Artsy Fartsy

I've never considered myself much of a beach person, but the longer I live in the Midwest the better and better it is sounding.  I don't know exactly what it is about Gray Maylin's work, but I am a little obsessed at the moment. Especially the aerial beach scenes. I love the idea of hanging one of these in a neutral space to add the right amount of color and fun. 

This beauty was available during a flash sale last weekend.  It is by far my favorite, but has sadly come and gone. 
 I love the retro vibe that this print adds to a kitchen, the old school milkshake maker doesn't hurt either.

There is currently a MLK sale on few of these puppies today over at Maison Gray, in case you are looking to snag a little sunshine for your home.

Radiant Orchid: Pantone Color of the Year

Although I am a much bigger fan of last year's Emerald Green, Radiant Orchid is a sweet color that serves as a nice accent color. I don't think I will be painting an entire room with it, but here and there -it works. 

Here are a few ideas for incorporating Pantone's Color of the Year Radiant Orchid into your life.

Thanks for reading!

Well Hello...!

Well Hello...! It may have been a few weeks, er months, but I am going to (try) and be better about blogging. I really miss it sometimes, but also want it to be something that I look forward to and is fun! I started blogging in 2009 while studying abroad in Paris.

Back then blogging was no where near what it is now. I didn't really know what I was doing, I was just sharing my thought and pictures from my adventures through the city, and I loved it. I want to get back to that place, where blogging is fun and it doesn't matter what other people are doing and many page views I get or don't get. So that's the goal this time around...Here we go 2014!

A few photos of what I've been up to since we last talked :)
