favorites, inspirations

you're my favorite

i have been having some particularly gray personal days and dark feelings lately, but when i see color like this, all in one place, from the likes of you...the color/pattern/utter loveliness helps to cheer me, even if just a little.

other things i quite like at the moment/what's inspiring me now:

-summer fruit, like apricots and watermelon. i am not much for hot weather (and we don't have any in SF!) but i love the botanical bounty that warm weather brings to the table. -the cute animal site of the moment, i can has cheeseburger. those lolcats make me do just that. and i need a laugh right now! -the sweet, girlish art of san francisco artist, annie, aka wexford girl -nyc snapshot: a blog bursting with photos and drawings depicting NYC in the past. i still miss NYC dearly. -the fact that my talented pal linda now has a blog outside of livejournal...lindamade. best of luck linda with your impending move! you are an inspiration. -these books focusing on modern quilting intrigue me: make your own contemporary quilts, the modern quilt workshop, and glorious patchwork and passionate patchwork (the latter two by the consummate colorist and artist kaffe fassett, who hails from britain). too bad i don't have a gift certificate to spend...i'd buy them all in one fell swoop. -if i could afford it, i'd love to have a digital SLR, either this one by canon, or this one by nikon. i'd love to go further with my photography. alas...
