Ran across the styling of Tina Hellberg and just loved her series of wallpaper displays. The arrangement is so great!

Hope you're week is going well!

I'm needing a little color today as I've spent the last 5 hours researching party concepts and proposals. Gorgeous paintings to browse through here. You won't be disappointed.

And next I need a little computer break...

Happy Monday!

How was your weekend? Mine was great! Yesterday was spent at a 6-hr neighborhood block party. And I am worn out. Not sure I am ready to tackle all my work projects this week, but more than grateful to develop relationships with those that live closest to me. #rewardingwork

And these simply styled nature images are just the inspiration I need...to foster my dream of someday starting a second (Oi vey!). But for now another week begins. Make it a good one!

Not sure where this week went. It was Tuesday, and now it's Friday...and I'm not sure what happened in between. But I do know suddenly I'm loving the bits of cool weather and longing to break out the scarves and boots. This photo captures it perfectly. Cozy fall.

Have a splendid weekend!
