Childhood morals

In so many ways, the lessons we learned as children are so very simply the most important ones we will ever learn in life. I love the profound message in this letterpress drawn by 6-year-old Koen and digitally-arranged by his father. The print can be found at Beast Pieces and was printed by Studio On Fire. Does it not make you smile, too? :)

Papier d'art

I recently discovered the wonderfully talented paper and copper pipe sculptor Anna-Wili Highfield. It is just amazing that she can create such life and beauty from something as simple and two-dimensional as paper. It inspires me to be able to find art in the things that surround me in life.

San Francisco, Open Your Golden Gates!

Ah, the lovely San Francisco! I absolutely adore this city; it's got such character, wouldn't you say? I love the hilly landscapes, and the fabulous shopping districts. And although I've lived in northern California for ten years now, there still worlds of discovery that awaits across the Golden Gates. Lately, I have been yearning to check out the thrift stores in San Francisco-- I keep hearing such wonderful discoveries from fellow bloggers! Hopefully I will get to go soon. :)

What's your favorite city? Why do you love it?

Swept away into a fairytale.

...and they lived happily ever after. How whimsical and interesting to have a wedding dress straight out of a fairytale! I absolutely love these photographs taken by Eugenio Recuenco. I think they capture a hauntingly darker--yet achingly beautiful-- side of the classic childhood stories we grew up with. Imagine walking down the aisle wrapped up in something as magical as that!

I am currently taking a Comparative Literature class for fairytales, and it is so fascinating to read the different versions from various cultures across the world! Oh, how it makes me wish I could have my own happy ending...

Monsieur et Madame 'Popsicle Sticks'

These adorable little figurines made by A.M. Victoria just make me want to squeal with delight; what a fantastic and innovative way to use recycled wood!

Blushing Roses

As of late, my favorite clothing color has been a pale, peachy pink. It reminds me of romance, blushes, and rose petals. Not to mention, it makes me feel instantly pretty.

What color do you fancy most?

Little Whimseys

Emily Dorn of Precious Meshes has caught my eye with her most delightful jewelry pieces. I especially love that bird nest... :)

Thank you everyone for the warm wishes for Snow Pea! He is making wonderful progress, but he is still being hospitalized with very attentive care. Your prayers have truly made a difference!

Please hear my prayer.

This morning my beloved dog Snow Pea was viciously attacked by a wild animal. Right now, he is in severely critical condition, and there is a chance that he may not make it through the end of the week. If he survives, there is a possibility that he will be paralyzed for life in his face and neck. Please help me pray for him and give him the strength to fight through this. He means so much to me, and I love him so.
