inspired :: Prince Edward Island

I was able to break away and visit my folks on Prince Edward Island, Canada. My favorite place on Earth. My parents, my husband, and the island inspire me to no end.

a blast of color :: pairing art and interior

{the image via habitually chic, from a thomasville showroom} Of course, I added one of my paintings to give the room a much needed lift.


This lovely piece is looking for a home, it’s still on the easel but should be read by next week. For more information contact Nadine below.


under the sea :: buzz

We were featured by Konvaliia Designs out of New York with this beautiful combination of items from under the sea. Dana Lenec has a terrific array of photography and drawings in her store, so please be sure to check them out.

So many beautiful items, we’re exceptionally fond of the following:

  1. The sealife seashell pillow cover is spectacular. Ruth Arthur is the artist behind Designer Cushions out of New Zealand. This SHOP is a must see. Her prices are incredibly low for the amount of time that is put into each and every cushion cover. Her attention to detail is truly amazing.
  2. Non Fiction Tees, featuring tees with vintage illustrations. We can’t get enough of Ernst Haeckel!
  3. Don’t miss out on the steampunk shark necklace from Cosmic Firefly, you will love all the items they carry. I’m crushing on so many of their business card cases.
  4. And of course, we’re fond of our coral and sea urchin belt buckle too!

nostalgic memories :: prince edward island

I camped last weekend and it reminded me of how my folks would pile all seven of us kids in their Volkswagen bus and schlep us up to PEI for weeks at a time, tent camping. A most spectacular way to spend a summer. Bare foot and fancy free.

My sister Lissy (right) and I (left). I was rough and tumble and she was always prim and proper.

The crew during a lunch break on the beach. My favorite is the pose by my eldest brother, Joe, showing off his muscles.

Happy Campers.
Happy Thursday.
