Coco de Mer have been selling my plates for a few years now in their stores in Los Angeles, London and more recently in NYC. I was happy to find out yesterday Christina Aguilera became a trixie Coco customer and purchased a couple of plates from their Melrose store. Her privacy considered I will not divulge the words she chose but they were very naughty indeed. How very fitting given that new racy look and video shoot of hers. Wouldn't it be cool if some naughty china made it's debut via a Christina video- hey my fingers are crossed! Check out that Melrose store topiary- every garden courtyard should have one!
One very good reason to get the Etsy daily mailouts is you see stuff that might normally take you a month of sundays to find. GiddySpinster is one such shop. I really should have kept those old stripper heels of mine and put them to better use...I do wonder where she gets all of those discarded ankle snappers but maybe we shouldn't pry and just enjoy the classy prickliness of it all.
Retrowhale recently a featured artist on Etsy creates great detailed artworks on a small scale with movie themes. I bought the Big Lebowski set of coasters but have put them up on the wall where they won't be damaged by careless shenanigans after partaking- bound to happen ya see. A collection of Movie Directors might be next, but it's so hard to choose 'cos the likeness is remarkable and the choice so interesting. The Dude would be most impressed I'm guessing- go shop there right now!
RIP Chase aka Chuppy, aka the Wonderdog.... Our family dog died yesterday aged 15 1/2 that's about 90+ human years. Not from old age but as a result of being run over up at our boatshed, her fave place. The last day of our holiday we were wondering if this was going to be her last summer up on the Kaipara, given her advancing years. Partially blind and deaf and some arthritis in the back legs meant she didn't hear the car start up and didn't move in time even though the driver reversed slowly... Five last gasps and she gave in to the inevitable facing the wharf her fave bait scrounging place. Adios amigo, you were a great companion for 15 years and I will miss our walks together in the early morning. I hope you're in doggie heaven having a good old hoover for those leftovers, Your best mate Trix xox
I've always made stuff and wanted to be an artist from the age of 14.I made my way to Art School in the late 80s and graduated with a BFA, majoring in Sculpture. After a short exhibiting career,I quickly discovered being a full time artist doesn't pay the bills, so went the commercial route.
I've worked in graphic design, audio visual and freelance set design as well as garden design and maintenance.In the mid 90s
my boyfriend and I got married at City Hall in Manhattan New York. We eloped actually as no-one knew until we were back home.I have two children, a boy Jasper and a girl Madison,named after Madison Avenue.
