Hope Harris Photography


I’m heading out for the weekend, so I’ll leave you with the touching photography of Hope Harris, referred to me by Maryam (Thanks, M!). From cats to gorgeous pink blooms, there’s a certain sensitivity behind the lens that comes through in each image. I can tell that Hope sees beyond the surface, which is why her photographs stir such emotion. Hope captivates the honesty and down-to-earth beauty that I find so attractive in the natural world around me. A flower doesn’t consider what it will wear. A bird doesn’t gaze into a mirror to check that it’s feathers are in order. This is the raw beauty that draws so many of us in because outside of nature, only children seem to have this endearing quality for a limited time. We all grow up, primp, gaze, and worry about wrinkles and butt size. We buy expensive shoes and hope someone notices them. Nature never worries, and to me, that is why a fallen petal or the fluttering wings of a hummingbird delights. It’s genuine. It’s real. Unedited. Unplanned. Now that is a thing of beauty.

I fell in love with this kitty image, a Scottish Fold, my favorite breed. Here are a few additional beauties from the talented Ms. Harris. All photographs can be purchased on her website.

Have a nice weekend everyone!

Rock Posters at Newbury Comics (+ Guide)

I know I’ve been talking about rock posters since May, but I love these gorgeously illustrated, limited edition works of art because they are affordable and do so much to add color and interest to a room. I could seriously collect if I had enough wall space, but I think a few in the home is plenty for me right now.

One of my favorite music stores is Boston’s own Newbury Comics, a great source for music, comics, Japanese toys, DVD’s, and now – rock posters, which they carry both in-store and online.In addition to what’s available at Newbury Comics, you can visit some of these talented peeps that create rock posters by the pound. I’m sure you’ll love browsing these links, so enjoy!

Sofia Barao (Paris)

Sofia Barao is a mixed media artist and accessories designer living near Paris. She has an etsy store where she recently started offering vintage French fashion and ad prints along with wallpaper scrap packs (great for mini projects… You could design your own closet door in the spirit of Ms. Posie!). These prints need to be framed and displayed, don’t you think? So pretty!
