Green just makes me happy. I’ve been living in our green gingham pleated skirt and our woven green and white checked bag. Love this combo! I even wore this skirt on the plane to Stockholm. It is so comfy.
Fine Art & Flowers
While in Stockholm, we visited the national museum's exhibit entitled “The Garden: Six Centuries of Art and Nature.” It was so inspiring.
Loving this easy, special dress and our mesh rhinestone flats for summer. Can wear this to the farmer’s market and then straight out to a fancy dinner.
I recently got the chance to visit an exhibit of miniature rooms at the Chicago School of the Arts Institute, which is one of the most inspiring things I’ve ever seen, combining my love of doll houses and interior design. The miniature rooms have to be seen in person to truly be appreciated, created by Narcissa Niblack Thorne, who employed architects and craftspeople during the Depression.
I have never seen bigger peonies in my life than I did in Copenhagen and Stockholm. They didn’t look real! I sent a photo to my mom and she sent me back pictures of the peonies she had grown in her garden — just as stunning.
For our 20th wedding anniversary on June 14th, I asked illustrator Emily from Hartland to draw twenty things from our twenty years married for Brian, including a drawing of these very special doggies!
