A few slices of my Life

I seriously am not going to name each of my posts "ode to" something. People don't even use that word anymore.

So I've been thinking about a few different things I could blog about. And I was thinking how I sort of have an icon for each area of my life that I love. First music,

Sarah Groves for sure. And Keith Green, even though they're several decades apart. But who says it better than the two of them? If one of them doesn't say it, the other does. And both in their own unique way. And Sara just isn't my hero in music. She's my hero in justice. Check out what she supports with her tours and you'll see what I mean.

And Sara has a blog! I just checked it out and it's pretty cool, with a post about Azizi and beautiful artisans from Kenya. 

Next: girl stuff. Such as beauty.
Nuf said.

Color and style. Hats off to Emily Henderson. And what is it with the color taupe?? Look at that first room. It's AMAZING...Has taupe always been well known to be amazing? Or is it in style now like bright orange was in style in the 70's?

It's in the pillows by the way. A lovely accent color. 

So I'm boring today. But I'm loving life whether you can tell or not. And my job. That's not bad either. I'll let you know about it some other time.

Ode to Purple and Silver

Lately I've been playing with greys and purples. Silvers and taupes. That kind of thing. Tauped (a beautiful earthy purple nail color by Sonia Kashuk) was named one of the must have colors for Fall 2010. I was smiling cause I had just bought it. Sonia Kashuk nail colors saved me a lot of money. I was contemplating getting a manicure when I tried her nail polish instead. I expected it to chip off like everything else. A week later it was still as good as new. Who needs acrylics?

I got this amazing dolphin grey gypsy shirt at Kohl's for about $4 (I love the 70% clearance racks) that I LOVE. And I love to pair it with either my taupe nails or my sparkly silver ones. 

With all the silvers and taupes dancing around in my head, I logged on to facebook to see a picture of my nephew and his first homecoming. (What happened to him? How did he turn 16 already?)

I guess this is turning into a color blog. I like color and color combinations.
