{and now, four years later...}

Time...where goest thou? 
But a figment 
of imaginations, dreams 
of our children, inner child hidden
desires, fires unquenched, yearning
learning patience but burning, 

Light from within
the heart soul spirit God
releases me in His glory
Ecstasy, a phoenix from
the flames Oh Joanie Joanie
They did not understand
your heart,

{if you like cowboys...}


...I'm switching gears so fast your heads will be spinning....

...THIS is the funniest blog I've ever read. I've been keeping up with her for the last few weeks, and now I am sharing her with you. 

You have to give her a chance...I know it's different than the things I usually blog about...but honestly, Ree is the funniest women I've ever heard{read?} — and her blog is also sweet and inspirational. She features her cowboy husband, her children, her animals, ranch life, great food, and beautiful photography{her own}. She even shares great "how-to's" for photos. 

And I have NEVER, I mean NEVER, seen so many people comment on a blog, EVER! The comments run in the 100's for just one post. I've even seen posts with 1000's of comments! Amazing. You really should give her blog a read. It's just so unique. You will find yourself checking back in every day.

This is one of my favorites posts, but they're all wonderful: read about her love affair with Marlboro Man, a real cowboy and her husband, and how they met. She has regular contests, too, like coming up with a caption for a photo, or voting for Miss Mustang 2008. It's just great fun...and you come away feeling a real connection with Ree and her family. 

Thank you, Ree!

Anyway, just wanted to share some of my joy. ~ J

I promised more Lacroix photos and here they are. These are ready-to-wear and couture lines for Spring 2008. I think he is a master of color! I could just weep when I look at his clothes! And I love the multi-hued stockings and the zebra shoes...the stuff of dreams, at least my princess dreams....I think I'll take a little nap... ~ J

{fashion passion}

Christian Lacroix Spring 2008

My intention is not to make this a fashion blog, rather an obsession blog, but at the moment, this is my eye candy. Fabulous, no?

I love how wearable his clothes are, even though they are couture. {Oops. I just realized these are part of the RTW collection for spring. I will post the couture photos tomorrow. Sorry!} The color and print combinations just make me swoon. And the silhouettes...!

On a more personal note, this has been a terribly unproductive week for me and I am feeling very frustrated. I have so many creative ideas and things I want to do, that I become overwhelmed; it paralyzes me and I can't to anything.

I'm looking forward to next week being more fruitful and, hopefully, will share it here with you.

The magazine production will start up again in the next week or two. As much as I enjoy writing and graphic design, it keeps me from doing my own creative work. Oh well, a girl's gotta eat.

Wishing you all a happy and productive day. ~ J

To live content with small means; 
to seek elegance rather than luxury; 
and refinement rather than fashion; 
to be worthy, not respectable; 
and wealthy, not rich; 
to study hard, think quietly, talk gently, act frankly; 
to listen to stars and birds, to babes and sages, with open heart; 
to bear all cheerfully, do all bravely, await occasion, hurry never
in a word, to let the spiritual, unbidden and unconscious, grow up through the common. 

This is to be my symphony.

~ William Henry Channing

{recycling beautifully}

I had to post another note to you today because I've come across some lovely jewelry/art via Jennine at her fashion blog

TOUCH collaborates with emerging designers to create hand-made, environmentally-friendly products/art. Mana Bernardes created all the lovely pieces you see here using bamboo toothpicks, nylon, pearls, recycled bottles and recycled phone cards.

These are beautiful, wearable, thoughtful designs. Thank you, Mana. ~ J

{prada love}

I don't know how you other bloggers do it all. I am struggling to spend time with you here and still keep my head above water in the rest of my life!

Well, that's enough feeling sorry for myself for today; time to seize the day!

I'm sure many of you have already seen Prada's 2008 collections, but I am going to share her spring collection with you anyway. I love Miuccia Prada and her contemporary take on bohemian style.

Her colors and silhouettes are dreamy. 

That's all for now. I'll probably post again later today...'til then...enjoy! ~J

We had snow here in the south today {sorry, no photos}, and it has been a great day to stay inside, all cozy and warm. 

I have taken the time to do a lot of blog reading....there are SO many talented and creative individuals out there! You ALL inspire me!!! And what a small world it really matter where I go, I find that  we all aspire to the same truths, all hold the same things close to our hearts, all turn our faces toward the sun. ~ J
