Playlist: Calendars, Planners, and To Do Lists

I am obsessed with calendars.  In fact, I’m kind of in love with all kinds of pretty paper.  Maybe it’s the artist in me, maybe it’s the writer, but electronic versions just don’t have the same appeal.  There is something that I just adore about flipping to a new page of a calendar each month […]


Playlist: Stormy Weather

Some things I’m loving this week…   Spring is such a transformational time of year and it’s a juxtaposition in extremes – on the one hand full of color and flowers and new life but on the other hand it also brings with it a darker side.  Living in Texas, Spring brings with it storms […]


Playlist: Spring Colors

Some things I’m loving this week… This Hive vase from West Elm, loved the look in this arrangement by Crystal Palecek of Rue Magazine. I stumbled across these bkr water bottles.  I love that they are glass rather than plastic, and come in a gorgeous array of colors.  If it will encourage me to drink […]


Things I Love Thursday

Been awhile since I’ve done a Things I Love Thursday post, so I thought I’d share some things that have been catching my eye lately. I’m so in love with Sarah Jessica Parker. But after seeing this video, I may love her home more. Gray Malin‘s photographs from Antarctica. I’ve been following him on Instagram […]


February in Photos

How can I possibly sum up my February in 16 photos?! I’m still in the midst of keywording and editing my photos, so I’ll have to make due with just some snapshots for now.  I flew to Germany on the first and from there Sylvia and I traveled by train to Paris.  We rented a […]


July in Photos

This summer is just zooming by like nobody’s business.  Frankly, July was a rough month.  Started out fine but then it took a nosedive.  My crazy work schedule took over again and a lot of late nights left me feeling overwhelmed and stressed.  Near the end of the month I made some adjustments in my […]


Things I Love Thursday: Catching My Eye

Today’s TILT post is going to be rather a mishmash of things that are making my heart beat a little faster this week. Last night the photo above of the Crescent Hotel in Beverly Hills stopped me in my tracks. I’m so completely in love with the hummingbird painting/print above the bed – such an […]


Things I Love Thursday: Chihuly

Well, I missed doing my TILT post last week, and almost missed it again this week.  Of course, with my birthday celebrations, my schedule is a little bit in an uproar, but I decided it was important to get this post in this week.  I’ve been having a lot of fun for my birthday and […]


Tuesday Thoughts

  I am in dire need of a mani/pedi before my get together this weekend. I’m feeling the need to get back to the gym. I need to Feng Shui the shit out of my house – I think the energy in there is getting to me I’ve really missed blogging on this blog.  I’d […]


An Object of Beauty

Ready for another book review?  I know, I can’t believe how fast I’m reading them either.  This one is the next book selection for Artful Readings (the book club I belong to).  And amazingly, I finished reading the book a mont before book club.  In nine years, this has never happened.  A month after book […]


Decorating with Books

Recently I decided that I really needed to get over and start dealing with my storage unit before someone calls Hoarders and blows the whistle.  I’ve been meaning to go through everything there and start getting rid of as much as I can.  I mean, it’s been in storage for years so the majority of […]


Reading My Heart Out

So I’ve been busy.  Seriously busy.  I’ve been reading my little heart out and loving every minute of it.  I thought I’d share some reviews of what I’ve read recently and since the book I just finished on Sunday is still on my mind, I’ll start with it.  I’ve mentioned before that I belong to […]


Five Years

On Friday morning I came downstairs to find not one, but two vases of roses from Eric.  We were celebrating our five year wedding anniversary, and I couldn’t believe all the roses!  They were stunning!  He also had a sweet sweet card for me as well. We decided to celebrate our day by going out […]


Living Art

Remember a few days ago when I posted my Flamenco shoot?  And I said that it was really my first foray into shooting models?  Yeah, apparently I was smoking something when I wrote that.  I was digging back through photos and found this folder of shots from August of last year.  ???  Yeah, I don’t […]


More Artful Readings

Time for more book reviews.  I am seriously shocked that I’ve finished three books so far this year, and it’s still January!  Of course, two of them were started last year, but still.   First up is The Forgery of Venus by Michael Gruber.  This was the selection for the Artful Readings book club I belong […]
