A WONDERFUL GUIDE TO HOUSEPLANTS


Illustration by Alessandra Olanow / for MOTHERMAG

Happy Sunday dear readers. A wonderful little article about houseplants and how to properly care for some of these beloved green companions. Besides the touch of nature that they bring indoors, some of these houseplants enhance our air and act as filters for many of the harmful toxins.

HAPPY NEW YEAR!


Artist Amelia Giller for TIGERS to LILIES W 2016

Such a special way to commence this new year with one of artist/illustrator Amelia Giller's drawings for TIGERS to LILIES! I am so honored. The life cycle of an anemone, from sprout to it's last petal. This is a very special piece for me because it marks the beginning of something that I have wanted to do for a very long time: have seasonal postcards with different creatives showing me (you) what flowers/nature represents for them. I ask the question FLOWERS ARE...and they fill in the rest. They will be printed on 100% cotton cards and will have a limited run.

FLOWERS ARE...the heart in my drawings.

Amelia, thank you so much!

Happy New Year dear readers and friends! Thank you for being so patient and supportive this past year. I am always so touched with your kind words and time. May this year be a healthy, wild, and loving year for you. May the wildflowers of your heart overgrow and reach the stars.

I have been thinking a lot lately about filters. Mainly our eyes and our views and how this filters which images we capture. How we see the world. How I see flowers.

I find the two above photos of flowers resonating.

(If you recognize these images and know the photographers please do let me know - clearly I grabbed these while in a late-night internet vortex...)

NATURE MAGIQUE / Guy Bourdin








Well this certainly would make a fine gift for (me!) the holidays! A published book of late photographer Guy Bourdin exploring nature & magic. Goodness gracious sooooo good!

'The book explores the theme of nature in Bourdin’s work which seems to have had an underlying influence.'

Get your copy (and one for me) from the wonderful independent publisher Jane & Jeremy (always a favorite stand at Los Angeles Art Book Fair).
