stretching it with a little help from my friends

vintage port

i'd like to thank all of you who left messages on my birthday. You all certainly contributed to making it a special day. i tried answering everyone personally, but i couldn't get hold of some of the addresses :( Sorry .Thanks again for your good wishes.

The birthday turned into a birthweekend. Not that my mother would have enjoyed that :) Friday night after a great meal (which i won't detail because i don't want to stir jealousies LOL!) we headed home for la piece de resistance.
As part of birthday traditions in my household i opened a good port for the celebration. And being a port drinker what best than a Niepoort 1983 vintage. i still remember my trip to Porto the patterns,the shops, the atmosphere and my disappointment at not being able to visit the Niepoort loja. But the visit to Gaia in itself was a pet fantasy come true.

Saturday was also spent wining and dining. And on Sunday i dedicated the whole afternoon after brunch ( more eating, gosh these people just eat!) i treated myself to -what best?- studio time.

A whole afternoon of r+d testing these pigments that i had bought in Japan years ago, new fabrics and products and developing new design lines for my on line store fronts at Artfire and Etsy.

Great weekend indeed, even enjoyed the rain!
