I have a talented friend, Kelly(in too many ways to mention...painting, printing, yoga, and the list goes on)...She has a lovely blog Kelly Loves Whales. We met up for coffee awhile back and had such a wonderful time...then a couple weeks later she sent me this! I am so in love with this painting. It reminds me of everything I love...it was made just for me. You can see more of her masterpieces here...xo

We returned yesterday evening from the beach (more about that later). Anyway, I was catching up on some of my favorite reads and was happily reminded that the winter TOAST collection was out (thank you Holly). I quickly started perusing the site for my "I heart..." this week and like an addict, I couldn't stop myself. I quickly realized that TOAST deserves its own "I heart..." post. I can honestly say that if I could shop in one store for the rest of my life TOAST would be it...ironic, since I do not own anything from there at the time (darn exchange rate). Until that day, when my closet is full of their magnificent pieces I will anxiously await the arrival of my catalog (oh and Holly, I completely get the smell thing)...I hope my giddiness is contagious...happy Monday! xoxo
I heart this coat (it may be my first TOAST wardrobe addition).
I heart these towels.
I heart this "hottie cover."
I heart this nightie.
I heart this cutlery.
I heart this jacket.
I heart this flannel bedlinen.
I heart this scarf.
I heart this tunic.
I heart this cashmere cardigan.

I love Thursdays...right now I am loving Thursdays because it is a time for me to share photographers that I admire and that inspire me in everything I do. This next flickr friend is near and dear to my heart. She is not only a friend via flickr, but I would consider her a true friend. One of those magical gals I have met through the beautiful world of blogging. She makes my day. I have her to thank for introducing me to Shutter Sisters (I am not quite sure I ever did without it). She has been such a major source of encouragement and praise regarding my own work...I am not sure I am ready to share...oh she is just to good to keep to myself. I introduce you to Ms. Mayalu...many of you already know her...
She has an amazing blog maya*made. She shares with her audience a glimpse into a creative, meaningful life. A live that doesn't sweat the small things, that appreciates natural surroundings and focuses on the all important family. Her photos do the same for me.
In the past I have mentioned my pull toward the country...her photos take me there without leaving my urban home in. They are simply beautiful and fresh. Through them I can almost smell the fresh air, hear the birds and wind in the tall grass. I will not lie, I often spend way too long daydreaming in Maya's photostream.
Thank you Maya for doing what comes so naturally to you. It is such a gift to me and the rest of the lucky bloggers out there who have gotten to know you. If you haven't already...go do it now...so worth your time....xxoo
