Oh, and Happy, Happy, Friday!

Hello Lovelies!

This week has been good to me, as I got back on track on the art front (I have an oil painting up my sleeve), the blogging front, (right here of course!) and on reading two blogo-neighborhood favorites of mine : Jane Flanagan's beautifully balanced "Ill seen Ill said" blog, (Jane, I'm happy to say, just launched a beautiful shop called "Coterie") and Dominique's Browning's "Slow Love Life", who is so well written and thought-challenging.

On the butterflies side of thing, I have found this amazing fabric hung in the Black+Spirop window:

 via the ABT blog

I like the vibrant, almost 'gone wild with colors' style of this fabric and this photograph as a whole.

Also of note is Amy and David Butler's house tour on AT. Turns out Amy has a cabinet of curiosities, filled with dried butterflies and found shells... Simply lovely! Just see for yourself:

Have a swell week-end everyone!

Exotic Insects as Inspiration

Hello Lovelies,

scarab_9C59935F274B36335BCE3445FF7B0

It's time for some Thursday's Insect Inspiration... So I wanted to share with you some beautiful pictures of nude males...ahem... insects! (just kidding).
They are my daily inspiration. Please open your mind to their natural beauty, and don't say "yuck, bugs!"
(All images from the "Muséum d'Histoire Naturelle, France", found via MSN Entertainment).

It's Time for Spring (and Renewal, too!)

Hello Lovelies,


I've had some difficulties of late, sure did, as I got very ill this last winter and had my computer stuck in for repair for two whole months.

Now I'm back on track... And I'm feeling ready for things and art to spring under my little fingers!





This is also a time for renewing my pledge to the Creative Everyday Challenge, the 2011 edition! more details here...

Talk to you soon!
