Blogging is NOT floating my boat.

2015-01-07T06:27:56.428-05:00

WHATEVER FLOATS YOUR BOAT.and these days, for me, it is NOT blogging.it has been a bit over a year since i posted here last.I spent some time this morning cleaning up my sidebar links - i was sadly surprised to see how many other blogs have become defunct or neglected. blogs i had read for years have just stopped or disappeared all together - all of a sudden i felt left in the dust, wondering what these creative people had been up to. why did they stop blogging?  what are they doing now? how are they? bloggers, where are YOU?Well. I'm still around. I'm still creating, painting and making.I'm working on a new website.I'm selling original items and artwork at my local retail pop-up shop in Skaneateles NY. I'm doing a bit of art licensing (mostly with Oopsy Daisy Fine Art for Kids) I'm still working on renovating out 1896 home.I'm crazy busy with 2 teenagers in the house.you can find me daily on instagram and pinterest, and a bit on Facebook, here and here.so long for now.[...]



swoon w drooz: week 36: the barN

my HOME: living with color.

2013-07-26T12:08:22.382-04:00

last summer around this time we had a photo shoot at our house (we have since moved.. so this is no longer our house - kinda strange seeing these images featured now!) The magazine that featured it recently hit the newsstands - and it is full of really great spaces, color, and amazing decor & storage ideas. if you are an Elle Decor or Domino i highly reccommend this issue-  it is chock full of great, REAL homes with loads of  affordable + doable decorating inspirations.  here are a few images from the feature as you can see ( in my artwork and home)... I love color.  there's no hiding it! a big thank you to Harris Publications, Small Room Decorating and the fabulous Gridley + Graves photographers! (we are in the process of renovating and decorating our new home & studio - and 1896 farmhouse - so hopefully there will be another feature soon! :)here is the cover so you can look for it on your newsstands!(i have seen it at Wegmans, Barnes & Noble, TOPS) it is so full of great ideas, color, style and storage solutions - we can all use that - not just for "Small Rooms!"[...]



swoon w drooz: week 31: BERRY summer

2013-07-23T20:16:41.714-04:00

its mid summer.. & we are drowning in raspberries, strawberries and blueberries - and i'm LOVIN' it!
this week swoon w drooz is inspired by the luscious colors of all those summer berries... and drooz art FLORAL TART in "wow pink". shining red boots to help you navigate all those prickly raspberry bushes, a ceramic berry basket, a POPS! recipe book with great ideas on how to create frozen berry treats, and adorable birdy decor  (don't worry... this one wont eat your berries),  ruffled curtains that look like raspberry sherbet, and a plump raspberry leather pouf to rest upon after all that berry picking effort.

2013-07-15T12:23:44.847-04:00

this art is from a few years ago - it was a commissioned piece that i have always adored... 
i was thinking about it recently as we have been watching a mother and baby deer eat apples from our backyard apple tree.  the art inspired a nursery mix of old charm and modern glitz... sure to bring sweet dreams to any precious baby.

swoon w drooz: week 29: how does your garden grow?

2013-07-10T16:34:53.184-04:00

the hollyhock flowers are all a bloom in my garden. i have always thought of them as "fairy flowers" - the enchanting stalks could be such a lovely inspiration for a little girls room - dancing fairies, chirping birds, the smell of apple blossoms and a delicate rose necklace.... happy twirling!

2013-06-26T11:52:04.886-04:00


this weeks "swoon w drooz" is inspired by my art work "welcome to our nest". summer is already zipping by around here.. but for the past week or so we have been slowing down to peek out the window and enjoy a giant nest of Robin babies on our front porch - the mom & dad Robins are so protective and angry when walk close  - so , we have been staying away and enjoying our patio instead (here are a few pretty outdoor goodies I'd love to add to assist in my "outdoor relaxation and nature watching!" so... come to find out.. The Robins are actually NOT keen on the idea "welcome to our nest" - we can respect that :)

2013-05-13T12:51:27.751-04:00

I love New York City. You could take me away there anytime..(i'm going this weekend... Brooklyn Flea, old friends, and art museums - can't wait!) this swoon with drooz board was inspired by my Take Me Away: New York artwork for Green Box Art. The rug reminds me of the NYC crosswalks, the chair (appropriately named the "Madison" sings of Central Park, the bookcase: a tall skyscraper (and also sold by my favorite NYC store ABC Home). Tote your belongings in style in the iconic black and white stripe designed Henri Bendel rolling case (flagship store at 5th ave) ... now just fill the closet with some high fashion and good walking shoes - and you are ready to roll.Take me Away: New York: drooz studio/Green Box Arttoy riding taxiNYC WORD wall art rug: crate & barrelred apple fabricbookcase: ABC home reeves design aqueduct bookcaseNYC w Kids book wheelie suitcase bag: Henri BendelMadsion swivel chair by Lazy Boy in leafI love NY pillow: upcycled Tshirt - etsyNYC snowglobe[...]

scrub a DUB DUB! this design board is inspired by the kids bathroom on my house..
(see small picture in lower right hand corner... its a very large bathroom with a standing shower, marble sink, claw foot tub, cherry wood wainscoting, vintage tile floor - it looks pretty much like it did when we moved it - minus lots and lots of wallpaper!) My son and daughter share this bathroom... so i opted with gender neutral, "hip" original art and some cool quote framed prints. black and white decor w a pop of green and watery blue accessories. ( most of the time it is also heavily accented with dirty towels,  clothes all over  the floor, a empty toilet paper roll and an overflowing trash can)

 This is my sons room. Clark is almost 14 years old.  He is a collector, an inventor, a scientist, antique and flea market fanatic, and world explorer. His room is fitted with treasures new and old...we were going for a modern Charles Darwin feel... focus and a main goal of clutter control! (Clark is also a bit of a hoarder - I have no idea were it gets that from!) The red cabinets are from Target - a perfect way to display collections & nicknacks - condense clutter and minimize "dusting" time! (there is one on each side of the bed) .... under the double bed are large plastic under bed boxes for legos, books, and projects in progress.) The room also has a desk for homework (or taking mechanical things apart), a giant English wardrobe armoire (there is no built in closet in this old room!), and a 40 gallon turtle tank. oh boy!art: Gone Fishin' - drooz studio/oopsydaisy(show in hand painted RED - OD offers, brown, green, turquoise)nightstand" red "curio"cabinets: windam accent cabinet- targetturtle shell: Nate Berkus: Targetround red mirror: Hobby Lobbyturquoise bed side trays: Hobby Lobbywall paint: Sherwin Williams Ethereal Moodbranch lamps: HomegoodsSTUFF wire basket: LaylaGraycebook: The Origin of the Species: amazonbed (vintage) i actually bought this is High School at a garage sale , for my college room! i have painted it 3 times/different colors - it has a great shape and lovely details.ceiling light fixture, explosive wooden box, misc wall art : vintage, antique and customers own. throw pillows...old ones from Marshalls, Kohls and etsy.

Friday Favorites. (on Tuesday)

2013-03-12T14:57:16.095-04:00

jenn over at {cottage nest}  shared her Friday Favorites last week and invited readers to do the same. i'm game.. here's what is makin me smile these days..blog: Mrs. Lilien Styin House. bold color, bling, design, & cocktails, all presented as pure eye candy. dreamy and darling. makes me feel very hip. (if i lived closer to Mrs. Lilien - i'd somehow wrangle myself an invite to one of her happy hours.)lipstick: i'm a sucker for a red lipstick - i have tried all the stains (all a bit dry and flakey) but this one is different {Just-Bitten-Kissable-Balm-Stain}  Revlon rocks. great color, moisture and shine. (todays color: Romantic) shoes: sometimes function trumps form. sometimes you actually obtain both! on our recent trip to Morocco and Madrid we traveled with only one carry on bag each. ( that meant very, very little room for shoes!)  i needed shoes that allowed me to do walking, light hiking, worked at the beach, the desert,  the snowy cold Atlas mountains, & could play all day and then take me out at nite in a dress. here they are. The Creston by Naturalizer.   a slight heel, rugged traction, arch and support all hidden in an elastic backed ballet slipper. also available in 5 widths!        "go to" jar sauce:  crazy weeknight schedules usually mean pasta, sauce and local bakery bread for dinner at least once a week here at home! i'm loving this sauce! Victoria Tomato Basil ( i can get it at Walmart and Target)  tastes very homemade -kinda similar to one of my favorite local Italian restaurantsso there ya go. and like Jenn says .. "I'd love to hear about some of yours and if you feel like blogging about them, come back by and leave a link in the comments. I love discovering new things."  so - go gather your Favs and link back in the comments to BOTH of us![...]
