If you’ve followed my Instagram or previous posts on this blog, you’ll know that I have an obsessions for florals. And now with spring in full swing, I truly can’t fill my home with enough flowers. I ALWAYS need more! With flowers on the brain, I’ve rounded up some fun new vases to show some florals off.

As Midwest born and bred, I never really had the exposure to the brilliant and fantastic southwestern patterns that you see so much out west. But now that I’m consumed by the prints, I’ve fallen hard for the style. Here are some favorites for my Mr. Harvey to appreciate.

I’ve been having an art renaissance of my own in recent months. I’ve never been one to appreciate the intricacy of watercolor paintings, lately I’ve been scouring the web to seek out some ethereal paintings to adorn my own walls.
In my search, I came across Elena Romanova’s work and was instantly captured. Not only does she paint amazing landscapes, but her dog portraits are pretty fantastic as well (and she commissions custom portraits too!)
Has your art style transformed over the years?
My brain has been a little cluttered lately. It seems as though I can’t focus on a single thing and have a mass of ideas, concerns and thoughts pop into my head all at once. It’s like seven people trying to enter an elevator at the same time…everyone struggles, no one gets in and the elevator leaves without them.
In order to deal with my over-stuffed brain, I’ve turned to list making. Lists for home life. Lists for work life. I’ve even made lists for having fun…that’s right, I need to list my fun!
While the lists help to clean the thoughts from my mind, I’ve found that scheduling blocks of work time has also been crucial to getting through those lists. I focus on a single section of my list during those set hours and happily check off each item. The visual confirmation of getting through my daily tasks is truly gratifying.
What’s your method for cleaning out your idea-filled head? Let me know and I’ll make a list for future reference…ha….I love a good list!
And I can’t wait to share some of these many ideas with you all because a couple of them have to do with this very blog….so stay tuned.
I hope it is a thought full weeekend for everyone!

Southern California has shown us some incredible weather this winter. And I think Mr. Harvey has been the most grateful for the warmer temps because if there is one thing that makes him happier than a pigeon in a bread factory, it’s being able to run free in a grassy yard on a sunny day.
And that’s just what he did.
