Really enjoying the photo apps available for your smart gadgets. I spend a lot of time by myself, out and about, to and fro, during the day. So it’s great to have a project on the go. One that you can pick up and put down. Carry with you. The best thing I’ve figured out, so far, is to not just rely on one app to edit pictures. To mix them up and to experiment.
It’s a great way to record your day. Or your OOTD. To create a visual record of your one precious life and your inner and outer travels through it.
The above is an photo from about 2 years ago. I’ve used a layering technique–the background is a mirror image of a Bauhaus-era building. I like how it turned out. Hope you do, as well.
Meanwhile. Over at Illustrated Ladies.
Love the work of Israeli designer Noa Raviv. Can’t get over the possibilities of the new technology.
It’s so fresh and modern. Just like all timeless “Avant Garde.”

Continued love for the Italian designer, Novella and the lovely items in her Etsy shop, Nivule.
So simple. Clean lines. Feminine.
Love the pop of color among the soothing neutrals.
Gosh Darn It.
I am obsessing over this Dolly, on Etsy.
She’s the Bee’s Knees.
Perfect for propping up on my desk. Surveying my domain.
She’d keep me in line. On my toes. Dontcha’ think?
(and oh, those toes!).
I love a good silent film. And really dig the move to reinvent soundtracks to a more modern aesthetic.
The band, Wurlitza just came out with a great new album, for the Louise Brooks film, Diary of a Lost Girl.
This video shows their process. Wouldn’t it be smashing to see this live? Trotting over to I-tunes, to purchase for some Sunday listening enjoyment.
When I leave for work in the morning, I am usually in a bit of a rush.
Even though I woke up in plenty of time, I am likely to forget some important thing or another.
But one thing I am always sure to have on me, at the ready, is my phone. Loaded with some good tunes.
You see, it’s one mile to work. One mile back again.
A great small stretch of the legs. Enough to get your heart pounding. And ready for the day to come.
And I thing that if you have to hoof it, you might as well swing it, too.
Why yes, I am!
Hope you are having a fun St. Patrick’s Day.
The only thing of note, this year, is that I am officially addicted to Irish Soda Bread. I have only just discovered this sweet baked good in the past few years. I love it when it is “that time” again and I see it in the market. All that lovely rock sugar…
You can read more about its history and get some delish recipes to make it, should you be so inclined, here. And like I said before–I didn’t know a thing about it until I happened to try it not that long ago.
If you haven’t yet tried it, the best way to describe it is this: “When a Scone and a Challah love each other very much…”
Try it. You’ll like it!
Now–are you wearing the green, or am I going to have to reach through the screen and give you SUCH a pinch? Well?
