There is nothing like homespun linen. It is one of life's pleasures. The idea that someone sits at a loom and made this from a fiber that came from a plant is remarkable. I love the color and the texture. The cost has gotten out of sight for me. I still have a good backlog of material in which to make my bags and to use for my projects. A couple of years ago I even sold some of my pieces. Some of what is left are the large tablecloths that are too good to go "under the knife" or in this case scissors.
These are the most beautiful layouts from Brant Mackley Gallery catalog. The color combination of the orange, olive and purple are extremely dynamic. Then there is the subject matter. The idea that someone beaded the entire bag is beyond my concept. We have seen a beaded doctor's bag up close and personal and it was amazing. Having one of these for a purses would be fun, but expensive. A good reproduction would work, but that would break the budget also.
The dogs would like this. I can just imagine them walking over the bed to get to the other side and deciding to take a nap instead. Tootie, our rat terrier, would like the close proximity to the floor as she is now not able to get on the bed now unaided. The dark color of the bedding would not work for us as it would show all the white dog hair.
The pages from an old scrapbook make for an interesting visual.
Nice color combinations and textures; metal of the bed, lantern, and pine cones. This is not as much a formal set up as the others I guess as the bed is movable, but it is the one that is of the most interest to me.
This house in the Hamptons was designed by Benjamin Noriega-Ortiz in the 80's. Who cares about the house when the outside looks like this?
Hopefully this is not just a sculpture, but an actual fire pit. Can't you just imagine the rebars glowing at night and maybe sending up sparks into the sky? Even if it just the enclosed area with the animals it is fun.
The contrast of the lawn and the surrounding trees and bushes is wonderful. The colors and the textures of the foliage is amazing. I am sorry that none of the writings on the house mention the landscaping in depth. That is the best part to me.
What fun it would be to be sitting at this desk looking through all these books and magazines. There is a big stack of magazines on the floor to the left. I wonder what pages are bookmarked with tags in the center book?
