Anemone flowers are my latest obsession. I love the delicate peals, the pastel colors, juxtaposed against that huge dark spot of a center. They are beautiful and striking, and I can’t get enough of them.
So today’s color love post is an homage to these beautiful flowers. Enjoy!
TA DAA! This one of the hardest posts to date! Hope you guys enjoyed it!
I have run across this typographical art print more times than I can even tell you.
And I think I fall in love with it all over again each time I see it. I love the message and what it has to say, and I love the colors. You already know I love typographical prints. But anyway, this lead me to discover the creator of these prints, Kavan & Co, and I was blown away. Check out some of these awesome prints.
I love the positive messages in these prints. I hope you do, too. And i hope you love the creative colors, bold wording and interesting choices that the artist has made. All of these prints are available on Society6. Even as a phone cover!
It is officially spring down south. I can tell by all of the pollen all over everywhere. And by the warmer temperatures. The April showers, and the bumble bees. So in honor of that, I’m doing a post dedicated to the beautiful colors of spring flowers that are popping up everywhere. Focusing primarily on tulips.

I have been majorly slacking on my DIY posts, guys. I’m terribly sorry. But today I’ve got one to share with you guys that I think you’re going to really enjoy. It’s one I’ve been meaning to try myself, but just haven’t found the time to get around to it.
It’s a DIY for an adorable braided rug found over on A Beautiful Mess. The blog is written by Emma and Elsie, and they give you the most thorough explanation for how to create this adorable rug.
I can’t wait to tackle this one on my own. I love their color choices, but I would love to customize this rug perfect for my space. I just have to decide exactly where I want to put it, and then go from there. Head on over to Elsie’s and Emma’s blog for the step by step details on how to create this rug.
Wild Wednesday: Wind & Willow — WOW!
How’s that for some alliteration?
I came across this shop while browsing around etsy the other day when I fell in love with these adorable little planters.
When I went to the shop home, I fell even deeper in love with all of the adorable products offered by Wind & Willow. Araya from Minneapolis does an amazing job creating modern, beautiful, and useful pieces of wooden art.
I would like one of everything, please. Thank you! Do you guys love these wooden masterpieces or what?! I can’t decide if I like the dark colored wood or the light colored wood more, but I know for sure that I love the paint choices made on each and every one of them! So creative! These would look great in any kitchen. Perfect for wedding presents!
Shades of pink have been seriously catching my eye lately. I’m 99% sure it’s because one of my friends is getting married and it’s in her color palette. But this dusty pink color with touches of peach and maybe some other gentle colors like mint is really rocking my world right now.
For example: This is amazing.
Which leads me to this:
And then I’m off!
So serene. So ethereal. So beautiful.
New artist of the day: Hannah Ward. Hannah’s work is of a darker nature than most of the artist’s works that I feature, but I was awed by her color choices and the movement within her subjects.
Hannah states that her art is driven by the “physical breakdown of the body, paralleling a flow of energies.” And that is easy to see within her paintings. She also says she focuses on local woodland animals and she is quoted as saying, “Their bodies form a totemic language through which I process my environment.”
While that sounds overwhelming, her paintings are not. They are simplistic in parts: just line drawings. But they are also full of the life force she mentions, and the draining of this force is evident within her paintings.
While she has many other works that are different, this series titled “Drain” is absolutely my favorite. Partly because of the rich bold colors depicting the life force draining from these animals, and partly because, at the moment, I am obsessed with deer. Not bucks. Just fawns and does. Weird, right?
Anyway, I enjoyed these works of art, and I hope you guys did, too!
How much do you love tea towels? There are so many different styles out there now that you can pretty much get anything you want. They are the perfect way to spice up your kitchen without putting too much effort (or any) in to it. Tea towels offer an affordable option for kitchen decor without any permanent changes. You can even use them for wall art if it suits your fancy. Here’s a roundup of some of my current faves.
What do you guys think? Do you love tea towels? I know I do! I’m always expanding my collection!
