Here are some images that made me smile and just feel good today. I’m sure you’ll start to notice a theme as you look at them. I hope these inspire you to freshen up your home in some small way this weekend, even if it’s just a quick rearrange of your pillows or art, or perhaps cleaning out a closet or scaring away those dust bunnies beneath the bed. If things are too hectic, at least grab a bouquet of flowers and divide it up, adding a few flowers in small vases to dot around your home (on the bedside table, near the sink in your bathroom, next to your kitchen sink, on your entry way table, etc.). Remember, if you neglect your home, you are neglecting yourself – so take pride in your space and you’ll feel more invigorated and ready to take on a new week. Feel free to click on any of these images below to enlarge your view. Oh, and make it a nice weekend!
Adolie Day, a well established French freelance illustrator and painter, wrote to me today to share her work. Mostly images of children, she does a lot of work in textiles for children’s fashion for lines like Kenzo, for instance. I love the color palette she uses and the softness in the eyes of the children she paints. Her work has a lot of warmth to it, it’s very peaceful, and I like that. Her blog is a lot of fun to browse, she has a few shots of her atelier there (a very simple section carved out by a window in her kitchen with a water view) and more art for you to see. Enjoy.

These tea towels from Third Drawer Down in Australia caught my eye today, available at Figments. Since they are over-sized, they’re great to frame, transform into a pillow (find a fun fabric for the back), cover a memo board, or create a simple sink or window curtain. You can even create a chair pad. Remember, it’s fabric – if you like the pattern, think about where you’d like to use it in your home and create something special.
