Mmmm Meat

I promise this is the last of the Seattle photos (there were so many that I had to share!) These two meat/fish signs are so pretty. I love the warm glow of the signs coupled with the icy cold of the lights in the background. Enjoy...


Rusty Beauty

As I mentioned, I was in Seattle. We went to the SAM (Seattle Art Museum) outdoor sculpture garden on a rare sunny day. I captured this trio of photos and I am in love with them (especially the one of my parents). I'm thinking of printing the close-up as a large print. It has an almost paint-like quality to it. The most amazing thing is that all of these were taken with an iPhone and the Hipstamatic app.

Flea Market Validation

While perusing a shop this weekend, I came across this lamp that bears a near identical resemblance to the lamp that I created a few weeks back. 

Now look closer...the lamp is $195...that's right one-hundred and ninety five dineros. If you will recall, I bought the lamp at the flea market for $8 and attached a $7 lightbulb on top. Further proof that flea markets are magical. Stay tuned because this Sunday is the 1st of May, and you know what that means ;-)

Postcards from Seattle

I was home in Seattle this past weekend and I had a magical time. We went to the famous Pike Place Market and acted like tourists. The tulips were in full bloom. I captured some beautiful pictures (more to come later this week)...

Rest for the Weary

There is something so tempting about a big, fluffy white hotel-style bed. Don't you just want to run and jump face-first into these beds?!

Romantic Gray

These photos just sort of came together. They are romantic, monochromatic and sweet. Enjoy!

Killer Sandwich Combos

So those that know me that I am a sucker for salty/sweet food. In fact, nearly everything that I eat must be a combination of both. Recently I have discovered sandwiches at my two favorite local places, Boxed Foods and Crepe au Chocolate. These sandwich combinations have the perfect mix. The are innovative and creatively un-sandwichlike.

Coming Up Cherries

While out and about this weekend, I saw the cherry blossoms blooming. They are so beautiful. 


I love when they are brought indoors for a stunning arrangement. Any branches with spring flowers are a dramatic addition to your decor. The best part? You don't even need that many to make a statement.

Inspired Baker

With the warmer weather right around the corner, I have been craving some delicious berry pie. By coincidence, a new foodie blogger/photographer I have been following (Matt Bites) just posted about his trials and tribulations about pie making. Maybe I'll eventually make my own pie!
