Summer on the Chesapeake

My family and I went for a short visit last weekend to my Aunt Jan's house in Gloucester, Virginia. I've said it before, and I'll say it again: I love this house. I posted about this house a couple years ago when I went up for Thanksgiving here. Last time I didn't take any photos of the living room, but this time around I was sure to. We spent the majority of the visit outdoors, however, so I took a lot of pictures in the backyard and along the inlet.

Beth Hoeckel: Inspiration

While perusing The Jealous Curator the other day, I stumbled upon the work of artist Beth Hoeckel. She works with paint, collage, and mixed media to create these wonderfully playful, retro works of art. Each piece evokes in me a sense of fantasy and wonder but at the same time a bit of nostalgia.  In these next few weeks of summer, I'm hoping to jump back into the art world and have some fun for a small break from design.

Store Room Details

Lisa Sherry's store room is piled high with design products, all of which I wanted to take home for myself.  Here are a few snapshots I took on my last day in this treasure trove.
