A friend met me in St. Louis toward the end of my trip.

Here I am at a Cardinals game looking the part. Budweiser and freaker in hand. I’m such a sports fan.

Did you know people really stand up and stretch during the 7th inning stretch?

We had kick ass bloody marys at Rooster. Voted best breakfast and in St. Louis.

Looking  at the field notes itinerary .

and yummy magical black bean crepes.

This is outside of the St. Louis art museum. It was free and really beautiful.

My favorite exhibit was William Kentridge, “Visual Musing.”

I took about 25 pictures of his work before they asked me stop. Apparently, you couldn’t take pictures of this particular exhibit.










This is Calder ? At least that’s what the title said.

I want to put all of rubyassata‘s stuff in these.

We stayed at Dwell 912, modern bed and breakfast .

Front porch love.

The whole apartment was decorated with local art and vintage furnishings.

View from the balcony.

Looking at things this way.

Amazing 100 year old spiral staircase to the upstairs bedroom.

I may have had some drinks .  .  .

Living/dining room.

In the morning we had an organic breakfast made by owner Jenn from these chickens. Super cool.

You should really check out Dwell 912 if you are in the St. Louis area.

So. . . I should be in Wilmington right now BUT my great grandmother past way yesterday morning. She was 92 and will be missed.

Five more days in Missouri . Leaving Tuesday.  Miss my North Carolina so bad. Miss Courtney so bad.  Just super miss.

This is the start of a new clutch. This lining is totally 1950’s housewife. It’s actually from a large vintage dress. I’m hoping to get a hobo/messenger bag lining out of this dress, too. We shall see. . .

and here is where I cut a square out of that same dress for a school project.

This piece is only 3×3 inches. I took this picture with my cell phone from my hotel window in Paris and then, you know, pasted random books and things on it.
