junie b. jones for halloween

Ruby chose to be Junie B. Jones for Halloween.
(a popular kindergarten + first grade book series)
As my daughter, she should know by now that some creativity
needs to go into it.
She selected one of her favorites, 'The Mushy Gushy Valentime',
and whaLA!...We put her IN the book.

jonathan adler

I was in Boston last weekend with my girlfriends and a trip
is never complete without a little shopping.
We hit Newbury Street and I finally checked out
Jonathan Adler in person.
Fun furniture and accessories in great colors!
Here's a sample of what caught my eye.

My girls and I out the night before.

leg warmer trend

Leg warmers are back!
...but fortunately they've been updated since
the 'Flashdance' era.
Love these I found on the runway.

...then I had to try them myself.
Here they are updating my 4 year old ankle boots.
Very comfy!

fall porch scene

Here's my front porch embracing helps that the sun is shining.
The Indian corn wreath makes it complete, a gift picked up at a local farm by my friend Paola.

art displays

I love the tight-knit horizontal row of pictures
grouped over this desk.
When photos or any objects are displayed unconventionally, it's more interesting and has a stronger impact.

This grouping works because each piece is simple
and they compliment each other.
I love the way they have it displayed to the floor.

This wall is eye catching because of the
common subject matter and great colors.

The Iconic Design Museum Holon Building outside Tel Aviv is a public art museum in progress for the last 4 years. I love the different shades of red and beautiful steel ribbon-like facade!
