Nea, Eric, Thierry, Ruby, Deanna, Asheley
I have lots of names for Nea, but lately I call her Chi-chi Gonzalez, I don't know why it just fits her. Chi-chi Gonzalez sounds sassy, up for anything and maybe ready to sleep with just about anyone, which Nea definitely is.
Tonight Eric is in the city with me which is so nice because lately I'm just here alone. We're making spagetti for dinner. We're waiting for the water to boil, sipping wine at our dueling laptops. It's boiling now.
We've spent the last few days working with Thierry Boutemy and his crew. I like having other designers come use our studio. I like to watch how they do things. Granted, it's not particularly easy to take direction, but in general I enjoy the opportunity for someone else to call the shots. Through translation I learned we have a lot of flower ideas in common. He is a very very special artist.
Ruby was in town from Berlin/Australia and helped on the job. I'm crazy about Ruby, she's smart and perfectly sarcastic. And she reminds me of warmer Australian weather.
Today I've been out all day buying plants for our sale this weekend. I really hope people come because I've got so many beauties ready to roll. And Asheley's friend Anna made us all these great rope macrame plant hanger things. I'll try to give you a preview before the weekend so you can judge for yourself whether it's worth coming out.
One thing that gave me pause... last night at the end of our installation with Thierry, his intimidating, straight-shooting amazing assistant came over to me and said in her rough thick french accent; "Your girls. They are reel-ly gooud. Reeely gooud."
I know. I said.
