outside and we drank pink prosecco, my new spirit drink.
*Nights I've been reading, watching movies (ok and reality tv--I'm not that cultured) and cooking up some springtime delights eaten on the almost cleaned up patio.
*By day Bonbon's getting ready for opening day of the Brooklyn Flea at Fort Greene this Saturday.
*And presently, it's 88 degrees hot in NYC today and all the trees are aflutter with fleurs and buds.
*Oh, and my fig is figging. Now, that's some news.

HURRAH for spring getting going for Bonbon and the fig. Would an antique wooden dress form make photographing easier? And HAPPY BIRTHDAY, sweet Deb!
