Art and Soul

Picture 8PicCollage

You’ve heard me promote Art Walk, artists, and musicians for the past 3 years. It’s something we love to be involved with at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique and feel a real sense of purpose. Last Friday was the 3rd annual Art Walk celebration and assembly woman Sharon Quirk presented Fullerton Art Walk and the sponsors with an official certificate of recognition. We were all so happy!

Brian Prince and Jesse La Tour (the two guys on the right) founded the  Art Walk back in 2010 and since then it has grown to more than 30 venues in Fullerton. Heidi and I (the two girls on the left) were proud to be a part of the planning this year and were so stoked when our local newspaper, The Fullerton Observer pressed this front page picture yesterday!

The giant, cut-out, walking men around town signifies an official venue. The Roadkill Girls came up with “Style Junkie”. It took weeks (and a lot of glue) to put to use our collection of heirlooms, broken jewelry and random crap all in the name of “ART”. (A BIG thanks to Barbara Vornholt for her dedication to the project!)

So when you spy this masterpiece outside of the shop, stop in and get your fix of art and fun!

Stay Creative!!!

Turquoise Toes

ImageImageImage

Heidi (AKA Retro Redhead)  is our “Type A” store manager at Roadkill Ranch & Boutique. Everything has to be perfect and orderly (LOVE HER), so you can imagine she’s a bit obsessive when she sets her mind to something. Last summer  her signature nail polish color for the season was yellow and this year she was in search of the perfect turquoise. She was on a mission! She wanted a bluey, minty, oceany freshness for her toes. So, first a bottle of “Model Behavior” from Sally Hansen came home with her.

“I hoped she would behave and be the summer color that I wished for”, said Heidi. “I tested her on my nails since I wasn’t getting my pedi for another day or so. Off to work I went wearing my favorite, leopard, bow ring to put the color test. Hmmm…it’s blue, but more electric than ocean. Not bad, but not the perfect summer signature color.”

Another day, another search, and then home with another bottle of polish. Could “I Need A Refresh-Mint” from China Glaze be the one? There was no time to test this on her hands, so out the door to her pedicure appointment she went.

“I closed my eyes while Nancy the nail lady painted away.” Tells Heidi. “And guess what? It’s the most perfect turquoise! My toes are smiling and so am I.”

I’m so glad that “Retro Redhead” found her color for the season before she started testing paint on other things (like the dressing room walls at Roadkill). So if you want happy feet, do what Heidi did and paint your  toes turquoise!
