Friday Favorites


Today I picked soothing, dreamy pieces for my Friday Favorites!

Two: Art Nouveau, by amyhatch
Three: Jane's Obsession, by Accessoire
Four: Jasmine Water's, couragemylove

So, interesting news here: we are under water.  One of the lakes in the Wisconsin Dells has emptied after its dam burst (so much rain), we have large sections of major highway washed out completely, we went through at least three tornado sirens yesterday, and are being told by the authorities to stay off the back roads because they can't monitor the conditions of them all.  It's truly incredible!  If you weren't aware, one of the Wisconsin Dells icons are the Ducks.  They are water craft vehicles collected from the army after WW2.  They use them to shuttle tourists around on the lakes up there.  Well, yesterday they were called out to go help rescue stranded people in the rain!  Again, just incredible!

Anyways, the weather is predicting a cozy weekend for us, filled with tea, new books, a few movies, and a lot of staying as dry as possible INDOORS!

Loving #3!

I hope the rain stops for you guys. It's all being sent down here. They are calling for major flooding in the coming weeks... Enjoy the tea and staying dry indoors :)

sounds like a lovely weekend to me! thanks so much for featuring my artwork!!

your blog is so light and airy. i think if it had a smell it would be the smell of bright white laundry hanging on a clothesline on a summer day.
