I can’t think of a better way to kick off 2018 MuuMuu of the Month than with a Tiki Tuesday mash-up!
On this second to last day of January in my newly acquired super fab leopard print muumuu I sit here and dream of the tiki days of summer!
Nothing like a southern snow storm and a pink leopard print muumuu to get you in the ’tis the season to be merry mood and some snow angel making shenanigans!
wishing merry & bright to all,
Surprise and Delight…that’s what happens when Art and Mother Nature collide.
I was minding my own business driving home the other day and as I passed a local town square park I came upon such joy and magic that presented itself in the form of crocheted and knitted covered trees…yes, you read that right.
This was a definite stop, park and check out situation!
So this was what I found out…in honor of National Arts & Humanities month (which was in October) there was a nation wide public art installation celebration to bring awareness of the importance of the arts in our community. This absolutely amazing art that I had the privilege of encountering was created by the Atlanta-based group of knitters and crocheters The Knitterati.
Art is for everyone and everywhere,
When it comes to inspiration very little is off-limits!
When I say very little I do really mean that….I have been moved creatively by bark on trees, beautifully patinaed street hardware, vintage scarves, not to mention the randomness of my treasures from my antique hunts…just to name a few!
Today I have one word for you…Thermos!
That’s right the vessel that held your soup as a child and now holds your coffee is my latest muse. Yesterday I was out and about doing my treasure hunting thing and could not get enough of these beauties. The color combo…the patterns…spectacular!
Mirror Mirror on the walls, who loves MuuMuu’s and collects them all???
Where we went with more of a zen vibe and used textures in a big way in the master bath we flipped the switch in the guest bath and went in for a Hollywood Regency vibe. We used a favorite color combo platter of mine…a vibrant green mixed with black & white, then played with the hexagon shape in several places that set a mod/ vintage tone. And for good glam measure we went with a mirrored vanity and a vintage milk glass pendant.
ROYGBIV has always been a clever way to remember the colors in the rainbow and color wheel. Well I actually had the opportunity to spend a few fun days in ROYGBIV! Not possible you say…wrong you are!
ROYGBIV truly exists as a town in New Jersey….Cape May, New Jersey. Cape May is an absolutely lovely Victorian seaside resort town that became popular in the mid 18th century and is BEYOND charming and colorful!
If it’s not on your list it is a must add. The town is not just a summer town, it is beautiful place to visit in the fall and during the holidays.
somewhere is the rainbow,
I have my muumuu, some stylish protective eyewear and a 99% (ish) viewing location…sounds like a great day to get my eclipse on!
* Bonus Track…not only was it a magical experience this afternoon but the magic continued hours later as I reviewed all of the random photos on my phone from the day…
Happy Eclipse Day!
Day Three…Frankfort, KY to College Hill, OH ( and then back to ATL)
Bring on the day…
Today was a first….we made it to Ohio! What will 2018 bring? Michigan perhaps?
Although I absolutely love the treasure hunting, the scenic road trip and of course the pancake dinners at Cracker Barrel what I love, love, love the most are the amazing, kind and interesting people I meet along the way. This year we ended the trip in College Hill, Ohio and met such a wonderful, spirited, joyful group of people from Serve NCH doing great things not only for their immediate community but also the greater community by collecting medicine bottle for Doctors Without Borders. Good vibes…
Only 353 days until next year…Whose in?
