Emily had a little lamb

 

new-born-lamb

hmmm. i shall call this the ‘i got to hold newborn lambs all weekend’ post. whatever could it be about, you wonder?  just the fact that I, Emily Henderson, styled a shoot on a sheep farm for four days in Pendleton Oregon where i could embrace baby lambs at my leisure.  We were shooting the Pendleton Woolen Mills catalogue so we went to one of the farms that they get a lot of their wool from.  let me be clear, Pendleton (the town) doth blow hard.  But the farm  and the company are rad, americana at its best,  full of the nicest people, a bunch of awesome peruvian sheep farmers, un-ironic western shirts, rodeo gear and rolling grass hills for forever (235, 000 acres) where sheep have pretty awesome lives.  if you worry about where your wool comes from, buy their products.  these sheep are happy happy happy. i saw them first hand.  They get sheared once a year (the ewes give up about 13 pounds of wool, the bucks 18lbs).  Its all totally sustainable, not sure if its organic, or what not, but the sheep really do have the lay of the lamb and roam wherever they want.

 

  This city slicker finds anything super authentic and americana extremely awesome, if not endearing;  the old wooden shovels, the chippy white painted fences, the sheep herding dogs that take serious pride in their ankle nipping abilities, the broken down, sun bleached sheds, the edison industrial lighting in the barns, etc. etc. If you ever wonder where John Derian and, well now, everyone gets their industrial vintage pieces, its places like Pendleton, Or.

These lambs were 2 DAYS old.  They were outrageously cute.  This guy (above) is Brian, the husband who is also the biggest animal lover I know.  He visited me over the weekend because I had already been gone for 2 weeks and i’m starting another job straight from here for a couple more weeks.

We watched the sun come up and go down most days.  It was super, super pretty.  I’m feeling a bit broke back right now.  not sure what that means.
oh and pendletonians are super super nice.  I’m not one of the city folk who gets annoyed with niceties (at least not quick niceties).  I relish in them-  the unnecessary conversations, the politeness to pure strangers, the genuine and honest food reccommendations from waitresses at restaurants.  i love it all.  I once did a shoot in Little Rock and i have to say after 3 days of being called ‘miss emily’ (by EVERYONE, randomly, there was no town meeting about it, i wore no name tag, it was as if it was my given name) i realized that i might actually prefer it and was disappointed when upon returning to LA people didn’t jump at the chance to address me as such.
yes. i like nice people.  unless they are in front in me in line making unnecessary convo with the teller.  or walking really slowly on the streets. or trying to give unsolicited advice about which shoes or clothes or jewerly i should buy in a store.  then miss emily gets a ‘lil’ bit peeved.

  24. This combination of Thursday, Nov. 22, 2012 and Sunday, Oct. and people walking at the rebuilt area a year later. coastline, thousands of people still trying to fix their soaked and surf battered homes are being stymied by bureaucracy, insurance disputes and uncertainty over whether they can even afford to rebuild.Billions of dollars in federal aid appropriated months ago by Congress have yet to reach homeowners who need that money to move on. Many have found flood insurance checks weren nearly enough to cover the damage.And worse, new federal rules mean many in high risk flood zones may have to either jack their houses up on stilts or pilings an expensive, sometimes impossible task or face new insurance rates that hit $10,000 or more per year. Contractors say it will cost $270,000 to rebuild about double what the insurance paid out. The family doesn have the money.”What do we do with this house? Just give them the deed back?” she said. “My son is 11. He has a little piggy bank in his room. He said, it, mom. In Long Beach, a barrier island city of 33,000 on the coast of New York Long Island, residents in some neighborhoods say half their neighbors have yet to return.”I don think Long Beach is ever going to be what it was,” said resident Ginger Matthews.Sandy roared out of the Atlantic and struck the New York and New Jersey coasts on Oct. 29, 2012. In New York City, the storm surge hit nearly 14 feet, sending the Hudson and East rivers pouring into the city subway and commuter tunnels and knocking out power to the southern third of Manhattan. Gas stations ran out of fuel. High rise residents had to carry water up darkened stairwells. Thousands of fragile patients evacuated crippled hospitals and nursing homes.Out of that chaos came remarkable stories of recovery. New York City submerged subways and tunnels sprang back to life with surprising speed. Beach boardwalks were rebuilt. Mountains of debris were removed. Flooded schools, nursing homes and amusement parks have reopened. The whine of power tools hasn ceased in many neighborhoods since the moment the floodwaters receded.But for every success story, there are tales of continuing frustration.On New York City Staten Island, where 23 people died, vacant lots have been multiplying on spots where homes once stood. Sheetrock and debris still decorate front lawns. Plywood covers bungalows, “Restricted Use” signs hanging on their front doors.On the Jersey shore, officials said that in the tiny seaside borough of Mantoloking, where the storm washed dozens of homes clean into Barnegat Bay, fewer than half the buildings in town had been repopulated. Beachgoers had to walk past rubble and still to be torn down houses to reach the sand.The federal government has responded by pouring money into the region. FEMA gave $1.42 billion to help storm victims pay rent, replace lost possessions and make emergency repairs. The agency gave another $2.7 billion to help municipalities clean up debris, repair critical infrastructure and reopen damaged hospitals. The federal flood insurance program paid $7.8 billion to nearly 132,000 policyholders who sustained damage during the storm.But for some people, is hasn been enough. Many had no flood insurance. And the process of getting federal aid money into people hands has been slow.First, the states had to build homeowner aid programs from scratch. Then it had to accept and process many thousands of applications, while navigating numerous federal rules and reviews.Seth Diamond, director of storm recovery for New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo, said the delays caused some homeowners to doubt that the program was real. But he said bureaucratic hurdles are getting resolved.”We gotten to the point where we can release money,” he said.New York state sent letters this month to 4,300 homeowners on Long Island, saying they had qualified for a collective $452 million in federally funded, state administered rebuilding grants. The average award was $112,000 a godsend to people who had put off reconstructing their homes because they weren sure how to pay for the work.New Jersey parallel rebuilding program began notifying 4,100 people of eligibility for similar grants at around the same time, with plans to eventually award $600 million.On New York City beachfront enclave of Breezy Point, new homes are beginning to rise after many months of inactivity on the sandy blocks where fire burned 130 houses and flooding destroyed another 220.”There hope. Things are finally starting to happen,” said police Capt. Roy Richter, as he watched a new house going up. He hopes to be back home in a house elevated 7 feet higher than his old one by St. Patrick Day.A Timeline of Hurricane Sandy

  28. Also stop into Chelsea Market now and then. They have a space that is often used for pop up sample sales, I have seen many famous designers for cheap in there. My alma matter, FIT, also does a flea market every Thursday, and you can find really cool stuff there as well. They also have a student run shop that sells stuff made by both FIT students and also vintage or discount designer clothing. I got a Marc Jacobs top there when I was a freshman for 40 bucks.
