Ok, so it’s monday and what a blue one it is. I’m just gonna say it. My weekend kinda sucked. I left for what was supposed to be a fun quick Las Vegas jaunt Thursday, but the trip was kind of cursed to begin with. Before I left, I received this frustrating and annoying e-mail from a client. Basically, work drama. I hate leaving on vacation with the feeling of impending doom when I return. Unfortunately, the e-mail required me to make a much dreaded phone call the following day, so all of thursday was spent driving and travelling, on long boring roads… with nothing to do except mull/relive/rethink/rehash/ the morning’s dampering e-mail. Sadly, for the rest of the trip, a dark cloud followed me. It was hard to let work matters go mentally, and to make matters worse, I caught a cold thursday night. So… Friday, I battled the sniffles, and by the time I got home on Saturday, I was in full blown congestion/runny nose. (sigh).. and I didn’t win any money either. (sigh)
On a brighter note. When I got home, I was thrilled and awed at all the responses I got from my last post. I’m so amazed at the variety of locations that you all are viewing this humble blog from. Thank you so much for the kind words and its so comforting to know there are so many other people out there that share an appreciation for a happy mundane life! (by the way, please continue to tell me where you’re at! represent!)So for today’s Blue monday post, I wanted to post these images from March/April’s Australian Vogue Living. I realize it may be old news for those who live outside the US, but since International issues of magazines are slower to arrive, March/April 2006 is still new to us american readers (and still on newstands)- I love love love the scandinavian pottery pieces on the cover and corresponding editorial spread. So simple and modern, yet homey and chic. I would never have thought that navy blues and black would go together but I love it here and now am obsessed to do something with it. What do you think?
