Mish at Beansgood asked for pics of the new place....

another corner....

The mirrors just make the sunlight dance. I love how bright it is.

more of the living room.....

Some iron rose trees my son Joseph got for me. They look grand together.

another small cutout of the Inspiration board..

Kind of a different angle of the wall with the gold leafed and white

More German Glass sparkle!

I use these black ones for eyelashes. Once they are put in place one at a time they look great on the retro Parisian ads.

hodge podge on the Inspiration board.
Well it is certainly gorgeous here in Vancouver today. Wow!!!!!!
I hope your day is as beautiful wherever you are.
Please me a comment and let me know you stopped by and what you thought.
Thank you,

Speaking of Chet.....

I thought since speaking of Chet Baker, I should post a few of my favorites. You really haven't heard music until you've heard this man play and sing. Chet Baker sings is one of my favorites along with everything else he did. lol. I've said it before it is oddly perfect to work to or relax to. Once you listen to Chet you'll be hooked.

Wow him and Charlie Parker ..... Capitol!!!!!!


Back in the Shwing of things!!

Love the sparkle of these German Glass little diamonds!
another Lillian Bassman fav next to miss topless 1964. hahahaha! too funny. The fellow in the hat is my beloved brother. He always loved

Have fallen in love with these blues over and over again. Now I'm decorating with them. Especially that Aqua Turquoise. I find it so calming.

This is one of the ads I did for Nordstrom. It really got me and started the love for all blues.

I had a few more health issues which kept me from my blog for a few months, but am so glad to be back. I'm so inspired by all of your amazing talent. I'm pumped to get back to work and make more huge messes!
Hope you are enjoying the beautiful weather! I hear there is a heat wave all across the US. I hope you are all well my American friends. Just put on some Chet Baker and grab an iced glass of passionfruit juice and sit down and chill back. (okay maybe cranberry. passionfruit juice is 25 dollars a bottle here)
Nice to see you all again! hugs to you Janet @ French Blue. You are so generous and real and such an inspiration to me. Your blog is like mini vacation for me on the days I need one.
Best regards,

More nooks and corners

some new acrylic with ground mother of pearl in it and the gorgeous shoe from Janet at French Blue. I treasure this Janet!

The inspiration board got a new direction this time. I'm still getting used to it.

These are pieces off of a 60's kleenex box cover. They are like jewels.

unorganized corner... but sometimes I'm inspired by this.

I'm going to mount these permanently here with hinges I think. They have grown on me. Happy Monday!

Random pretties

....on the top of my desk.
The new home of my mess making.

I was smitten by this mid century modern piece and had to bring it home. It has some unusual delicate lines.

Just had to throw in one of my favorite Lillian Bassman's

Love the ease of this room. I imagine it works.... might be tough getting out of chaise.
Happy Saturday!

Some random shots around the new place.

Dad's plate rack. Can't stop with the white!
up close. Still using these metallics. Can't get enough of them.

Metallics and Mother of Pearl are my two favorites .

Little white cabinet has a new face.

The new art studio has a great ammount of daylight. What a dream to work in.
I feel so out of the loop although have been researching, I miss hearing from all of you. The ICFF flew by and I feel like I missed it. Any faves?
