Inspirations {February 22,2010}

My inspirations today come from a juxtaposition of Spring and Winter.  It’s been very odd weather lately: a sunny Springy day followed by a heavy snowfall, followed by another sunny day.

I am inspired by pink and white, and white on white.  The holdover from Valentine’s day has me drooling over cakes and pink dresses still, while the foot of snow on the ground keeps me loving the bleak beauty of snowy landscapes.

A shabby-esque pink flower, makes me think of cherry blossoms in snow.

I’ve always had a soft spot of Kitchenaid mixers, and the beautiful things they can help create.

This piece of art continually makes me happy to look at.
This series of pictures was taken on a snowy day by photographer Chris Stowell, of Avi (that’s my pup) dashing around chasing snowballs.  She was the happiest dog on earth that day.  Chris does great dog photography – please check out and “fan” his “Fidography” page on Facebook (click here).

The emtpiness of this photo is amazing.

 I’m reminded of a photo of Viona’s that features her in a fabulous dress, with a rough collie at her side, in the snow.  Makes me want to sew furry winter coats with big muffs and long skirts 🙂
