I love them all but as you know for this series I like the less vibrantly colored ones best of all. My favorites by far are the large gold and black with swirling ginkgo leaves or the horizontal with the same color scheme. The textures and movement are so beautiful and they look like mystical rivers or swirling air to me. When I look at the black ones in the series I think of outer space, the subconscious, magic, and the spirit world.

Thank you Em- I will be in touch about the details of your custom painting! and I'll be sure to post the results on the blog as it is completed!
as for my several other current projects (there's a lot in process right now)- NONE are really close to completion- but here's a sneak peek!!!
New dining room window treatments- inspired by a spread in the latest issue of House Beautiful.  They should be completed by the end of the week and I will be sharing a tutorial for these super simple, beachy and casual modern window treatments- I am seriously LOVING them!!!

Here is a shirt of a special little dancer friend of mine who has out grown it-  I am in the process of transforming it into a pillow for her bed- stay tuned for that tutorial sometime soon as well:)

My garage has recently turned into an unwanted furniture graveyard.  The piece above I rescued from the roadside in a rain storm.  I can see the potential- my Hub on the other hand CANNOT.  I am in the slow, but sure transformation process and I CANNOT wait to bring this beauty back to life!!!  This is my first experience using a furniture stripper (in prep for another BIG furniture reno project I have in store)...this one might take a little while:)

And then there's these here chairs...I loved the lines (also a roadside rescue), and I am excited to redo the broken caning on the backs, reupholster the seats (possibly in some new fabric that I just ordered a sample of...will be sharing the exciting new source later in the week), and painting the chairs themselves.  They will be going in the dining room, along with my possibly/hopefully refinished table, and 4 new, more modern chairs...more on the dining room reno to come- it's gonna be a summer-long endeavour:)

I hope you all had a wonderful weekend!  Ours was nice- but busy!  And I can say with all certainty that we are SO glad to have Daddy back home after a super-long business trip!!!!
Happy Fathers Day to all the daddy's out there!
