March's installment of 'Behind the Scenes' highlights Marisa of The Crafty Fox. Marisa and I have been friends since our early twenties. Which was just a few years ago, obviously. The way we met is quite an interesting tale, but best saved for another time. Marisa is one of those people who make you jealous by their layers of talent. She's a brilliant artist, designer, turtle rescuer, and also a musician. Her Etsy shop will be launching this spring. Brace yourself.
Collects old books on fairy tales among many other things!
Admires Squirrels. The way they can keep adapting to the crazy stuff humans do out there.. it's pretty amazing.
Daydreams Ah… living in a little stone cottage, with a view of a darling little garden, with a cozy fireplace, a library room for all my books, and in the bathroom a large claw foot tub - preferably with Colin O'Donoghue soaking in it.
Guilty Pleasures pizza & pie - my stomach is a bottomless pit for both
Weekend Pursuits I don't really have weekends; everyday is just a day. But, on days I pull back, I do enjoy discovering a new town or falling down the rabbit hole of a new book.
Libation of Choice Jameson with seltzer
Coffee or Tea coffee, coffee, coffee!
Blooms of Choice lilacs, lilly of the valley, monks hood and fox glove
Favorite Book oh this is a toughie! For now I am going to name two "A Connecticut Yankee in King Arthur's Court" by Mark Twain and "Peter Pan in Kensington Garden"s by J.M. Barrie… but really who can pick just one?!?!
Where I’d Rather Be in that bathroom with the large occupied claw foot tub - hey, whoa, what now!
Lipstick or Gloss of the Moment Tarte's "Amazonian butter lipstick" in Plummy Rose
Nail Polish Du Jour "Cerulean Rock" by Mineral fusion. It's a really pretty blue/green water nymphy colour
Signature Scent when I remember to I wear a cream perfume called "Forest"
Style Icon Chuck from Pushing Daisies
Can’t Leave the House Without tissues, lipstick, a book, and a mug of coffee (I run errands with an actual mug - not a thermos or travelers type cup - of coffee)
Pending Vacations Austin, Tx - Gilmore Girls reunion! <jumping on bed>
Social Media of Choice I am not too media savvy - I use the Facebook as my website for now.
Crushing On Colin O'Donoghue (he plays Hook on the show Once Upon A Time) Aye, aye Captain indeed!
