Cherry Blossoms

Japan is a place that holds a lot of space in my imagination, even though I have never been there before. It is a place that I almost recognize as home when I see pictures, yet I have never stepped foot there. My friend Cheri sent this beautiful little blog along my way and it got me daydreaming...

Books as Centerpieces?

 OK, so I'm in the thoughts of using old books as centerpieces. Still in the process of working it through so that it looks elegant and sophisticated, but mostly so that it could stand on it's own on a huge table or credenza, or heck, over a fireplace even? 

I really wish that computer screens had a scratch n' sniff feature because I really want to share with you the celestial scent these beauties give off. Absolutely lovely. Absolutely intoxicating.

One more thing. If you need a 20 second visual vacation or, if you're anything like me and resisting the onset of the cold weather a bit, have a peek at this: peek-a-boo.

I wish everyone a lovely beginning to a wonderful week*

Tahitian Landscape

I was going through some old Polaroids of mine and found these. Tropical climates are definitely one of my favorites because everything grows so lush and full. 
I love the pool.
I love the colors of the flowers.
I love the mountains in the background.
I love the sheets tied out to dry.

Ryan Fitzgerald

I happened upon Ryan Fitzgerald's photography and immediately was drawn to the light he captures and the sense of world that it creates. I'm not sure if you've ever tried to capture the splendor of forests, but it's not that easy. It's all about capturing the right light at the right moment. His imagery is clear, lush and very much crisp. 
In these images, I very much want to be transported to these places and sit still in them for a while. Like taking a nap under the tree in the first picture...
