Quote of the Day

“The proper words in the proper places are the true definition of style.”

-Jonathan Swift


Wall Art

I have always loved words (probably why one of my majors was English!). I especially love words, when they show up where they aren’t expected. For example, in artwork. Here are three pieces of art I found in the store the other day, which I absolutely loved – gives the art a whole different meaning.

The meaning of life is quite simply, whatever you want it to be.

Love is like oxygen. You can’t live without it.

To laugh often and much. To win the respect of intelligent people and the affection of children. To earn the appreciation of honest critics and endure betrayal of false friends. To appreciate beauty. To find the best in others. To leave the world a bit better whether by a healthy child or a garden patch. To know even one life has breathed easier because you have lived. This is to be a success. – Ralph Waldo Emerson


Red Pineapple

We are so often caught up in our very own hectic lives as well as others, and at times it is difficult to let go and breathe simply and realize what is in fact important. Ironically, this thought came to me while browsing a boutique called Red Pineapple, in St. Augustine, Florida. If you are ever there, do pay a visit to this adorable store. What I so loved about this boutique, was not only the great selection of unique products, but the way the boutique incorporated words, quotes, and phrases – it really gave the store an interesting feel. Below are some photos from Red Pineapple.

Shown in this photo, is an old typewriter (I was so excited to see this!) and a decoration in the form of a wooden block, with the line “How do I love thee! Let me count the ways.” This is one of my absolute favorite poems, written by Elizabeth Barrett Browning, entitled Sonnet 43.
