I hope you had a great day yesterday – I took a day off from writing, and that is probably going to happen a little more often because I have had a few smart people tell me that I have to preserve some of my arty energy for doing arty stuff with my hands instead of spending over an hour every day on blogging.
It makes sense – but it also makes me a little worried, because what if you then don’t remember to come see me!
So once again … to make sure that you get my updates plop in your email over there on the right – that way you’ll get my blog sent to your inbox whenever I post and you don’t have to worry about not hearing about or seeing my latest endeavours!
Also – another reminder … Press the “like” button on my BMDesign Facebook page and you’ll be able to check out what is happening over there as well.
OK … with all that said it is after all Pinterest Friday and this week I have spent some time rummaging around on there.
I had an interesting chit-chat with my son about Faberge Eggs – oh they are stunning and impressive (The closest I’ve ever come to one is the one we got for my niece for when she was Christened on the same days as my twins – Let me just clear up right away that it was just a copy but still a very very nice copy ).
I also spent time looking at Art Dolls from Kate Church (you do get a lot of overlapping when you write those two words … it’s not that I do not LOVE Catherine and William and the whole wedding … but that is not what I’m trying to look for when I want to check out Kate’s work!).
I do tend to spend a lot of time when I find an artist whose work I like. I google and I pinterest because the images you can find are just stunning.
And then I typed in “White” … because I wanted to play with colours … and then I typed in “Lime green” (which is such a happy colour but had very little I liked on that page as I would never decorate with that colour as I find it too strong for walls!).
I ended up with “Light Blue” as my choice for today. Because light blue is such a calming colour for me – it makes me feel good, I makes me calm – it makes me happy.
So let me share a few pictures that I liked
Makes you want to sew … create … make – or at least it makes me want to do it!
I’m always on a look-out for a nice bread bin … this is not at all bad!
This door makes me wonder what is on the other side – I think a stunning garden …
This … well it just made me smile … you?
Every time I see one of these guys on the road I fall a little more in love with them … does that make me old?
But it is this guy – it is this little guy that makes my heart yearn. I want one!
Ever since I went to Denmark last summer and on our first day home, while waiting for the ferry on a beautiful summers day, we wandered about and bumped into this – a FIAT 500c … in baby blue … my heart swell, my love was instant and I just knew that some day – some day I must have one … driving about, sun on my face – happy as a clam … remembering that very first gorgeous day in Denmark with my children on the harbour …
I am absolutely 100% aware that this makes no sense – but it is nevertheless true … I am in love with a car … sad … I know!
Have a wonderful weekend!
