Music Monday: A Beatle Birthday

It's my birthday week (YAAAAAAYYYYY!!!) and I LOVE my birthday! So this week I am going to be posting things birthday related starting today.

Personally, my favorite band is The Beatles and therefore I only found it appropriate for me to feature their birthday song in this week's Music Monday post. The Beatles are also making waves this year because the 50th Anniversary of their first visit to America is coming up next month!

So if your birthday happens to be on Wednesday, like mine, Oprah and Tom Selleck's is...then sign along with us!

Art Talk Tuesday: Jerry Brem

This weekend was the annual Beaux Arts Festival on the campus of the University of Miami. As a committee member I get to "work" the festival and meet a good number of artists. This Saturday while enjoying 66 degree weather (brrrrr), I had the opportunity to deliver snacks to Jerry Brem, a friendly and talented artist. Turns out Jerry like Me is a parent to young children, and was such a delight to talk to. His canvases struck me and I hope you will like what you see too. 

Working in mixed media, Jerry's canvases have motion to them and really feel lived. He smudges and drips his everyday objects into beautiful works of art. Based in South Carolina, by way of Texas, Jerry travels the festival circuit so be sure to look on his website for a list of festivals you can see his work at.

Art Talk Tuesday: Primary Lines

Happy Tuesday! I'm working on plotting out a gallery space and having to draw the floor plan by hand (before digitizing)... so I'm thinking geometrically. That's what today's drawing is inspired from...simple geometry and primary colors.

Have a great day!

Music Monday: Overheard Last Night at the Golden Globes

For well over a month now I've been in love with Counting Stars by One Direction. it's such a great song, good to hype you up for the day, ramp you up to deal with traffic on the way home and so much more! Last night they kept playing it during the red carpet coverage of the Golden Globes, and I realized that my 3 year old Mini also seems to be a  big fan as she started singing along. So this week I'm feeling inspired by Counting Stars.

             Counting Stars, One Republic 

Hope you had a great weekend!

Thursday Threads: Tickled Pink

Most of you know that the pantone color for the year is radiant orchid...a purple shade which I can work with. When I saw the color it reminded me how big a fan I am of another feminine color,
Kate Spade
pink. Here are some pink finds that have me tickled pink, and I hope you will like too! Are you a fan of the color pink?


 Banana Republic.

Goodness I have been SO SO SO utterly and completely bad at this since I became prego! I am going to make a HUGE point to pick things back up. I hope you will forgive me.
