summer clean

the muchness is getting to me again. i was inspired recently by one of my favorite blogs, simple lovely.  this post stayed with me awhile and got the wheels turning. 

summer clean
fall clean
whilst i don't think i'll ever be a minimalist (too much of a magpie and sometimes just keeping things tidy is an achievement), i love how more space and less clutter makes me feel, and lets me focus on the things that really matter. like small dogs who want to play.

ink on the water
this week i was lucky enough to do some marbling onto fabric with a pro at this technique, ilana kohnat the textile arts center in brooklyn.

fellow marblers were these lovely ladies, kay and jennifer

beautiful organic patterns forming...
my finished fabric

there is a lot of prep work involved in this craft, so be prepared to roll up your sleeves, but it's totally worth the effort!

bourbon and gloss

I love seeing a design interpreted and molded to someone's individual look. So, when gorgeous style maven Deenie Hartzog of Bourbon and Gloss told me about the collaboration she was doing with Chromatic Gallery, I couldn't wait to see what she would come up with. 

Check out Eric White's shots of Deenie at the studio on her color-quest of a day out. Here she is throwing a Dealtry Kelly scarf into one of the looks! This lady knows how to rock a pink lip, mix up her prints AND give you the best beauty advice.
