I was re-watching a favorite the other day: Harold and Maude. I think that Harold's mother has the best hat ever - look at the Greek key detailing!

I was at my local framer the other day (where I seem to be spending a lot of time recently.) The framer asked me about my approach to narrowing and selecting from all the options. I thought about it for a bit and have come up with the following: I search for a frame that complements but does not overpower the art. In my opinion, you want the art to be the focal point - to have the frame help draw the eye inwards to focus and highlight the piece. As a rule, I tend towards simple frame options. How do you pick a frame for your pieces without getting overwhelmed with the options?

I have a thing for grosgrain ribbon. Black grosgrain ribbon to be exact. I tend to tie up all of my gifts with it. It has become a sort of signature of mine. I have a whole drawer full of all kinds of widths. Always available on a moment's notice to add a special little detail to a gift. Do you have any tips for adding the special touch to your gifts?

Fresh flowers, yeah yeah, I mentioned a few weeks back that just picking up a bunch at your local grocery store can really brighten up a space. With tulips especially, I love watching them go through all of the phases. This bunch was almost on the way out to the compost bin, but I just loved the petals dropping. I didn't touch or move a thing for this photo. The composition was just beautiful- watching the flowers decay over time.

Who knew you could have Bistro chairs in so many colors?
At recent trip to Flora Grubb, I was amazed at all of the color options.
You could really spice up your exterior seating with these great colors- or even your interior with adding some color to your breakfast room chairs. What do you think? Have any favorite colors?
