Work feels so much less like work when it's done in a pleasant environment!

I love the stillness of this photo. I used to think a yard had to be continuously in bloom to be beautiful, now I can see beauty in the dormant period as well.

Shared Interest

When I see a room like this, entirely dedicated to the beauty of flowers and gardening, I think of the person who must live there, and it's easy  to imagine that we could be friends. Without even knowing another thing about them...

vernacular photography- 1. the collecting of "anonymous" photographs. 2. "snapshots", very often by amateurs.

What a beautiful spot, it seems entirely tucked away from the stresses of life. We should all have such a place...

Oh, these stairs! They're so fun and pretty, they make me want to run out and bedazzle something... anything!

Coats for me are like shoes are to many women. I  have a definite weakness for them. What's yours? I assume we all have at least one...

One of the classes I'm taking this semester is Collections where I'll be putting together a collection of clothing (design, pattern, sew) to be shown in a fashion show in May. I've been  so looking forward to this but I'm sure you can see where it could be a bit intimidating as well. Luckily, we take it step by step; the first step being inspiration...see above.

White subway tile! Strange how something as simple as that can be so dreamy...

What's In a Name

I've been dreaming of naming our home for years now. I think of it as Grey Gardens although I've never made it official and I'm not exactly sure what would make it feel official; maybe a prettier garden, shutters and a painted front door. Anyhow, this little cottage is called Bee Cottage which I love and the owner has great insight about how to let a home take on it's own personality. Here.

Product Review

Bought myself a pretty camera strap because although I know it's not necessary for such an item to be beautiful, it feels that way to me. It arrived yesterday and I couldn't be more pleased. In case you're in the market for one, find them here.
