These lilac blossoms inspired me today...They led me to find other examples of their uplifting (and soothing) color. I feel good when I look at these images below, too...

Internet Issues

I'm having some connection issues, which are making it difficult to post! Hopefully it's an easy fix and I'll be back to full strength soon!

Moving to Sweden?

Hmmm... these lovely apartments in Goteborg and Stockholm look good to me! I've been browsing this site, dreaming about a Scandinavian pied-a-terre. And if I ever sell my home, I hope my broker works this hard for me!

Needing an Escape

We had snow this weekend. AAAAAAAAAAKKKK! Since I'm not actually going to the beach anytime soon, I dreamt with one of my favorite coffee table books. I'd say yes to the Moroccan coast...
or this Mexican hideaway, thank you!

Happy Weekend

I wish you a beautiful weekend, and I hope your week was perfect. I was concentrating on some other things for the past couple of days... I'm so sorry for not being here! I'll leave you with some all-over-the-map, but feel-good (at least for me) art being auctioned this weekend in Warsaw and...
in London...
Artists: 1. Jerzy Nowosielski 2. Jan Opalinski 3. Tadeusz Kantor 4. James Hull 5. David Bomberg 6. Joan Miro

I love the pops of color in these scenes... I think I'll always be a white with pops of color kind of person. (want proof? remember this and this?)photos from The Selby, Hotze Eisma (thank you Lolita and Emma), Apartment Therapy Chicago, Absolutely Beautiful Things, and Marie Claire Maison.

Holly Farrell

This weekend I was catching up on a month's worth of absolutely beautiful things (how true), where I was introduced to the work of Holly Farrell. I was really struck, so... here it is! For those of you not familiar with Ms. Farrell's work, these are paintings. I love the Slippers triptych above (you must see it bigger), and I think my favorite is Tennis Racket. I spent a long time on her website and then found this interview, where I discovered that she is self taught. Wow... Slippers, Tennis Racket, Bowl, Barbie and Ken , and name not known (sold)
