Before I Leave Texas.

I have approximately 3 more months¬†in Austin and I can already feel my Texas pride growing.¬†To satiate this feeling I’m planning on taking little things¬†that remind me of¬†home. I wish that I could take the weather with me. I know¬†most¬†people hate the heat down here, but the summer is when I thrive. I’m going to soak up the sun¬†as much as I can in¬†preparation for the 3 years of fog and drizzle that I have ahead of me.

Top on my list is to get a pair of boots. So far these are my favorites that I’ve come across they’re from milkbar boutique on etsy.

Another find on etsy is this Texas Pillow made by love california.

Rock the Finch Out.

French artist Céleste Boursier-Mougenot creates works by drawing on the rhythms of daily life to produce sound in unexpected ways.

For his installation in The Curve, Boursier-Mougenot creates a walk-though aviary for a flock of zebra finches, furnished with electric guitars and other musical instruments. As the birds go about their routine activities, perching on or feeding from the various pieces of equipment, they create a captivating, live soundscape.

Here are the pics she took!
