Country Livin'

Perhaps having a view of the ocean is a little cliche... rolling midwestern countryside could be just as pleasing. Especially if it is from this fabulous little country retreat in this month's Elle Decor. Wouldn't you love to sip cocktails in the middle of a field like this? I have never been to a bonfire where the accommodations were so lovely!

I always love fashion illustrations but these by David Downton are particularly fantastic.

Large Quill Art

I found these gorgeous black and white fluid paintings by Shinichi Maruyama that are nothing short of spectacular.

Gummy Zoloft

Happy Pills is a tiny little candy store in the UK that is designed to look like pharmaceuticals. I think its adorable...all the packaging in First AID boxes and pill bottles, too cute!

By the Sea

Not that my travels have been extensive but there are few places on earth better than Seaside, Florida. Cozy accommodations, darling decor, white sandy beaches, cocktails by the dozens and by the pool, outdoor dining, shopping and sunshine. What more could a girl ask for? More time there I suppose.

Baa Baa Black Sheep

Black Sheep Pizza is located in the Warehouse District of downtown Minneapolis, Minnesota. I love quaint restaurants and this is one of the more charming ones that I have been to recently. The restaurant itself is simple with great artwork and taste - the same as the menu which is simple and delicious - all the pizza is cooked in a coal fired oven. I loved their logo, which invoked a darling little black sheep or perhaps... a cloud of coal dust ???

Christina Drejenstam

I always love black ink and watercolor paintings - especially these in particular by Christina Drejenstam.

This Cat's life

Cute cat furniture is difficult to find - and expensive! These two items are so chic - they could almost add seamlessly to the right wall. I wonder if my two little fatties would even fit!

Tree Living

These are the most unbelievable tree houses I have ever seen. Not only would I have loved one as a child - I want one now!
