That's what Sarah tells us. It makes sense too. You find an artist whose work you love, and copy one of their paintings to learn how to create the same effect. So, I copied this Kenton Nelson painting (original here. It was also in Something's Gotta Give - above the fireplace in the bedroom!).
I'm really happy with the way it turned out. It's hanging over my fireplace mantel now!
Also, Sandi has been learning to paint like Kelly Reemtsen. She has done some wonderful stuff, but decided she would try something totally original. So I modeled for her!
Then she gave it to me! It's in my dining room!
I've been enjoying my painting classes so much! Of course, it helps that I have such a wonderful teacher! Check out the Lemley House Art Guild blog to see works by some of the other wonderful artists!

Can my next house puh-lease look like this?
At least on the outside - I could SO put that on the ocean. Um...assuming I do get to move there one day.
AND a white kitchen with an antler chandelier? Be still my heart....

Go check out the Southern Living Article. The rest of the house is beautiful too!

I love Anthropologies newest fashion set...I think.
I mean, in part it reminds me of summer barbecues....
But then, it also reminds me a little bit of mission trips to Mexico when I was in high school.
Had a lot of fun on those!
Also reminds me of a sorority luau we had my freshman year. Also fun!
So I want to go to Anthropologie's party. In that shack on the beach.
Join the party here.
See other Anthropologie posts here!

I'm constantly inspired by my collection of vintage cameras, and I've been saving images of fabulous ladies and their cameras for a while, so I thought I'd share them. Enjoy!
