philip treacy

With the royal wedding just two days away, I couldn’t resist a post about the fabulous Philip Treacy! Milliner to the royals and stars, his headpieces are breathtaking works of art…I can only imagine how busy he has been preparing for the big day! In an interview with Style.com, he would not reveal who will be wearing his creations but that clients coming to him are accessorizing Chanel Couture, Valentino Couture and Gaultier Couture…safe to say we will be seeing many of his gorgeous hats on Friday…I wonder if the bride herself will be seen in an original Philip Treacy masterpiece? I guess we will just have to wait and see! Enjoy!

bold brush strokes

with easter still on my mind, I thought I would share with you two paintings I purchased last summer…they are oil on canvas paintings of brown and white eggs by provincetown artist jo hay…I immediately fell in love with her bold brush strokes and soothing sea glass palette…from the rhythm of the paint to the texture of the canvas, they never cease to amaze me…
