It's hard to tell from the photo here, but we've had a steady stream of not-quite-rain, not-quite-snow here in Vancouver today. It looks like it's finally tapering off a bit (yay!), but things were looking pretty grim for a while, there.
All the icky weather made me appreciate the warm jolt I got this morning unpacking today's shipment from Victoria all the more, however. Sitting right on top of the first box I opened was a stack of bags printed with the Rock Cod--AKA Creepy/Ugly Fish, one of my favourite screens--in the most beautiful, shiny, "flesh"-toned ink. I've decided to make 2011 all about being mindful of life's little pleasures, so having such a fabulous pop of shimmer and colour greet me first thing today felt particularly wonderful (and I felt particularly wonderful handing the first one out shortly thereafter!).
On a vaguely related note, I also noticed that the studio gals have been sending us lots of lavender on the bags of late. Oddly enough, I was just reading on J. Crew's website this morning that Lauren Hutton highly recommends lavender as flattering for all complexions. Hhhhhmmmm....So what's stranger: our amazing printer, Liz, being psychically in tune with Lauren Hutton, or; Lauren Hutton's apparent new status as a J. Crew spokesmodel? Weird!
