Call me maybe.
Remember these adorable plates that were sold at Anthropologie a while back? I loved them instantly and bought several.
I have long been a lover of insects and botanical artwork. I loved this collection of folk art bugs I used in a clients vacation home.
I have a collection of small framed bugs myself.
So when I was flipping through the newest issue of Heart Home Magazine, I was excited to see the title of this story:
As I was looking at the beautiful pictures of the home of this 'bug lover', I spotted a familiar plate on the wall of Lou Rota's kitchen.
I immediately made the connection..this was the Anthro plate artist's home!! I LOVE seeing the homes of artists, especially artists whose work I am so fond of. And this house does not disappoint.
I can't tell you how much I love this hand-me-down sofa that she recovered in 6+ different fabrics. It's so 'granny chic'!! It is so perfect in this house.
To see more of Lou's home and to see her process of recycling vintage dishes with her artwork, visit Home Heart Magazine here.
I am back in town after a quick trip to Greensboro. Our high school basketball team made it to the playoffs and we packed up our fans and headed east to support our boys. It didn't end up in our favor, but we are all so proud of the team and their amazing season. I got to stay the night with my mom before heading back to our snowy mountains late yesterday.
I am playing catch-up today while enduring one of my ever increasing migraines. Ugh. So, I will just give you some eye candy today -- some new works from one of my favorites, Amy Rice.
Hi friends! It's been a little while since we've met here. My weekend was spent planning and creating for a big reception that is happening tonight for a really special lady. It's going to be a very bittersweet evening and I am excited to show you pictures in the next few days. Since I am knee deep in party planning and I have family driving in to attend, today I wanted to revisit a piece of jewelry that is so special to me. A few years ago, I did a post on glass artist Melissa Schmidt's etsy store, and I thought Valentines week would be a great time to spotlight her bubble necklaces once again.
I selected precious images of my kids, my pets, and my family and emailed them to Melissa. She turned every image into little pieces of slide film. The transparent images are then captured in a glass bubble that she creates. They are delicate and subtle and when they catch a little light, the images come to life.
They are not the easiset to photograph with all of their tranparency and little bubbles and glassy handmade goodness. But, they really are stunning and everytime I wear it, people ask me about it. I love having my own little scrapbook around my neck.
I hope to be back soon! Hope you are enjoying your week!
