Sorry for the silence here and missing last week's Monday Pretties. My husband had a work conference in Denver, CO, so we decided to make a week of it and enjoy some time in the city and the mountains.

Let's Talk Accessories

September 21, 2011 - comments
I have to admit that I’ve gone a bit accessory-happy with this outfit. I’ve spent way too much time and probably too much money scouring eBay for the perfect additions to my outfit. I have found some really cool stuff, both antique and modern. In fact, I have so much stuff that I’m going to have to break it up into several posts. To accessorize this outfit my rule of thumb has been “what would a naturalist carry in the field?”


New Feature: Monday Pretties

Because Monday's are never fun, I thought I would introduce a new feature for the blog. Every Monday I will post and image or a series of images to start your week off right. The images could be related to a project I'm currently working on or they could be something I simply think is pretty.

Whistler’s Harmony in Blue and Gold: The Peacock Room

September 4, 2011 - comments

It’s no secret that I have a fascination with Aesthetic art and design, among many other things. I admit I am lured by the beauty and extravagance of the movement. Happily, at the distance of 150+ years, I can look at things through rose-colored glasses; I have the luxury of romanticizing the past and imagining it is applicable to my life.

So with that fascination in mind, this spring when my husband and I took a trip to Washington, D.C. for our anniversary, I made it a point to stop by the Freer Gallery of Art to check out the installation of Whistler’s Peacock Room. And boy, it didn’t disappoint.
