RabLabs.... what I felt at first sight when I came across these luscious, purely elegant tabletop and home accessory pieces. Anna Rabinowicz is the designer behind RabLabs. Her collection offers bottle stoppers, platters, stationary and jewelry. Her pieces are made of a luxurious palette of materials, layering semi-precious gems including agate and crystal with the finishing touches of pure gold and sterling silver.

Definitely dress your table to impress or impress as a guest and give the perfect hostess gift!

Luxury living and working in a Cement Factory...?

Take a look at this beauty... Designed by Spanish architect, Ricardo Bofill.
Ricardo discovered this landmark Gem in 1973. The factory was part of an industrial complex from the turn of the century, comprising over 30 silos, underground galleries and huge engine rooms. The factory was abandoned and partially in ruins. The complex stands in the midst of gardens of eucalyptus, palms, olive trees and cypresses and features Ricardo Bofill’s house and guest rooms. I think this is luxury living... reinvented.

A Schematic Life...

I was up late Saturday night, catching up with my favorite blogs and falling in love with new ones, when I came across these beautiful hand renderings...

Love, love, love....

Ahhhh... The long lost art of hand rendering without computer aid. It truly is an art form.

Anyway, back to A Schematic life blogspot... Michelle Morelan is the talented Illustrator/Interior designer based in Canada.

She also has an Etsy store where she sells her art work and her hand rendered cards.

I honestly haven't done hand renderings since I was in school and I absolutely loved it! Too bad no one really has a budget for them in real life.. but it's so nice to see that someone as talented as Michelle is passionate about her craft and lives it everyday. Such an inspiration Michelle.

I had to share..

A new car and and a new bag...Sooooo happy!

Ok, this isn't me and these aren't mine, but I sure did buy a new "bright white" car two days ago..and then I bought a "warm white" coach bag yesterday... and this is exactly how i felt... !
Two things I've wanted for a very long time and needed...just kept putting off. Hey, if your gonna do it, do it right....right? At least that's what I've been trying to convince myself of the last two days.
It's good.. . No, it's perfect! I have to learn to enjoy the moment.
Happy days...

A New Year...

It's been a little while since my last post. So much has happened and life is evolving as it should.
I started a new job in August, which is why I haven't posted. Finally adjusting and feeling like I've got the hang of things. I love my job and I'm so grateful to be able to design, to create and make even a small difference in so many peoples lives.
I'm looking for a new place... very exciting!
My children are wonderful, happy little people and although they've had to endure many changes over the last year, they are resilient, loving, hysterical and so smart... They make my life full and all I have to do is look at their faces and my life feels perfect.
My future is looking brighter... New beginnings, new perspective, new dreams, new desires and WHOLE NEW YEAR ahead!
So, I am going to do my best to do what I love most. Create, create, create...
Hopefully I can add a little inspiration to your daily reads...
Stay tuned. 2011... Here I come!
