Put A Cork In It!

My little obsession with cork started last week when I saw one of the chic ladies of Diane James Home sporting this great cork filled bangle at the blogger luncheon! First off  both women Caroline and Cynthia were dressed so chic and of course the accessories would be a perfect match! She shared the vendor  Robyn Brooks NY, and I have been on a cork mission ever since.
I found such amazing things made with cork that we probably take for granted and some that are so clever that I wish I thought of them.  Since cork is sustainable it's the perfect go to material when trying to go Green. Well, just take a look at how far cork as come! Every time you pop that cork..which I do a little too often you may want to save that little piece to make a DIY yourself!

Bangle Love Robyn Brooks!

Becky Davis Botanicals

I love a collection of great botanicals! They make such wonderful wall art especially when displayed in a grouping.  I feel that they mix well with other forms of art or can just stand alone and be the focal point of a space.  They are the perfect art for kitchens and dining rooms even bedrooms because they are serene and natural. One talented lady does the most beautiful botanicals and that is Becky Davis! Becky is a Southern gal who actually submerges herself into her work, I mean she literally gets in the marsh to collect grasses. Just take a look at some of her work and you too will be calling on her for a collection of your own!

To see her whole collection go HERE!

Ombre Stay Or Nay?

I know it still  seems to be the rage to have this lovely Ombre hair.  My daughter even jumped on the ombre bandwagon and if I grow my roots out I too can have Ombre for free! I also notice how this trend has moved into art and interiors  as well as attire.  What are your thoughts do you say stay or do you say nay? I am on the fence because I see some Ombre decor and hair that I think is stunning but like any trend we see it over done. Here are a few Ombre images that do make me see that it can be an art form sometimes.  Enjoy!

Okay I would never want this for myself or even my girls but you have to admit it's amazing! Credit

If I were to Ombre a space I would take inspiration from this lovely painting and it's subtle tones that seem to flow down the canvas! Credit
I just love the following images as they are not jarring but instead make for an interesting wall and accent!
