This will go nicely with my pink Vespa

Would love to find a vintage travel trailer and completely redo it. Love this sweet little cozy nook.

Pink vespa in my back yard

I was hoping Santa came early! What a gleaming, sparkly piece of exquisite pinkness! I had never seen one in person. I have always dreamed of having one and being "the flaneur on a pink Vespa".......alas.... It is a friends who parked it for the day.
Sigh.... Someday my Vespa will come...

3 years

Fathers Day
Wish heaven had a phone so I could hear your voice again. I thought of you today, but that is nothing new. I thought of you yesterday , and days before that too. I think of you in silence, I often speak your name. All I have are memories and pictures in a frame. Your memories are my keepsake, from which I'll never part. God has you in his arms. I have you in my heart ♥ Can't believe it's 3 years I miss you Poppy.

More Beautiful Things.....

Just another shopping day! 

 Love these! so sophisticated and all you need with a black linen sheath dress.
 This gown in Paris! yes. Fairytale design. Love the yellow in this case.
 Love this paper cut installation. An incredible amount of work, but gorgeous!
 Another breathtaking shot  by Lillian Bassman. I love her work it's so ethereal and feminine.
 This is simply still my favorite shot of any dress anywhere. Love this lighting.
 Love this gorgeous hat and gown.  They just don't make hats like this anymore. Oh so elegant.
 Had to include a shot of Tom Dixons stage at the ICFF.  He stole the show as usual, but Philippe Starck`s single lighting installation was my fave.
 These lights are just spectacular!! Can you imagine walking down this road? Most ridiculously beautiful display of lights I've ever seen.
 This is how I'm feeling today about summer on it's way. Long for the days at the beach in Whiterock, fish and chips, buckets, shovels , family and grandchild.  
Loved this sketch of my header from flickr.

Hope you are having a beautiful day!

I have caught the color bug. spring is here.

I was so inspired by these beautiful images from past posts at Black&Spiro. Had to share them.
 Love this pink and red together. A genius piece of work with fabric and wood.
 Love this vintage look roses pattern.
 I'm finding my orange love is growing. hmmm.
 Color! Color! Color!  Bring it.
 Loved all these Vogue ads from a few years back. Glamorous, but not too serious.

I want to just go to the paint store and get at it! Hope your day is colorful!

Some colorful thoughts on a gray rainy day.

If it has to be gray with shades of black and white. This is the gray I choose.  Not feeling great today so resting on my chaise in my heels and black ruffle hat.

Stopped in at "Elements Of Style" and had to forward this on!! I'm due for another brain MRI and thought wouldn't it be great to get results like this?

Definitely no activity on my Left side Hahaha!!

I've been loving these cups and saucers and would like just a few. Love the 24 carat gold wings.

Not Just Another Saturday.


Today we can pray for the devastated  in Japan. Prayer changes things. Our hearts are broken with them and we cry with them, but we pray for them.

Black And White For Weekend Perusing

Of course some whim from Jani Guzy!  I just love her work.

 Love the giant graphics here. I think they work and probably could live with this.

 Wow what to say? Absolutely fantastic and chic.  I'm loving this !

Well if I were going to throw all my eggs into one basket... this would be the one stunner to throw your graphics into. yikes!!!

No room is complete without black stripes of some scale somewhere.  Case in point.

I love the commercial look to this room and staircase. An awesome statement.

There is such a sweet balance in this redo dresser and the painting.  I think this is such a great do over for the right dresser. 

We are seeing more and more, black and white with gray.  I think it tones the tension down a bit and softens the  impact.  I'm thinking of doing a room this color.

......last but not least another dreamy Jani Guzy print.  She is amazing.  I first saw her work here in Vancouver quite a few years ago.  She has since moved to Italy and still creating.  Thanks Jani!

Well the snow is piling up here in Vancouver.  It doesn't seem so daunting from ten stories up though, just a pretty white decor taken outside.  Happy weekend!  Participate!!!

White, A Great Backdrop

I love  the colors and the shape of these vintage style pillows on the white background here. The covered 
button details run so tailored thru this whole theme.

 Love the black outlines here both linear and curvy.  Perfect tension.  and of course the best, pink.

 This is all about texture and so simple.  I'm not fond of the lamp but it adds another dimension.

 I'm loving these gray walls.  So exquisite and accessible. I would love to do a room in this color with cream and black.

 More texture.  I am a big fan of black and white stripes including zebra stripes.

 Kelly Hoppen's amazing eye and talent. My favorite thing here? The Barcelona ottoman of course!
Not getting tired of white anytime soon.  I always feel comfortable and calm in it. It's always fresh and new and relates to clean somehow, untarnished, pure maybe. hmmmm that's something to think about.
It needs alot of texture and perhaps an understated metallic, but worth every edit to get it.
Happy Tuesday!
