I LEFT MY HEART IN MARFA, TX

It has been a long time dream of mine to visit Marfa. Never heard of it? It's a little town about 500 miles southwest of Dallas and is something like a gritty west Texas cowboy art colony.

I went for a day trip with my dad this week between the NX35 and SXSW music festivals and had an amazing time-I cannot WAIT to get back to Marfa.

We stayed at the Thunderbird Hotel, owned by the same owners of the San Jose hotel in Austin.

Of course I brought six pairs of a shoes for a day trip. (and at the same time managed to forget to pack ANY shirts)

I was only there for a day and a half but I managed to take 2000 photos. I can't wait to share more!

For now, I've gotta get ready for South by Southwest. See you in a few, Austin.

    I you have the chance and interest, check out Pelada. It’s a soccer doc, but even if you’re not into sports you should watch it for the cinematography…..it’s BEAUTIFUL, with amazing photography from around the world.

    The painted knee highs are beautiful, such dreamy tones. Awesome taking six pairs…choices are wonderful things. The chairs are stunning, especially the circular ones. ( I have a strange fondness of empty seats- even wrote a post on them! ) marfa sounds excellent- await more photos…
    I have a striking fish brooch in my latest post I’m sure you would enjoy?
    Would be such an honor if you called by.x
