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.

2011 in review

The WordPress.com stats helper monkeys prepared a 2011 annual report for the sage atelier blog.

A screen capture from over a year ago, we’ve come a long way baby…

We noted that the data was slightly off, our most popular day was on December 26th with 1,286 hits for that day alone, thanks to Desire to Inspire’s Reading Guide 2011.

Here’s an excerpt:

The concert hall at the Syndey Opera House holds 2,700 people. This blog was viewed about 13,000 times in 2011. If it were a concert at Sydney Opera House, it would take about 5 sold-out performances for that many people to see it.

seventh sage : belt buckle line

We’re starting off the week with a new line of belt buckles. Back by popular demand, today’s feature is The Prince Edward Island Crow.

This buckle is made-to-order from an original papier collé.

I can see the image below hanging in this beauty of a kitchen. {MyHomeIdeas} and {Southern Living} … Okay, I admit, sage green is one of my favorite colors.

This is a fraction of a papier collé I’m currently working on. Working with the illustration as posted on Aug 31, 2010 (as pictured below) I have incorporated oils, as well as a layers of maps and imagery in the far background.

vincent giarrano

There is no denying that Vincent Giarrano captures sea life in ways that I have only dreamt. Fine oil paintings like these are truly a remarkable find and would be an outstanding purchase that could be passed down from generation to generation. Vincent is, without a doubt, a master of his medium.  Please go to his website where he has a variety of imagery to offer.
