It’s always helpful to remind oneself of better, warmer times (especially when winter rears its head this late into April!) New York, I love you but I’m in India in my mind. These gorgeous warm tones from my trip last summer are great color inspiration for us. Vibrant greens and luscious orange next to the […]
It’s hard to find color inspiration when you’re living in a New York white out. But the snowy backdrop made this shock of cerulean blue all the more beautiful today. I had never even noticed this park bench outside my studio til it was surrounded by snow!
Great color inspiration from my recent trip to Architectural Artifacts in Chicago. What a place!

Can’t wait. In the meantime Tessesq’s photo stream on flickr is endlessly inspiring. Loaded with macro shots of roses, buds, bugs, and more the vivid colors alone will brighten the day. Here are a few favorites!
Ever want to write a lovely, old fashioned, romantically sentimental note, but didn’t have quite enough enough time to compose a world class poem and write it out in perfect penmanship?
