ODE TO GENINNE Z.


I have written about artist Gennine Zlatkis many times prior on my former Blahg, she of the bird fancy and extraordinary hand carved stamp abilities.  I have long admired her interior aesthetic and her creativity seems to know no bounds. Today I saw her work available at Urban Outfitter's which made me want to drop by her blog to see what she has been up to.  To start she and her family have a beautiful new home which her husband made (plus most of the furniture) it has such achingly gorgeous light that I felt paroxysms of envy every time I viewed more, which I could not stop myself because of said achingly gorgeousness.  It seems the whole family is blessed with creativity in spades.  Did I mention that Gennine lives in what seems like the most perfectly quaint Colonial town in Mexico?  Which makes me feel like an armchair adventuress with each click of my mouse.  Then I discovered that she is hosting a workshop in said quaint town, which I can only dream of attending but perhaps you have been saving your pretty pennies for just such an opportunity?

I do hope this weekend finds you flexing your own creative muscle, there seems to be a plethora of craft projects to do this holiday season and I have already started on a glittered woodland menagerie that I was hoping to unveil this week, but I had a bit of a craft disaster.  Let me just leave you on this note if you are going to glitter plastic figurine's use ultrafine glitter and not chunky German glass glitter unless of course you want your glittered animals to look like they have a severe case of the disco mumps.

What pretty feathers and furniture and built-in shelving! And top it all off with a gorgeous dog! I love it all.

Kate, I know! Her dog Turbo has his own blog, so silly + sweet:) Julie I think that she has a how-to on how to makes those stones, I think they are pretty cool and look rather organic and chic versus too crafty, if you know what I mean. I so want to try it.

Post a Comment

I am honored + thrilled that you are leaving me a note! Please know your sweet thoughts are always welcomed and greatly appreciated.

xx,
