PLYWERK

Do you happen to remember these?



I posted about these lovely works a few weeks back.  They were and still are part of an ingenious exhibit hosted by Olio United.  The artists' pieces are displayed on PLYWERK...sustainable wood or bamboo panels; creating display-ready masterpieces, eliminating high cost framing (which make beautiful art more accessible to the masses).  

Needless to say, I was completely smitten and have not been able to get this Portland based company off my mind...
I have visions of what would happen if their panels should happen to meet my photographs.  Ummm...I sense the beginning of a lovely relationship...more on that in a couple of days (Although I would love to spill it right now!)....

In the mean time do check out their site, facebook page and etsy shop featuring the work of  kim oanh nguyen, the "muse" behind the product is a crazy/amazing photographer and more than deserves your attention...If you have photos of your own that you are dying to display in a creative simply beautiful way you should really check out what they can do...I can vouch for the quality....I wonder if I can get rid of all my frames?  just a thought...

my in-your-dreams beach house...

No need to worry sweet friends, I have found my beach house and its pretty darn near my favorite beach in the entire world (our of the ones I have been to anyway)...














I first fixed upon this gem back in October...Design Sponge did a lovely before and after post in its honor and I have been in love with it ever since.  The only problem was at the time, it was not available...then the other day I was perusing my regular home listing sites and guess what (I bet you can)?  It's for sale!  I cannot tell you how excited I am...now another problem arises...ummm I guess you can guess that too.  1.5 million may be a bit more than I can swing on a second home...yep just a tiny bit...xo mrs. french

if you happen to acquire it before I have a chance to, please feel free to email me...the frenches would love to be your summer guests...thanks so much...muwah!!!

I'm notorious for it...I never remember birthdays.  Which is why it is no surprise at all that I missed my beloved blog's big day.  On March 9 bliss turned 1!  I need to make up for this somehow...a giveaway!  Leave a comment between now and Sunday at 9pm pacific time and you could win 3 photographs...you pick!  

I need to thank all of you for one of the best years of my life...I have been amazed by all the beautiful, talented folks I have met this year and by the pure goodness all around me...you have truly helped me discover lovely things within myself.  thank you for the journey...I have no intention of stopping anytime soon...
