Getting Reflective

Mirror mirror on the wall…oops I mean mirror mirror on the entire house inside and out. True fact and not a typo!

Art is alive in the desert and man do I love art that invites you to participate in all its glory and splendor. Entering this reflective ranch was as if I was dropped into a gigantic kaleidoscope…magical!

This architectural installation, Mirage, by Doug Aitken was part of the Desert X Exhibition and will remains until October 31st, 2017. A for sure must see if you find yourself anywhere near the Palm Springs area.

Check out the below link for more about Mirage.

Pattern Palooza

PP 1

PP 2

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!

incredibly inspired,

Hello Sunshine

HS 2

HS 3

HS 4

There is a total bliss that comes to me when I see the first batch of daffodils that show themselves at the beginning of spring…so much so I find myself greeting them with a solid and joyful Hello Sunshine!!! So on this last trip to Brimfield I realized that I have that same inclination to do so whenever I see something so cheerful and optimistic created in this fun-loving color…I mean what would ROYGBIV do without yellow…ROGBIV…I don’t think so!!!
So here is my Show and Tell of some of the cheerful treasures that crossed my path.

Have a sunshiny day!

Laurel Canyon Vibe

PatchOne

PatchTwo

PatchThree

My fashion roots lie firmly in the 60’s and 70’s but when it comes to the summer loving time of year I lean HEAVY into the super groovy 1970’s style..which I like to call my Laurel Canyon vibe,where hippie meets beach bum with a decent amount of rock and roll for good measure!

The vibe looks something like this…macrame accessories, large hoop earrings, oversized sunglasses, halter top, chunky cork or wood platform shoes and a perfectly worn in pair of jeans.

What I really needed in order to complete the perfect Laurel Canyon vibe was a pair of patch covered jeans. So two plus years, many patches and many sewing mishaps later I would like to debut my latest and greatest project…

Peace. Love and Patches,

March On MuuMuu

This month the muumuu marches…okay so maybe more of a rain poncho but close enough to count! Incredibly motivated and moved to have been part of a greater empowered group of individuals…Hear us Roar! Make it Matter! Power to the People!

Peace,
