Of Flora and Frida



It's raining torrentially here in Houston, 
Nero's branches are stretching for Spring.

Oh I adore Frida - she was so brilliantly bold and colourful especially for her time - but even for now! She is one of those characters that too easily gets forgotten - so thanks for the reminder. {ps you are having torrential rain in Houston too? The whole world is swimming!}

Evening V,

Frida was a powerhouse, alright. Such a brave spirit.
The portrait above comes from a book about her called "I Will Never Forget You." It contains lots of stunning photos and of course, her art.
It's a very lovely coffee table tome.
We have had a bit of a downpour over the last few days here in Houston. But of course, nothing like the deluge in your parts.
I hope the recovery comes fast and goes smoothly.
Cheers and best, Alcira

Love this beautiful clever pairing - it's quite perfect! And I love that light fixture as well!

Afternoon Q,

Glad you enjoyed the bower power.
It's verdant and pretty and in bloom -- a perfect foil for a rainy Sunday ;)
That fixture's good stuff -- Nate Berkus didn't disappoint in there.
Cheers, Alcira
