In case you didn't know it, red just happens to be my favorite color. And now with the heat of the soon-to-be summertime, I am finding myself loving it more than ever.
Check out: the new line from Rabia Lockwood of Ginny & Jude Designs. Stunning and perfectly classic pieces; plus, that model is a knockout.
"Their distinctly unique fashion accessories are constructed from a carefully selected combination of new and vintage materials. Each handcrafted piece is imbued with a rich world history; millinery trim from early 1900s Europe, vintage glass and Bakelite buttons, French mohair, knitted ties from 1960s England and monocles originally used in 1800s America – to name a few.

I feel like I have been slacking in doing any projects for a long while now. Come fall, when both kids will actually be in school (!!), I think it's going to be time to really start working on my home using some creativity. I adore seeing how well others put things together and add their own clever & artistic touches in their spaces. It's time to put my hands to work again...
