Weekend Reading + Random Thoughts
April 12, 2013
I’ve spent a lot of time outdoors this week on purpose, the weather here has been so perfect and I’m just soaking it all in. I walked out into my yard late last night and could see the stars so clearly and everything underneath it coming to life again. It felt good to breathe in the night air and know that spring is happening.
Can I tell you that I’m crushing hard on the painterly trend?
I’ve been obsessed for a while and even have a few versions of my own I’ve created for fabrics (coming soon!) I love most anything with abstract brushstrokes or watercolors and how fun that it’s appearing everywhere from fashion to decor.
Speaking of trends, I’m 100% in love with this mottled paint ombre wall.
I posted a few more articles over at BH&G, here are the links:
In family news, I watched my son break his first board with a running kick and get a yellow belt in Tae Kwon Do this week. My daughter also blew the biggest bubble possible inside her batting helmet. Two very proud family moments – my kids they got skillz.
In creativity news, I had a Shrink Film #craftfail happen a few days ago. I started to write a post about it but haven’t finished. It was one hot mess of a project with a pathetic end – meanwhile here are 17 more Pinterest fails to keep it real.
Mad Men through a 21st century lens – cool.
“Faux Realities” and the pressures of social media – well said.
My latest post at My Colortopia: semi DIY shelves.
In entertainment news, I started watching the BBC Sherlock series on iTunes and got through three episodes. I’m on the fence about continuing, I think I just really want to stare at Jude Law as Dr. Watson (update: from the movie version). Those who’ve watched it, should I keep going with the series?
Another ‘Best of the Blogosphere’ post is coming up on Sunday, wow there are some great ideas in this roundup. Have a great weekend!
