Here are a few of the things that make me take a second look right now….

I am particularly intrigued by the look of the old and the new together; the modern and the aged look all at once.  I am finding that I can mix these two things in my house and in my life and get a pretty cool result.  I have added a few things here and there over the years, but am just now realizing that combing your tastes makes for a great style.  I am currently looking for some vintage letters for a spot in my house that is already picked.  Pictures will follow when I find the right mix.  Half of the fun is the hunt I think.

Vintage Letters

 See how cool this looks…I love it.  Lot’s of interest.

Red and white quilts.  I love them.  They are crisp and clean and you can’t miss the amazing workmanship that goes into these.  Last year in New York City at the Armory there was a quilt show of over 650 red and white pieces from one amazing
collection. The story of this show is here.

Here is a youtube video that tells more about the show:  Red & White Quilt Show.

I am still bummed that I missed it!

I am sure that this is no surprise, but I like the idea of a quilt anywhere.  And, there is a rich history in our country of the quilt barn.  In fact, there are trails that criss cross the United States in search of quilt barns.  Go here to American Quilt Barns to find out more.

I wonder where I can paint a quilt block….without having a barn of course.

 These vertical gardens are everywhere … and I love them.  They are so cleaver and really cool.  I also like the door wreathes made out of live succulents.  This is on my project list.  Here is a great “how to” … Vertical Succulent Garden.

 It’s almost summer.  I got my first pedicure of the season.  Tory Burch.  Sandals.  Need I say anymore?
