Color Love

Happy Friday!
 
These flowers are from a very beautiful bouquet I received from my friend’s wedding.
They were dying so I took off the petals and found these beautiful colors.
I love the intense pomegranates splashed with the light lemons and ochres!
 
I hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Happy Holi

 
Happy Holi!
Oh I wish I was in India. The Holi festival celebrated by the Hindus marks the end of winter and the coming of spring and also commemorates the victory of good over evil. To commemorate Lord Krishna, a god who defeated a demon and liked to pull pranks, people throw colored pigment at each other. The throwing of the muti colored pigment also signifies equality.  
Its a day to give each other happiness, love and a great big burst of color pigment in the face!
I love it!
 
check out some of these pics of the day on CNN

sweet treats from a sweet friend

 Today is a great day! I just received these amazing marshmallow treats from my friend Dana for watching her dog Lucy while she went away for the weekend to Japan. She got them at a place called Marshmallow Elegance. I'm obsessed with marshmallows and these are by far one of the best assortments I have ever seen. She also got me some salted cherry blossoms which were actually pretty good and fun to eat. Got to go try another one! Hope your day is going as great as mine.

a whisper of spring

 
Spring is finally here! I can only feel a slight whisper of it in the air today and its wonderful!
 
 
 
I started painting some petal whispers to make a new spring print and I'm pumped!

some color love


 
Today's color love comes from one of my favorite blogs- Street Dept
 It beautifully captivates undiscovered street art in Philly. 
 I find such great inspiration from every post and love walking on the street and seeing an artwork that he posted!

my new found love and I'm smitten.

 
 

I will try just about anything once especially teas or juices. I have tried Kombucha at Wholefoods a couple of times. It always looks pretty but the taste is not so great.
Despite my bad experience I kept hearing about how great Kombucha is from friends.
I decided do some research and to try it one more time.

 
Kombucha is a green or black tea that is fermented twice.
Once with sweetener like organic evaporated cane juice the second infusing herbs, flowers, and spices. Kombucha is rich in probiotics and anti-oxidants that improve digestion and boost your immune system.

 
 It’s a great healthy beverage but I have never seem to dig the taste until I tried this batch.
I work right next to The Jharoka at 543 in the Philadelphia Navy Yard and they recently acquired a new juicer named Amberleigh Krough. She has been whipping up some fantastic juices that I absolutely love and she completely changed my mind about Kombucha. Its called Forever Fruit and it’s all organic, homemade and tastes like sparkling grape juice. After I felt so great and ready to take on the rest of the day. 

 
It’s my new found love and I'm smitten.

 Try to find a local Juicer or a Juice bar that makes their own Kombucha. It probably will not only taste better but have more of those awesome anti-oxidants!
