Blogging Your Way Farewell

This is a Blogging Your Way assignment:a blog mood board – though I have to admit, mine is more of a still life. Friday was the last day of my e-course and I’m feeling very sad. I enjoyed it SO much. And I highly recommend it to anyone who is just starting out…is in need…

Creative Process

Last week’s homework from my Blogging Your Way e-course (that fantastic one created by Holly Becker from Decor8 and Leslie Shewring from A Creative Mint) was to try something new from a list of ten options. I picked: Document parts of your day in a creative way (photos, podcast, video, hand writing, etc.) and post…

Perfecting the Fine Art of Parisian Chic?

There have a been a number of books and articles written about Parisian style – specifically how the decidedly un-Gallic can achieve it. In general – style is a difficult thing to imitate, as it rarely rings true when forced. So the idea that anyone can just pick up a new image and make it…

Interiors on the Runway

Yesterday, I posted some amazing images that I pulled from Miss Moss. All of which were inspired by fashion designer, Mary Katrantzou. When I followed Diane’s links to see the original collection, I read reviews referencing how her Spring/Summer 2011 collection (titled C’est Ci Nes Pas Une Chambre or This Is Not A Room) would…

Chinoiserie on the Runway

Have you seen my header? My button? Have you read my posts about beautiful Chinoiserie inspired ceramics? Embroidery? ART depicting the two? Well if so, you can only imagine my need for smelling salts when I happened upon these images from Miss Moss: When she saw Mary Katrantzou’s Autumn/Winter 2011 collection, she was inspired to…

Jacaranda Color

I just discovered a lovely blog, Lilly’s Notebook. One of the first posts I read featured gorgeous pictures of otomi fabrics from an online store: Jacaranda. Drawing inspiration from the jacaranda tree as “a reminder of nature’s perfect design,” this company champions natural and handmade goods by importing unique, indigenous items from Mexico, Central and…

I Want to Be Her!

Or at least I would like to be the one who came up with this idea… (visit the site to see larger/clearer images – this is as big I can get them) I want to be her! is a blog written by Andrea Linett, co-founder/former creative director of Lucky Magazine and current creative director of…

Read My Jess LC Necklace

Can you read minds? No? Lips? No? Braille? Okay – probably not, but you’d already know what your Jess LC Franklin necklace says. Here are the options: I think I want one of each. But “Dream Bigger” might be the one I could use right now… Which would you choose?

Be Mine

I found this adorable download on Inside a Black Apple years ago, and I always meant to feature it on Valentines day (first on The Big Piece of Cake and then here, on Wishing True) – but somehow it never happened. The little blondie reminds me of my Eleanor. Maybe I’ll give her one today……

The Next Best Thing…

If you can’t afford something that comes in a little blue bag this Valentines Day, what about a darling painting of the iconic wrappings? I just love Kelly MacDonald’s work. Especially her smaller still lifes. This is a new favorite. Have a great weekend cutting out paper hearts!
