MY SUMMER FLING

MY SUMMER FLING

the long day wanes: the slow moon climbs...
A. Lord Tennyson

it's a ghost town in these parts and i can hear the crickets courting more than ever.

the time is near and bittersweet to say the least. it's been a delight!

thanks for the memories and for all you hopeless romantics i'll see you in september. xo




















my little august bloom i will always love you even when i'm feeling blue...

CAN YOU SAY DAHLIA?

CAN YOU SAY DAHLIA?

The Aztecs gathered and cultivated the dahlia for food, ceremonies, as well as decorative purposes, and the long woody stem of one variety was used for small pipes. at least that's what i hear.

These lovelies will be making there way into my floral creations over
the next few months. Even Paul Cezanne found them a worthy subject.

i saw some amazing black dahlias at the farmers market in amagansett
a few weeks ago and only wished i took a picture. but my personal favorite, well i bet you can guess...


























and to all my leo friends, virgo is now on the rise so happy birthday
to the big 'D' whose birthday falls today. oopster sends his love.  xoxo

btw, the wedding march is on and you haven't seen the last of the d.....s

DO YOU LIKE PIE?

DO YOU LIKE PIE?
















the kitchen smells pretty amazing right now. i've decided to mix some fresh summer fruits from the market...a medley of sorts and turn the oven on, which is something i've been avoiding during these hot and humid days of summer. i love being in the kitchen and it felt good to be whipping up a new creation. just trying to get back to normal after a rough week which left me pretty raw and emotionally drained with the passing of a dear friend much much too soon. too tragic for words really...

on a much lighter note, i spent a lovely afternoon celebrating my mom's birthday last friday. being with my folks wrapped in a blanket of warm affection and joy always does me good and feeling blessed by such a happy occasion the fog seemed to lift a bit.



















a few things worth mentioning:

CocoRosie is gearing up for september and october weddings and in the throws of updating the website. i am looking forward to fall flowers and what is better than nyc in the fall, nothing compares...well maybe tuscany! but still i am not prepared for summer to move on just yet. i treasure these long days and know that they are fleeting ever so quickly. the next season will be upon us before we know it and then there is, dare i say...winter. yikes!















































abitofweddinginspiration

i've also created an adjunct page to my current blog which will feature mostly visuals and quotes. this will allow for more inspiration to flow hopefully and not muck up my current page. you can find more loveliness if you mosey over to arosebud.tumblr.com. no, i really didn't need a new blog, my third, but who's counting...why not add more to an already full plate.

my shopgirl summer is also drawing to a close. i've met so many wonderful ladies and made some lovely new friends, as well as drowning in beautiful flowers week after week. what more can a girl ask for? well...don't ask? i will miss it all, especially the afternoon iced lattes and oh oh the chocolate cloud*.



























































































enjoy the rest of the week y'all. tomorrow promises plenty of sunshine and blue skies.

i'll be at the beach soaking up those rays, winter far far from my thoughts...

*chocolate, chocolate and more chocolate 
make this the most intense chocolate cookie ever.

from la to nyc, so lovely.

blueberry cobbler, my inspiration.

and like a fine wine, fall 2011.

I AM IN A PLACE I DON'T EVEN CALL HOME

I AM IN A PLACE I DON'T EVEN CALL HOME


Shall you cry because roses have thorns, or rejoice because thorns have roses?


-unknown


When the heart grieves over what is has lost,
the spirit rejoices over what it has left - Sufi Epigram
sometimes the feeling goes away for awhile and then
it seems to come back.
What if nothing exists and we're all in somebody's dream? - Woody Allen
I restore myself when i'm alone - Marilyn Monroe


Nothing can be as true as fairy wisdom.
It is as true as sunbeams. - Douglass Jerrold







The thing about miracles is that they really do happen - G.K. Chesterton
Did you ever in that wonderland of adolescence,
ever, quite... - Truman Capote




If we really think that home is elsewhere and that this life is
"a wandering to find home," why should we not look forward
to the arrival?
