Obsession with the Beautiful the Fantastical and the Anatomical

6 Mar

Long before I learned the meaning behind Día de los Muertos I fell in love with the brightly colored botanical painted skulls. There was beauty in the most unlikeliest of places and I wanted to see more.

I’ve started collecting images here on Pinterestin a pinboard dedicated solely to this style of art.

I also threw my girlfriend Jade a bit of a mini fiesta last year in the same theme:

A Bit Mod After All…Our Upstairs Hideaway, LeLounge

24 Feb

After living here for 2 years and treating our upstairs as a storage area for my {verdigreen} shop and an off-limit tease to the kids (no thanks to the stairwell of doom…an iron spiral staircase which proved too dangerous for tots) I *finally* organized, unpacked, and surprised hubs with furniture for Christmas last year. It was well worth the wait as we now use this room several times per week. It’s our game-watching hangout, our family game night rec room, and my packing/shipping/picture-taking showroom for Etsy-ing. Since it’s completely separate from the rest of our house I opted for a more funky vintage mod look to give us a change in scenery when we head upstairs. The picture gallery below is a work in progress as I have a few angles left to take once the room is complete (or before I change it all again.)
