MMXI::FOUR

Yes, another chandelier, I have 347 days left of my photo edit-a-day project and guess what?  This is not the last chandelier you will be seeing.  Unbeknownst to me, I have quite a predilection for these lighting fixtures and have shot them ad nauseam.  I write unbeknownst, because I didn’t realize the sheer volume of images I had collected of these shiny beasts until I started digging through my old photographs. These are photo’s that I obviously had enough time to shoot, upload, never look at or touch again.  What is wrong with me?  

This beauty though, you will never see another new photograph of.  She is like the Yeti of chandeliers, breathtaking in her enormity and completely once in lifetime, (if that) sighting. I shot this on a trip to the famed Hotel Del Coranado, a magnificent Victorian structure right on the ocean.  I opened fire in the lobby and was quickly escorted out.  Photo’s are off limits inside the Hotel Del lobby.  Perhaps, everywhere on the property?  I wasn’t there long enough to find out. Maybe one day I will be commissioned to shoot all the grand chandeliers of the world and they will invite me to come back.  For now this is what I have oh and the ‘before’ photo of course.

HAPPY MLK DAY

Martin Luther King Jr. had a dream.  I too have a dream, it involves moving into the house where this Frenchie resides gnawing on it’s jowls whilst gloating over how well my fawn Frenchie coordinate’s with my natural linen covered furniture. Miss Andree of On Linden Way sent this to me. She obviously has heck of great taste in cute, this image looks like it was made to be on the Besotted Brand blog, no? I worship it.  Thank you to both Miss Andree and Miss Aubrey Rose for sharing this with the world.

AUBIN & WILLS

There’s not much to say about this brand that you can’t concur with your own eyeballs.  Aubin & Wills is flip, flappin’ jackin’ awesome. I thought I was so clever with my dancing elephants but alas a fox in a top hat may trump the trotting duo, maybe. It seems that the collective animal inspiration has shifted from owls as muse to foxes which is fine by me as I was getting tired of those big creepy eyes starring back at me from every blog and Etsy shop.  I can deal with a sly, debonair fox any day. You really ought to go over to the Aubin & Wills shop and check out all the goodness for yourself, because there’s not much prose I can add that will surpass the enticing visuals that lay ahead of you. Fox in a top hat?  Why didn’t I think of that?

ALICE MELVIN

This screenprint by artist Alice Melvin is fantastic! Colors are nice and muted, a creamy background and talent in spades. Perfect for all the mod wanna-be ornithologists out there. Those do exist don’t they?

J.R. WATKINS

I find that cleaning the house with these products makes me so much happier than what I was using prior. Any product that makes you look forward to your home chores is a winner in my book.  Bonus, they work and you can buy them at Target!  Yes, of course I would be even happier if I was giving these to my maid to clean my home, but alas the only maid in residence right now is me.
