Holiday Shopping Guide!

5

  UPDATED: 12/5/13! I recently sent some friends an e-mail with things I bought (or will be buying) for my holiday gift list. Then Monica from Wired Momma asked if she could feature it on her blog. THEN I thought, “wait a minute…I have a blog, and back when I was actually writing stuff on…

Wish List for July 16, 2012

Feeling pink and gold today… Inspired by this blazer/jacket I think: And isn’t it great with that Anthro necklace? I’ve been a longtime reader (i.e. lurker) of Erin Gates’ blog, Elements of Style. And she has recently teamed up with a friend to start a line of blazers. The label is Two Penny Blue, and…

Wish List for June 11, 2012

Today’s list includes a true range of affordable to attainable to maybe when the kids are out of college-able. For ME, that is…as a ring that has four digits in the price (BEFORE the decimal point) isn’t a priority for our family right now. ANYWAY. How fab are these? First - a pretty top from Rickshaw Design: I picked this…

Wish List for June 4, 2012

After a year without posts (and a brief attempt at a return), I’m bringing back my Wishing True blog! Now a page on The Big Piece of Cake, I’ll use this space to write about all of the beautiful things I find online (and there are many).

And that’s not just the family love talking (okay .01% love – but the rest is strictly objective). My parents’ shop participates in a Key West event called…

Room Portraits by Sarah Dougherty

I recently discovered Sarah Dougherty, and I can’t for the life of me remember where… Click to enlarge on all! The amount of detail and character in these room “portraits” is extraordinary. And I love the idea of capturing the personality of a room in a portrait. It must be amazing to see them in…

Workings: Christina Long (Now Baker)

My son, George always calls the projects he brings home from school, “workings.” It’s almost a word of reverence for him – not just a painting or a drawing or a project, but a “working.” Now firmly embedded in my own lexicon…when I see artwork I love, I always think of it as “workings.” Here…

New Favorite: Abby Try Again

I just recently discovered the beautiful shop, Abby Try Again: It was hard decide which images to features. And  love how she provides details about the scenes – inspiration for the shot, how the picture was taken… Find more loveliness HERE.

Artist, Louise Despont

I’m so incredibly intrigued by the work of Louise Despont. (the second, third and last images are closeups of details in the larger ones above them) She uses old ledger pages as a backdrop for detailed drawings of patterns and shapes. All of which leave me with the impression of drafting papers. Or possibly landscape…

Artist Tamara Thomsen

I discovered Tamara Thomsen’s work on Aesthetic Oiseau the other day and I can’t stop looking at it. The linear segments filled with such swirling color reminds me rich textiles and tapestries. So lovely…See more HERE.
