I am hopelessly consumed with mapping out my plans for the new year (more on that later), sketching, making lists and preparing for the year ahead!. Today I made a wish box full of antique lace goodness and sparkleys. And colorful tights. I know I always say this but I wish for more color in my life, in my surroundings, in what I wear. Juicy, lush color and pattern. So today I wore a garden to start the year off right!

Have a beautiful New Years!

  1. Now those are some tights to get you in the mood for spring! Im so glad the new year is here, aren’t you? Everything seems much fresher— its even a new decade!
    happy painting!

  2. Lovely how the colors of the tights correspond with the box, made in different eras but both an homage to nature’s artistry.

    I was reading through your archives and see you sometimes request identification of unusual plants you’ve seen on your rambles. I didn’t know the answers, but thought of a book you’d enjoy:
    “The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady.”

    It is a full-color reproduction of the personal journal artist/naturalist Edith Holden kept for a year in 1906. Her charming, graceful, botanically-accurate watercolors of english country wildflowers are interpersed with famous poems and quotes pertaining to each month, penned in her own tidy, feminine hand. It’s a treat to read, a delightful way to learn about wildflowers, and the illustrations are dreamy.

    You can probably easily find it on Amazon or Alibris…

    Happy New Year !

  3. Happy 2010 to You!! I am swooning over that lovely box and such pretty golden tinged numbers and letters!! Sigh! : ) And all of your recent work,too! I adore all the detail in your beautiful paintings!

  4. Happy New Year, Sarah! The photograph of the book cover (it is a book cover, right?) and the floral tights has me smiling tonight. What a great idea! If I were a designer for Anthropologie, I’d completely borrow your idea for their spring catalogue! Imagine a model wearing floral tights like yours, serving prettily patterned tea on a floral serving tray… Yep, I’d totally steal this idea from you. ;p
