Saturday Loves 11

Hello Friends,

Can you believe it’s the first weekend of November?  My, it seems as though the days are supersonically flashing by…how is it November already?  

What wonderful things have you planned for this weekend?   As for me, hubby and I, have been caught off guard by unexpected car repairs that totaled $1,900.00.  So, it’s going to be a quiet weekend…filled with pilates, reading, chores, and home cooked meals.

 A few delightful links that have inspired me this past week:

Clever and smart!  An easy DIY project that creatively turns a simple bowl from IKEA into a chic pendant lamp.  Photography by Sarah Sherman Samuel for A Beautiful Mess.

Photography by Anna Williams

Many years ago, I discovered Anna Williams photography, and I’ve been smitten ever since. Williams ongoing series, The Voracity, continues to explore beauty, consumption, and hunger in an imaginative, original, and ground breaking manner.

This is an awesome list!  And, I’m happy to say that I incorporate and live by all the items listed on a daily and weekly basis …except for 76.  

Number 76 is the one item from the list that I must improve on.  I tend to wait until everything is perfect, all of my ducks lined up neatly in a straight line, then I proceed—slowly and overly cautious because I want 100% success.  Even though, I know, that sometimes it’s best to simply start where you are, with what you have, and build, grow and strengthen from there.

Two fashionable new books that I can’t wait to get my hands on…Chloe: Attitudes by Sarah Mower and Style Instinct by Lori Goldstein.

And finally, this herringbone top coat in Irish wool is on my wish list; and photographer Nicole Franzen’s escapade to Paris part 1 and part 2.

Wishing you the loveliest of weekends!
