silly girls...

just back from baden baden

and the market that elisabeth was doing over the weekend.

elisabeth is a milliner and designer,

[although i really prefer the word of modiste so much more]

someone i've worked with since my gallery days,

but also someone that is a dear dear friend.

the good talks over good drinks kind of dear friend,

and lately, the thoughts on our minds

and the pulls on our hearts,

are on many of the same parallels.

with change on the horizon.

elisabeth was selling and showing the fleurs this weekend,

so i drove up to baden baden on friday,

and then this afternoon as well.

unfortunately for the both of us,

it really wasn't the best of markets.

but it was elisabeth that was there

and had to endure the rain, the cold,

and the dull and boring moments.

so today we talked about,

starting to work on a project of our own soon.

taking more photographs,

working together with the hats and the fleurs.

and getting elisabeth a new website done as well.

before we started taking the stand down this evening,

we were having a bit of a silly moment.

both of us feeling a bit like the weather,

grey, cold, rainy and simply blah.

the camera is always a good rememdy for that.

"ladies with an attitude

fellows that were in the mood

don't just stand there, let's get to it

strike a pose, there's nothing to it"

as madonna once said.

did i say that we were being silly girls?

oh, for the love of friends.

and elisabeth's hats!

My 88 year old French friend was a 'modiste' and could whip up many a hat in her day!
You look smashing!

Oh, it sounds like you both had such a good time at the market. Elisabeth's hats are lovely and I especially like the cool mohalk one on her website. The photograph of you wearing the big black swoopy hat with the gorgeous red flower and feathers is beautiful! What great cheekbones you have, Angela!

Both absolutely beautiful, and Ang, you are stunning!!!

Omondieu - there were far too many dull and boring moments this weekend- but thanks to some very special warm and friendly people there luckily were warm and cozy moments of frienship, laughter up to immense silliness...
Thanks to you dear Angie for rescueing me that sunday afternoon of dying from boredom or frustration!
I almost cant wait to start working on our projects. I'd like it to be like:
Tatatata!! Here we come!
