INSPIRATION :: Famous Paintings as Sidewalk Chalk Art
I hardly ever post mobile photographs here — I think low-res images are better suited to Instagram than blogs — but I couldn’t resist sharing this chalk art!
My mind can hardly wrap around such talent. It’s the transitory nature of this medium that is the most profound to me, I think. The image will only last a short time. The artists know this work is temporary, and yet create greatness anyway.
INSPIRATION :: Have I?
Spotted in Roxy Marj’s delightful Etsy shop. She says, “[This print] hangs in our office, and reminds me everyday to forget about myself and think of others…”

TRAVEL :: Aveline is a Parisian Shop
What a delightful discovery! Aveline is an art gallery on the Champs-Élysées in Paris, specializing in objets d’art from the reigns of various Louis.*
Thanks to Follow Lauren — who’s currently happily roaming somewhere between Barcelona and London — for the sighting. (Photo via 1-cities.)
*If the lack of proper pluralization here bothers you, 1. you are likely an astute pendant, and 2. you may wish to peruse this.

These illustrations by Lizzy Stewart are capturing my imagination tonight! And you’ll forgive me for including some very out-of-season winter scenes too, right?
