The one on the left is a model. The one on the right is Ella Fitzgerald. One is posing, the other is not (or at least exaggerating it). It made me smile when I saw these two images side by side on Pinterest. There's beauty and strength in this pose, but each in a different way!
Happy post-Memorial Day! Back to work, but at least it's a 4-day week! So this illustration pretty much sums up how I feel today. While my weekend was a blast of fun with family & friends, the hot sun and an anxious me decided to bond this weekend, and well, the sun decided to stick around too long and the result was an unfortunate sunburned Kristen. I have now turned to aloe vera for skin therapy and will be avoiding the sun for awhile.
Have you seen this hutch makeover from Home Sweet Home? I think it to be quite beautiful. And that's not wallpaper you see on the inside, oh no, she took it a step further and used a Moroccan stencil - wow! My favorite is the gold hardware. What a transformation!
How darling is this image by famed photographer, Ida Wyman?! This reminds me of my younger days, probably around this little girl's age, when my mom would put foam rollers in my hair in prep for Easter or another dressy event!
