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,

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!

Take the wonderful practice of yoga, the joy and happiness factor of goats and a solid dash of magical mother nature and what do you get…an incredibly amazing inner peace zen moment..that’s right yoga with goats!

Tonight I had the privilege of attending a GOGA class at the Atlantis Dream Farm in Milton, Georgia. If you live in the ATL area or ever find yourself visiting it is a total MUST!!!

Often the question comes up of how and where do I get inspired from a design perspective…

For me it’s simply that I get out there with me eyes wide open no matter where I am with ferocious curiosity. I look up, look down, open doors, ask questions and go into corner’s (you never know what you might miss otherwise) of wherever my adventure might take me. Those adventures are sometimes a hike out in the wonderful world of Mother Nature, exploring a city and all it has to offer, rummaging through a flea market or in this case an amazing visit to Palm Springs.

Palm Springs for me was an EPIC ULTRA hotbed for all things design and inspiration…here is my Show & Tell.

stay curious,

when in doubt…

paint it gold!!!

As a card carrying tree hugger member the thought of cutting down a tree even if deemed “necessary” hurts my heart. So when one of our backyard beauties needed to come down I took matters into my own hands to celebrate this woodland wonder. We saved five pieces that would work perfect as a casual seating area out in the wooded yard…or as a dog obstacle course which is how it is often used. This new little set up still needed something…it had the rustic vibe going on but needed to step up it’s game oh so slightly…so I went right to my go to solve without even a blink…I painted the tops gold.

Not too rustic…Not too fancy….

Just Right,
