One of the things I missed the most this past summer was visiting new blogs, commenting, and the pure energy I absorb from seeing and reading such creative blogs. I don't know how to tell you this but as much as I love gift wrapping, I need to mix up the posting subjects a bit coming up. The slant of this blog will always be the pleasure and beauty of gifting, but I really do miss my Glamour post days so they will definitely be back on the fall post schedule. I was an interior designer for 20 years (and still am) so you might see a bit more on that subject too. I love anything lovely, beautiful, stylish, original, colourful, creative, fashionable,or artistic, so if I see anything that captures any of those elements, I will be sharing it. Gift Wrap lessons and inspiration will be ongoing. So let's get this pretty mix going..........aren't these illustrations that I borrowed from the very clever and stylish blog Dust Jacket Attic simply stunning?
I love this blog, the layout, her keen design eye, her play list, and why she used the blog name of Dust Jacket Attic . She is a collector of 1st Edition Books with their original artwork......what a great connection. Dust Jacket Attic is one of my summer blog finds and she recently featured these fashion illustrations by artist Alena Lavdovskaya that were done for the Russian department store TSUM. I knew you would enjoy them as much as I did and I know you will love her blog. That's the other thing I missed in my self-absorbed summer of only blogging about gift wrapping..............telling you about the talent that is out there in this blogging world of style. I have a whole list of blogger women I want to share, so add that to the fall post list too.
I don't know what the Australian blogger girls are drinking in their water over there, but it sure gives them some serious style. Every blog has a unique style and I was trying to define what it was that I enjoyed about Dust Jacket Attic whenever I visited. Oops................maybe it's her Man of the Week feature? Nope, she replaced Clive Owen weeks ago, so that can't be it, though I admit that I had more fun commenting with him looking at me on the sidebar. But that's just a personal preference. I think it's the feeling I am wandering around a beautiful department store. I put it together today when I borrowed these gorgeous illustrations.
Go visit and tell her to bring Clive back.
She'll know who is sending you and make sure your speaker is on too.
