2013, Where will you take us?

We cannot wait to see what sparkling adventures 2013 has in store. From the looks of it, it is shaping up to be one of the best yet! 

So if we’re going to be flitting about, shouldn’t we have some sassy travel gear? Why, yes…

#Oh Joy 
That’s So Euro!

beautiful painted canvas bags for life’s miscellany 


pretty black vases to put your market flowers in

Don’t you just love when someone asks where you got something and the answer is “at a flea market in france”, the GC def does. Now thanks to a site called Cachette you can, and that’s without having to buy a pricey plane ticket. (boo gas prices)

The site (co-founded by Anglo-French lovers who abandoned London to start a life — and the business — in the South of France) is packed to the hilt with whimsical, precious and decadent goods befitting a European fantasy. Enjoy lovers.

"Imperfection is boring" has been a life motto of mine for some time now. Great news! It’s now, according to The New York Times, the new make-up trend for 2012! (obviously not because of anything I have done, however I am in full support) Full article here
The look is a ‘roll out of bed’ make-up look. Sounds great to me. What do yall think? 
Polished or bed-head?

It’s a day late, but Happy St. Patrick’s Day! We got a bit excited yesterday at PieLab and decided to turn everything green. For example, this cheesecake!

Meet Ol’ Joe. 
He is an artist, that a friend and I met at the Kentuck Art Festival this fall in Northport, AL. Full of “life nuggets” it was a joy to talk to him and I can’t wait to go back and visit him next year.

2nd Chance Kids is a photo series one of my co-workers did on some of our students from last semester. I have to admit I am a little partial, I think they are absolutely breathtaking, so is all of RaMell’s work.

Traveling back to Greensboro after a great vacation with loved ones had me feeling a little blue, then I drove right underneath this bridge. What a happy and such a reminder that life is beautiful. 

*i didn’t take this photo, however, i did drive underneath this bridge last night.
