Wednesday’s have always been a favorite of mine. Good things happen. DailyCandy mentioned Gadora Wilder’s “Animal Prints” on a Wednesday. YoungHouseLove posted their “Burger” portrait on Hump Day. And for the past many weeks this Wednesday’s child works out her woes by lacing into her old-school skates, slipping into another alter-ego, and rolling with the Texas Rollergirls Rec-n-Rollerderby™ league.
Tomorrow’s Hump Day promises to deliver a good time, too. The lovely Ladies at SPRUCE are hosting a pre-Valentine’s Day fête with Tracy Tenpenny Jewelry and Megan Summerville Lingerie. Cannot. Wait.
Gadora stopped by SPRUCE’s North Lamar locale last week. I finally visited The Sprucettes myself. Lovely, lovely women. I asked how they’d feel about me painting a few watercolors of the furniture they re-upholster in their shop… they said yes! Here is the first in the “Still Life with Settee” series…
“Stark white upholstery (faux leather, natch) dramatically highlights the butterfly shape of the rich dark wood frame while the delicately carved Victorian detailing inserts an element of tenderness, a distinguishing characteristic of any true hero.” A phenomenal piece, the White Knight Victorian Sofa is available through their store or Etsy shop. The watercolor is available here.
