I’m in the mood for blue and white,
and this lineup inspires me to mosey into
a naturally lit room, grab a paintbrush and blank
canvases, and go blueberry wild.
British painter Howard Hodgkin’s Brush fabric, created for Designers Guild
The vintage fabric you see above?
It’s Brunschwig & Fils, and I found a custom
valance made from it at an estate sale and sold
it to a very happy customer!
Would you, could you?
I swear I would wear this better than
the model and with a great big megawatt smile.
Yesssss, that sure is swaggerly talk from a past her prime pip squeak.
But just maybe Valentino is reading…stranger things have happened here, dude.
the enchanted home
I do believe I could cozy down in Tina’s logia
and maybe sing for my crostini and blueberry crisp here.
If winter weather and all the white stuff has you feelin blue,
I hope these images deliver some cheer.

I hope you know you are quite enough just as you are,
blue hair, ew hair, or no hair,
with or without a blockbluster blog,
despite your achievements or work success…
just listen to what someone wise suggests:
“…do not depend on the hope of results. …you may have to face the fact that your work will be apparently worthless and even achieve no result at all, if not perhaps results opposite to what you expect. As you get used to this idea, you start more and more to concentrate not on the results,
but on the value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself.” (thomas merton)

The value, the rightness, the truth of the work itself.
Isn’t that a lovely reminder!?!
Peace to you right where you are.
