We Are Family

Friday, June 22, 2012

Heading to a family reunion this weekend...
While we're not a matching t-shirt family, I wouldn't mind wearing one of these cuties from Kin...
Have a fun weekend!

Floating Art

Tuesday, June 19, 2012

Another fantastic design, this time by a Danish couple in the field of architecture.  The stairs, while an amazing piece of art in themselves, actually do have a purpose leading to a rooftop deck.  I love the look of this "floating" staircase!

What are you up to this weekend?  I'm heading out for ladies' night at a local wine + dine tonight and then treating my parents to dinner for father's day and mom's birthday Saturday.  Can't wait!  

How stellar are these earrings from Osnat Har-Noy, created in her studio in Tel Aviv!  (I like the messy bun too!)

Pink Fiesta

Love everything about this colorful shoot by my friend Natalie at nBarrett Photography, Bows + Arrows, and Southern Fried Paper!  See more here.

Fabric Love

Wednesday, June 13, 2012

Bluebellgray has the best cushions!  Too bad they don't sell direct to the US.  Where can I get this fabric or something like it?  On a related note, I'm in the market for new fabric for a shocking $25 mid-century chair I purchased a few weekends ago.  Any great sites out there with more modern fabric choices?

Composite Skyline

Tuesday, June 12, 2012

The colors and line up of photos in this piece are what make it, but I really like the guy's story too:
I accidentally locked myself out of the shop one day and took advantage of the down time by walking up to the roof and taking this composite photo of the Manhattan skyline.

Artists' are so handy and visionary!

What have you captured lately?

Black Leather

Monday, June 11, 2012

Bad-a. I have some black leather pants in my closet (took them from a shoot), but I'm not sure I could pull them off like this!  On another note, I'd really like a Vespa!

Let's be as confident as she on this Monday, shall we?!

5 A Day

How cute is this print?  But more importantly, how well do you stick to what it says?  Hmm. ;)

Adore this hat from Preston & Olivia!  
Are you donning the hat look this summer?

A Perspective

Wednesday, June 6, 2012

Today started out like any other morning (I'm pretty routine), but about the time I was supposed to leave for work, I was not ready yet and I was stressed.  I leave for work at a time others would consider "early," but to me it's "on time" and I get worked up if I don't make that time - you never know what traffic's going to be like in a big city.  I hurriedly make it down the long hallway (no kidding) to get to the garage and realize, after I've started the car, that I left my phone in my apartment.  For those of you who fit in with the statistic of having your smart phone with you at all times, you get this next part.  I went back down that long hallway into my apartment to get my phone.  Surely I would miss a phone call or text that couldn't wait to be heard or seen until my lunch break... but this time, I actually did.  My friend wrote a small group of us to ask us to pray for her dad who's in the trauma center after a bad car accident.  Devastating.  I know how close she is to her dad.  This really put things into perspective for me, because while sitting in my car for 2.5 seconds after realizing I had forgotten my phone, I silently cursed because I was ticked I had to go back down the long hallway to retrieve it.  But after receiving that text it blew my problems out of the water.  And I needed that.

Instead of my own silly issues, here's what I'm going to focus on today because someone may need it:

Bow Bins by German designer Cordula Kehrer.  They are produced through a Philippine fair trade organization.  All resources for the baskets come from there.  Appealing in design, eh?!
