illustrator erin petson . . .

. . . i haven't been posting as often, but hey it's summer & things seem to move a little slow for me during the summer months.  i've also been on a little mini break from work this past week - still doing a little bit of work from home, but for the most part i've been sleeping in & just enjoying hanging around & going to lunch with everyone i don't usually get to see during the work week. 

today, i thought i'd share the lovely work of erin petson - she's one of my favorite illustrators! i love how her drawings depict very quite, solemn moments.

well, i'm off to have a very late lunch with my other half - lebanese second day in a row!

. . . wishing everyone a sunny weekend! 


iris apfel . . . she's fabulous!

native american necklace, c. late 30's early 40's, 
with silver turquoise onyx & bear claws

. . . i know, i know...it's burning up outside, especially here in dallas, & i'm showing you heavy coats & over the knee boots - but what i'm loving about these pics is iris apfel's amazing jewelry! 

i think dressing up or down should be a creative experience. exciting. fun. for me the key to personal style lies in accessories. i love objects form different worlds, different eras, combined my way. never uptight, achieving - hopefully - a kind of throwaway chic - iris apfel

. . . isn't she fabulous!  i'd wear any of these necklaces or cuffs with a simple tee, tank top or sundress!
