Just in, original works by artist Jackie Clark Mancuso which are headed to the framer and will be up on the walls and offered soon. Author of Paris-Chien and Hudson in Provence, two books we adore at Watson Kennedy. I have long been a fan of her work, and was tickled awhile back when I saw she posted a fab drawing of Bailey on Instagram. I contacted her in thanks, the conversation continued and I asked her if we could show some of her work. So along with the above pieces, we will also be offering original pet portraits from Jackie, as well. More on that later. Look for another post soon. Over the moon to add her artwork to our walls, if only temporarily, until they find permanent homes.
I was honored when asked to write one of the articles for the current flower magazine. My love of Instagram was showing, as I interviewed 3 of the top flower photographers in the business, Miguel Flores-Vianna, Stacy Bass and Ngoc Minh Ngo. They shared their tips for setting up & shooting images from smart phones. It is something so many of us do daily from our mobile devices, so getting some pointers is always a good thing. The trio could not have been more delightful and gracious all along the way. Copies arrived at both shops and you can also check it out via the flower website.
I have shared in the past my love of Instagram. I find it so inspiring. Snippets & snapshots of all my favorite things by many of my favorite folks. It is also an outlet for me to share little pieces of beauty or inspiration throughout my day. From the first eve of Summer on the deck at WestWard, to a little tableau of shop goods, to a shot of the jasmine growing up the wall at The Gainsborough into our living room window, excitement over a new book written by a friend, to the passing of someone I have long admired–moments to share.

A lovely, lovely Sunday to you! We have our 8 year old godson Magnus and his family coming over to the island this afternoon. He had said to TPS awhile back that he wanted to cook with him sometime, so today is the day. Can’t wait to see what they whip up for us!
May your Sunday be all you wish it to be.
