Happy Earth Day

MMOTM4

It’s her day so go out there and celebrate and show your appreciation…hug a tree, take a walk in the woods or find the perfect place to frolic in a field of flowers! ┬áThe her I speak of is one of my all time favorite bad asses…Mother Nature!

Take Good Care of Her,

Everyday is Earth Day,

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,

Thermal Inspiration

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!

Truly Inspired,

Guest Bath…Before & After

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.

viola…hello hollywood!

Bringing Back the Brooch

BBB

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.

Voila!

MuuMuu of the Month Goes Eclipsing

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!

Show & Tell…the 2017 127 finale

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…

 

Ta-Da…

 

 

Only 353 days until next year…Whose in?
