Today I Love: Berry Tones

In my town the wild blackberries are in their full glory, and I’ve become obsessed with the rich beauty of their blossoms, fruit, and juices.  I’m even thinking of crushing some and dying some tea towels in their gorgeous tones.  If I do I’ll let you know how that goes.

Here are a few of my current favorites inspired by berrylicious colors:

A little while back I had the privilege of getting to talk about blogging with Christienne de Tournay Birkhahn, who writes for Stationery Trends Magazine.  And just yesterday I received word (from Kati of The Finer Things) that the article including that interview, as well as interviews with some of my favorite fellow bloggers has been published!  I feel so lucky to be included with such lovely bloggers as: Katey of One Good Bumblebee and Kati of The Finer Things …and feel honored to have the opportunity to share my passion for blogging with even more people!

Thank you Stationery Trends and Christienne for writing such a wonderful article!

A big thanks to Kati for the heads up and images… and another big thank you to Holly for spreading the work in such a kind and generous way (just as she always does)! xox Ez

Inspired Artist: Kris Knight

Yesterday during my daily inspiration absorption on Flickr I came across the art of Kris KnightOh . My . Word !  I’m completely smitten with everything about his work.  The way he conveys so much emotion in the eyes of his subjects is incredible, and his use of light and color are perfection!
