Did anyone say turquoise?

I came across an image of this chair and was instantly intreagued... my first thought was 'beutiful!' but then I saw this feather thing it has going on...

What do you think? I'm not sure...

I was playing around with the picnik feature on Flickr. You can see the original here.

PS Can't seem to be able to get rid of the black frame around the picture... any tips?

Turquoise (teal and aqua) delights

Turquoise is everywhere for 2010, here are a few faves from my daily bloground.

From Carrie Can - loving the combination with purple!

From Chez Larsson - the perfect thrift find

From desire to inspire - more dream thrifting

Aqua apples on etsy - sadly I can't remember what shop

Turquoise woodwork on Remodelista

Loving the teal wall from you are my fave... my black living room wall feels so 2007 now!

Loving the hues of simply hue's Flickr stream

Treasure hunt

I went thrifting yesterday, oh how I love those treasure hunts. Especially when I find treasures like this Groma Kolibri '50's East German portable typewriter!

Oh, and it's for sale here!

Sharing the love

I'm so thrilled to have found two new blogs that I absolutely love. First up is James of Bleubird Vintage. She's so fabulous, I have a total girl crush on her. She's the mother of two cool kiddos and manages to be cool, amazingly stylish and totally creative. I feel very inspired.

This makes me want to build a teepee in our living room too and play pretty Indians.

Next is the Cherry Blossom Girl. A stylish Parisienne who makes me want to wear dresses and heels and black seamed tights every day.

And look at that pretty printed screen behind her! And the mirror! And the floorboards!!!

And finally, I want these for summer!

I'd pair them with a chunky knit for spring, a delicate knit for summer, my dad's faded brown leather jacket and killer heals. On the days that I'm not chasing after my kids...

I am speechless. Watch it!

How cute is this ad from JCrew? And how crazy cool is the little girl's hair?! As the mother of two mixed race boys I can't imagine how much work it would be to care for it, but WOW, that's cool!
