Yesterday…..all day….

… hair looked like an exhibit in a contemporary art museum.

You know.

A little awkward and uncertain of its place in the world.

Just like the paintings that you stand in front of and stare at for the longest time because they are a little odd and a little eccentric and you just can’t decide if you like the art or not.

Is it the greatest thing since sliced bread…..

…or should the artist just have called it a day and started from scratch.

Art and hair can be equally confusing.

So today I’m pulling my contemporary art back in a pony tail….

… remove all doubt. 🙂

Happy random Saturday to you and here’s a fun site where you can transform any quote into a work of art.


I loved this house tour from the moment I saw it.

The house had me at the name…..Hoop Top House.

And now I wish it luck on a brand new chapter in its story.


A long time ago in a land far away I made this memory wreath.

I never even thought what a great decoration it would make for a graduation party.

Good thing my friend Dawn was there to inspire me.


You can see her wreath….here.

    I don't need to know about Dwellinggawker! Ack! Another place for me to spend too much time! ;) And I've always loved your picture wreath--Dawn's spin is nice, too. I'm not one for lots of picture frames on flat surfaces and that's a beautiful, artful solution.

    Enjoyed your post Karianne and want to thank you for introducing me to the awesome Recite website (so going to have fun there) and DwellingGawker (to which I've submitted my registration). Never heard of either of these awesome sites! I registered for the Building A Creatively Made Business 2.0 several weeks ago and can't wait to get started on May 20th! I pinned the awesome homemade room freshener pucks and will be making these ASAP. Happy Mother's Day Karianne!
