Garden Goddesses

Whimsical, yet powerful focal points for your garden by Colorado artist Arabella Tattershall.

Garden Goddesses

“I am enamored with leaves. They keep falling into my pieces, as they would from a tree, and I accept their gifts of seasonal engagement in the guises of frailty, tenacity, color and shape.”

Electric Mavis pedant lights by Melbourne designer Gregory Bonasera and others.

Oh, looks like I’m not the only one who fancied having their love of tea cups illuminated.

Ghost Chairs

‘The plexiglass chairs have ghost-like forms inside them, created with laser technology.

The ghost is a futuristic concept of a chair, 3-dimensionally captured within the boundaries of reality. It gives you a bit of a dramatic feeling: unbelievable, high-tech, but beautiful.’

Hyperrealistic glass flower models at Harvard

‘In the late 19th century, when biologists and botanists from Harvard were sailing all over the world taking specimens of every living creature they could find and sending them back home for study, a very serious problem arose in the accurate preservation of those specimens.’

Helen Musselwhite

Very recently (as in yesterday) I have started playing with Pinterest. More on that later. Thank you Lindsey!

A couple ‘pins’ added by one of the members featured Helen Musselwhite’s pieces. Her stuff is simply…amazing. I stumbled upon her work a while back and I know I had a post either set up or actually published about her but I cannot not seem to find it. So without further ado…

Bon Weekend – a trip to Fantasy Garden

Mom was feeling up for a run to a few nurseries this morning. It breaks our hearts that she lives in an world of incredible pain everyday, so when she says she’s ready, it’s go time! I’m so happy to be back in gardening mode while prepping for the move. We bought two hydrangeas at Rosebank Farms and then stopped by Garden Wise where we bought a gorgeous variegated hosta and a Farfugium japonicum ‘Giganteum’, aka the Giant Leopard Plant. The giant waxy leaves look like a tractor seat. They produce a stalk with yellow daisy-like flowers in the fall.

I follow a blog called ‘Garden Porn’ that is maintained by Michelle Derviss, who is a landscape designer. These are photos of the ‘Pina Colada Garden’ in Novato, CA. I believe this is her actual garden. It’s about as close to my dream garden as it’s going to get. I apologize in advance for the large file weight of the images, but I couldn’t just pick a few. I had a very difficult time narrowing it down to just these…

feather & bone

Lately, I’ve been loosely following all of the amazing blogs I subscribe to in my Google Reader. I happened to miss this new venture from Nectar & Light called feather & bone. They’re really beautiful. I know Aileen would love to have some of these. I know I do!

Here are a few examples:

…Life and death. Art and Science.

I spent two incredibly magical afternoons last November hand selecting the specimens in the ‘Feather & Bone’ collection with the generous support and aid of the Vertebrate Zoology Collections Manager at University of Colorado Museum of Natural History.

There was something spiritual about being in the presence of such carefully cultivated history. Opening the drawers of the specimen cabinets to reveal what hidden treasures – in form of feather and bone – lay within. Hand scribed notes detailing the dates and locations each dated further in time than the last. The light granted me that day washed across the specimens with a gentle touch and ignited the new found power within their feathers, skins and bones – to teach new generations about their history and relevance. Magical.

Each photograph in this series was shot with a vintage Polaroid 680SLR camera. Prints are professionally printed on acid free, archival photo paper with a linen texture. Each photograph is 8×8 inches and is hand signed.

Luisa

I’d like to call it ‘le papillon vert’ and I think it’d be absolutely beautiful in the new studio. Maybe I’ll make enough clams on the 5th to give it a new home.

Made by the wonderfully talented Valentina Ramos.

Elsita | Elsa Mora

I’m wondering if I’m the last person on the planet to discover her, but I absolutely LOVE Elsa Mora’s work. I don’t have a favorite, but this papercut really stood out for me.
