art, books & bubbly

July 13, 2012

I'm really excited about how my newest piece is shaping up.
 I hope to finish it up this weekend with a few other projects I've got splayed all over the kitchen counters.  Poor Matthew, our house is always strewn with toys or my projects.
I can never seem to get them both picked up at the same time.
In other news, I've bought book 3 of both Shades of Grey and The Hunger Games. 
I'm hoarding them until I have something else to move on to.
Do tell, what are we reading now?

 I also plan to do a little champagney sipping tonight.
For no reason at all.
But that bubbly is a calling my name.
In truth, I have hardly really been drinking at all lately.  Since Tagg was born.  Which really means since before I was pregnant.  Nothing for maybe a few weeks?  And not sure before that.  I'm just so tired at night and quite frankly waking up is hard enough without the added head pang from too much wine.
Now that I've confessed that will y'all still be my friend?
Maybe take me out for drinks and fix this sober problem?

  1. No doubt. I had a wine incident last night. I must confess. Love the images here AND your art. OF course!

  2. I can remedy the sober problem asap. Drive down to Charleston for a girls night. champgy or "Champs" as Heather would say on RHOC is calling my name too. Love the painting. and please dish what you are reading next. I am still on book 2 of the Shades of Grey. A friend recommend The American Wife to me so we shall see:)

  3. i think its turning up great. love the suggestion of fifty shades of gray lol! I am your newest follower! I cannot wait to read more of your posts and hope that maybe you can return the favor and follow The Preppy Student. I always comment for every comment left on my page and hope to start a friendly relationship with your wonderful blog!

  4. That painting ROCKS!!! I'm really loving the pop of navy in there!!!

  5. Good grief woman, you nail it every time! Last night I made chicken piccata and the only thing keeping me from a glass of Chardonnay (ok, yes, aside from being pregnant) was that I knew even a little bit would have me waking up with a blaring headache. This heat doesn't help either. I've never wanted an ice cold margarita so badly before in my life!

  6. Girl I am dying over how much I love the new painting!!! And I am with Nat if anybody can fix your sober problems you know were the girls to do it ! Agreed on the freakin tired thing!

  7. That sure is a pretty painting sweetie. And we'll help with that dry stretch in a couple of weeks when you come down for a visit. We should be in our new house... porch drinks!

  8. Good grief! If nothing else, toast to that ridiculously good painting you just created! But invite me over first.

  9. love the new art. and lord knows be careful with the champagne after your vacay from it! ( i cannot stand when heather from RHOOC who says Champs, like shes bringing it back, but it was never here...)

  10. Your new painting is gorgeous Julia! You are so talented. Happy Friday to you and hope you have a great weekend.

  11. Shut up is that art gorg!!! I'm reading Andy Cohen's book right now and it is hilarious. Love him. Enjoy your bubbly. I'll shake up my G&T tonight to make it bubble in your honor. :)

  12. Friday night + Champagne = A perfect night in my book!

  13. I haven't read anything since 50 shades...it took up so much of my life I had to take a breather! :) Have a glass for me...and happy weekend!

  14. loving your painting. damn, girl, you're talented! I recently started following you from the One Room Challenge and love your blog! If you get some bubbly in your system and feel like perusing the blogosphere, jump over to my blog, vividhuehome.blogspot.com

    I have fallen in love with all of the colors you use in your decorating (and obviously your art too)!

  15. Let's do wine sometime soon. I still want to come to a Thursday playdate...we just need to stop traveling.
