This home and lifestyle magazine is just stunning!!.. Created by Loni Parker, it is based in Australia, but thanks to the new world of online publications, it can be enjoyed worldwide at an instant.. love that! Adore Magazine
There is something about a fabulous magazine that can truly give me the giddy chills! and Adore magazine has nailed it for me..
The new April/May issue just out is a buffet of gorgeousness.. look at all that yum just in the cover!!

Loni, I love how you manage to capture an array of styles but yet appeal to everyone!.. and what a perfect mix of little boutiques, etsy sellers, bloggers and well known designers. You showcase the lovely in everything.

New prints..

I can't stop thinking about the warm beach season that's not that far away.. I designed, framed and photographed a couple of new prints today in the soft tones I am loving so much right now. They will be in my shop soon. xx, Elena

A cool blue IKEA trip

I went to IKEA this weekend. The whites and cool blues that came home with me are begging for warm Spring days.

mood board homework

I'm taking an interior design class on Wednesday nights. It's really fun to be in the classroom again! Tonight we are presenting mood boards based on another students mood board form last week. The girl I got had an inspiration board for a bedroom with white as the main color with splashes of color in furniture and accessories.. right up my alley. I put together this board using some shabby chic white photos and presenting pool blue, grass green and hot pink as the three main splashes of color. There are some yummy peonies, a pool blue alarm clock, some bright nesting tables and a print of my pink crosshatch heart design.
It was fun to cut and paste for real since I've been doing mood boards digitally for a while.

Spring is in the air (well sort of, it's supposed to snow again tomorrow!.. although it was 75 on Friday) and fresh change is on the horizon..
It has been a looong winter, and we are coming out of hibernation with lot's of new and exciting adventures ahead!
My biggest announcement is... We are having baby #3 in October!!
I'm also working on a textile design project with a friend,
I gave my stationery business, Wee card company, a fresh new look at Leeny designs
and of course lot's of home decorating plans, dreams and projects underway small and large.
I'm happy to be writing again and look forward to sharing it all.
