Tuesday Typeface..Pink Moon...

Lunar Alphabet via Leandro Katz

Today marks not only a series of lunar eclipses 
BUT
a gorgeous Pink Moon to boot.
I can't help but be reminded of one of our favorite tunes that happened to play non stop in our newly purchased Grande Dame some 14 years ago..
Volkswagen did this Nick Drake beauty justice in 1999.
It will forever make me feel 16 again...

Happy Weekend Everyone!!!

We Wessons are bringing out the candles, the balloons and a lovely little cake for a certain Grande Dame who turns 14 today...
She definitely doesn't look a day over 229...
And..
even though the old farmers down the street have nicknamed her the "house that can't hold paint"..
We love her all the more..
and
believe that she's the epitome of a classic beauty.
BUT
it's time my friends..
She's in need of a makeover...
What every teenage girl dreams of...
So my go-to design guru
(and sister from another mister)
Miss Heidi Heublein has been helping me do just that...

Having sent out Michaela & Mike's wedding invitation suite this week..
I am taking a much needed..
much anticipated..
long long vaca....
What pray tell shall I do with all this time...
I'll be..
Taking the Monster to THE City..
(the only city that forever holds my heart)
Catching up on some reading...
(both book and blog)
Getting some exercise with Mr. G...
Planning the Garden..
Writing up some delicious posts for this little ole blog..
Getting into the studio and START creating (for me)
and of course..
drag Miss Heublein into our Grande Dame
to
help make her
even
GRANDER!!
 

Be Safe, Get Outside and Have a Great Weekend!!

Take Flight....


Ohhh..Those creatives over at Anthropologie make my heart sing..
I have a sweet sweet spot for the Monarch... 
You see..
Every year on our little island..
those lovely winged beauties..
lay their tiny white eggs in our fields..
yellow and black striped caterpillars emerge..
mint green chrysalises are formed..
and
then..
delicate flashes of orange, gold and black..
flit, fly and dance through our golden stalks of hay..
Then as quickly as they arrive..
with tiny suitcases in hand..
they head to Mexico...
