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???
I always fall for the gorgeous brooches during my treasure hunting adventures but then I end up talking myself out of bringing them home knowing I am not really a brooch wearing gal.
Well guess what??? New day…New dawn!
In fact I am a brooch wearing gal…just in a modified way. In a statement necklace kind of way.
Here is my latest fashion DIY project. Take one spectacular brooch and one complimentary necklace and you have just created a unique one of a kind “So You” statement necklace.
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!
So there…April showers totally delivered on May flowers in more ways than one!!!
Not only did these happy California poppies come out and play so did this fantastic vintage Lilly Pulitzer floral frock.
These are the patterns and prints that didn’t come home with me from Brimfield but still inspired me. Shocking, I know but even this more is more girl couldn’t bring home anymore!
As they famously say a picture says a thousand words, so here are 9,000 words.
So much pattern…so much inspiration…so much to share…so here goes!
Kapow!!! That’s the sound of Flower Power with a Punch…
This Flower Power Punch I speak of is not a refreshment nor is it your soft dainty floral frock where you have visions of proper ladies lunching at a garden party but more of a rowdy Andy Warhol crowd at an amplified pop art gallery opening.
I am sooo crazy in love with my vintage Neiman Marcus palazzo pants from my must stop shop, Swift and Faire, at the fashion tent during the Brimfield show. These crazy cool ladies always have an amazing curated collection of must have’s and these were for sure one of them this round!
