Happy International United Nations Day of Disability Rights. That is not what it really is called. It is called International Day of The disabled. Which is a weak name for a minor gesture by the UN. We already have International Human Rights Day. Which is exactly what Disability rights are. We are to be perceived as equal. Nothing more. Nothing "special". All we want are our human rights. I met my new Sturgeon Bay best friend in a coffee shop in Door County WI. I saw her and her fabulous pink cuff crutches getting out of her car and I just had to say hello! This sassy Registered nurse was an instant friend. A true kindred spirit. I just had to have a photo with our colourful mobility devises together! I'm posting this as a tribute to her and all my peers who are out there advocating for themselves and living their best lives! Viva la Disabilité!!
Channeling my inner Frida. The eyebrows are fake. The limp and artistic sensibility are VERY VERY real. I have learned that many people are unaware that the incredible Mexican artist Frida Kahlo had a disability. She did the majority of her paintings reclined in bed in fact. She walked with 2 canes. And at this time so do I. I felt then that this was the perfect opportunity to be her during my favorite holiday. Happy Halloween! #fridakahlo#fridakahlocostume#artistwithadisability#disabilitypride
My contribution for the Shining Brow Awards Gala was making the garlands for the table centerpieces. We used all natural greenery like every greens , Cyprus , Juniper etc. we have accents with Broom Corn and Wild Millet. On the day of the garlands will get some colorful accents with some fresh florals. #shiningbrowawards#galaprep#taliesin#franklloydwright
My favorite object at the Hillside complex is the big black round cauldron. During my break from my other preparation duties I took great pleasure in cleaning it up so it will shine in the fire at the gala on Friday night. How many of you have a cauldron at your work? #cauldron#FLLW#franklloydwright#taliesin
I hit the thrift store jackpot when I found this Alvar Aalto vase. I have coveted this classic Midcentury marvel since my adolescence. It looks great filled with flowers or on its own. So thrilled to have it!!!! #alvaraalto#vase#glassvase#midcentury#design
Happy Thanksgiving to all my friends and family celebrating in Canada and everywhere! Having gratitude in your heart is the antidote for hate in the world. #canadianthanksgiving#keepcalmitsonlyaturkey @threeonthe21 @ngordon2 @grangegordon @gilliangordonn
