Watery Goodness

Did you ever wet a piece of paper and hold a marker to the surface, watching the ink slowly spread into its outermost fibers? That's pretty much the closest I ever got to water color painting. I still look at water color images in much the same way -- checking out the edges, tracing the outline of the pigments' run for the border. So today is my homage to the glorious transparency of water. And color. Hopefully I can make it through this post before jumping the backyard fence and rushing the neighbor's pool.

Abracadabra, homies. How do you like that magic?

Have a good one!

ONE day of daycare and I already have a snot encrusted kid batting big, glazed puppy dog eyes at me... needless to say the bloggy might get short shrift this week. Not to fear -- eye candy is still coming your way. Without my witty repartee, you'll just have to insert your own comments. Feel free to share them with me. I like reading your thought nuggets. Without further ago, check out this gorgeous place designed by antiques dealer Florence Lopez.

The color palette reminds me somewhat of the brazilliant room designed by Emily Henderson in her inaugural episode of Secrets of a Stylist.

You did watch it, right?
