RIP Elizabeth Taylor

It was a sad commute this morning...I was on the entrance ramp to I-35 when I heard the news, Elizabeth Taylor had passed away. Sad, sad morning...RIP.

Some great quotes from the Woman:

The problem with people who have no vices is that generally you can be pretty sure they're going to have some pretty annoying virtues.

If someone's dumb enough to offer me a million dollars to make a picture, I'm certainly not dumb enough to turn it down.

Did you know Elizabeth Taylor was the first actress to make over $1 million...this tidbit comes from

I thought you should know I follow a ton of design blogs to the point I can barely keep up and tend to scroll through them rather fast...I'm all about the visual. Today, Trendir posted a fantastic blog about a Turkish rug company, Miinu and I had to share. Miinu takes 50 year old carpet and turns it into a modern masterpiece of colorful fun. See for yourself.

Seriously, the multi-color can go in ANY fun!!!

Words need not describe this chosen rug;-)

I was off to such a good blog start in the new year then somewhere along the way fell off the wagon. So how 'bout a quote I read on Twitter this am. Enjoy!

Coolest Art Project

I stumbled across the coolest art project in my home state, Louisiana, while perusing the freshome blog (click on the link to read the entire story). I think it's a great idea considering all that New Orleans has suffered and is still suffering. Kudos to Candy Chang the urban planner/artist for installing this public art project. Without further adu here is a montage of the cool project. Enjoy!!!
