Isn't it yummy? This is a detail of one of my Inspiration boards in the office. I really don't know what to call that room. Office seems too dry, Studio seems to not right and craft room doesn't quite work either. At any rate, its up in my creative space. I love that buttery yellow enamel flower pin. And that postcard of the girl with the orange came from miniswap with the lovely Strikkelise last year. I have had the postcard below it of the sweet peas since College. Thats a long time ago. ('91) Here is another shot
Another great enamel pin. I got a handful of those great old vintage bubble wands at a sale last summer and they are just so cheery and architectural. The red is a tiny bit of red foil with a tiny velvet flower stuck through it. I love the contrast of the matte metallic with the matte velvet. And that sweet little yellow floral print is a tiny piece of vintage fabric I have had a long time- no doubt from some estate sale. And one more for you:
We bought this on our honeymoon almost 10 years ago. I loooooove it. I used to live in Hawaii and I love all things Hawaiian. What a beautiful people and culture. It hangs above my desk but I am starting to think I want to put it somewhere where more folks will see it. One day, when the kids move out and I need a distraction from missing them so much I will make one of my own. Of course the big one tells me he is going to always live with me. I suppose when he gets bigger I will want him to get out on his own but for now it's nice to think about. Have a great rest of the week!
