san fran inspiration ... japanese garden

This Japanese Tea Garden in the Golden Gate Park was sublime. Just perfect. Love the round "Dr. Seuss" trees as my cousin calls them. The bridge is entirely made of wood too if you can believe it...

more san fran inspiration...redwoods!

How beautiful are redwood trees? So so so tall, it's breathtaking. And they smell good too. I got to see a ton of them in Muir Woods, after crossing the Golden Gate bridge.

And look what I found when I biked around Angel Island?! A beautiful little friendly deer. We stared at eachother for a while.

leaving on a jet plane

Going on a soul searchin' journey to Kauai, Hawaii for 2 weeks, Bloomers. This Bloomer's soul needs a serious rest! But then I realized I got so carried away with my house sale pictures, that I forgot to post the rest of my inspirations from San Francisco way back in first soul searching trip in a series. Ok, I wanna show you! I'll post for the next few days, and then then maybe I'll have some inspiration from Kauai when I get back! These paper flowers I saw in a window of a jewellery store in San Fran - so pretty. Reminded me of Lynn Bloomer and all the paper flowers she made for Amy's cool funky wedding.

Michelle Williams, new muse

I liked the lace around her neckline - so delicate:

whoever styled her for the Oscars is amazing...i love her red lipstick...never would have paired it with the yellow but it just works!

Loved her pixed hair cut and make up here too...good styling!

Seems somewhat out of character for her, with such a low cut dress, but I do like it.

Casual wear...I like this style!

How did Michelle Williams get to be such a style icon? She was a bit frumpy dumpy in her Dawson Creek days, remember? Then, I saw a picture of her at the SAG Awards the other day and realized how much I like her dress and her pixie cut. And then I realized that I generally like everything she wears to red carpet events. And even her casual wear. She has such a neat, fitted vintage style. What do you think?

grey on grey

I love this picture that Lynn Bloomer sent to me. The grey dresser looks beautiful on the light grey wall...I do indeed love monochromatic colour schemes. {Remodelista}
