weekend: cottage & artwork.

Gem Club
Vocabulary | Gem Club

Over the weekend my good friend, Emily Hogan, music blogger of Wholly Roller, hosted her first show at a place called The Cottage. It was the first time Tim and I had ever been there, and it was magical. The Cottage is the garage apartment of a beautiful house where the upstairs is the recording studio and the downstairs is the venue. They have all these little cafe lights that make the most incredible mood and a huge tree swing out in the yard. The bands we save were perfect and dreamy: Vocabulary, Holy Spirits, Gem Club, and Places. Tim took the pictures above and you can see the rest of the series on his flickr.

In other news, my best friend from back home came up to Atlanta for a music festival. It was wonderful being able to spend some time with her! I was able to get a new handbag and it is exactly what I have been looking for. Also pictured is the media console I mentioned in a previous post and I had been meaning to show you! That front panel slides back and forth - perfect for the records and all their glory!

I'm sure most of you don't know that I am an officer for the art history club at my university. The club is hosting an art exhibition at Mint Gallery next month and I'm very excited! This weekend I finished it up, yay! I used a discarded landscape print and illustrator markers. Here's the piece, "Better Him Than You" :
