these colorful geometric photographs are taken by the photographer Michael Wolf. i've seen these images around the web and every time i see the tight but almost whimsical city living spaces... it makes me feel a bit cramped. i do however love all the colors + lights! i enjoy photography that makes you feel something. anything, really! i think an artist that can bring an emotion to the surface... is doing a pretty good job.

what do you think when you see these images??
i for one... feel very thankful for my backyard full of grass, flowers, and a vegetable garden.

HAPPY friday!

FLOWER CROWNS... do you dare?

July 01, 2013

if you're the bride-to-be, a guest to a wedding, at a summer picnic, or a chic spring-time party... would you dare to sport a Flower Crown??? in theory i would LOVE to say yes, of course i would! with out a doubt! no problemo! but i'm just not sure i could pull off the entire floral crown. like the whole shabang. do you feel the same way? maybe we should start with a half crown, a pretty cluster, or the braided version (like photo above). well, what about you??? are you jumping on the floral bandwagon?

*what about overall's??? do you dare?

... i think i'm going to give it a try!
