Once Upon a Fish Tale



I am constantly in awe of all of the natural wonder that surrounds us.   I'm always looking out for the little pockets of magic cropping up in the small areas of nature that I can find in our town just outside of Chicago.  I always love the woods, but the lakefront always provides something special in the summer time, and the flora cropping up on the lakefront grounds are truly breathtaking!

I just love finding those perfect little moments in nature where a scene frames itself perfectly.  I'm always looking for the way a tree can almost hug a small moment of nature with it's branches — and its amazing the ways that these scenes can shift over the seasons!  For instance, most of why the scene below is so striking was from the heavy rains we had recently, totally flooding out the valley of sand dunes here.  See how this same area looked so different just months ago in the winter!

Redesigning the Patio


We've lived in our current apartment for going on three years now, and one of the big selling points for us moving here was the unexpected outdoor space!  So it feels so silly that we are only now getting around to making it more hang-out friendly, but such is life!

My July Capsule Wardrobe




Hey there, lovelies!

It's simultaneously hard to believe it's July already, and also hard to believe that it is still 2020 at this point in the year.  But here we are in the deep of summer, hanging out on our balconies and trying to make the best of the world we're in right now.  

When I started to concept my month capsule for July, the obvious color palette seemed to be the iconic red white and blue inspired by the Fourth of July, so I decided to run with it but still try to not make it too America - centric.  Sort of Americana inspired with a vintage quirky girly twist so as to stay true to my own personal style tendencies :)  Also strawberries and bonfire attire were major influences!

Putting Up the Stars in the Sky

       


When I was a kid, I used to think that people lived under the stoplights, switching the colors manually for every traffic cycle.  Obviously, at some point I learned the actual process involved in traffic lights, but things like this and lying looking up at the ceiling + imagining it was actually the floor seems like some deep rooted ideas in my mind about seeing the world in an alternative way.  I think it's daydreams like these that inspire a lot of my ideas for art, and so I'm leaning way in!!!

Like, what if one lone fairy was responsible for putting the stars and moon up each night?  What would that be like?
