Day 184 ~ Zombie Waitress whose Heart Fell out

This year we are going to Occupy Halloween with Occupy Wall Street in the Village Annual Halloween Parade! I am going as a Zombie Waitress who doesn't have health care, therefore she got so sick her heart fell out. I made everything except the shirt!

Day 183 ~ Home Sweet Home

After a day of trudging through the wintery slush, from City Hall, to Zuccotti Park, to a screening of "Sing My Song" and a Q & A after with THE Harry Belafonte, we were wishing we had a fireplace to come home to. Though after all the wet clothes are shed, and the cozy clothes are on, it is quite warm and cozy here, even without the fireplace!

Pastels on paper.

Day 179 ~ Have A Heart

While I'm watching the live stream of Occupy Oakland's march around the downtown, after they were violently forced out of their camp in the middle of the night last night and all of their gear destroyed, makes me want to quit my job and move to Zuccotti Park. 

Instead I made this lovely sign for the march with Occupy Wall Street tomorrow "Get Wall Street out of Healthcare!! March Against the Health Insurance Industry." We are going to stop at St. Vincent Hospital, or rather the boarded up former hospital, the only hospital that existed on the West side of downtown Manhattan. You know the one that treated most of the 9/11 first responders and victims. 

Back to the live feed....

Day 177 ~ Heart-lette

Yesterday I went to see the Daphne Guiness exhibit at FIT with a good friend. The collection of clothing was spectacular, but what was truly brilliant was the styling. Daphne wonderful at putting together an outfit. She loved to tie 2" satin ribbon around her wrist or neck and pin a broach on it. Today's heart is a humble tribute to her magnificent style.

Day 174 ~ Follow Your Heart

Today's heart was partially inspired by Becky's cool heart art for today and by the events of today.
It seems we were both thinking and feeling the similarly at the same time. It's happened before!

Day 166 ~ Best post day EVER!

My new favorite long distant friend, and fellow heart art in crime, had her first geekheartsagiveaway! Well of course I was the first to write to get one of those cool scratch board hearts, and I knew it would be super fun to get something in the mail from Becky :)

Well, the package arrived this week and made my day! How cool to find in the mailbox an envelope from so far away, hand written, from a new friend. The first thought I had was, my next trip must be to go to London!! Becky included a scratch heart for Thomas too, how sweet is that?!... so here are our hearts for today, thank you Becky!!! 

If it isn't obvious, mine is the one on the left.

Day 159 ~ I love my APPLE!

I received the news of Steve Jobs passing via a text message on my iphone while at the Occupy Wall Street solidarity march tonight. I took this photo with my iphone using the hipstamatic app and imported it into my MacBook Pro laptop. I use Apple products ever day of my life. I will miss Steve Jobs' new innovations and new cool sleek designs. The world will not be the same with out you Steve. Thank you for all that you gave us. May you rest in peace.

Day 157 ~ Ghosts From the Past

I found all these keys at the bottom of a wooden box. I started to wonder, how long have these been in this box? Are they to a car or an apartment? Probably both, and I probably carried these around with me everywhere I went. They were so familiar then and now are totally forgotten.

Day 156 ~ Love is Pure

Recently I was reunited with a childhood friend. She brought back from Paris this gorgous soap for me. It smells so good and was such a precious gift that I decided to save it for a very special occasion, so I put it in a safe place. That was 2 years ago! I found it this past weekend and decided today is that special day!
