Beautiful Art

I want to paint like this!! How beautiful is this work. I have realized I have a secret love for birds in art. I love their form and their grace, their feathers, eyes, beaks and claws. They are an artists delight because their little form holds such contrast! I also like the rawness of the portraits, the blurs, darkness and dripping paint give each of them such a mood. And love the idea of doing collage with oils, like the cars below. I have never tried this, but love these pieces. Feeling inspired...I know I am :) G x x x

Left Brain, Right Brain

This is such a brilliant ad by Mercedes. I love everything about it! And it is so beautiful, genius! G

Thought For The Day.

Feed the right wolf...


It seriously scares me how accurate starsigns always seem to be. It freaks me out because I really don't quiet understand it. Whenever I read these things it actually feels like the person who wrote it knows me, my secrets and my inner most beliefs and weaknesses. And frankly that is a bit disturbing....yet kind of awesome at the same time!!! I love the fact that I am a Scorpio, I think Scorpios stand for so many worthy qualities; loyalty, passion, hugely emotional, magnetic, courageous and resourceful so never mind the fact that I am secretive, unforgiving and stubborn...it simply adds to my charm. Hee hee, for all Scorpios...read below :) G

"Scorpios stubbornly cling to emotional attachments. They rarely forgive or forget emotional rejection. They have to learn that jealousy and possessiveness are self defeating. Rechanneling negative feelings and experiences into constructive activity benefits others, as well as themselves. No other sign has the emotional strength as a Scorpio.

Many astrologers call this the sign of the "oldest souls". Old and wise beyond the average, Scorpios often know all the answers, except sometimes; they too often have difficulty finding what they need to develop their own happiness. The characteristic profile of a Scorpio also tells us that he is honest, to the point of hurting someone. If you have asked for his opinion, you will get the brutal truth, without any sugar coating. And this is the reason why dishonesty is unforgivable to a Scorpio. You are keen of perception, fond of travel and great lovers of the outdoors. Despite your powerful attributes, you have inherent weaknesses. Selfishness and jealousy are not your normal characteristics, but you can easily acquire these bad traits. They often wear a mask. Too often they say "no" when they really mean "yes".

In their personal relationships: Once they find true love they can be the most faithful dedicated of all partners but fall out badly with a Scorpio and you are likely to find they will never forget or forgive. You are a great lover and a romantic one. You could sweep the other person off his/her feet. Scorpios feelings are so intense that even when their love is of the highest and most idealistic kind, they are nevertheless frequently protagonists in tragic, even violent romances, "star-crossed lovers". You are a domestic creature. You do wish to marry and have a home. To establish and ensure it, you could willingly sacrifice much.

Business & Career: surgeon, research scientist, soldier. Any profession in which analysis, investigation, dealing with practicalities, and the solving of mysteries are relevant, orators, diplomats, preachers, police and detective work, espionage and counterespionage, the law, physics or psychology may attract them, musicians, You will succeed in almost any line of business."

Here are a few random images I found while exploring a few new sites and blogs. These are the things I simply love today...hope you are enjoying your Tuesday. G

I am knitting!!

I feel very domesticated lately. Doing all my own washing, ironing, cooking, cleaning. Let me tell you...It. Is. Intense! I can not iron to save my life. I have even started planning my outfits each morning, on which are the most crease free garments....or even better, un-ironable. Hee hee, everyone has their weaknesses. And besides for someone who could and does burn herself at every opportunity on any random hot object, an iron just seems incredibly dangerous. Anyway...I digress. So being so Martha Stewart lately, I decided the other day, to start knitting. Yay. Obviously only little things, as I am not hugely talented, but it is actually so much fun. I can even knit while watching tv...like a little only granny, mad skills, hey!? See what I plan on making below! Aren't the too cute, don't they make you want to start knitting?! Yay for me :) G

Pretty Poetry

Thought For The Day.

Just Little Things

I love this blog. It is such a cute, clever idea. It just reminds us of all the little things that we should appreciate and be thankful for. These are all the seemingly insignificant things that happen everyday and that make your heart smile. Some of them are actually pretty funny. G x
